1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Tiny IKEA animals on: March 14, 2007 04:11:22 PM
hehe... I bought a mess of these for my daughter.  She loves them cause they are finger puppets!  If you have any crafting for kids, you could make a blanket with a couple attached to the sides?  Or even stitch it down to a hat or at the bottom of a sweater for those kids really into animals.  Actually come to think of it, I think I remember the care says not to immerse in water.... meh... mobile!  good luck.   Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: burning my knitting stuff tomorrow on: February 15, 2007 01:22:44 PM
eek!  on behalf of you knitting paraphenalia, please have pity. =D   I tried to learn how to knit while I was pregnant.  Had to put it down and go back to it after the preg hormones stopped wreaking havoc with my entire person.  lol

I read thru all the msgs, maybe I missed it, but which cast-on are you trying to learn?

I also had another thought.  To get you past the cast on and right to knitting, you could try a crochet chain provisional cast on and then just bind off later on.   hehe.. of course this assumes you know how to make a chain, so just in case you don't.  Make a slip knot, put it on your crochet hook, and chain the # of stitches you need to cast on (wrap yarn under and towards you and pull a new loop through the one on the hook).  Take your chain and turn it so the "bumps" are facing you and pick up the bumps with your knitting needle and knit.  Later on you can go back, pull out the chain and bind off that edge.   

Good luck with this, I HATED casting on for the longest time and simply had to do it until I dreamed about casting on for it to click.  hth!

*raises hand*

Hi... I'm Jena... and I'm a pro-craft-inator.  I've been one for.... well...  as long as I can remember. 

Man that felt good!   Cheesy

Not that I'm happy anyone else suffers from this, but I am SO happy I'm not alone.  I see all these amazing FO's and think... WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME! I want to do.  I either have or can get the supplies.  I have the ideas.  I dream about how to do it and little tweaks.  And then if I actually start (which I'm guessing is a fairly low success rate in and of itself) it either takes me forever to finish or it lays in some state of WIP with my guilt over it keeping me hostage in inactivity. *sigh*

If ya figure it out, lemme know!
