31  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to "loopy" braid roving? on: June 19, 2007 07:25:20 AM
Sounds like finger-crochet to me.  If you google how to make a daisy chain with rope, you should be able to figure it out (same technique).

32  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Which sense do you use most while knitting? on: June 11, 2007 05:22:10 PM
WIPs, you beat me to it-  I was going to say I knit by smell as well Cheesy

Actually, I think I mostly knit by feel, although I glance at my work pretty often (especially since I hardly ever do anything that is just plain stockinette or garter- I lean towards the complex).

I actually like this issue better than any I've seen in a while...I do love socks, though, so I never complain about too many.  I also really like askew, and the hemp skirt (although it seems like an adult version might be really heavy).  I think wisp is really pretty too.  I also always find inspiration in lace patterns, even if I'm not going to knit the garment (like, "oh, the lace pattern on those socks would look really great in the sweater I've been thinking about making").

I always thought it was kind of unfair that spelling counted in dendro...I was pretty lax about it.  But you're on the right track- one of my best students claimed that knitting while studying was what got her through.  At least you got a good needle holder out of the class!

At the risk of sounding redundant...that is gorgeous  Cheesy.  Beautiful design, it loks very professional.

Off topic, but...I was a dendrology TA for the past two years.  And if you think Parthenocissus quinquefolium is hard to spell, how about Metasequoia glyptostroboides (did you have to learn that one?). 

Very creative needle-holder design- I would make one, only I'm leaning in the direction of only ever using circular needles.
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Summer Snow Tank Top on: June 10, 2007 07:06:08 PM
That's really pretty!  I like the lace pattern a lot.  I made two tank tops with basically the same construction- on the second one I did applied i-cord around the top, rather than garter stitch, and I really liked the way it came out- it gave a closer fit around the neckline, and looked really nice.  I know that doesn't really help you this time around (though I think doing a row of crochet would accomplish pretty much the same thing, like you said)- but in case you have any similar projects planned for the future.  Looks great as is anyway!

Oh, and also..doesn't short row shaping rock?
38  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: temptation on: June 06, 2007 04:08:10 PM
I get food cravings if I need some nutrient or vitamin- not usually for meat, but definitely for protein sometimes.  You could always talk to your doctor or a nutritionist to make sure you're getting everything you need.  And you might not want to take iron supplements before talking to a doctor (as it turns out, for me personally, taking iron is just about the worst thing I can do for my health).
39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bra making help? Advice/moral support would be very welcome. on: June 06, 2007 06:40:48 AM
Thanks for the help, everyone!  The Kwick-sew patterns look pretty good, so I think I will start there.  Seampoints, non-sweatshop clothing is one of my goals as well, so I understand where you're coming from there.

Ok, I think I've finally reached the breaking point.  It's basically impossible to find bras in my size (32 D), especially non-underwire ones.  So, I've come to the inevitable conclusion that I should try making my own. 

I'm pretty much a novice at sewing, however, so I'm kind of intimidated.  I don't think I could do it without a pattern, and taking apart an old bra and making my own pattern (or recycling the components) is not really an option.

If anyone has a pattern recommendation I would be very, very greatful.  Ideally, I'd like something without an underwire (and one that doesn't look like an old-lady bra, which everything in my size at the bra store did).  I'm willing to make modifications if necessary, though.  Any other tips  would be most welcome as well!
