Wow! I am blown away by how gorgeous this is. And how different it is from what I normally see in "granny square" blankets. Definitely bookmarking this one and fantastic job!

These are several gift tags I made using spray paint. I used these for Christmas and will be making more for Valentine's day.

Here's the How-to:


spray paint in several different colors
tray filled with shallow water (the disposable pans at the grocery store work well)
pencil or other pointy thing


Fill a shallow tray with water. Take your different colors of spray paint and spray them on the surface of the water. (not too close, and it doesn't take much). Use a pencil to manipulate the surface of the water to create a pattern. Place paper on the surface of the water and make sure the entire surface is in contact with the paint/water. Then lift up by the corners and set aside to dry. You will need to reapply paint each time. You can remove residual paint in the water by wiping it away with newspaper in between applications. Use a paper punch to cut out tags from one big sheet. Also try it on different flat objects, ex. boxes, picture frames, make envelopes, book covers... possibilities are endless.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help needed on how to finish edging on cabled scarf on: February 08, 2006 10:25:23 AM
I'm rather new at knitting and I decided to take on something a little more challenging: like cables, and ribbing, and frilled edging all at the same time... Well, everything was going great until I got to the end and needed to do the frilling. The directions tell how to start out with the edging and decrease down to the number of stitches you need, but I have no idea how to do the reverse!  Huh

I would be truly grateful if anyone could offer suggetions.

This is the last line of pattern that I worked up to where the fringe would start:
p3, k3, p4, k3, p3

This is the edging pattern:
(64 stitches to start with and then down to 16 for the cable pattern)

Row 1: *k2, lift first of these 2 sts over second adn off the needle; rep from * to end. (half the number of stitches remain)
Row 2
: *p2tog; rep from * to end. (finished number of stitches remain)
Cont. in main fabric of garment or cast off.


Would it be best to do the edging and sew it on, if so, how what is the best way to do that?
