1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Storing DDR pads? on: August 16, 2006 12:22:01 PM
How do you guys store your soft DDR pads? They don't seem to fold down very well. I've got two of them and I'm about to move into a small apartment.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Really short sweater? on: February 10, 2006 05:13:31 PM
I was looking for a pattern for one of those really short sweaters (more like sleeves and a collar?) BUT I don't know what they're called.
Anyone have any ideas on for what I should search? It's like a long-sleeved sweater that ends above the breasts. I think there's one in that Verizon commercial where the girl is trying on clothes...
I'll probably end up making my own sweater... but I always like looking at other patterns first =p
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted shorts question... on: July 01, 2005 05:24:17 PM
My next project is going to motivate me to work out more this summer: knitted shorts! For anyone who has the book Fruits, I'm modeling the shorts after those worn by Emi near the back of the book. I was just curious as to what you guys think would be best to do with the waistline. I think I'd like to do something with elastic, but I'm not sure what. I've never done anything with elastic in my knitting and would appreciate any comments/suggestions.
4  Texas / Texas: North Central / Where can I get a punky haircut in Dallas? on: June 22, 2005 11:00:41 AM
Any ideas? I see so many Craftster girls with cool haircuts, so I thought maybe I'd ask here.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Zelda top <3 on: June 09, 2005 01:23:45 PM
2 hours of chart drawing/planning + 3 weeks of knitting = 1 way cool (I think) short-sleeved sweater.
The halfway point:
Here's a pic of the completed top (this time the colors are a little off):
I'm planning to send some pictures to Nintendo Power Magazine too. =p
In case anyone was wondering what the red stuff at the top of the design is, it's Japanese and says "Legend of Zelda" in the SNES title screen font.
Okay, that's all for now. <3

UPDATE: New and better pics
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Vegetarians & nutrtion buffs: L-carnitine? on: April 21, 2005 03:47:24 PM
My friend suggested taking L-carnitine supplements after learning about it in his biochemistry class. Apparently it's found almost only in meat (which I've never eaten). I did a little research and found that it's linked to improved fat-burning (sounds good, especially since I'm in the middle of a weight loss plan) and improved mood and energy (couldn't hurt). Has anyone here taken L-carnitine or know anything about it?

(P.S. Lost 6 lbs in 2 weeks very safely and happily and still going strong... n_n*)
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Black-on-black outline? on: April 17, 2005 03:46:53 PM
If I'm doing a cross-stitch on black cloth and the pattern has a black outline, should I:
1. Do the outline in black floss?
2. Leave it blank?
3. Make an extra border outside of the black border?

All help greatly appreciated! <3 <3 <3
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitting frenzy gallery (sweater, hat, scarf) on: February 20, 2005 11:43:01 PM
So... I've been busy!
I recently finished my first sweater. The pattern is for the most part from the pattern generating software KnitWare. I'm quite pleased with the way it fits, despite its boxy appearance in the picture.

Then, when the boyfriend went out of town for the weekend, the WTF hat and sari recycled silk scarf emerged from my boredom...
I'm thinking about adding some trinkets (like plastic zoo animals) to the scarf. The texture is so much fun Smiley.

Okay, that's all. =p
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Too pixelated? on: February 05, 2005 11:51:01 PM
Hey all. Just finished my first sweater about 1/2 an hour ago (!!!) and am already plotting out my next knitting move. I'm thinking about doing a messenger bag with a Super Nintendo-inspired intarsia design I created last summer. Before I start, is there any way I can kind of gauge how pixelated the design will be? I don't have it with me, but I wanna say it's about 40 x 65 stitches. I'm hoping that with size 5 needles and a sport weight yarn, I can do the design without it being 5 feet wide. So... just wondering if you have any suggestions or advice for me. Will this just be pixelated beyond belief? Will I have to stand 20 feet back for the image to emerge?
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift ideas for scientists on: November 16, 2004 04:44:06 PM
Most of my friends (guys and gals) are studying science (biochemistry, chemistry, genetics, or biology). I want to make them Christmas gifts this year that have some science-y feel to tem. Any ideas? (I can sew, knit, crochet, and cross stitch.) Time is somewhat of a limiting factor, so small projects are best. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
