(i cannot explain it) i was looking for information on how to make straw hats. i found a most wonderful site indeed. it has a LOT of links to making hats (not all straw) but it's got a lot of links to OTHER sewing stuff as well. check it out!

obviously i have a ways to go. there are still thread ends everywhere! i'm not going to trim them until i get to the very end. i am going to use copper findings. i think i'll use cone ends and a hook clasp. i'm going to be making a few more strands. when it's done (and all cleaned up nicely) i'll post the finished piece. using copper and brass and gold and brown beads with a few blue ones (want to go for that rusted patina look) here and there. i have some copper pieces i ordered on etsy i'll be using. i don't have them yet (she makes them to order so i may not even get them this week).
i like making noises as i walk. i always have something on that does indeed make noise. jewelry usually. as a rule, i never sneak up on anyone. you can ALWAYS (well almost always let's say) hear me coming
i'm going to start with one i just purchased YESTERDAY (you can play online free here) or buy it for $.99 (well worth it) here at the app store
it's simple or so you THINK............
you start with four elements and build on from there. the screen shots are from the online game. the iphone app has 196 elements and 21 groups.I believe it was just updated (so far i have 115 out of 196 and 15 out of 21). you just start clicking and combining (or for the phone dragging/tapping and combining)
well i love it. it's addictive. there ARE hints but i try not to use them. the more elements you have, the harder it gets. and yes, there is an underlying element (get it) of humor as well.
and vickie howell shows you how to do it the continental way (i started the english way, and now i use both ways. it comes in WICKED HANDY when you're knitting with two colors at once. ez taught me that. if you don't know who ez is, start learning to knit. you'll find out soon enough. i promise you).
any wayyyyyyyyyyyy at the craftzine link above, there are even MORE knitting instructions. PICK UP YOUR STICKS AND GET GOING!
