Knitting! (and other needle arts...)

Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

Sorry to hear that, Betsie. I just got my map of the world afghan pattern, and I'm keeping it!

Not sure when I'll actually do it, though.

Heheh, I know. I decided to just let it be. We all make mistakes, and sometimes it's just easier to let be.

Now I really get annoyed when say, my electric company can't spell my name correctly when I spell it correctly in every instance I send them my name. Bah!

I suspect this might be interesting (and useful) to some of us...

April is a month-long "Use What You Have" challenge from Simple Sparrow. She's committed to no purchases of new supplies - she's going to knit/sew/craft with what she already has.

http://simplesparrow.typepad.com/simple_sparrow/2006/03/use_what_i_have.html

Good idea! I'm looking forward to using up some of the paints, canvases and other art supplies I've tucked away. And to finally making some of the spring-summer clothes I bought fabric for last year!

There's even a Flickr group to showcase the things you've made with your stash: http://www.flickr.com/groups/usewhatyouhave/

Oh, way cool, Kristen. But what to make? Hm. Planning is half the fun.

I can't remember if this one has been posted here yet or not....

I think of this site as the anti-knitty.com website: http://www.theanticraft.com/index.htm

I tried crocheting once in school for a project.

I decided that after the plant in my hanging planter leaned about 45-degrees to one-side I was better off to not try again.
