1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Ideas for an animal park wedding on: February 03, 2006 01:23:05 PM
I have been dreaming of getting married in a drive thru animal park in Missouri.

I really think I've been here. I can't remember what it's called, or exactly where it is, but I think my parents took us as little kids when we went to St. Louis. I think it sounds like a fun idea!

mizuiro, love your clapotis! I love how it looks like a rainbow!

Seeing these pics kind of makes me want to do another one!! I love the first (and only) one I made. It's so great. I wear it a lot.

Another thing that's good to have that I put in my own DIY wedding planner was sheets of business card holders, to collect the cards you'll pick up when you visit sites and vendors. and notebook paper. (did you mention notebook paper already?)

We did this at our wedding (got the idea from Darcy Miller's wedding in MS Weddings). It was great. We got some great notes. I didin't want a traditional guest book either.

It ended up being tough to find vases or bowls big enough, but I finally found two huge vases at Hobby Lobby. Then, because she thought it would be cute, my mom had someone paint our names and the date on the vases in a really cheesy way.  Without asking me first. Roll Eyes Oh well. The original idea was still good.

And we did this:

we just had our engagement photo framed with a large ivory mat, set it out on a pretty table easel without the glass and had people sign that.

at our rehearsal dinner.
5  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID on: January 21, 2006 10:20:47 PM
So, anyhow, has anyone tried space-dying (I think it's called), to get the same striped effect one finds w/ Noro, etc.?  You know, the relatively large blocks of color instead of color repeats?  (and if this was discussed earlier, sorry, searched but didn't find it).  I think I can figure out how . . . sorta.

I was just reading about this on the knittyboard... I will see if I can find the tutorial for it.

Okay- here it is:


I just tried kool-aid dying for the first time tonight on an orphan skein of peach superwash merino I had lying around. I will take pics once the skein dries and post them soon. I think it's pretty! It was a lot of fun. Messy, but fun. I borrowed Nutella's idea about putting it on a rack- I think that was good, although I had to use a lot of kool-aid! Lots of reds, and a few patches of berry blue.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sewing to save money? on: November 27, 2005 07:59:08 PM
Someone I know brought up the idea of learning how to sew so she could copy clothing that she wanted in the store, thereby saving money.

I don't personally sew, so I don't know this for sure, but I have heard from a number of people that sewing your own clothes really doesn't save you that much money. Is this true? It would make sense to me, since I have found it to be true for knitting.

I just keep thinking of Craft Corner Deathmatch: "Because it's cheaper and easier to just buy stuff!" I thought I would ask people who actually sew!

I go to two SnBs, and I keep intending to go to a third, but haven't made it yet.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Wood, bamboo, metal, plastic? Which is your favorite kind of needle on: November 14, 2005 08:53:35 PM
Ohhhhhh, I LOVE my Addi Turbos! I have two of them. I would buy Addis in every size, if I had unlimited fundage.

I just bought a pair of Clover bamboo straight needles. They're all right, but I don't like them as much as my Addis.

Someone mentioned the Target bamboos upthread- I bought a couple of them too- they're worth less than the $1 I paid for them! I got a set of "5s", and one of the needles was a 5, the other was a 4. And they were rough as hell.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is your knitting bugaboo? on: November 09, 2005 01:01:20 PM
I hates sewing pieces together, weaving in tails, and expansive stretches of plain stockinette.

I hate sewing pieces and weaving in tails as well. Especially the sewing pieces together. I can handle the occasional weaving in of tail, but I don't love it.
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Blackberry from Knitty KAL on: November 07, 2005 03:43:04 PM
What a pretty color!

I am pretty sure I'm going to use Decadence from KnitPicks, but it seems like there's been a run on it! The color I want, as well as several other ones, are all sold out until the end of November. That type of curvy front seems to be super popular with cardigans this year, so I want to do it before it goes out of style!!

I just checked out the book Knitting Without Tears, so I hope I'll be able to use that to adjust the length of Blackberry (as well as trying to make it with as few seams as possible!!. It seems like such a neat sweater.
