That's stunning! Love the color, too.  Smiley
612  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Best Garage Sale Finds!!! on: July 19, 2005 12:21:34 AM
I adore garage sales!  Grin

Some of my favorite finds:

**an entire library of Japanese books (boxes & boxes!) for $20
**an SLR camera with tons of lenses for cheap
**a knitting machine for $100 (the type that's $3000 new!)
**yarn, yarn, and more yarn! (Usually someone who paid a fortune for the yarn & then never knit anything.)
613  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My first dress completed... vintage-y on: July 18, 2005 02:35:08 AM
Simply stunning! I can't wait to see the jacket.

Is there going to be a tutorial? (Hint, hint!)
614  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: baby yarns for baby blanket, HELP on: July 18, 2005 02:34:00 AM
What weight yarn are you looking at?

My all-time favorite for baby knits is Dale Baby Ull. Beautiful colors, soft as can be, and machine washable to boot! It's a sport weight yarn.
615  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: tattoo translation?? on: July 16, 2005 02:16:42 PM
IMHO, I wouldn't trust Babelfish for any translation, much less one that's going to end up on my skin. It's notoriously bad at translating accurately (like every other machine translation so far). Can't handle synonyms and similes, stuff like that. Seems minor, but results in hilariously bad translations.  Cheesy

Best bet is to get people who speak Hebrew to write it out for you - and do check it with more than one person.  I speak Japanese, and I'm always seeing pseudo-Japanese tattoos on people, wondering what they *think* it says.  Undecided

616  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: When did you learn to crochet? on: July 16, 2005 12:07:59 AM
When I was 6, my great-grandma taught me, so 22 years ago.  She taught me a lot of patterns by heart, too. In fact, didn't learn to read a pattern until a decade or so later.

I thought it was the coolest thing ever!  Cool (I still like it, of course, but I like a lot of other things, too.)
617  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: My boyfriend is studying abroad. on: July 14, 2005 01:35:35 PM
Well, when I was studying abroad, we weren't allowed to bring much with us. Packing was a nightmare! So I'd suggest something he's going to need anyway, just customized by you. Or at least something very small & easy to pack.

A laundry bag custom decorated?
Phone cards? (Yeah, I know, not crafty, but useful. Perhaps with a cool carrying case designed by you?)
618  UNITED STATES / Alaska / Re: Any Craftsters in Alaska? on: July 14, 2005 01:38:53 AM
so sad, so homesick... i was born and raised in Alaska and married into the air force and it brought me to Kansas... kansas is no place for an Alaska gal...

Kansas? The lack of mountains would kill me!  Embarrassed
619  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Crafting for teens with cancer on: July 13, 2005 09:55:29 PM
Just to jump in here- and i dont mean to offend anyone at ALL- but i have very long hair, and people have told me time and time again i should hack it off and send it to locks of love. Aside from the fact that i would be in absolutle HORROR to cut my hair.... I have heard quite a few suspicious things about the Locks of Love organization. They get LOTS of hair donated to them.... and dont really turn out many wigs, considering what they take in. I realize it takes money and time to create these wigs, but there is definitly stockpiles of leftover hair that people have parted with out of the goodness of their heart.... and where does it go?

It doesnt seem like they reveal very much information about their organization, or rather, dont reveal enough to convince me. If i thought it was a good cause, they could probably use the money more than anything. Also ive heard people say that the organization tends to be.... picky? shall we say? About who they give out their wigs to...

Ive unfortunatly had allot of friends and co-workers and family friends that have had cancer- and really if you want to give a gift of hair, the best thing to do is to take things into your own hands.

I think these hats are a great idea, and very cute.  I cant wait to see what saussy ideas people come up with Smiley

Once again, i didnt want that to come off wrong- i just feel nervous about people doing something out of the goodness of their hearts, and possibly being taken advantage of. So just a word of warning is all!

Yes, I've heard bad reviews of them, too. They apparently have a bad reputation with the Better Business Bureau for not being forthcoming about their operations.

Even if it's perfectly legit, I'd prefer to donate money to cancer research. *my two cents* And now that I'm embracing my crafty nature  Grin I hope I can make cool things to donate to cancer charities.
