1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / skinny heathered gray and pink drop stitch scarf on: April 12, 2006 06:24:19 AM

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / hooded scarf on: January 27, 2006 10:32:52 AM
i finished this a while back. i was knitting it for my mom. but it's a pretty small hood. i knitted it exactly following the pattern and using the correct yarn and needles.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / peppermint candy cane fuzzy pink hat--child size on: December 11, 2005 01:45:11 PM
i can't believe i forgot to post this hat. i finished it around thanksgiving. it was supposed to be sized for like an 8-12 year old, but apparently they have much bigger heads than i thought. after asking around on craftster, apparently an ~18" hat is for a toddler. when did kids get such big heads?




i'm actually very proud of the hat, and rather disappointed that it's for tiny babies, and not elementary age girls. sigh.

This is made with yarn i got in the mail yesterday. i have to say, this is the nicest, softest, prettiest thing i think i've made yet. and i LOVE the yarn. it's just so soft.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / hat help needed: 18" circumference hat--who's it for? on: November 26, 2005 05:15:07 PM
so i just finished knitting a hat that i knew would be a kid's size hat. the finished circumference is ~18" and stretches to ~22".

i'm going to list it on etsy and i want to be correct in my advert.

my knitting books tell me that a 17" circ hat is for 4-6 months and that a 20" circ hat is for 18 months to 4 years. can that be right? maybe kidlets just have bigger heads than i thought....

i don't have any kids to try this out on so i could really use some help. i thought this would be good for like an 8-12 year old and i'll be disappointed if it really is for a 1 year old...

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / kitty hat on: November 16, 2005 09:12:48 AM
this is the second one i've knit, and it's perfect. i use the paton's merino classic wool in chestnut brown (http://www.patonsyarns.com/product.php?LGC=classicmerinowool) and it takes less than a skein of it to make that hat.

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / printing on cardstock? on: November 16, 2005 08:52:38 AM
i make cards and i wish i could do the cool printings and sayings on my cards like the magazines show and like you guys do. but my printer always jams when i try printing on cardstock, even when i adjust the settings and tell it i'm printing on cardstock.

so, how do you guys print on cardstock? it's not exceptionally thick, just normal cardmaking cardstock.

which printers do you use? any suggestions for printing on cardstock?

thanks for your suggestions.

if anyone's interested in a how-to, let me know. it was pretty easy!
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / heat embossing problems on: September 18, 2005 07:44:10 PM
Hi. I just delved into heat embossing this weekend. It seems to work great except for one thing: after i tap off the excess powder there are still random bits of powder that aren't part of the image. I tried getting them off with a q-tip, but that just ruined the whole image. So, I tried again and ignored the specks and just went ahead and used the heat gun, hoping the specks would disappear. They didn't. So, while the image itself looks fine, the area around it and in it just looks dirty and unprofessional because of the excess powder I couldn't get off.

Any suggestions on how to make my cards look better, without all the excess that wouldn't tap off? Much appreciated. Thanks!
