6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Finish discoloring on Knit Picks Needles! on: June 10, 2007 04:56:47 PM
I purchased a set of Knit Picks Options and some DPNs back in April/May.  I just noticed this week that the nickle finish is wearing off or discoloring!  I called and told customer service that this was happening and they said they had never heard of it happening before and replaced the specific needle tips that it was happening on.  I am worried that this will start happening on all the other tips too.  I can see it starting to happen on the DPNs that I started using last week.  Has this happened to anybody else?  Does it effect your knitting?  Should I be concerned that I have some weird nickle eating acid being extruded from my hands?

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ginkgo Godesses on: May 09, 2007 01:22:56 PM
I pulled out a project that I started on last year. I ADORE Japanese art and when I found a Lonni Rossi panel titled Ginkgo Godesses in a quilt shop, I had to have it right then! There are three godesses per panel, so I decided to give each one the atributes of an element. I dug through my hand dyed fabric stash and gave them each a beautiful new kimono and a sparkly crown. I even fussy cut out some foliage for their Ginkgo accessories.

Here is what they started out as

And here is how they all look now




On Wind I went over the seams with a black pen to hide the white spaces peeking out from between the pieces and to add back in the lines in the folds. I haven't done that yet on the other two. They will eventualy have a narow red border and a wide black border added to the outside edges to frame them for becoming wall hangings. I am going to purchase another one of these panels, plus some Geisha panels that are being released this spring for some further experamentation Grin
