Melanie,

I hear you, they did used to have such a nice craft dept., it was really the only reason I would go there. Now I have no reason to go at all.

We are still lamenting the loss of the smaller yarn shops. Cry

Sherry,

They're so fascinating!  Kiss  Would love to see what you come up with for crocheting!  Kiss

You're definitely limited to colors on hand, so I understand why you wouldn't be able to reproduce them as you'd probably like.  Undecided  But if anyone can do something eye-catching and lizard-eye-ish, you can!  Kiss

You know, just a thought...if you're willing to go to a lot of effort, you could double some embroidery floss...just thinking that's 200-something(?) colors to choose from.  You might be able to do some marbling by combining two strands of blue, then two strands of a different blue, etc.  At least with crochet, embroidery floss works great, because you can catch the stitches a lot easier...sigh, with knitting, not so much!  Undecided

GMTA again!  Kiss  I agree about fringe 100%  It's different if it's a material that will hold up...for instance, I used to have the cutest fringed jacket, where the fringes were flattish and cut out of fabric, not made of yarn.  So those held up.

I also had a couple of shirts with added fringe, made with what I now know to be some kind of rayon chain fiber...looped.  So the ends weren't on the actual "ends," and thus, they didn't fray.  (I also had one with the same rayon chain fiber, but those weren't looped, they were cut, and thus, they frayed like crazy.  Frown  I had plans to ultimately knit or crochet some new, longer, and looped fringe out of the rayon chain fiber...but it never happened (never could get the fiber) and now I count the shirt as pretty much stolen (had it in storage), which means someone else got it, and maybe they pulled the fringe off completely, bought some new fringe from a store, wore it as is, or threw out the whole thing.  Not that I really care, since that wasn't anything I had the chance to ultimately do with it.  Cry

I love that diagonal pattern, and it's so fast and so much fun for making dishcloths!  Kiss  I'm thinking I'll make at least one for our "misfit collection," even though it won't be an actual misfit, more an on-purpose thing, because I enjoy making that pattern so much.  Kiss  BTW, I have a crocheted blanket (have no idea who made it...not me!) in that same pattern, so it's kind of fun that I'm now making something in that same pattern!  it was made out of two strands of yarn, perhaps Simply Soft, because it feels very soft to me.  Smile

I'm using an H hook for all of the patterns now (12 down, 4 to go, then all of those ends!), so I put the F hook away in my case before losing it, sigh.  Undecided

Thank you...believe it or not, I'm not sore.  I'm hoping that means I won't be, but somehow, with the way my shoulder was hurting from scraping up some of that ice at the time, I won't be surprised if I feel sore over the next 24 hours.  Frown  My shoulder kept aching and I had to keep stopping to wait for the pain to go away.  Cry  Ugh, remind me again what purpose that offensive white four-letter-word crap serves?  Yell

Sherry,

Ok.  I'll take a look and see if this would be something easy and fast to implement.  Please give me a couple days and I'll get back to you.

Hi!

Yes, the avatar is a picture of my baby boy, Shadow (after whom I named myself).  He's 8 years old.  He doesn't bother the guinea pigs at all and would play with them if I let him.  I have a baby guinea pig who turned three weeks old on Monday.  She was born in my house.  Cutest thing ever!  Sometimes Shadow will sit on top of a (guinea pig) cage and paw at one of them but they aren't afraid, and he never brings out his claws.  He pretty much ignores the hamsters except for one who is a very small (teeny tiny) variety called a Roborovski.  I've heard they smell very much like mice to a cat.  But she's safe from him in a very secure cage.  He's a good cat.

Please forgive us, other beaders, for talking about our pets so much!

Seed beading is such a relaxing thing for me to do!  I test patterns for a designer sometimes and she says I'm a great help to her.  Beaded beads are something I love to make.  I also have a thing for long dangly earrings.  Seed beads mixed with pearls and/or crystals are my favorite things to play with, and I do very well with geometric shapes.

How do we get our fellow stitchboard beaders to chat with us?  I like this forum and think the site is very well done.  I think there's potential for a lot of good things here.  :-)

I'm currently working on some doll clothes to send to doll-collecting friends of mine. I'm also trying to work down this pile of stuff that's been cut out, waiting for me to get back to it. Yeah, it's all doll clothes, LOL!
