11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / ideas needed: rose petal holder to throw petals at bride and groom on: September 20, 2005 02:12:29 PM
My cousin is getting married this spring and I'm trying to help her with crafty ideas.  She wants everyone to throw rose petals at them as they go down the aisle, and is looking for an idea for a container for them.  A friend of hers did paper cones already, so that is out.... Any ideas? The wedding will be at the beach.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's fuzzy Feet; using a bigger yarn? What would happen? on: December 16, 2004 12:32:26 PM
I have a skien of Lamb's pride BULKY, not worsted... and think that the fuzzyfeet would be a great thing to make over Christmas break.. I am not experienced with felting or sockmaking so I don't know what using a bulky yarn would do.... any opinions?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Paton's "Pebbles" yarn - anyone? on: November 29, 2004 01:04:23 PM
I just got some of this yarn the other day to make a scarf for my aunt.  I want to do the "double sided stockinette" with it... Was wondering if anyone had any experience iwht this yarn... Patons website doesn't even have it listed..
14  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Buyers remorse.. Yarn for Fireworks Scarf substitution = $$$$ on: July 28, 2004 06:29:06 AM
 Tongue Tongue
i went with a friend of mine (Starsview on this here board!) to the semi-local yarn store for the first time yesterday and was sucked in by all the color and texture everywhere... We went with one mission in mind. We needed the yarn for the Fireworks Scarf, and she needed a good yarn for the ribbed scarf as well.  They had the Trendsetter (among 1000 other kinds of eyelash!) that I decided on but they did not have the black cotton fleece recommended in the book, so we ended up with Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino... which was like 18.00 for the two little skeins/balls/whatever... and $10 needles, because I only have 10s and 8s and the pattern calls for 15s.. Am I just cheap or is my buyers remorse justified? Spending $43 on one project is absolutely abnormal for me. 
They only take things back for store credit and they are a good 1/2 hour drive for me or I might consider taking the cashmerino back and getting some cheaper wool blend at Joann's... Is this unreasonable, am I being cheap?  I am a fairly new knitter - I generally sew and machine embroider for my #1 craft, so maybe I just don't know. I mean, right now, I live in florida, so I might use this scarf maybe 4x this year.. and by the time I would move north, it probably would be out of fashion. Please help me feel better about this. Cheesy

ETA: I just found the cotton fleece on ebay for $6.50. GAH!
15  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Help with increases on Kerchief... on: July 21, 2004 11:29:15 AM
I am officially frustrated.
I am trying to make the kerchief to learn increasing stitches but it keeps getting screwed up.  The edge stitches for about two stitches in are all weird looking; almost lacy, gappy looking.  I can post a pic later if it would help.  One side looks almost normal, the other looks really screwy- but consistent.  I am following the directions verbatim.  I am using 100% cotton, cheap-o Sugar n Cream yarn (figured that would be more comfy to wear in hot hot Florida than any sort of wooly stuff!) .  help?
16  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Tell me what you think-my new site: theplaidroom.com on: July 20, 2004 06:03:55 AM
Hi guys!
I think I finally have all the major issues worked out on my site, so I think Im ready to hear what you guys have to say... I am still working on adding products, so there isn't anything to speak of in the Home Accents and very very little in the Accessories.  (I am waiting on the other folks who are going to feature on the page to get me photos.)
Be gentle, I'm not the most experienced web developer.  Let me know your opinions on the layout, ease of use, photos, pricing,etc...

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage scarf --> cute skirt! on: June 10, 2004 07:25:32 PM
I just finished this skirt and am quite pleased with myself. Cheesy  My mother in law gave me this old scarf (among other cool reconstructable finds) to do whatever with... It had this awful yarn fringe all around the edge and looked pretty "rough" when I got it.  Not sure exactly how old the scarf was, but my husband didnt remember seeing it before and he's 23. Cheesy   I used Simplicity pattern 0609 as a launch pad. Instead of elastic as the pattern calls for, I used a piece of ribbon for a drawstring.
Dont mind the old monitor on the floor int he background -hehe
I think it is dressy-day-at-work-worthy!
19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / oscommerce software anyone? on: June 10, 2004 09:49:03 AM
Is anyone on here using the oscommerce software package?
Its the open source e commerce solution you get at sourcefoge.net.  I think it would help me make my site "scaleable"  - in that in the future I want to have multiple vendors on my page and that package should help make it easier...
Anyone using it?


Anyone who does multiple vendors using something ELSE  I should know about?
20  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Knitting faster? HOW? on: June 07, 2004 04:25:09 PM
Im posting this here because my first project is the ribbed for her pleasure scarf. Smiley 
I have been working on it off and on, on longer car trips and occasionally I will take an hour and just knit away... But I feel like it is going sooo slow and the directiosn say it can be done in like a week??? Week in whos terms, someone who knits ALL DAY straight? 
How do you get faster?  I realize the knit knit purl purl knit knit action slows you down but geeez.  I average about 7 to 10 minutes per row.

Any ideas for a short-bus knitter?
