1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bleach toturial, please! on: November 06, 2005 07:32:47 AM
I saw a lot of people using bleach on clothes and I wanted to try on a black shirt I have.

First, I taught "I'm no idiot, I'll just poor the bleach on it and wait." That didn't do anything.

So, then I tried to look here, and on google, for a tutorial and found nothing.

So, either the universe doesn't want me to learn how to bleach things, or I'm a moron.

Anyone can help me?

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pants bottom seem on: October 29, 2005 04:38:31 PM
Hi! boyfriend asked me to sew the bottom of his pants (I'm sorry, I can't remember the proper term for this). This thing is, I have no idea what this stich is. I took a couple pictures of the stich on the other leg (where it's not undone).


Thx in advance for any info you might have!

3  COOKING / Dessert / Banana- berry muffins on: October 16, 2005 02:27:18 PM
I'm not one to eat muffins, I'll admit it. Specially if I made made them. The taste of flour is too intense, in my opinion and it always feels like I'm eating something a 2 years old made.

But I tried this recipe http://www.joyofbaking.com/muffins/StrawberryBananaMuffins.html and I'm in love. The banana are subtle and the berry (I used blue berry and rasberry) give a nice texture and taste.

You can see some pics of the muffins I made yesterday, around midnight, on my blog. It's in french, yes, but that is why I also gave you the direct link to www.joyofbaking.com. Tongue

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How should I choose an adjustable mannequin? on: September 28, 2005 10:43:26 AM
I tried googling it, but found no info other than places where I could purchased one.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Shosenshi on: September 23, 2005 03:38:40 PM

A while ago, I've purchased a 750 yards skeins of shosenshi yarn. Kinda like the one in the link, but a nice cranberry color ( http://store.purlsoho.com/purl/products/yarndetail/442 ). It feel very much like paper.

I was wondering if anyone had ever bought it and what you've used it for? Or what you would use it for.

Thank you!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / yarn to trade on: September 20, 2005 06:30:52 AM
I've looked trough the forum and found no section for  people with too much yarn wishing to trade or sel some of it.

Is it allowed on the board?

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitpicks Andean silk and dye batch on: September 19, 2005 12:12:50 PM
I've ordered a couple skeins of andean silk (color letucce) but realised to late that the pattern would probbly require two more skeins. Now, I'm not going to order it right away, because I MIGHT now need it, but f I do, and I end up ordering it when the garnment is almost done, I doubt they will still have the yarn is the same dye number as mine. So, will the different dye batch really show on the garnment? Should I take a chance?

8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Leaves in reliefs from Fall Knitty 2005 on: September 17, 2005 06:21:30 AM
Who's in the mood for some Leaves in relief, from Fall Knitty 2005?

Here's the link: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTleavesinrelief.html

I, myself,  have ordered some andean silk from Knitpics in the letucce color ( http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_display.aspx?itemid=5420126 ). I know this yarn is a heavier gauge (18 sts to 4") than what is recommened (21 sts to 4"), but this will allow me to knit it in a smaller size and therefor it'll be knitted a little faster. I will also make a concient effort to have a 18 sts gauge, so that the garnment feels loose (I hate stiffy yarn), but can still have a good stitch definition.

So, who's in?!

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hairpin lace cardigan on: September 07, 2005 08:56:38 AM
Has anyone made it?

I'm currently making it, in the recommended yarn, the same color has the picture (black). Yes! I'm THAT original!

Anywho, I'd love to see how it came out for others.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting machine on: September 05, 2005 05:46:28 PM
So I've bought an ultimate sweater machine (on ebay), but when it got here I realised that there is no video and noinstruction manual.

I've googled it and found no online instructions. Does anyone know of a website with tutorials for knitting machine?
