The idea is great.  I'd bet the extra shelving is better at arms reach above rather than on a nightstand.  I hadn't thought of that...mmmmm....

BUT i'm replying bc id recently torn the back out of a ratty bookshelf & replaced it with a fitted sheet i had laying around.  The back of the shelf became a design element in the room rather than a blank, void space...it was a 180 for the shelf AND the wall: maybe that'd dress up the space where the TV used to sit & unify the side shelves.

I'm totally doing this next weekend!! excellent idea you've got!

I made magnets for my technologically advanced and computer obsessed brother.  I got the idea from:

I'm looking for Function keys to make this:

Now that I'm obsessed with this I can't find any trashed keyboards!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the best clay for knitting needle stitch stoppers? on: January 02, 2006 10:01:29 PM
Turns out my work has some sculpey flex, which bakes and then is still sorta flexible.  Inspite of this I tried my hand at the regular stuff I bought and was pretty pleased with the results.

I did shape them around size 8s but they fit up to 10.5 snugly.  I liked it.  I tossed the needle around in my tote with it on, just to see if it'd come off...and the stopper didn't, so I'm super happy.

I'll give the flex stuff a shot within the week though, just to see Cheesy

I was happy to read this thread, so I headed to Wal*Mart just minutes ago and picked up some Sculpey.  Only to later read on that some don't like it because it does get hard?!  aahhgg.  What is unwanted about having hardened stoppers?  is it that they won't accomodate as many needles? 

(I also have some Model Majic too so it's no huge deal)
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: November 29, 2005 08:19:50 AM
I understand too, I learned how to knit this summer and was practicing with some hideous yarn and...well...I *was* just beginning so it looked quite shabby.  The first week when everyone saw it they were like, "ummm...hummmph hope that takes you places." or "wow, that's neat (super sarcasm inserted here)"   After my first scarf, everyone wants a scarf.  I've not knitted myself something since that first test rectangle.  I've finished 4 scarves and started an additional 4(heaven's knows when those'll be done) I'm not too disgruntled because the people who are receiving them know the work that goes into them mainly, but it's the 'outsiders' that get to me. 

Folks that don't know what it takes, the hours, my aching joints and say to me "Hey hows about a hat or something?" ARRRGH! 

But...I'm not tooo upset because after my first 2 scarves (it's all I have time to learn right now; but one can get pretty far with simple knits and purls) my bestest buddy asked me to teach her, and she weeks later taught her brother and sister in law, and over thanksgiving my younger (college age) brother asked me to teach him!  So it's kinda neat how my interest in knitting is being 'passed' on.

If people ask me to knit them something, I usually tell them the truth.  'I'm in the middle of a project', 'I honestly don't know how to make <insert project here>  yet', 'If you want to save time I'll teach you', 'errr as soon as you get back to me with yarn...sure'  (the last is great because people seem to be intimidated by yarn or something because they hardly get back with me!)

I love knitting, and enjoy the idea that others want something I've created.  I just want to enjoy something all myself.  How about you?

So How's about a hat?    Grin

Well, thanks so much for the photocopying advice.  AS for tearing them, I don't...er...won't tear those magazines, but I've been looking for some sweet children's books online for cheap.  (I am such a chicken about tearing books though)

On the subject of "Calling All Girls!"  I'm honestly amazed that someone else knows what they are!  But I don't think I'd be willing to part with them.  Primarily because they're cool yet mainly because they're from my grama and she's gone now.   Undecided Sorry  Undecided

I'm wowed.  I really like your style.  That one with simmetry looks like wallpaper and I ador it.  Keep it up, and I'm sure you'll be awarded a fine scholarship!  (wahoo fashon school at a discount!)
