1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / I lost my sole! on: April 11, 2008 01:43:43 PM
So last week I went to the thrift store, bought pair of navy flats (looked to be from the mid to late 90s) with the tags still on and got super-excited to paint them. 

I decided to wear them out for the night to make sure they were comfortable before I put hours of work into them only to find they rubbed my heel wrong or something like that, but then, the disaster happened.  Walking home in the rain, the sole of the shoe FELL COMPLETELY OFF. 

Anyone know of anything I could use to get it back on there?  And what kind of shoe dissolves in the rain???
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't think I used the right cast on for this one... on: March 20, 2008 03:51:18 PM
So I finally got around to taking the plunge into entrelac with knitty's danica a few days ago and i really love it, but i just noticed today that my cast on row is good inch or two smaller than the scarf, just due to the tightness of the stitches.  I've only ever done a long tail cast on (its the only one i know), and I've never had a problem with it being too tight for a project, so i'm not sure if I just cast on too tight or if danica is just a big wide knit.  either way, i'm not sure if i want to frog it and try again (it wouldn't be the worst idea, but I've gotten so much done!) or just to live with the wonky edge.  If i frog it, any suggestions on which method of cast on I should try to get a good, stretchy edge?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cord length on circular needles? on: February 24, 2008 04:34:05 PM
So, this just occurred to me the other day, and its driving me nuts thinking about it.  I bought a pair of circular needles that are supposed to be 13", but the cord looks a LOT shorter than pictures of the needles that are pictured in the pattern I'm working.  So when circulars say 13" or whatever the length is, does that mean the cord is that long, or the cord and needles attached are that long combined?  and is this regulated in any way or do needle makers just get to do whatever they want?  I could measure my needles, but can't measure any in pictures on the internet, and I was looking at some in the store after I noticed this, and even within the same brand they looked like they were different lengths.  The cord I bought for interchangeable needles looked like it was 16" itself, but the one-piece 16" needles looked like it was only that long if the needles were included in the length.  its not too much of a big deal, as it doesn't affect my hat at all, but i want to know cause this is driving me crazy.  how can there be so little order in the circular needle world?
