1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Re: New TV prog - Homemade Home on C4 on: May 20, 2009 01:42:31 PM
It was a really nice programme, I'm kind of sad it's over.

I re-watched all episodes (only 5!) at the 4oD catch-up. The website has some interesting links and how-to's as well.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How easy is it, for a crochet virgin..?! on: May 20, 2009 01:08:51 PM
Like everyone said youtube is a great resource. And check your local library, they might have some books or videos on crochet.

You'll notice really soon that crochet is basically one hand movement, that gets repeated over and over again.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I have a technique question on: May 20, 2009 01:05:08 PM
I don't know if you are familiar with short rows in knitting. It's basically when your knitting in the round, on one row you change to knitting back and forth (normal style), but stop knitting one or more stitches before the end of the row.

I've used the same technique in crochet for something angular (I think it was a flower or something like that), and worked to perfection. You might want to give it a try.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cutting a knit sweater.... on: May 20, 2009 12:50:58 PM

Your best option is probably to sew a line of stitches beside your cutting line: let's say you had a square of knitting and you wanted it to be circular. You could sew a circle of stitches in the fabric (outline of a circle) and cut around it (on the outside). The fabric outside the circle would fall apart. The circle would be intact. The stitches must be capable of holding the yarn stitches together though so fairly small and tight.


ditto to that. I usually use a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine, though, not a straight one. Just for a little more prevention.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Garnstudio wool based yarns: are they skin-irritating? on: April 27, 2007 09:41:54 AM
I've used tons of Garnstudio's yarns (I lived for a while in Norway).

I have a sensity skin, and I've used they stuff mainly for hats, and I've had no problems (I've been known to get a rash on my forehead when wearing hats).

I actually made the book, I bought the covers but changed them a little bit (added some gloss, changed the string, added paper, and stuff).  I saw them and they were screaming tea swap at me with all those leaves, so I knew I had to get some for itscute.

looks great.  I must ask for the pattern.  WOW.

albarino!!!!  i *love* the blue earflap hat you crocheted!  I want to know about the pattern, too!  I wisted the hat, but I best chance of getting one is to make it myself.... guidance?

I'll be posting the pattern for both things (hat and mittens) in a couple of days, I've just been kind of busy with uni and stuff.

Albarinos, I'm still drooling over this set... did you ever get around to posting a pattern somewhere?

I totally spaced out and forgot to post it.  I'll try to find my pattern notebook and copy the pattern.

I just got my package from itscute all the way from China to Spain, and it took less than a week!

These are all the non-tea goodies:

Which inlcude cute and adorable pouches and coasters in pinks, baby blues and lavenders, an amazing lace knitted scarf, sugar, tiny chocolates and a whole bunch of small envelopes

And these are the teas:

The big bag is jazmine (which is my absolute favorite tea ever!!!), and then bags of misterious tea (that's only because the only chinese I know is "kill them" and that's from watching too many martial arts movies), but they smell awsome!!!
And each of the bags came wrapped in saying and superstitions and thoughts about tea.

I just have to say she was an amazing parter for this swap!!!   Thank you!!!!
