1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Play kitchen redo on: May 16, 2011 11:54:10 AM

Ok creative people. I'd like to revamp this play kitchen, any suggestions?  The playroom is a dull medium shade of green with creamy beige baseboards.   

What color would you suggest?  Any ideas beyond new nobs, silver hood, eyes painted on stove, maybe some curtains?

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / want to personalize a gift, but how? on: September 05, 2007 08:28:07 PM
I bought 30 artist smocks for our local library to use in tehir Storytime.  They paint after each session and have been using old t-shirts as smocks.

Anyway, the smocks I bought are made from Tyvek, so an iron on is out because Tyvek can't be heated.

Any ideas on how I can prsonalize them easily and quickly?  I was thinking maybe silk screen, but you have to set the ink with an iron, so I assume that's out too.

I was thinking of just somehow putting "storytime"  in some fun font or a picture of a book and bookworm on them, but can't figure out how to get an image on them.

ANY ideas on how I can personalize these things would be great.  Even better ideas that "story time" or a bookworm pic would be appreciated, (that is if there is a way to get an image on them...)

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / can I silk screen this material??? on: September 05, 2007 08:01:19 PM
I bought some art smocks for my son's storytime group.  They paint after storytime every week and  are using oversized t-shirts as smocks right now.

The smocks I bought are made out of Tyvek fabric, which melts at 275 F. 

I'd liek to personalize the smocks before giving them, like silk screening "Storytime" in a fun font or something.   

Would it be possible to silk screen on a fabric that can't be ironed?   I want the print to be durable as it will see lots of use.

Any ideas?    I'm open to other ways of personalizing too...

Ya know, my 2yo only sleeps well under a weighted blanket that I had to special order for him, so that heavy blanket may  come in handier than you expect!

Thanks Smiley   I knew going into this that I'd probably have to rip it several times, just wanted to make sure that was the only option before doing it Smiley

Well I've looked at it and tried to use a crochet hook to fix it and I just can't get it.  Looks like I'll start all over and use lifelines!!

So I dropped the stitch above to see if I could fix it and it's a disaster now.  I couldn't get the stitches above it dropped, only one or two and I don't know how to rework them now.

PLEASE tell me there is something I can do short of starting all over!!!

I'd go with adding a life line also.  You might be missing a yarn over, which I wouldn't recommend fixing from those few stitches.

Knittinghelp has a video for adding a lifeline under Basic Techniques-->
miscellaneous-->under Fixing Mistakes (last video).  (the site currently not cooperating with me enough to get to that page myself)

Can I ask why I shouldn't try to fix it?  Because there wouldn't be enough yarn?   

So I guess frogging is the only solution?  Sad

I didn't know about lifelines, sounds great!  I'll be sure to use them in the future!!

So dropping the stitch above and trying to rework the ones below sounds like it should work, but I have NO idea how to rework them.  I mean, I know you use a crochet hook and all that, but I don't know where to pull what, you know what I mean?

I am making my first knitted project ever! So new that the first time I even held needles was when swatching for this tee!

So, I've done about 8 rounds and found a mistake several rounds back. It's right where the lace meets the sleeve. If it where just in the St. st area I could fix it, but I'm stumped here.

The hole right under the stitch marker next to my middle finger is not supposed to be there. The others to the right are, that's the lace area.

What can I do?? I REALLY don't want to frog back]
