I did some cellulose transfers for a swap not long ago, thanks to this fab tute. Anyway I discovered completely by accident that I got a much blacker transfer using the original print-out from my laser printer, instead of the photocopy. It did go a bit smudgy in places though so I had to be very careful. And I don't know if the transfer will be as durable.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: is knitting addictive? on: September 19, 2007 05:18:17 AM
Totally addictive. I took up knitting seriously (rather than just dabbling) to help me stop smoking. Now I spend more on yarn than I ever did on cigarettes, and I've put on serious amounts of weight from sitting on my arse knitting instead of exercising.

But I have no intention of quittng knitting Grin

Details of swap:

Right, listen up you bunch of pansies. I want volunteers for a job. It could get a bit tasty so we're going to have to go in tooled up. I'm talking needles, string and lots of beige. If you can't hack it, walk away now.

Your job is to craft a package based on the BBC series Life on Mars. You'll be assigned a partner and you'll be using this new-fangled 'wide world of web' to talk to her (or him. We're not sexists here). You'll make one large, one medium and one small item for your partner who in turn will make something for you. Remember to talk to each other. If there's an odd number of participants I'll make it a round-robin instead.

Right you tarts! get moving.
