1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / semi-noob question about attaching new yarn to previously held stitches?! on: December 30, 2008 09:31:29 PM
so after getting bored with crochet because i can now do it with my eyes closed and my hands tied behind my back (haha what a feat), i decided to take up knitting. i've been doing it for maybe two years now, but until just now, the thought of branching out beyond scarves and hats terrified me. i taught myself how to do cables before christmas and having this week completely free of responsibilities, i decided to tackle these knit-flat fingerless handwarmers in the "101 designer one skein wonders" book - the hugs and kisses with love ones. and other than the pattern being written kind of vaguely, i'm proudly succeeding without frustration.

but i was reading ahead in the pattern and i realized that soon i'm going to have to stick the thumb stitches on a stitch holder and finish up the body of the hand part and then finish knitting the thumb. and then it occured to me... how do i start knitting with new yarn on those thumb stitches?? i'm sure the answer is plain and simple but i just can't picture it. help!!!
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / candy stripers laptop bag stitch pattern question on: August 09, 2008 12:22:15 AM
okay, i really don't like to knit, i prefer to crochet, but this bag is the perfect size for my laptop, and that stitch pattern makes no sense to me. does it come out the same size if you just do it in stockinette? is that stitch pattern really necessary??

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / creative ways to make your own scrapbook albums? on: May 27, 2008 11:42:54 AM
i finally gave in and started buying the supplies to start scrapbooking!! i've been avoiding it for so long because i see how much some people end up spending on it and i was bad enough buying yarn all the time LOL. but it sucked me in and now i'm exploring all my options. i've been seeing some really cute handmade scrapbook albums around here, rather than the big fancy ones you can buy. i've seen the paper bag ones and heard of some cardboard ones, but i'm not sure how to do all that. what are some other materials and techniques you guys use to make your own scrapbook albums??
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / how would you make peanut butter? on: May 23, 2008 08:55:53 PM
what colors do you guys think in the sculpeyIII would mix together and best match the color of peanut butter?
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / what can i do with translucent clay? on: May 23, 2008 10:54:09 AM
i'm still new to polymer clay but i've been experimenting lately. i've been making little animals (so far a penguin and an owl, and today hopefullya turtle!), just to see what i'm capable of so far. i work at michael's and all their little 2oz polymer clays are 99 cents this week, so of course i stocked up. i bought one sculpeyIII thing of "translucent" because i was curious, and before i destroy it LOL, i was wondering, what kind of things have you/could you do with translucent clay? how does it look when it's done? i'd love pictures!!

also, any other beginner project suggestions would be great!  Smiley
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / polymer clay magnets? on: January 16, 2008 10:33:39 PM
okay, probably a dumb question, but i just wanted to double check. i want to make some polymer clay magnets for my fridge, and i was wondering if it was better to just glue the magnets on after baking or if i can bake the magnets on the clay?
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / for those of you who make the cute mini cakes... on: May 14, 2007 09:22:52 AM
i want to try my hand at this and seeing as i'm still a newbie, i was wondering when the best time is to "cut the cake" haha - before you bake or after?
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / cheapest pasta machine? on: May 13, 2007 11:26:58 AM
i saw a pasta clay machine at ac moore yesterday on sale for $10, but my fiance, who's a cook, said you can get a regular pasta machine at some places for as low as $7. how much was your pasta machine and where did you get it, or do you know of any online place to get one for cheap?
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / anything i can do to make flannel less pilly and more sturdy? on: May 12, 2007 05:37:52 PM
i have that really cute "cotton candy friends" flannel fabric from joann's and i'd LOVE to make a simple hobo out of it. but i've made flannel purses before and they pill so bad, i was wondering if there was anything i could do to prevent that?? and what weight of interfacing/what type do you guys think would be good??
