1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Basmati rice bag photo story on: July 10, 2004 08:05:45 PM
Thanks for the hints!
Also, just wanted to mention that for anyone interested in this who can't find bags, I was at a market in Columbus, OH the other day (North Market?  It's in the Short North) and an Indian food vendor had stacks and stacks of burlap rice bags for sale for $1 each.  Seems like markets would be a good bet, and local Indian restaurants may be open to selling their old ones!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is there a place that has tutorials on how to make crochet flowers, stars, & on: June 13, 2004 07:55:20 PM

this is pretty good for flowers (although there are no pictures!)

and i was looking for a star pattern to work into a poncho/shawl a month or so ago, and had no luck.  eventually i found this star doily, which worked for me. 

good luck!

I made a poncho/shawl out of star doilies (intended for thin cotton, "make 300 for a tablecloth in your trousseau" kind of patterns), joining them together with simple rows of double crochet and then adding fringe.  I'll attach a photo later on, but it worked out really well. 
I think that you could do the same thing with the flowers, if putting them side by side turns out to look a little too busy.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Stereotypical Knitter on: June 10, 2004 08:25:28 PM
I've always found that my friends, boyfriend, guys in my college classes get a sort of glazed look at first, and then they get really interested and want to start touching whatever I'm working on.  Such tactile folk!

My boyfriend sometimes accuses me of having "old woman fingers" at 22  Tongue - I think the knitting strengthened them, so they do look kind of thin and sinewy.  It's only during playful tussels over cooking supplies that he realizes the power in these gnarly things...

About that washing dilemma - I forgot to prewash the basmati bag itself, and some of the red dye rubbed off.  Problem is, I'd already attached some denim handles, and now I'm terrified to do anything with it.  Any ideas??
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: All About Felting on: June 06, 2004 07:11:03 PM
First post ever!  But, my aunt just got my Knit One, Felt Too for a graduation gift a couple weeks ago.  Since I haven't started my job yet, I have a lot of project time and I have to say that it was really easy to understand and I've already done an IPOD cozy. 
It does have patterns, but I thought that the general information about swatching, the process, cleaning, etc. was great.  It gave me enough know-how in a hurry to start making up my own projects, which is what I tend to like, anyway!
