Details of swap:  It's my first time organizing. (Eek!) This swap involves crafts inspired by the Series of Unfortunate Events books and movie. Anything goes- Esme's jewelry, interesting inventions, chew toys for babies, Violet's awesome coat (hint, hint  Wink ) .... I trust everyone to use their best judgement regarding what to send.  One large item (or 2 medium) plus several small items is a nice standard to go by.  I've allowed an entire month for crafting, so we should all be able to come up with awesome stuff!

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dream vacation swap? on: April 06, 2005 01:33:22 PM
I've been sitting here in breezy, tropical Indiana (ha!) dreaming of vacations I'm too poor to take. I thought a trip-related swap might be a nice substitute.
Everyone could pick a place or two (not necessarily tropical either- I'd choose Paris). This could be an interesting way to learn more about another country/state/product of partner's imagination.
What do you think? Smiley
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Series of Unfortunate Events on: March 23, 2005 03:22:16 PM
 I've just signed up for the Harry Potter swap, and it seems like time to start a swap for another popular series.  I'm rather obsessed with the Lemony Snicket books (I've yet to see the movie) and would love to organize a swap.  It could involve both the books & the movie adaptation.  The costumes from the movie are quite inspiring. Check out the thread in the Clothing forum (under "designer homage") for some ideas & pics. Both crafts and accessories would be welcome. 
If there's enough interest, I'd like to make the sendout date for late April/early May.  I'm currently involved in several swaps & have a bunch of homework, and I'm sure many of you are equally busy.
(Sorry for any garbled writing. I've had too much wine in an effort to put off my midterm essay.)
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Horridly evil anti-knitting dog! on: February 11, 2005 08:24:51 PM
My formerly sweet pup, Olive, is on a mission to destroy my knitting fun.  Recently, she's taken to chomping on my bamboo needles (as I knit with them).  Just a minute ago I caught her trying to scurry away with a hank of yarn in her mouth.  She's a dinky dachshund & the yarn was at least 1/3 of her size. She's always been inclined to sit on my knitting projects, but terrorizing them is new.  Putting things in boxes or on high tables is no longer enough, I guess.  Why can't she at least go for my easily (and cheaply) replaced Red Heart yarn & aluminum needles? No, she must have bamboo and alpaca yarn to munch. Evil, I say.
Anyone else have a nutsoid dog (or cat or other)?
Imagine what would happen if I brought her to a yarn store... *shudder*
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Movie Knits on: March 23, 2004 09:42:55 AM
Ever since I've become a rather obsessed knitter, I've been inspired by knitted things in random movies.  It's probably a bad habit, since I now tend to flip through my books, trying to figure out how to make things... and end up having to do lots of rewinding to figure out what's going on in the movie.  This all started when I watched "Death to Smoochy"- Catherine Keener wears some awesome scarves & hats!
This morning I watched "I Capture the Castle" and found myself drooling over the fabulous knitted things the characters wore. The movie's set in England somewhere in the 20's or 30's & is chock full of hats & sweaters.  For all of an hour I imagined myself frolicking about town in similar knitwear. (Though after consulting the "Vintage Knits" book, I'm going to have to drastically improve my knitting skills before any such thing can happen Smiley )  
Has anyone else been inspired by knitting or crochet in movies??? Something besides "Harry Potter" & "Dr. No"....  ( I started knitting to make myself a Harry Potter scarf. It's been over a year & I've made a billion things, but no  Potter scarf yet! Argh!)
