1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My first wreath! (3 pics) on: November 23, 2007 08:14:42 PM
I just made a wreath for my door for this Yule-tide season! I've never made it before and was really excited to see how easy it was and how well it turned out. Let me know what you guys think! Smiley

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stockingette scarf problems on: October 30, 2007 07:36:55 AM
(Knitting Knewbie alert!)

I'm making a harry potter replica scarf for a swap. This will be my first completed knitting project (I started another scarf months ago but never finished, my cat frogged it for me  Angry  ) It's a basic scarf with a stockingette stitch (at least I think that's what it is called, I'm knitting a row then purling a row). So, my question is this:

My sides are curling towards the purl side, how do I make them not do this? Do I just have to edge the scarf or should I change how I'm knitting. 
Also, my edges are super loose looking (i'll post photos later) is there anything I can do for that?

I'm a 1/4-1/3 of the way done so I'd really really like to not have to take it apart... since I knit so slowly.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Make your eyes bleed bright (Hat and fingerless gloves) on: October 23, 2007 08:44:17 AM
It's about time I start posting the things I've made! Here is a matching Hat and Fingerless gloves made out of make-your-eyes-bleed-bright yarn! When I bought it my boyfriend looked at me and said "You're using your powers for evil". I made the set just before the party I wore them too, it was kind of cold out that day.

Oh, also, Sorry for the pictures, My camera is being repaired at the moment so I had to rely on pictures that some one else took of me.


The hat is double stranded worsted wait yarn, single crochet at the top (for extra warmth) and double crocheted at the bottom (for stretchyness). The pattern for the fingerless gloves can be found here: http://users.fmg.uva.nl/skats/crochet/handsch.htm (I skipped part with the hdc ch rows)

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / photo shower curtain? on: October 10, 2007 12:18:53 PM
My boyfriend and I are in desperate need of a new shower curtain, and being the little crafter I am I've decided on an LOL Cats themed curtain (for those of you who don't know what LOLcats are, this website has them aplentyhttp://icanhascheezburger.com/)

Basically my question is how to make said shower curtain? I had an idea of buying to clear ones and sort of making a shower curtain sandwhich with the pictures but i don't think that would look very nice, my current preferred plot is to glue them to a shower curtain and then use some sort of clear sealent to water proof them...but what?

Any ideas or insights would be immensely helpfull.
5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Sorority girls love crafts! on: September 28, 2007 09:02:30 AM
Hello fellow crafters! I'm the vice president of community service for my community service based nonalcoholic sorority (it's a mouthfull I know!) Every semester we do great big crochet projects, this year we're crocheting simple caps for the local homeless shelter and crocheting bandages for leprosy. My question for all of you creative folks is if anyone has recommendations for some projects I could suggest to my sisters that dont include crocheting? Thanks Guys
