621  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: hitchhiker's guide marvin the cuddly android - pattern included on: August 24, 2005 10:56:10 AM
Here's my attempt:

Didn't quite come out like yours, but I like him anyway.  ^_^  Thanks for the pattern

EDIT:  Heh, I redid the middle section.  Now he's even cuter!
622  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingernail Protectors (with pattern) on: August 22, 2005 04:07:13 AM
One of my friends is starting at the Yehudi Menuhin (or however the hell you spell it) School this September.  (It's a really exclusive music school).  She plays classical guitar, and has to keep the fingernails on her left hand long.  As a leaving present, I made her these:

fingernail protectors!  Along with some personalised manuscript paper (as she has all her best composition ideas in the middle of the night, it says "Laura's 3AM Music" along the top) and a CD of flute and guitar music (because I play the flute and we used to duet a lot).


Small ball DK weight yarn
3 double pointed needles ... not sure about size, but tension needs to be tightish

Little finger:
CO 8 sts to one of the needles
*K1, Sl1 p-wise * rep from * until end of row onto another needle
Carry on knitting in this way on two needles until work is long enough to cover fingernail
Sl first stitch onto other needle, then Sl the second onto different needle.  Sl alternate stitches until there are four on each needle.  The work should resemble a little open bag.
Cast off.  Turn inside out.  Tidy ends.

For thumb:  CO 12 sts and do same as for little finger

For other fingers: CO 10 sts and do same as for little finger.

I'm not sure if these have any kind of practical application, as they fall off as soon as you move your fingers quickly.  However, I think they'll be appreciated as a joke present ^_^
623  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Pictures in signatures? on: August 18, 2005 08:09:50 AM
Heh, thanks.  I couldn't think of an avatar that was small enough so I turned to Neopets for help in my hour of need.
624  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Can we put pictures in our signatures? on: August 18, 2005 08:05:16 AM
I've searched for this, but it hasn't come up with anything (and sorry if this isn't the right board)

Why can't I have a picture in my little "signature"?  Am I doing it wrong or is it impossible?
625  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Jewelry Box on: August 18, 2005 07:58:44 AM
That's so lovely!  The pictures are a bit teeny though :/

You've given me a great idea for a project now ^_^
626  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / An imaginative use for candy on: August 18, 2005 07:54:22 AM
So I bought a load of strawberry laces this morning...

Well, it would be against all my crafty sensibilities not to, wouldn't it?

(I'm eating it as I type.  Hurrah for scoubidou!)
627  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Beauty Sercrets Here on: August 15, 2005 01:38:35 AM
Stand up straight, look in the mirror every morning and tell yourself that you're beautiful.  Works for me Wink
628  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: several cards i've made image heavy on: August 14, 2005 11:01:12 AM
Your girlfriend is v. v. lucky ^_^  I think I recognise the paper on her "rock on" card... was it from a Sizzle paper selection?  (I used it on a valentine for my (now ex-)girlfriend this year, too!)

Is that a scoubidou hose I see?

 Cheesy you rock
629  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: diy blotting sheets? on: August 14, 2005 10:51:02 AM
you could pull rice paper off macaroons...

okay, sorry, that was a really stupid suggestion.   Grin
630  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Gay 16th birthday - HELP! on: August 14, 2005 04:28:06 AM
Well, the only conversation that I've ever had with him that's lasted more than five minutes was along the lines of:

"Being gay sucks."

"Try being a lesbian sometime, it's no fun either."

(we're both still in school, and people are not particularly receptive to our sexualities)

And for the record, I'm not making a big deal out of it for no reason - he likes to do the whole "yay!  I am so gayer than you!" thing and all of our mutual friends tend to completely ignore it and skate around his sexuality, shutting up if they start talking about boys near him or whatever, so I really want to show him that at least I know where he's coming from.

I have now decided on jellybeans and a card involving much nudity.  Thanks for the advice.
