and I'm not driving in the snow, even if I could get out of my neighborhood. :vent:
Time for chopsticks & a pencil sharpener?
lol - would consider that if I had chopsticks!
What?! You don't have a section in your silverware drawer full of those break apart wooden chopsticks they have at Chinese buffets? I don't know how you live like that
well.. I've got two kids that can't eat chinese because of their allergies... and they've never sent chopsticks for delivery!
Do you have any dowels in your craft stuff? Bamboo skewers? Orange sticks in your manacure set?
A pencil you can cut the eraser end off of and sharpen both ends?
You can take dowels and drill holes in the ends of them and use weed eater line to make circs, if that's helpful in any way.
the pencil idea I could do! I think I might actually be able to get out of my houe this morning, and I'm going to try.
I'm so pathetic though.. my skewers are metal, I don't have a manicure set and haven't replaced any of the dowels from my craft stuff since our move. That's a really cool idea about the circs - I'll have to remember that.
i ate them. I was convinced at the time it would help my arm recover. <nods>:heart smirk: (whispers~ it didn't work)
lol - I got some new ones, Jess.. so you're forgiven.
Happen to have an easy pattern for a children's hat that you could share with me? I've done infant ones.. but Lindsey, Josh and Leila all want some.
not to hand, but there's always knitting pattern central . . . which is an evil time-suck, but yk I was *that* kind of friend already
OH I LOVE this idea! I've been wanting to try Mobius knitting but haven't wanted to invest in a circular JIC I don't enjoy it. This however, I can make!
:lol: I miss you, Jess.:heart smirk:
I can see this on the baby in a smooth woolen yarn with a lil edge of something fancy and fuzzy, funfur, or something.
But then I remember winds, and think cabley-lacey open hats = not good for this weather, and then i scroll through and see the pdf for Lyra's Cap (you've seen the golden compass no?) and know that would look really cute on a few kids you know and know it's super easy to make, and then wonder about the forehead coverage the designer is talking about.
So I keep scrolling, and I keep thinking how adorable your oldest would look in a stocking cap (aka santa hat) and how "my boy" would be just so yummy and innocent (*snicker*) in a hat with earlaps. The boy needses the earlaps, it would match his hair in the cutest way (jmo of course!)
the one on Knitting Pattern Central (go to the pattern list then hats then scroll down) that says *new* in front of something santa hat is the one I'm seeing your oldest in, either in a pale ballerina pink or a pale barely there blue, paler than baby blue kwim?
Now that you're lost into the evil that is KPC lmk when you need out, I'll give you a call and you'll have to leave the computer to go to the phone
oh my heck. The computer is next to the phone, that won't help me.
Lindsey picked a pink and brown yarn - her favorite colors and oh dear.. *sigh* did I mention I'm a very new beginning knitter?
that place is dangerous.
I want one of these for each child - but it's above my abilities.
The Complete Fabrication: Trav's Balaclava
I'm pretty sure you could do that hat. You can do ribbing, right?
ummm..... I can knit. I can supposedly perl. At least, I think that's what I'm doing when I'm doing it - lol.
Ribbing.. who the heck knows.
hrm, i need to find that card with that appt on it.
after that appt assuming they won't cut me open (matt says my arm use is degrading) then we can either meet between us or work out something where we come to see your house or whatever, and I'm teaching you.
Even if I'm casted it will not be hard, I swear. :heart:
wanna help me pick out a medic bracelet?
find your apt card I want to see you!
I just did the plain bracelets the first time.. green for Josh, turquoise for Leila. I've been procrasting ordering again, I'm not sure what we're getting now. I want to do the beaded for Leila so it's girlie, but I need to measure her, she might be too little still. Her bracelet that she's wearing still fits fine and she's had it on since she was 9 months old.
