61  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / left handed question on: November 14, 2006 09:09:49 PM
hey everyone

i'm new to fairly new to crocheting.  i've made some pretty basic scarfs and i'm half way through a queen sized afghan.  they're either a double or single stitch. 

at this point i'm feeling ready for more, but i'm having to read up and learn the vocab (i self taught myself the other stuff).

anyway, my question is....

i'm left handed.  when i crochet, i hold the hook in my left hand.  some people have said that i'm croceting like a right handed person would and/or like a lefty.  WHICH is correct?

i'm googling instructions, but i need to know if i'm crocheting left or right handed.  i know this is probably a VERY stupid question.

thanks to anyone who can help me with this!

62  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / DFA 1979 and Cliches. My Newest Stencils. Who Are You Not To Check Them Out? on: November 08, 2006 10:39:01 AM
Hey all,

I've finally got off my tush and made some new stencils. 

The first is a Death From Above 1979 hoodie I made for my husbands birthday. 


The second is a shirt I ripped off from the Threadless site.  I find hours of endless comedy searching through their Text Shirt section.  This will be the first of many copies.


Thanks for taking a look!  Let me know what you think.
63  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / What does acrylic paint with textile medium mean? on: October 16, 2006 08:40:48 PM
i hear a lot of talk on these boards about mixing acrylic paint with textile medium.  i have NO idea what that means!

does it mean you're taking a regular acrylic paint and adding something to it?  i know this is probably a dumb question, but hey - i'm full of them!

thanks to anyone who can help!
64  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / I want to stencil my umbrella...BUT HOW? on: October 16, 2006 07:01:08 PM
i was wondering if someone could help me out with this.

i just picked up a pretty cool black umbrella at a dollar store.  as soon as i looked at it, i thought it should probably be stenciled. 

here's the problem, i have no idea what to do paint wise.

i've picked up some contact paper.  i usually do freezer paper, but i can't iron on this material.  BUT because of that i can set the paint by ironing. 

how can i set the paint if i can't iron it?  is there a sealant i can use?  i don't want it to wash away in the rain!!

thanks to anyone who can help!

Does anyone know where I could buy this in bulk?  I've found some listings on Ebay, but they won't ship to me.

Thanks for the help!!

66  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Where Do You Find These Things??? on: September 30, 2006 07:09:05 PM
I've been looking around for stuff like castor oil and epsom salts in bulk.  What I've found is these ingredients in the smallest possible packages I've imagined.

Does anyone have any hints?  Anything Canada specific would be awesome, but not necessary.

Thanks again!

How can i tell how many yards are in a piece of fabric.

See, I'm Canadian and I'm not feeling too familiar with any measurement system at the moment.

Basically, I'm just wondering how many inches and how to measure it properly.

I will love whoever answers this for me.  True love, not that puppy kind!
