21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I've just bought a knitting machine ... on: April 07, 2008 02:41:01 PM
I am feeling very lucky indeed today  Grin

DBF - I've tried all afternoon and evening to get that link to work with no luck - the main Brother site in Canada doesn't have any listings for knitting machine manuals. Have you managed to get it work before now? Using your link I get a list of pdf files but it refuses to actually download anything  Huh

I was hoping that it would be similar to my Knitmaster, but going by pictures from eBay, it's laid out differently. I foresee many long evenings ahead...  Grin

How's the blanket coming along? I'm rubbish - I've not even opened the lid on mine in a good six months  Roll Eyes

I need to get going again tho - a friend called this morning to say that she'd got me TWO more machines from a neighbour who's moving house  Shocked Grin  They're both Brothers - a KX360 and a KH860. I think the 360 is a very old model - I can't find anything about it on the web. But the 860 looks like it should be good!

The only thing is, neither of them has the manual...  Roll Eyes Shocked Undecided
23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Scented wardrobe sachets? on: April 07, 2008 08:48:13 AM
I'm wanting to make little sachets to hang in wardrobes, etc., to make clothing smell nice  Smiley I've done a search on Craftster but haven't found anything exactly like the things I'm thinking of.

Making the little stuffie itself is the simple bit, it's the scenting (and keeping it scented) that's the problem. The first thing I thought of was essential oils, but I'm concerned that they'll a)smell too strong to start with; b)the scent will wear off quite quickly, and c)the oil will mark the fabric.

I know I could use lavender flowers for a more subtle scent, but I'm not overly keen on lavender - I'd like to have a wider choice, to be honest.

Any suggestions (or pokes in the direction of relevent threads) would be most appreciated  Smiley

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mighty Boosh cushion on: March 29, 2008 03:22:01 PM
I made this for my friend's birthday - we're both HUGE Boosh fans, so I knew she'd love it Cheesy

Sorry it's a small pic, I'm not too great with my camera yet  Roll Eyes


edited to add - I wasn't sure where to put this, cos it seemed to fit in several places! Sorry if I got it wrong  Roll Eyes

I sometimes use a washed and covered pebble inside a toy to weight it down  Smiley
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Do patterns eventually come out of copyright? on: February 09, 2008 08:45:10 AM
I've got some old toy-making patterns that I would like to adapt and use. I only want to use them as a basis for my own ideas, I'm not THAT lazy  Wink, but I wondered if it's okay? I know that some copyrights lapse after a certain number of years, but I'm not sure if the same thing applies to patterns.

If anyone knows the legalities, I would be most grateful  Smiley

One book was published in 1963 (but reprinted in 1985) and the other was published in the 40's and hasn't been reprinted.

29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting in Public: Where you do it on: January 24, 2008 04:33:05 PM
I had to sit through a toddler's birthday party last week (my 3yr old was a guest and couldn't be left there alone). Pretty sensibly, I thought, I'd taken my knitting bag to keep me occupied.
It took a while for me to realise that I was the only person that noone was talking to (I kept looking up, it's not like I had my head buried in concentration).
Ok, so I looked a bit out of place anyway - most of the other mums were the footballer's wife type and there was I in  a sundress, leggings and knee boots, with a tartan coat over the top, all topped off with a black mohican  Grin

But from the looks I got (not unkind, just bemused), it was definitely the knitting that was making me look strange in their eyes  Roll Eyes

Ho hum, I wouldn't want to be friends with them anyway... Grin
