1  What to do with a mirrored door? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by Sati on: July 04, 2006 02:46:49 PM
I found this on the curb.  It's a solid wood, hinged door with mirror that is very, very heavy.  I was thinking of painting is bronze and hanging it over my sofa, or adding hooks to the bottom and hanging it in my entry hall.  But I thought I would ask you creative people if there is something more interesting or clever I could do with it.  Thanks Smiley

They remind of Carlos Santana's "Roar" shoes Smiley

3  How difficult would it be to recover this chair? in Discussion and Questions by Sati on: August 23, 2005 04:05:47 PM
How difficult would it be to recover this chair and just generally fix it up a bit?  I've never done anything like this.  I'm looking for a cheap but sturdy and comfortable office chair.

I wanted this one but it's gone  Cry

Well Cascade Fixation is 50g/186 yds and 5.5s = 1" #5-9.  And Classic Elite Star is 50g/126 yds (not the same weight) and 5 sts/#8.

The thing is Star is a really puffy yarn (sorta like Knitpicks Crayon).  Take a look.

Sorry to bump an old post, but I have the exact same problem as petillante.  Now I actually completed almost an entire skein, saw that the scarf was simply going to be too short to wear properly, and frogged all of this:

I know I'm a tight knitter and I saw that the yarn actually calls for a 10.5 needle, whereas the pattern calls for a 10.  My scarf in that pic was rather stiff because it's a decent width yarn, but knitted very tightly on needles even smaller than recommended.  It wasn't horrible, but stiff.

I went ahead and bought Denise set of interchangeable needles so that I could mess around with gauge without having to go back to the store all the time or go broke buying every single needle size.  I was able to get the 3 stitches per inch as recommended on the Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn by using size 11 needles.  However, if I cast on the 32 inches the pattern calls for with size 11's the scarf is more like 8-10 inches wide instead of the 5" it says it should be.  I'd have to cast on about 20-some stitches to stay at 5 inches. 

I'm really not sure what to do.  I don't want to get as far as I got before and have to frog it all again.  I don't really want to cast on less stitches, and I don't really want to buy another skein (if they even have the right dye lot still) because I'd like to learn how to get the patterns right.  That's why I bought the called for yarn.  I'm frustrated, grrr.
