31  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [SOLVED] "Back to Top" button? on: September 22, 2007 03:40:20 AM
Could you put a "back to top of page" button at the bottom of Hottest New Topics so we don't have to scroll all the way back up again?   Smiley
32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Scrappy Square Quilt on: September 20, 2007 08:43:56 AM
I totally agree with the Gustav Klimt comparisons!  Your quilt is beautiful - a work of art, and certainly not a monstrosity!  I'm hitting the This Rocks button too!
33  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Am I doing something wrong? on: September 20, 2007 08:25:18 AM
I think I know what you mean - I get the same problem with the chain twisting so suddenly the "butt" and "V" switch sides and aren't where they should be when you try to do the first row of stitches...  I don't know why it happens either, but the only way I've found that helps prevent it is to hold the chain just made between the thumb and middle finger of my left hand as I make the next chain.  This seems to help keep the chain flat and stop it from twisting.  Most of the time anyway!

I've also noticed that sometimes if you're using a large hook the chain looks more like overlapping loops (which I guess is what it actually is!) than V's which makes it really hard to see what's what - I just tend to stick my hook in and hope for the best when that happens!
34  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Not staring at your knitting on: September 17, 2007 07:57:52 AM
Although I make myself dizzy sometimes if I'm knitting fast (and looking at it)...lol. Tongue

Ha ha!  I thought it was just me... I don't knit much, but I crochet, and sometimes it makes my head spin if I'm really going for it!  I can't really crochet without looking either - I can always spot the bits I've done with the TV on, cos there are more mistakes...  I used to know someone who could read a book and knit at the same time, which I thought was pretty amazing (her knitting was super fast and neat, too!).

I sometimes use a soda bread recipe that lists buttermilk amongst the ingredients: never having come across it in the supermarket I substituted half and half natural yogurt and milk, and it seems to work out fine.  Not sure if it will work for your cake recipe though...
36  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the worst mistake you've done while crocheting? on: September 04, 2007 12:51:39 PM
Making a whole sweater when I knew my gauge was off - I thought it would be OK but it came out way too small so I had to frog it and start again.  Embarrassed  I learnt my lesson though!

That is lovely - it looks like a stained glass window!
38  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: My wonky lion of shaaame on: September 01, 2007 03:38:52 AM
Awww!  It's the jolly (not!) green lion!  More disgruntled I think - I had to laugh when I saw him - but in a good way.  I think he's great - I love the mane/hair.  Cheesy
39  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: am i a too loose hooker? on: August 30, 2007 10:02:33 AM
I have to agree with everyone else.  I think it looks great.

and I too chuckle when someone refers to us crocheters as hookers Grin

In the rugby playing world (rugby is the no.1 sport where I live!) "hooker" has yet another meaning that also makes me smile - he's a big beefy bloke who goes in the middle of the front row in a scrum.  Hee hee! 


PS - the granny hexagon is fine!
40  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Granny's rivets? on: August 29, 2007 12:58:14 PM
Oooh! This was my first ever post on Craftster!  I'd almost forgotten about it... I gave up on the rivets in the end, and the bag looks fine without them.  I did try a few leather crafting websites, but still couldn't really find what I wanted in the UK (without having to buy hundreds of them!).  Isn't it fun how old posts pop back up to the top of the pile sometimes?
