I think I will start calling my hubby "My boy piece"   Smiley and I am going to make him a stash monster.

There are some nice Celtic knot designs and design books out there I would think that would appeal to them.  I also have a book called "Elizabethan Crosstitch"  (I got it through a book club...) that has stuff in it that should be cool too.  Try a google or an Amazon search...
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Charity Knitting and Socks for me! on: December 20, 2006 05:16:21 AM
Nice job GoldfishGirl!  I really want to make socks myself. I am not a good enough knitter yet though.  Still PAINFULLY slow and awkward...  Smiley  Crochetted socks would be a little to thick I think...

That's so rad.  I'm really excited you made some.  My husband wasn't freaked out, but my kids (two girls) were.  They could have ignored them, but I posted them on the internet, and now they're just horrified.
 I'm glad everyone has shown such an interest because now I can be all like "told ya so".  They still think I'm crazy though.

Anyway, I can report from the front lines, after several months of use, that they are totally fantastic.

Those are awesome!  I <3 my cloth pads!  I got my mom hooked on them as well.  I've had the same set I made back in February and they're still  hanging tough.  I haven't had so much as the first "accident" while wearing them.  My husband even likes them.  Whenever I am sewing up some new ones (because I'm always finding a cute new flannel print I want LOL), he'll say, "those are so cool.  If I was a chick, I'd use them".  Hehe 

I'll have to sew up a couple of new ones and post pics, because I think cloth pads are awesome.  Not only are they good to your body, they're environmentally friendly as well.  There are some really great sites out there that list all of the health risks of mainstream, commercial disposable menstrual products as well as the devestating effects they have on the environment. 

Hooray for menstrual activism!

Had to chuckle at these posts...  Everyone in my house flipped when I started making cloth pads.  My teenage girls are so embarrassed by my hippie/cheap skate ways...  They dont' seem to realize that sometimes these old fashioned and homemade things are actually better in the first place.  My husband just thought it was gross.  Roll Eyes

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Are ponchos out? on: December 19, 2006 09:03:54 AM
Here in Buffalo it doesn't matter if ponchos are out or not.  We won't catch up to fashion for a couple of years.  Hell I still see people with "joe dirt" mullets all the time...  Wink

You have been one busy girl Red Cat!  I love your stuff...

Awesome!  I bet you can make gloves, legwarmers, hats and just about anything else you can think of this way....  HMMMMMMM  me thinks a trip to AMVETS is in order...  Smiley  I have the afternoon off tomorrow (half day of school for my son...) and I know what I'm going to do!
