1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please Help - Ball Gown Skirt on: April 30, 2005 10:04:27 AM
tigralon - great links.  Thanks! 

dusk - I did try searching, the problem being that I wasn't quite sure what I was searching for.  It always helps when you know ahead of time what word to type in that search box.  Wink
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Please Help - Ball Gown Skirt on: April 25, 2005 02:52:39 PM
Shade n Shadow, are you still around?  That girl could so anything. 

Could one of you knowledgable Craftsters please advise me on how to go about constructing a tulle skirt that goes under a ball gown?  I'm not even sure what they're called.  I tried googling, to no avail.  I have Vogue Vintage pattern 2239 - a strapless ball gown - that I'm making for a girl as a prom dress.  She wants a little something under it to make it poofy.  It looks really poofy on the front of the pattern, but I don't think it will lay that way in real life. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?  I have a crap-load of tulle.  Thanks in advance for any help offered. Smiley

While I'm not certain that I would ever wear a wristband, the octopus is super adorable.  I would love to see him on socks!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I'm allergic to wool, what shall I do? on: November 19, 2004 05:31:42 PM
I know this probably isn't the answer you were looking for, but...

If you're that allergic to wool, do you really want to crochet a whole project out of the recycled yarn?  Your hands will be killing you before you're done unravelling!  To expand on Daphne Descends' idea, especially if you have a sewing machine:  make a throw pillow out of the sweater itself. 

This tutorial that I found on a google search involves felting the sweater first (good to avoid unravelling):


Here's another tutorial thagt does not involve felting the sweater (but you'd have to be more careful while sewing it up):


Good luck!  It is a lovely color, and I'm sure you'll find something great to do with it.

I'm pretty sure that scarf was knit - either using gigantic needles or a dropped stitch technique.

It looks like big needles, but doesn't look like dropped stitches to me.  If you're dead set on those exact scarves:  it looks like knit two (or possibly three) rows, purl one row, knit two (or three) rows, purl one row, etc...  Notice how they are folded over on themselves, so we cannot see what the "wrong" side looks like.

If the "eyelashes" on the yarn are really long (long enough to not tell what stitch you were using anyway) you could always use a V-stitch.  That way the only hard row is the first one, and you are dc-ing under the stitch instead of into the stitch for the rest of the piece. 
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Dryer Lint on: November 07, 2004 11:19:44 AM
I'm glad I'm not the only one intrigued by dryer lint. I've been saving it for a year but haven't figured out what to do with it. Someone please post if you make something. I don't thing I'll have time for that project for a while but I'll keep saving it until I do~!

Just out of curiosity...  what is the approximate volume of a year's worth of dryer lint?  Where do you keep it?  I think I could fill a shoebox every week, what with all the laundry that gets done at my house!
