1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: You all seem interested in a scarf drive-ish thing so here goes nothing... on: December 04, 2005 12:22:33 PM
Great idea!!

However, in my home town, kids scarves are banned from schools...  About a year ago, a girl died on a school bus because her scarf was too tight... They didn't notice until it was too late.  So now in our entire city, scarves and hats with strings are banned from schools and I would feel reluctant to give it to the charity if I know there's that "slim" chance of it happening.  (I know, I know - there's always that one case that ruins great ideas for people, eh? hehe!)

I love the idea of giving scarves to homeless people / people in need though - great idea!  Our Canadian winters get pretty cold, so i'm going to check some shelters around here.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Blogs on: December 03, 2005 05:01:33 PM
Hey!  When bored, i'll usually peek at the links that craftsters post in their signatures... and i've come across many wedding blogs.  Since i've always wanted a wedding in another country (but would never be able to afford to bring everybody with me), I think that having a wedding blog is a fantastic idea!!   Some of the ones that i've come across have pictures of the wedding and honeymoon, accomodations/directions to the wedding, and even registry links!!

So I wanted to have a topic where everybody can share their wedding blogs (for past, present, or future weddings) if they have one!!  I'd love to see what other people have come up with - since this is something that I may consider in the future (if my boyfriend ever proposes! hehe!)

I'm not sure what it's called exactly... I'm in the process of moving, so all of my knitting stuff is packed away!!  But it was just a cheapo brand from Zellers - the Zellers in my hometown has a pretty big selection, actually - so that's why I picked the soft acrylic (I think it might have been one of those kinds advertised for babies... does that make sense?  Like "baby soft" or "so soft" or something).  Try doing a bit of the back in a yarn that you have at home to see how it turns out... This pattern is pretty generous in that anything ends up looking nice.

Well, briteros, I didn't use the yarn in the pattern... I ended up using some acrylic (super soft) yarn - but even this cheapo brand hangs very nicely.  The larger needles helped keep the price down - I think I only used 3 small balls of yarn.  Good luck!  It's a great project to do!

Well... I finished mine!  It was a gift for my mom's birthday.  I didn't follow the pattern exactly (the collar is shorter and I used super soft yarn instead) - but I had fun making it!

8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: "The Little Visitor Swap" Sign-ups Aug 27-September 15, Send by November 20... on: November 06, 2005 08:04:57 AM
Americandemockracy, I absolutely LOVE your "check in" idea... So great to see how everybody else is doing (when they have sent/received, etc.)  Great organization!

I finally got a job interview (yay!) close to Ottawa, Ontario (about an 18 hour drive southeast from me) and haven't decided if I'm going to keep the stuffy to take a few last minute pictures of the cities in that area, or send before I go (the interview is on the 16th, so I'd be leaving here on the 13th or 14th).  In any case, I will send before the 20th.

Thanks again for organizing this swap!

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: the Little Visitor, I'd like you to meet... on: November 04, 2005 07:33:48 AM
Well... the moment I've been waiting for has finally arrived.... SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!  Keep in mind that having our first snowfall this late in the year is very unusual.   I remember one year it didn't come until Halloween - and we thought that was bad!  (It's sort of a tradition to be freezing outside on Halloween... that's why many of the costumes are stuffed to the max with warm clothes!)  So it was really depressing not to have snow this year for the fun night.   Anyways, here's Dr. Ivan outside on our back deck (not much snow... but it's the first snowfall, and we know we can expect tons more to come!)
