1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What would you do with reel-to-reel tape? on: April 12, 2012 12:39:16 AM
My boyfriend has been doing some massive cleaning and purging recently, and today decided to discard three reels (approximately 4.5 miles) of two inch audio tape that's no longer any good for recording, but being the good little packrats that we are, neither of us can quite bear to throw out that much tape... the idea being, there must be something crafty that can be done with it...  short of wallpapering the walls with it, I'm having trouble finding ideas for it. 

As you can see, one side is shiny and the other side is matte, and it's a fair bit more durable than what you'd find in your average household cassette tape.

Any thoughts?
2  UNITED STATES / New Hampshire / ManchVegas Knitting on: August 10, 2007 06:56:19 PM
I figured I'd post this over here just in case anyone's interested, but there is a stitch 'n bitch type group in Manchester that meets regularly on Wednesdays at Barnes & Nobel called ManchVegas Knitting, though there are some crocheters and others in the mix. They've got a mailing list too: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ManchVegasKnitting/

I've only been once because Wednesday is a bad time for me, but I figured I'd mention it in case some other NH craftsters were free. They're a nice bunch.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Anastasia Socks on: November 10, 2006 11:37:20 AM
This is my first completed pair of socks using the Anastasia pattern.

Relatively simple toe up socks to make that look great!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tiny sockage on: November 10, 2006 11:32:10 AM
Upon being told by my mother that I had to make a gift for the baby of one of her coworkers, I decided that making some widdle sockies would be a quick and easy gift.... No real pattern... They're toe ups....

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Odessa hat on: November 10, 2006 11:29:07 AM
Made using MagKnit's Odessa pattern without the beads.

From the top:

From the front:

Overall, a pretty easy hat to make, unfortunately I seem to have issues counting so it got frogged back to the beginning once and the top of the hat is kinda messed up, but it's not noticable so who cares? Wink
6  UNITED STATES / New Hampshire / Any Concord area craftsters want to get together? on: August 15, 2006 11:39:38 PM
Now that my wedding is over, I am BORED! Soooo... I was wondering if there were any Concord area craftsters who would like to get together and do some crafty type stuff just to get me out of the house. We could do Borders or somewhere.... If you have a suggestion, I'm more than willing to oblige!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Neil's Scarf on: December 22, 2005 04:26:32 PM
When the boys at school found out I could knit, I got comissioned for a few projects.... Neil's scarf was one of them...

Here's a picture of it in progress:

Here's a picture of Neil wearing the finished product:

He wanted something that was going to match the spirit of his hat. I think they tied in quite nicely. They're not exactly the same, but they complement each other quite well....

The only thing I didn't really like about it was the scarf seemed a bit short to me, and the edges ended up rolling in more than I expected them to despite the fact I made a border.... but nonetheless, Neil was thrilled and he paid me enough to buy my fiance a Christmas present. LOL!
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Wavy Gravy Scarfs! on: December 22, 2005 04:21:45 PM
Who knew that some rather ugly veregated yarn would knit up into two really nice wavy gravy scarves?

9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / To Dye For Sweater on: December 22, 2005 04:19:55 PM
I decided to make the "To Dye For" sweater from the first Stitch 'n Bitch book minus the dying instructions.... This is how it came out:

It was the first sweater I've ever made so I made a few mistakes.... I didn't finish it off exactly the way it said in the book.... and I made the arms a teeny tiny bit too long... but otherwise it came out pretty good!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a Wedding Dress Pattern on: September 26, 2005 04:11:14 PM
I'm having a terrible time finding dresses I like for a wedding dress so I'm considering having my mom make me one... However, I hate all the patterns I've seen as well... (or what I like, she refused to make) so the only option I've left to try is to try to design my own dress for her to make.. but the idea seems kinda daunting because I don't sew and I know she's never made anything that's not with a pattern (though I know she's made some very difficult stuff with patterns). I don't really know where to start... Does anyone have any suggestions for us to design the perfect dress?
