11  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Dream Swatch Head Wrap by Knit & Tonic KAL on: June 16, 2006 09:15:37 AM
I started with 4 cross-overs and then reduced 6 stitches, then belled it back out at the other end.  It came out pretty good, I'll post pictures tonight.  I still have to block it but for some reason I'm lazy about it.  I actually tried to block it when I finished but I was too anxious to wear it so I put it on still damp and it curled up again.  Go figure.

If it's Winter 02, you can still get it direct from Interweave.

yes I know, but it's 5.99 plus $4.50 shipping (which seems like so much!!!)
That's why I'm trying to acquire a used copy instead.  I know it sounds cheap but that's too much to pay for one pattern...

Hi Everybody, I have been really really wanting to knit a sweater for my old roommate's new baby, similar to this: http://mindofwinter.prettyposies.com/archives/000193.html
I keep bidding on the pattern which was featured in the winter 02/03 interweave knits magazine but I can't keep checking ebay all day long at work!  Does anybody have a copy they'd be willing to sell me?  I would be happy to buy a photocopy of just this pattern as well!!  Thanks everyone,

some produce keeps longer if you dont wash it right away (strawberries for example).

This is because strawberries  come coated in fungicide so they mold if you wash it off. 

Bananas are the ultimate ripening agent!

By the way Geobabe, that's regular acrylic paint and I didn't seal it or anything.

That's fine, I think it will be used for groceries and crafts, so hopefully it will stay clean and dry.  How would I seal it if I need to ?  Scotchguard?

Hi everybody, sorry I've been so out of touch (especially you, shylittlegoddess!)  May turned out to be a really tough month at work and I have not been able to post pictures of my AWESOME SWAP BOOTY until now!  shylittlegoddess was an excellent swapper, everything she made was really suited to my favorite colors and tastes, and she made things which she knew I could use!

First there is the Uncle Shelby's Calendar!

It has a different "tip" from Uncle Shelby's Handbook for every month!  She even started it at May 06 so I can use it right away!  Here's May:

Next, there's this awesome needle case with a set of needles and two balls of cool eyelash yarn!  Blue and brown are my favorite colors and this yarn will be perfect to knit into a scarf I've been planning for my mom.

I can't decide which of the next two are my favorite.  Both of these crafts require a lot of time and natural talent, neither of which I can seem to find lately.  First is the tote.  It has hand painted pictures from Where the Sidewalk Ends - some of my very favorites. 

and the detail:

I love the adaptation of ickle me pickle me tickle me too!

finally, shylittlegoddess made me the coolest personalized journal!  it has my name on it, with two of my FAVORITE POEMS OF ALL TIME on the cover - and a few more on the inside!  Best of all, there's a foldout on the first page with beautiful drawings and original poetry! 

Thanks so much Leah, that is the perfect first page for what I hope will become a journal full of creativity.  I've already started filling in my next knitting project and it's going to be my craft journal.  Thanks a billion for your patience too.  Everything is finally finished and I'll be sending in the morning!  I hope it's worth the wait!

Nice avatar Geobabe!

Thanks Minouette!  It's not as pretty or unique as yours but I actually am moving to Cape Town so I'm excited about it.

Yo Trifarina what's an ichnofossil?  We used to call this stuff anthropogenic megadebris (when found on the beach anyway.)
19  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Recipe card exchange Sign ups Closed Send out 4/20 on: May 02, 2006 07:12:17 AM
I received yesterday from viciouskitty and jnaos!  Thanks ladies!  I can't wait to get cookin.  viciouskitty also sent me a wooden spoon, which is great because I seem to go through them, somehow... caught the boyfriend stirring paint with one a couple weeks ago...

So we're not doing a gallery for this swap... is there anything similar to replace it?

In terms of injuries... I confess I've managed to injure myself a few times on the job... but soldering electronics or re-terminating winches during high seas is a little bit crazy and I'm a bit accident prone to begin with.
Last night I burnt myself on the hotplate while epoxying thin sections.  Then I accidently poured acetone into the burn.  Then I got cranky and went home.

It is a funny short little paper on how ptarmigans are responsible for melting of the Laurentide Ice Sheet.  There is a really funny diagram of a little bird body and it's heat fluxes. 
I sincerely hope the authors considered albedo effects of seasonal plumage.
LOL! Indeed!  Not to mention the albedo effects of guano (or the heat fluxes thereof) Grin
Perhaps an astrogeobiologist could contribute to studies of the extremophile prokaryotes who may inhabit guano deposits on ice flows.  Perhaps we can get some NASA funding for this craftster swap.
