11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Baby Blanket on: September 25, 2005 05:47:38 PM
I finally finished the baby/doll blanket that I've been working on for what seems like forever (it's been very on and off). My mom says it's big enough for a newborn, but I'm a little skeptical so it might be good for a doll blanket... I ended up doing the blanket in two shades of pink because I didn't have another skein of the lighter pink. I think it turned out pretty good for my second knitting project ever. Cheesy

The pattern I used for it is this:

Cast on 62 stitches.
Row 1 - 12: all K
Row 13: K8, P3, (K5, P3) until last 11 then K11.
Row 14: K8, P4,Then knit 11 rows and cast off on row 12.  (K3, P5) until last 10 then K10.
Row 15: K8, P1, (K5, P3) until last 13 then K13.
Row 16: K9, P5, (K4, P5) until last 8 then K8.
Row 17: K12, (P3, K5) until last 10 then P2, K8.
Row 18: K11, (P5, K3) until last 11 then P3, K8.
Row 19: K10, P3, (K5, P3) until last 9 then K9.
Row 20: K8, P2, K3, (P5, K3) until last 9 then P1, K8.
Repeat 13 - 20 until desired length.
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Where to Find Small Battery Powered Fountain Pumps on: September 24, 2005 08:43:34 AM
My fiance wants to attempt to make a table top fountain (he somehow has gotten the idea that this would be a great idea for wedding centerpieces, I'm not utterly convinced, but I said if he could make one and it looked good and wasn't too hard nor too expensive to make...). But we have NO idea where to buy fountain pumps. Ideally, we'd like a battery powered one, but I dunno if they sell them or not, and how long batteries last in them... If anyone had any links as to where we could order them or any suggestions stores that might sell them (We live in New Hampshire) that would be very much apperciated. Thanks!
13  UNITED STATES / New Hampshire / Any NH Scrapbookers? on: September 23, 2005 02:59:02 PM
I've been really interested in trying scrapbooking, but I'm kinda nervous on where to get started.... so I was wondering if there were any other NH scrapbookers around that might be able to help me get started and keep me on task.
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Bouquets on: September 23, 2005 01:32:27 PM
I'm getting married next August and I'd been on the search for projects to do for my wedding day... and via a wedding board I belong to, I found a girl who had made beaded bouquets for her wedding and she posted a link to some instructions on how to do it. I'd seen beaded bouquets before on several different wedding sites and they were always in the $300 to $500 range... I loved them, but they were just waaaaaay too expensive for me. So, when I saw that you could make them yourself and the instructions looked pretty easy, I just HAD to try making them. It's recommended that you use Swarovski crystal beads, but since I just about choked when I found out how much those beads cost, I decided to try making bouquets out of a bunch of assorted glass beads.

The bouquets are still in progress, but I figured I'd share what mine looks like so far:
