882  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Kitty Hat! on: July 18, 2005 08:37:03 PM

Do you think I could do this on straight needles then seam it? I can't be bothered to go and buy a load of DPNs/circ. needles. (My big bag o' knitting equipment came from my grandma.)

I think I might try that too, because while I love knitting in the round, decreasing on the dpns is no fun at all!!! Smiley
883  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Soldering Iron or Cautery Pen? on: July 17, 2005 11:30:47 PM
Hey. I've actually just finished doing something along those lines. I used a "woodburning pen" - kinda like a soldering iron, but you can get them with several interchangeable tips. They're made for "drawing" on wood, so the tips are usually much finer (pointier?) than a on soldering iron. (You can get them in any craft store or department. Mine cost $15 for the pen, about a half dozen tips, a holder (to prop the pen on so you can lay it down without the hot part touching anything), and some crappy paints.)  The holes were not as small as you'd get with a pin, but.... well, they're smaller than the stick on a Q-tip (lol..the closest thing I had to compare them to, sorry!). It was surprisingly tidy, too. There were some "stringy" melted plastic bits around the holes, but I scraped them off with my fingernail after they'd cooled completely. I kept a scrap of wood handy to clean the big pieces of plastic off the hot tip - it'll get singed a bit, but won't burn quickly. 

I hope this helps, and good luck with your project! Cheesy

Yay for kitty hats! I'm making the devil version for my friend's birthday. My favorite part is the points that go on the ends of the i-cords. Genius!

A friend of mine has a tattoo around her toe (a black tribal thing) that's a bit faded, but I think it's only because she didn't take care of it really well while it was healing. She worked at a fast food joint, so she always had heavy shoes on. The scab got really thick, which (as I've observed) draws out more colour from your tattoo. I'm a part-time cashier/full-time student, so I'm planning to get my feet tattooed when I can stay off them/keep them out of shoes. Seems like a good idea. Also, I find Webber's Vitamin E ointment helps to keep the scab nice and thin.
Yay for tattooed feet!

I think using cold water to rinse will help keep your colours from bleeding together, but the (wrong) colours won't be on your hair long enough to process anyway. Smiley
887  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: this is kinda embarassing, but oh well on: July 14, 2005 08:29:01 PM
Have you ever tried bleaching? I guess it really depend on your skin colour, and how thick/coarse the hair is....
It is painless, though, and it kind of makes the hair less coarse, too.
888  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: ARGH!! Anyone use L'oreal Colour Rays!? on: July 14, 2005 07:59:34 PM
I love Colour Rays. The fuscia is fabulous. Here is a short version of the instructions (this is actually my first post, so I hope it helps!)

Step 1 says "Choose a look", but I'm sure you can do that without their instructions!

2.Mixing: put gloves on. pour all creme developer (#1) in the mixing tray. Open colour streaking creme tube (#2) by removing cap, inverting it, and piercing the opening with the point on the other end of the cap. Add entire contents of #2 tube to the tray, and mix thoroughly with the spatula.

3.Application: apply to dry, untangled hair. Use pointed end of streaking brush to lift up and separate the strand of hair to be coloured. Keep strand up. Dip the brush end of the streaking brush into mixture and pick up a generous amount of product. To apply, roll streaking brush through strand all along its length without leaving excess product at the root. Thoroughly saturate from root to tip. (Use enough product that it's visible on the strand of hair) Lay the coloured strand back on your hair, it won't "spread".

4. Timing: Leave on hair for 30 minutes from the time you finished applying.

5. Rinse & Condition: Keep gloves on, rinse off the mixture until the water runs clear. Apply Conditioning Shampoo. Lather & rinse. Then do the same with the After-Colour Rinse.

Tip: You can't store the product after it's been mixed, but I often mix up a little at a time, using the proportions given in the allergy test instructions. In this case, it says to mix one part of the Colour Streaking Creme with 1.5 parts of the Creme Developer. Make sure to use a plastic measuring spoon and bowl (or glass), not metal.

Sorry if this is kinda wordy, but again, I really hope it helps!
