181  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 6 skeins of noro kureyon? on: March 29, 2006 02:32:16 PM
I made fuzzy feet from knitty.  I increased the rows around the ankle so that they were higher *living in the north you always get cold ankles* and they felted wonderfully into thick socks.  The only thing ive found to be cautious of when felting Kureyon is not to knit too tightly, especially if you are knitting two strands together, as it will not felt fully Smiley i also made a thick mini-coat for my dads chihuahua out of double stranded kureyon, and felted little mini saddle bags onto the sides to hold his snacks and poop bags!  Cheesy
182  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / mocha chocolate soap on: February 18, 2006 03:45:51 PM
hi everyone! i just made my seconde batch of melt and pour soap, and i love it. the first one i used a collection of Thai herbs from a herbal massage stem, it turned out great, but it looks like horse poo! i guess just cause i used the clear glycerin, and the herbs look like wet straw inside the soap...
The seconde batch that i just made is definately terrific. i used no name brand hot chocolate mix which is only cocoa, evapourated milk and sugar, and coffee grounds, and i also added some natural sea salt for exfoliation. its delicious.
the only problem is that it made my soap molds have tiny bubbly holes in them... did i maybe pour the soap too hot? or is it because of the sugar in the hot chocolate mix?
any pointers, ideas to prevent this for a SSN (super soap newbie) ?

on another note does anyone know if persimmon essential oil is available?
thanks in advance for any pointers!!

this is so awsome. what cute bags. ive never knitted a bag before so this will be a challenge for me.  its a good first time bag project though cause its small and cute and it will finish up quickly.  ive also never done lace before (successfully - the branching out scarf is my nemesis) so excited to start! Cheesy

185  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cool pompom scarf... any ideas? on: February 09, 2006 12:00:42 PM
you could make/buy a million mini poms and then string them along on a thread and knit that with another kind of yarn. that would work best with the store bought mini poms. id use storebought ones simply cause of the amount of time you'd be saving by having them readymade.
186  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I tried knitting the sushi! on: February 09, 2006 11:04:34 AM
The sushi looks terrific! im thinking of knitting a sushi feast for my sister as a display for her art class *she teaches fine arts and keeps harassing me to do a course for her students* sushi would be a nice instant gratification project for them i think.. Smiley
