Hm. I haven't thought that far ahead.  In my modifications, I was keeping the back steak...

yummy, yummy, steak.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Smiley

hey, why don't you put a picture here, some photos of your stickers that you have created with xyron. I want to know if it's able to make a sticker that has shiny, transparent, kinda puffy thing on it's front side, then the adhesive at the back part.

No the Xyrons can't make stickers that are puffy (or flocked, or 3D). They make stickers by basically putting a layer of glue on the back of whatever you put through it. I think they only take things that are 1/16th of an inch thick, so you couldn't have something puffy and put that through.
3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Rambling Rose Cardigan KAL, anyone? on: May 15, 2007 11:05:08 AM
I have already made this cardi, here's a link to all my blog posts on it:

I'm embarassed, I finished it in February, and I still don't have a full shot of me in it. I haven't found buttons I like yet, that's why.

I modified it so I could knit the body as one piece until the armholes, and that did give a bit of extra room, as the 4 stitches that would normally get taken up in the seaming were actual body stitches. I have a 34" bust, so I made the 30" and it fits very well. I think I had the same gauge, but can't remember.
I also didn't to all the intarsia, because I didn't have that much contrast colour, and I was knitting from my stash. I did the shells on the sleeves, and the button/neck band and that was it.

I think the negative ease works well with this pattern to stretch out the lace, although I finally understand why some people sew grosgrain ribbon along the button hole band, as it can stretch.

I just looked through this today in a local bookstore, and it looks great! I think I will definitely buy it, I just can't right now. Sad I really liked their other book too.

Apart from the projects (there's a really cool jacket called the Kimono jacket, I think) I just love the way the books are designed. very cool.

Heh, space kitty I'm working on some Shakespeare now too! And my yarn just arrived for this sweater.
Sadly though, I'm the stage manager, so I can't knit in rehearsal. Sad
6  CANADA / British Columbia / Re: Victoria FIBRE FEST! on: April 05, 2007 12:29:26 PM
That little one in Estevan village? I went in there once with my mum before I was a knitter myself, so I can't remember what the choice is like sadly.

Yes that's the one!

I haven't been there yet, as it is sort of out of my way, but I'm planning to venture over there this weekend, hopefully.  I'll let you know! (or you can let me know, if you beat me there!)  Cheesy

Sadly I don't live in Victoria anymore. I never went there after I became a knitter because we lived sorta close to there, but not quite. It was 'well, I could walk to Estevan village.... or drive to the Beehive, it takes the same amount of time'. I also suppose I could have driven to Estevan village, but then I'd feel lazy. Tongue

oooh, I love those Alice & Olivia pants! *makes note*
I have also never made pants before, but I want to. hotpatterns.com has some cool patterns, but I think I might try another pattern company first, in case pants make me crazy.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: HotPatterns - worth the plunge? on: March 28, 2007 09:13:25 PM

I was just looking at their website.  It seems that if there are 6 patterns that you absolutely love, then why not buy them?

I went through and made a note of everything that I thought 'I'd wear that!' and I had 14 on my list by the end!  Embarrassed Now some of those are easily weeded out, and there are definitely enough 'omg want it now's that I may just go ahead and splurge.... it is almost my birthday after all. Smiley
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HotPatterns - worth the plunge? on: March 28, 2007 10:53:25 AM
I've been obsessing over the hotpatterns.com site recently. I love the looks (Artful Dodger! so cool!), and I've been doing all the research I can here and on Patternreview.com.
I'm a beginner sewer, I am currently just making practice garments but I really want to progress to making as much of my clothing as I can, and Hot Patterns has styles I like.
I'm also Canadian, and if you buy more than 6, there is free shipping. I'm a sucker for free shipping. Smiley
I've got my birthday coming up, and I'm wondering if I should take the plunge and use birthday money to get 6, and have no shipping, or if I should test one out first, and pay shipping.

The reviews I've read didn't make it any easier to decide if I wanted to order any of the patterns, some say there are too many mistakes, others ended up with garments that fit perfectly with no alterations.

6 would be a lot of money, birthday money or not (I have been informed by my mum that birthday money is for fun things, not stuff like rent or groceries).  I think I'm just falling prey to the amazing marketing phenomenon that is free shipping.

It feels good to ramble at people who understand. Smiley
