Gotta say, I think your bag is tremendous.  Those other contest winners don't really appeal to me at all, but who's going to say we don't need more pockets?!  Your bag is perfect, let us know if you ever decide to sell it or the pattern, I'd love to have one.

It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to meet the Muppets
On the Muppet Show tonight!

I am so in love with this bracelet!  Great job!

This is BEAUTIFUL work.  I love the detail, and I really like your artistic style.  The two main panels are adorable.  And what a way to personalize your house!  Great job.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mittens! on: December 10, 2007 08:25:16 AM
This is not the first non-square thing I've knitted, but it's one of the first ones.

I used the "Funky Fur Mittens" pattern from "The Knitter's Bible: Knitted Accessories" and US size 10-1/2 needles.  I modified the pattern to include ribbing in the cuff because the mittens in the pattern had a rope-tie-thing.  Which is weird on mittens.  The yarn is Yarn Bee's Mosaic Twist in the "Moody Blue" colorway.

My first attempt was awful.  It was way too small and just...not good.  You can't really tell from the pictures, but it was uncomfortable.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Crafty Penpals! on: December 09, 2007 06:12:17 PM
I'd love to have a penpal!  I stole the form Gina used because I have an unnatural affection for filling out forms.  Cheesy

Name: Katie
Age: 26
Location: Sadly, central Illinois, in a town called Normal (who thought THAT would be a good idea?)
Pets: A rat named Cissy (short for Narcissa)
Religious Views: Atheist, with a history of Paganism/Wicca.
Hobbies & Crafts: Knitting, reading, theatre (it's more like a job, let's be honest), costuming, sewing, computers, listening to music and podcasts, going to sci-fi/fantasy conventions in costume; I just found out how awesome glass etching is, and I'm going to try screenprinting and maybe some clay sculpting soon.
Quirks: I'm still in school for my undergrad degree.  When I graduate, I'll have 8 years of college under my belt, two majors, two minors, a teaching certificate, and a hell of a strong desire to leave the Midwest.  Right now, I'm sort of obsessive about the fact that I'm still in school, so I reference the fact that I'm an old college student a lot.  I'm just a bit neurotic about how often I'm confused for an 18-year-old.  I spell things the British way sometimes, and I say, "Bugger that," sometimes, and I flip people off with two fingers instead of my middle finger.  I attribute all of this to my Harry Potter obsession.
Obsessions: Knitting; I've recently found out about the Sore Joints and Hand Cramp from personal experience.  I love it too much.  Converse low-tops.  The color green.  Anything Harry Potter.  Anything Johnny Depp.  Theatre.  My grades (very recently bit by the overachiever bug).  Pushing Daisies.  Buffy, Firefly/Serenity.
Goals: Graduate.  Go to China and teach English for 10 months.  Visit Lhasa.  Move to California or Georgia when I return from China.  Get a job teaching History and Theatre to high school students.  Direct a musical.  Direct "Major Barbara" by George Bernard Shaw.  Direct "Edges" by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.  Visit Greece again.
Music: Peter Mulvey, The Police, Supertramp, The Eagles, REM, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Genesis, The Beatles, Sting, Aerosmith, 80s music of all kinds, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette, Sarah McLaughlin, Dido, Rooney, lcd soundsystem, Beck, among lots, lots more.  Then throw in the occasional hip hop/r&b/rap song, and one or two country songs, and that's most of it.
TV: Currently: Pushing Daisies.  Waiting for next season: 24, Battlestar Galactica.  Cancelled: Firefly, Buffy, The O.C.

I'd love to have a pen pal, I love finding out about other people's interests and lives!  And I also love getting mail, it's like a little Christmas present when I get non-junk letters.  Smiley

EDIT: I've got two penpals now!  Thanks, everyone! (2/1/08)

A)  Your hair is amazingly adorable.  I could never get mine to do that when it was short.  So cute.

B)  I covet that snowflake shirt.  COVET.

Soooo....cuuuuuute.....  Great job.  And she's SO ADORABLE.
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: OK, here's a challenge..... on: October 11, 2007 08:35:37 AM
* finials for a curtain rod -- and how chic over a kitchen window!

This is an awesome idea.  If you could get more, you could use them as handles for cabinets, and towel rack, etc.  You could have a total mixer kitchen.  Especially if, like me, you love love love those old Kitchenaid stand mixers.  In fact, now I'm thinking I'll do this when I get my own place.  Maybe paint the room that fabulous retro green?  Of course, I won't be getting my own place for a long time...
9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Silhouette Window on: October 04, 2007 09:49:38 AM
*squee!!!!*  Amazing!  I'm going to steal this idea and put up a tea party silhouette for our Wonderland-themed Halloween party!  Awesome!

WOW.  Those are AMAZING.  Fabulous job, the construction looks great and talk about originality.  I'm in Costume Design class this semester and our teacher talks about making strong choices all the time.  Sometimes I'm not sure I get what she means by that, but then I see something like this, and suddenly "strong choices" makes sense.

Well done.
