161  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Re: Adam Sessler Silk Screen on: January 27, 2006 05:15:01 AM
I'm jealous, my high school arts and crafts always consisted of embroidery (which in theory is cool but in reality was a little too time intensive and meant the one thing you don't want from a craft class: homework), making picture holders out of wire, and wrapping yarn around stuff: not knitting or crocheting, or anything of the such but getting some type of core: paper, foam, wire, what have you, and wrapping yarn around it.

Maybe its only me, but from a distance sessler sorta looks like bush.
Heh, I wonder which one has the higher approval rating.

Well, I don't know a thing about japanese patterns and can't follow graphs for the life of me, but one thing I do know from doing tech support is that the first thing you do is to always make sure that the person is on the same page as you are.

So, when you do a sc decrease do you just skip the hole or do you sc the next 2 stitches together by drawing the loop through and moving onto the next stitch, doing a single crochet drawing through three loops instead of the normal 2?

hmm, you're talking about making self patterning yarn I'm guessing. I don't know of any websites with instructions but there is a book out there that'll show you how to do it: "Yarns to Dye For : Creating Self-Patterning Yarns for Knitting" by Kathleen Taylor isbn:1931499810
and at amazon:

Personally though, I like the chaos of random hand painting.
