1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! I need a vote I cant decide on a button :0) on: July 11, 2007 07:52:44 AM
I'm voting green, for the same reason as SkitzoLeezra.

Such a fun little dress! You make me wish I had small children.  Wink
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Attention All the Real Ladies Out There! I Need Your Input! Slightly offensive! on: June 23, 2007 03:09:11 PM
I agree with L-train and mercurialme.

Talyra makes excellent points, and I'm behind thrift junkie all the way.

I'd definitely wear a 'Real Women Eat' or 'Real Women Speak Up' shirt, but you need a 'Lady' theme, I know.... maybe post-Ladyfest you can branch out more?

I'm with Bigmouth--- the statements make a bigger impact grouped together.

Besides, if I saw a shirt that just said 'Real Women Drink from the Carton' or something, I'd think 'Wow, that must be slang, I wonder what it could mean...'  Wink

Good luck with the LadyFest!

Personally, I like it without buttons, and I think the darts add a little more character--- interesting details are always good.

Great shirt!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Do you have knitting dreams? on: June 23, 2006 07:21:48 AM
When my Mom first tried teaching me to knit, I couldn't get it at all. I'd cry, fume, stomp off. Then I had a dream of two hands knitting, making the same stitches over and over again; by the time I woke up I had the right idea and was ready to learn.

The only other knitting dream I had was considerably weirder: a prophet commanded me to knit an ultra-fine, lacy, complicated, ENORMOUS blanket for Jesus Christ. If this dream meant something, I can't imagine what... I can't make a decent sweater, filmy lace is out of the question.  Smiley

Well, nearly a year has passed since the question was asked, but Yes there are two or three craftsters in Las Cruces. I am Gregory's cherished girlfriend. =)
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: keyhole scarf on: December 25, 2005 09:48:50 AM
Additional Explanations:

   The keyhole is just a slit you can poke the other end fo the scarf through.  Cast on just like you would for any scarf and knit like normal till it's about 9 inches long,
    Next row, knit halfway across, and put the other half of the stitches on a stitch holder.  work the half still on the needle for about 3 inches.  You've created a flap half the width of your scarf.  break off the yarn leaving a bit of a tail, put these stitches on a holder. 
    Now put the stitches from the first holder on the needle, and knit them till they're the same length as the first set,(thereby making the second little flap) ending at the outside edge of the row.  As you knit your way back when you get to the stitches on the holder just knit them too, thereby closing the gap and connecting those two little flaps.   You now have a slit, and all there is left to do is keep on knittin' till your scarf is as long as you like. Weave the ends in.
   To wear it just tuck the long end through the slit, and it'll keep everything tucked.  Very good in windy weather.

   If you like to knit scarves the long way, (casting a zillion stitches onto a circular needle and knitting till it's 8 inches wide or so), then cast on your zillion stitches and knit in the usual way till it's half as wide as you want.
   Next row, knit about nine inches, bind off the next twenty stitches, knit to the end.
   Next row, knit across to where the bound off bit is, cast on twenty stitches, knit to the end.
   Now just knit away merrily row after row until the scarf is wide enougn, and then bind off.  Weave in your ends, and you're done.

 (These explanations brought to you by the snailmeister's mommy.)
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: DIY Cloth Pads Tutorial on: June 16, 2005 11:59:20 AM
      After carefully poring over the 40-odd pages of this post, I ordered a DivaCup.  My first attempt at using it was... horrible, an entirely new kind of discomfort--- but I tried again the next day, modifying my technique slightly, and had no problems! After work, I'm going to find fabric for cloth pads.

     This post is nothing that hasn't been said before, and doesn't really contribute anything---- but I'm ridiculously proud of myself for conquering the DivaCup. SO proud!
     Amen to all the posters who said they felt womanly for taking charge of their periods and not buying into the culture that treats menstruation as something disgusting to be quietly managed with bleached, plastic-y over-priced disposable products.
     I really think someone ought to make me a medal, or maybe a trophy. Or maybe I'll make a foxy little pouch for the Diva--- the one that comes with is pretty cheap.
     Thank you, all previous posters, especially thixle and sedrasmom!
     Which reminds me... I have a couple of friends who thought I was "gross" for using non-applicator tampons---ha!  Wait til they hear about THIS!!
