    Re: Sewing

    *waves* I am. Although it takes me forever to finish anything. I'm currently working on a blouse from the Burda magazine. I've done the really boring tracing out of the pattern and adding seam allowances. Now I'm cutting out the peices from some cheap old sheeting in order to make a muslin as I want it to fit really well.

    I'm on BurdaStyle under my old screen name of Impqueen.

    I sew...but mainly stuff for the kiddies or historical stuff.

    And quilting...
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I think this thread needs pictures... I'll find a couple of things I'm most proud of when I get home from work this evening.

    Knitting & Crochet (and other yarn-y crafts)

    So what are you knitting? What's the piece of knitting you're most proud of? Got a Ravelry account you want to be friends on? Got any funny knitting stories?

    My Rav name is my real life name, or a nickname version of it so I don't post it in open forum, PM me if you want to be friended

    I'm knitting a cabled hat (my first cables - yay) for a very nice man not so far from here and also a tank top.

    Re: Knitting

    I do knitting too, but not anything big. Just woolen stockings, mittens, beanies and such. I'm too impatient to do anything which isn't ready in one or two evenings, 'coz I get bored with the pattern/color etc. :P But knitting at the lectures is fun.

    [/quote]That's where chunky yarn comes in. ;D

    The tank top I'm knitting is in DK and stockinette st and I'm soooo bored with it. It's good car journey knitting though.
