1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My version of the Olympic opening ceremony US Hat on: February 19, 2010 05:07:20 AM
With the help of a couple free Ravelry patterns (Olympic Reindeer Hat and the fornicating deer chart) I was able to do make my DH a hat.  Quick work but he loves it!

Considering that the "official" hats are going for over $300 on Ebay.........

Yipeee!  Now I get to watch both grow up.  

I have so been enjoying watching the monkey progress into such a sweet little girl........ Now I hope to live vicariously though both children.  I'm tickled pink for myself but I am also happy for you and your's.

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing thread tension problems...what am I doing wrong? on: March 29, 2008 04:58:26 AM
could be anything -- even dust buildup.  Lint around the bobbin case can throw the thread off track.  If you haven't used your machine in awhile, could be old thread.

I think the pocket would look great placed high on center back of the shirt.  More "wtf" attitude.

Good job.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Whatcha makin' me... maybe a... blue sweater? on: January 16, 2008 04:30:33 AM
Looks fantastic.  And, Lordy, what would I give for a project of mine to draw such a big smile!!

I don't know if lobster boy was ever arrested for murder but he himself was murdered. 

I live about 5 miles from his home town of Gibsonton/Showtown USA.  There was an X-files episode that was a take-off of the whole mess.  Agents Fox and Scully were in Gibsonton investigating.  Funny thing is -- TV land Gibsonton had mountains in the landscape.  Mountains in FL is an even stranger phenomenon.

Anyway.......... good work.

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Santa brought me a sewing machine for Christmas on: December 26, 2007 02:07:55 PM
Drop in bobbin is easier to use but the vertical bobbins you can adjust the bobbin tension by turning the little screw on the side of the bobbin holder thingy.  Not sure you would ever need to adjust the bobbin tension.  But if you are working with a heavy decorative bobbin thread you may need to loosen.  The drop in the only adjustment that can be done in such a situation is to bypass the tension slots.  Or so I believe.  Really doesn't matter in most cases.

Kenmore has a good rep for appliances in general and their sewing machines have always been pretty good.  FWIW, my current machine is a Kenmore purchased about 10yrs ago.  Not the basic model (has a bunch of fancy stitches I never use), will trade them all for a needle-threader  Roll Eyes

Anyway, when I bought that machine I was told that it was made for Kenmore by Janome.  Not sure if all Kenmores are Janome but if so........ good deal.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: No slip knot cast on on: September 20, 2007 09:26:44 AM
Actually, the no slip knot way of starting the long tail cast on is just an easier way of doing a slip knot.

By looping the yarn around your thumb and then doing the "sling-shot" action makes a slip knot instead of the cumbersome way that a slip knot is usually made.  I even do my first stitch/chain in crochet the same way.

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: new to mosaics, looking for some tips on: September 19, 2007 03:10:05 PM
Hi, I am a mosaic artist........  What kind of questions do you have?  First thing, make sure your base is suitable.  Wood can be used if properly sealed.  Too many variables to just give blanket advice.
