21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I've got the NEW MAGAZINE!!!!!!!!!! on: November 04, 2004 01:12:15 PM
I have, on my lap, as I write this, the new premiere issue of Knit 1. I think they're trying too hard to impress the hip knitter. Layout can feel a bit too congested but i think it's all part of theire "edgey" look. There's some worthwhile patterns. But if I see another poncho, knit another poncho or have to read about ponchos one more time I will puke. The flowers are great, the fingerless gauntlets are pretty, and I like the neck warmer. There's a funky sweater on page 55 I like and there's something creepy but nice about the short knit pants on page 50. Go get one when it comes out. You may like it. May not. Overall it's not a bad rag.
22  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / My Store (someday) on: October 12, 2004 07:25:43 AM
I've been working in a fabric store that is sooooooo shlocky and is on the verge of closing it's doors. However, it's the only independent fabric store around for miles that sells what people need. And if you look beyond the shlock it's a great little place. So, I want to open my own and make it real cool. Is anyone out there reading this that owns a store and can give me some business advice based on your experiences past and present? I want to also hold classes because many of the people (potential customers) I've "interviewed" have expressed a big interest.
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / new books and pants on: October 05, 2004 05:55:20 AM
I found another LYS yesterday. That makes 4. Not including the mega craft stores or the small independent fabric store I work in. So while there I bought a Thaki booklet. I must make the kimono style jacket as well as a hundred other things in that book. Also, I picked up a recent past issue of Interweave. I was wondering if anyone out there has made the No Sweat Pants?

24  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Hand Painted vs. Dying? and... Props To KoolAid! on: October 03, 2004 01:12:02 PM
Is there a difference or is it the same?Huh?? If there's a difference, can someone tell me how to paint my wool yarn?

Also, the KoolAid is Kool (LOL). I've got some Lopi in the vat on the stove right now. It sucked that color in so quick. I can not wait to knit it. And when I do, I will post that pic up for all to see.
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / men's undies = new tank top for moi on: July 31, 2004 03:47:22 PM
Hey gals. I found an awesome idea (oh, how I wish it was mine) here:

I made one. I'm not totally done and I don't have photos yet, but as soon as I do I will post them. But in the meantime, here's a few hints for you.

1. Use really really good quality undies. This one I made (I made it about 5 minutes ago and have it on as I speak/write) from a pair from the dollar store. Quality is shit and you can see my happy nipsters so I guess I'll go make some goofy applique to cover those dolls up.

2. On Boogie she says to get a pair so the waist band and your chest size are in the same range. Hmmmmm..... I personally think going a size smaller than the fun-bags would be better. The top I've go on is kinda loose.

Man, this is such a freakin' cool shirt. I've got this "reunion" of camp families to be at and I am going to knock them all out with my home-made punk-rock clothes. Mind you, I am almost 34. I'm just reliving my salad days, when I was green.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Xtra long pillowcase into a dress??? on: June 26, 2004 06:54:21 AM
Hi there all you fellow crafty cats. I bought a few really nice pillowcases at the city mission for cheap and made one into a great drawstring skirt. The other one is one of those really long cases and I cut one end and slipped it on my dressform and it would make a fantabulous dress. Has anyone done this before? If you have, how did you go about it?

Help is much appreciated!  Smiley

Hi. I'm Mary. I own Butterfly Mary (clothing and accessories). It hasn't taken off yet. I am also co-owner of Fuller Station Arts, an online consignment company for those who live in the Albany/Schenectady/Saratoga area. We are looking for unique items to feature on our website. You, of course, earn most of the money but we do the work for you. If you are interested, post something here and leave me a way to get in touch with you.
