1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: oh shrinky dinks, where have you been all my life? on: June 16, 2007 06:27:47 PM
My husband would kill for a Laura Palmer keychain!   We own the whole series on (talk about old) VHS.  I see a future present coming.  Thank you for the inspiration.  Not having done shrinky dinks in about twenty years, I am so out of it that I didn't even know it came in inkjet versions.  Way cool!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: New Knitty is Up on: June 11, 2007 09:35:55 PM

it's almost like Amy is starting to go into the knitter stereotype of we all knit socks or for kids! (or have small chests!)

Amen -- sistah!  Big-boobed knitters unite!  (but, I do like the socks, myself) Wink

Dang, your kid is photogenic.  It's like, she's a cute little baby and a wise little woman all in the same pic.  (And the cross stitch is funny, too.)  Smiley

Thank the lord my kid was asleep when I looked at this.  If she caught a peep of this baby, I'd have my summer cut out for me.  (Either making it or listening to her ask to look at it constantly.)

When your kids turn fourteen and start acting supremely ungrateful, have a snapshot of this handy to whip out.  You are the coolest mom, and deserve never-ending gratitude. Grin

There's also a pair of spinners who have a studio downtown and sell on the web and at the farmer's market.  I live in town, but I found them through a blog reference and still haven't made it to the market.  The names of the two stores mentioned in a previous post are NW Handspun yarns (downtown) and Wool Station (Fairhaven).  I like them both very much.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Are wedding photographers REALLY this expensive!?!?! on: June 05, 2007 06:14:29 AM
Yeah -- it's a little crazy, isn't it.  Also, something to think of, the $3000 guys make their living by owning the rights to your images and selling you prints.  You will never pry the digital files out of their hot little hands.  If you have a relative who will "gift" you with the time to take pictures, I would think about their personality, and the personality of your family, and probably go with that. 

I mean, 3,000 would buy a pretty decent trip somewhere.  Wouldn't a cheap week in Paris do more for your marriage than looking through a photo album? Wink

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I don't get it. on: May 22, 2007 08:11:51 PM
I don't usually try out new stitches (although I made my mom the study-study-party dishcloths in knitty, and it was fun making lace), I just make the boring ol' garter stitch square that starts at three stitches and increases till you're sick of it and decreases till you're done.

It's therapy.

When all has gone crap in a week, a couple of weekend hours reading and knitting in the hammock can produce something functional, semi-cute, and definitely finished.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knit mitered corner edging on: May 16, 2007 09:51:00 PM
I'm sure that I will feel silly if someone can explain this to me, but I can't seem to find an answer/ figure this out for myself:

I've knitted most of a log cabin blanket -- and I have a big square.  I want to knit an edging for it so that one color of stitches goes all the way around the blanket, if you get my meaning.  I don't want it fancy or anything -- just garter stitch.  Will I just pick up stitches all the way around?  Mostly, I don't know how I can deal with the corners.   Clearly, I need to increase, but I don't know how much, or how many, or what increase is best. 

Any help is very much appreciated.   Smiley 
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: need suggestions for first "fancy" sock pattern on: May 09, 2007 10:08:48 PM
Also -- you might check out Sensational Knitted Socks.  It has these really funky-looking big charts instead of patterns, but the good news is you can knit lots of different "fancy" socks, any size, lots of gauges.  I went straight from my first pair of knit socks to this book, and I didn't find the charts too hard.  And it was really nice not to have to "get gauge" to make a sock that fit -- I could work with the "gauge I got", if you know what I mean.
