1  EUROPE / GERMANY / store with products by independent designers in Munich on: August 04, 2010 09:22:03 PM
Hi, I'm looking for a store or maybe even section of the city that houses stores carrying independently made products such as Supermarche (?) in Berlin. Thanks!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / how to crochet ice cream swirl on: April 13, 2009 06:46:17 PM

I'm trying to crochet a baby hat that looks like a cone of soft serve ice cream with the swirls and I haven't been able to find a pattern. The ones I'm finding just have rounded tops. Does anyone know how to crochet a swirl that rises vertically. I'd be happy just for tips on how to do the swirly at the top, I just don't want to decrease to a point like an elf's hat. Thanks so much!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting at the beach? on: October 06, 2006 09:31:59 AM
Hi all. Tomorrow my daughter is going to be in a sand castle building competition for about five hours. I can't imagine just sitting around on the beach all that time doing nothing, but I'm wondering how wise it would be to bring my knitting. Any one have experience knitting at the beach? What would be the best way to keep the sand out and does the salty air do anything funky to the yarn? Thanks for any tips!

Hey, my five years old daughter made this doll with her grandmother. I'm so proud! Her name is Jessie.

Reggie the Robot and Franken Mummy Zombie Pig have been best friends since they woke up next to each other in the dank basement laboratory of a mad scientist aka, a cute eight year old girl with a warped sense of humor, namely my daughter.

Reggie is made from aluminum foil with a head full of beads. FMZP is papier mache and push pins and judicious use of red marker. His brain is a food dish from Littlest Pet Shop toys.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Artist Ruth Asawa's crochet wire sculptures on: September 13, 2006 09:32:02 AM
I recently went to the De Young Museum in San Francisco, and there was an exhibit of Ruth Asawa's wire sculptures. They are much more impressive in person than in the photos, but I thought they were so beautiful I just had to share.

These little doggies were made by my eight years old daughter, Ariane in polymer clay. She is very excited to enter this contest as she knows how addicted mom is to Craftster. The dogs are about 1.5 in each.

8  California / California: Central / Stitch n' Pitch in SF on: July 14, 2006 08:06:12 PM
The SF Giants are hosting a Stitch n' Pitch event at their July 20th game. Tickets are $20 and I guess the idea is to gather around with other knitters and knit away while watching the game. I'm not a baseball fan, so won't be going, but this would be a great for other Bay Area knitters/baseball fans looking for kindred spirits! Scroll down the link.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / styling hair for knitted doll on: February 27, 2006 11:46:33 AM
I posted in the doll making section but no help yet. Anyway, I have knitted a World of Warcraft doll and his hair needs to be styled like X-Men's Wolverine- swept up from the sides and flat on top. Can I use gel or hairspray on yarn or maybe a glue that dries clear? Would it be easier to use some furry fabric instead? I would appreciate any input!
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / styling hair for knitted doll on: February 26, 2006 08:05:30 PM
Hi, I just finished the body and head of a knitted doll. I'm not sure how to do the hair though. You see, it's a character from World of Warcraft and his hair is blue and styled like Wolverine's from X-men. It's swept up the sides and flat on top. I was  going to use  gel and hairspray, but I'm not sure if that would work on yarn. Maybe glue that dries transparent? Any helpful hints or suggestions would be appreciated!
