34  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / *grrr* it won't stop rolling up- any suggestions? on: September 05, 2005 07:04:25 AM
I'm making a chunky knit scarf for the up-coming harsh winter, i used stockinette which as i now realise was a big mistake because it rolls up ( hey i was fed up of just plain ole garter stitch). I'm aware that i could make a border of garter stitch around it- but i have no idea how to do it.
All i can think of is ironing- and lots of it- any ideas that'll work- plse help- it looks so good when it's held apart!  Smiley
35  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Cool nail designs! on: September 05, 2005 06:56:17 AM
 Here's a couple of ideas i found out of a magazine:-

(1) Tiger nails, the one in the mag used pink and black (though i suppose you could use the real tiger colours- eg orange + black)  paint the whole of the nail using the pink and then using a black nail pen paint stripes on.

(2) Rule Britannia! this is a tricky one which requires patience, but they look sooo cool when they're done.
You need blue nail polish, and a red and a white nail pen.
Paint your nails blue- leave to dry for ten minutes. Paint a white cross on your nails (leave to dry again) then paint a diagonal line with the white pen (so you get the whole of the white part of the union jack) again leave to dry. Then to finsih off paint tiny red lines on top of the white ones to get the complete look- get a piccy off google- so you know exactly what the flag looks like to help.

(3) Finally- the tartan nails.
You need a toffee/caramel colour nail polish, and a red and black nail pen.
Paint your nail using the caramel colour. Then use the pens to get the tartan look (again go on the internet for inspiration)
Happy nail painting!
Please post any other designs you have, or pm me - if you do any of these please post piccies! Smiley
36  COOKING / Dessert / DOES THIS COUNT AS A RECIPE??? on: August 16, 2005 10:07:12 AM
Well- heck it sure does taste good and is super easy.

Ingredients- one cup of tea/ coffee/ hot choccy (a hot drink)
                 one (or more) chocolate biscuits

This is a twist on the traditional dunking biscuits!

I suggest using a thick chocolate biscuit (like a penguin- no not the anmal!)
Bite off one corner, then turn the biscuit upside down and bite off another corner.
Place the biscuit into the drink- suck on the biscuit until you taste liquid (or feel it as warm) then take the biccy out and eat.
If you've done it right the middle of the biscuit will have melted and you'll have a biteful (or two) of melted choccy heaven. Enjoy!
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I am so annoyed *grr* ..... and needing your help on: August 16, 2005 09:51:02 AM
I wanted to make a shrug for winter (ok- you shrug haters don't start!)  Anyhoo I searched for all shrug related posts and found a great bunch of instructions, thought i'd got the general gist and knitted away (I have to sit around a lot- I've had surgery on my foot).
I've ended up with one part that looks completely ridiculous and just won't fit. I was wondering if anyone had an actual pattern (like a sewing one where the actual shapes are printed instead of just written instructions)
I hope somebody can help. Thanks!
38  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Crafty related (honest!) free web space- which do you recommend? on: August 07, 2005 06:46:00 AM
hi guys! i'm a 'budding writer' i suppose, and i wanna have a website (or at least some web space) to write about my opinions on fashion and crafty related stuff... (which isn't always welcomed...ahem, something along the lines of- that's not on topic! sorry- i sometimes can't help myself!) *yikes*
so i was wondering- i know some of you guys 'n' gals have blogs- any recommendations? i want something that's free but sort of easy to work with (i'm not a computer genius!)
hope i've made myself reasonably clear- thanks!
all recommendations welcomed!thanks!

39  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted cherries? on: June 21, 2005 10:00:06 AM
 Smiley hi- i was just wondering if anyone could help me. I'm making a pair of light green mittens (hey i know- a little out of season for a british summer but i want the technique perfected in time for winter!) I want to knit a pair of cherries- the stalk would be simple enough but the actual fruit and leaves may prove to be a little too difficult (I'm inspired by tatty devine's knitted brooches- espesh the knitted tattoo- sweet! sorry couldn't find a pic)
So without further ado, and without more insane rambling- can anyone help? can sum1 help a knitter who can only deal with simple stuff?? do people think i should just knit a tiny square and fold and sew into a circle? is someone a genius???
i'll shut up now- thanks for looking!
ps i only mean a small bunch of cherries- small enough to go on the back of the mitten hands as decoration- not insanely large cherries!
40  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yay! I've finished my exams- but now what to do *hmm* on: June 10, 2005 11:13:32 AM
I've made one knitted bag (hugaus frau- or something like that) and am part way through another one- just need more supplies, but I'd like a new project and am a little unsure what to do.
I'm pretty new to knitting, I love it, and can do knit stitch (obviously!) purl stitch- therefore I can do stockintte but not much else. my little try with circular needles didn't work out so I wondered what else I could make. Any suggestions?
PS I'm also taking part in a debating competition in July and I don't know what to wear- any suggestions for looking the part of a mean debater but still stylish??? sheesh, you're being asked a lot- but hey- you're the right people to ask!
Thanks Smiley *huggles*
