1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Kool-Aid Pink Charm Bag on: January 02, 2008 12:41:22 PM
The best way to achieve the variegated effect (I've found) is to mix the kool aid with only a little bit of water (so it's pretty concentrated), and also don't use too much water in the pot on the stove.  That way you can pour the kool aid on specific patches of yarn better, and it doesn't turn as uniform a color.

Yes actually, my hair is quite thick... so the whole short angle-y thing is probably the best thing that ever happened to my hair.  It's also sort of inspired by one of my favorite Japanese actors, Oguri Shun ^_^ 

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

I made something pretty similar to the Chinese Charm Bag for my friend's birthday, but in the round and no charm.  However, the kool-aid dyed pink yarn speaks for itself, I think.  The worst part of this project was the sewing of the lining (I used a gigantic tshirt).  Finishing nearly kills me on every project.

Here it is, modeled various places around my room:

I made one too ^_^

I sort of wish the stitch pattern was bumpier -- maybe next time I'll try doubling up the yarn.  This time I used size 8 needles and cast on ~100 stitches.

stitch close-up!

I finished this yesterday and it's my first actual holiday knit completed.  Woohoo (Holiday knitting is stupid)

I hope the hat fits the girl I'm giving it to!

Here's mine -- I had it on the needles last semester and finally got it finished once school got out.  It ended up taking a lot of yarn, but it turned out way bigger than I expected (maybe my gauge was off?)  However, I like that it's not too tight.

Now I just need to find a place to wear it.

I think I'll jump on this KAL too, assuming I can figure the stitch out.  Progress/questions to come!

8  ASIA / Japan / Re: Just moved to Osaka, any crafters out here (or the rest of Japan) too? on: October 13, 2006 03:55:59 AM
Hey, I am living somewhere between Kobe and Osaka, and have been slowly discovering some crafty stores.  In Osaka, there is a small shop on the 2nd floor of the Shinsaibashi Daimaru, south building.  The website is here http://homepage1.nifty.com/avril/
It's small (mostly sewing/yarn things), but it's the only craft store I've been to in Osaka.

I don't know about social events -- I would be interested in finding out what is around, but I have no idea at the moment.

Where does the circular needle come in?  I am not really understanding the pattern.

Hott, Pape.  Doubly appropriate for gigs now.  Also, good choice to use yarn to embroider instead of that other stuff.  Pynk Power, dude!
