Crochet Tutorial: Granny Squares | I fell in love to Granny Square!!! Where did the name come from? Must be related from a granny that designed and made it, I searched but can’t find, even wikipedia didn’t tell…. Granny Square is a kind of patch-working in crochet where we can literally put any color combinations we like to make it a square (or a triangle or any symmetrical shapes you can design) and patch them together to form a project. I love the flexibility it provides in design in terms of motifs, color combinations, shapes and sizes…. There are many types of granny square, from plain basic square to sunburst flower square to emboss 3D flower square… you name it….the variations are unlimited. Anyway, the one I am showing how to crochet is another variation, where I crochet double crochet [dc] in between to reduce the gap in between each dc cluster. {Get full details on next page.} Pages: 1 2 Get all updates via email: Highlights from Our Partners

Colle maison pour serviettage... - le petit univers de lypha Vendredi 9 avril 2010 5 09 /04 /Avr /2010 06:06 Recette pour faire de la colle maison écologique: Non seulement, la colle ou vernis-colle achetée dans les commerces est hors de prix mais qui plus est, plus toxique qu'elle, tu meurs ! Et de plus, un besoin de coller peut prendre à n'importe quelle heure du jour et de la nuit et il serait triste de ne pas pouvoir concrétiser ses idées lorsqu'elles viennent vous chatouiller le cerveau. Personnellement, j'ai horreur de cela ! Ne pas pouvoir créer par manque de matériel ! Et puis, avec cette colle, on peut tout faire et aucun risque pour les enfants. Ils peuvent même la manger si cela les enchante mais, un bon gros gâteau sera quand même plus sympathique. Alors pour faire un pot de colle comme celui dessous, rien de plus simple . Il faut mettre 3 à 4 cuillères à soupe de farine dans une casserole puis diluer avec un peu d'eau au début. Puis, on chauffe doucement. Lorsque le tout commence à s'épaissir, on rajoute de l'eau tout en "touillant" bien.

How to Recycle Yarn from a Thrift-Store Sweater October 4th, 2008 Email 62 users recommend When you're done ripping, you'll have hundreds of yards of brand-new yarn for knitting! Lee Meredith This example sweater is bulky yarn, so it'll be easier to see what's going on. Sometimes the edge will be machine sewn closed, so you'll have to make more cuts to get it started. Photo: Lee Meredith The most classic handmade holiday gift has to be the knit sweater, which is also one of the most ambitious. You'll Need: Thrifted sweater to unravel (details below)Seam ripperScissors (embroidery scissors can be helpful)Dish soap or shampooThese will help if you have them: niddy noddy, swift, ball winder Your first step is to find a sweater (or two) to unravel. Yardage: If you find a fantastic yarn but are not sure it'll be enough to complete your gift, I'd recommend finding another yarn of the same weight that could be added as a stripe in your sweater if needed. Seams: To get usable yarn, your sweater must have sewn or crocheted seams, not serged!

How To Add Beads To A Project With A Homemade Beading Needle | KnitLove You can buy beading needles at any craft store, but I like my own homemade version the best. I strip the paper off a twist tie, then I bend it just off center, so one side is a smidge longer than the other, to make it easy to slip on to a loop. It should look like a skinny V. Slip a knit, or purl loop, into the “V” and press the top ends together to slide a bead down the needle and onto a loop. Here is how I use it (from Glimmer Beret): 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.)

15 Tips for Low Light Landscape Photography A Post By: Natalie Denton (nee Johnson) Capturing scenes in low light remains one of the most challenging aspects of photography, yet the results when executed well can be truly captivating. Whether it’s an energetic cityscape or ethereal seascape the possibilities are endless. Here are a few essentials points to consider before you begin. It’s a good idea to formulate a plan of attack before the twilight hour so scout out a position while there is another available light and grab a few set up shots to make sure your scene works and will be free from distracting objects. Image by V31S70 So start by setting your camera upon a solid tripod and switching the unit to manual or shutter priority if you are wish. Image by kern.justin Another key piece of kit is a remote control shutter release like Nikon’s ML-L3 wireless control which works with Nikon’s enthusiast range of cameras; D40, D40x, D60, D80 and D90.
