2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / repainting garden statue on: September 16, 2009 01:51:16 PM
My grandmother recently acquired an old statue of snow white for our backyard. The paint it really chipped and I want to repaint it. My only problem is that I'm not quite sure what kind of paint to use. I have tons of acrylic paint but i don't know how that will stay on stone. Any suggestions?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / intarsia knitting help por favor? on: October 22, 2008 10:04:35 AM
I've never done intarsia knitting before and i am up to the challenge. I have a few quick questions for starting though. I want to make a small black dice bag with some kind of symbol on it. First I swear i stumbled upon a computer program where you can make a intarsia chart and print it out somewhere in the deep depths of the internets. Also, does anyone have any suggestions for making charts or whatever. Any type of suggestions for intarsia knitting will help. Thanks.

This is so true. I remember once watching "I Love Lucy" and it was an episode when Lucy was really pregnant with Little Ricky. In this episode Lucy is knitting a sweater for the baby and ethel commenting on it. I don't ever remember and other time the Lucy knit on the entire series but when she was PREGNANT. I'm images like this in the media totally reinforce the "knitting for babies" ideal.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Quick question about gauge on: October 02, 2008 02:01:15 PM
When a gauge on a pattern says 25 sts/36 rows = 4 inches. Does mean you should have 25 sts in the entire 4 inches? OR does that mean you should have 25 sts per inch. I've been making swatches for the Kitty Hat from Debby Stoller's Stitch 'n Bitch book but I can't get the right gauge and it's really frustrating me. I think it might also be a crappy yarn I've been working with. Could the fact that I knitting kind of tight effect the fact that I can't get the right gauge. Please help before I pull my hair out. grrrrr  Angry Thanks!

I work at a small "mom & pop" pharmacy as a cashier and it can get really slow, especially at night. If I'm working on a knitting project that isn't too complicated, I'll bring my needles and yarn with me to work. Most people ask what I'm making and one gentlemen said it was nice to see someone taking the time to make something hand made. The strangest comment I've gotten was just a few days ago. We often get a lot of senior citizens in the store. One older man who is a regular customer walks up to the counter, sees me knitting and says "Women usually knit when they're having a baby!" and with a bit of shock in his voice. I'm 23 years old but look very young. I put my knitting needles down and told him I was actually knitting the hat I'd been working on for myself. He replied with an "Oh" and I proceeded to charger for his merchandise. This was the first time I'd ever heard of anyone thinking women only knit when they're pregnant. Old men have the strangest views of women sometimes.

I've got two ACO costumes.
This one was for a Midnight show my friend and I decided to dress up for about 2 or 3 years ago
not exactly feminine  Roll Eyes

Nice touch with the moloko droogs.

I've done an Alex costume is high school but most people had no clue what i actually was.
