Knitting socks rocks! It's one of the best portable projects ever. Especially after I learned to knit both socks at the same time on 2 circulars.

Cheers for teaching someone else to knit! I am a continental knitter and it drives me nuts just to see someone knitting the slow way, so I hope you taught her continental. Wink  I just dont have the patience to teach and I think it's great someone does.

Good job on the colors too. Bright colors are great.

Thanks for the comments! and thanks about my hair, burnette is drastic change for me, but I love it.

Thanks again!

I knit up a hat this week, and it wasn't quite wide enough, so I picked up some stiches and made it like a button up cardigan! I just got the buttons sewn on, and did some goofy self portraits, and one of just the hat. Thinking of selling it on ebay to help finance my yarn habit. How much do you think I should ask for it?

It's pretty basic, just 1x1 ribbing and garter stitch, the yarn is a chunky acrylic/wool blend I picked up at a garage sale.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Meredith the Crazy Knitter on: February 05, 2005 11:17:03 AM
The thing about bamboo needles is that they aren't very slippery, nice for tight knits like socks and whatnot, but kinda slow .Sometimes I want my knitting to fly, the auid turbos are great, but expensive, so I tend to favor aluminum circs. Most of my needles are hand me downs or garage sale buys anyway.
As for yarn, i think acrylic is great for kid knits, it washes easily, and you don't have to worry about shrinking it. But if you are concerned about the environment, acrylic is a plastic, which is made of oil. So, my fellow hippies should all agree that natural fibers are the way to go.

That is great, my mom did something like that a while back, except her patches were squares with the back pockets still on 'em. I think it ended up on my brothers bed.

I think I have the book you are talking about! Is the one you have called "Be Marilyn! A Glamorous Guide to Living Blonde" by Gailyn Addis?

yep, thats the book. I think i picked it up in canada on one of my book buying sprees.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: iPod accessories! Speakers + case. on: August 25, 2004 03:28:44 PM
I just bought myslef a new 40 gig, 4g. I just love it! I also got the iTrip FM tranmitter. and it is SO much better than my old diskman with all the wires and what not in my car, and no more scratched up cds all over the floor! The case options for the 4g are very limited and i have yet to make my own, but i will get on it. I scratched it up pretty bad in the first week and since then, I try to keep it in my camera case when not in use.
The speaker stand you made is pretty nice, but the $150, considering the brand name on em, Altec Lansing, are probably very worth it. I have that brand for my computer speakers and they really kick a lot of ass. Or you could get a $30 FM tranmitter and play em on any radio stero anywhere.

awesome! in kindergarten my mom made wings for me and my friends and we were all butterflys for halloween. she used coathangers for the wire and black pantyhose, which we all glittered ourselves. i dont quite remember how we put them on. but they rocked our little worlds.
