OK - Im tryin to get organized....

I bought a binder and sheet protectors and dividers.

If you were going to choose 8 categories in which to organize printed-off-the-internet patterns, what would they be?

I do realize that everyone "leans" toward different types of projects, for instance, I will NEVER NEVER NEVER knit a poncho.....but I will appreciate YOUR opinions!

So far, Im thinking:
Stitches
Sweaters
Dog Sweaters
Socks
Winter Gear
Babies
Home

and, I dont know what else

Oh woops, I "mistyped" one of my file names. Last one should have been "Knotty". The naughty file holds other "stuff". You forgot to mention the fun fur handcuffs Hilde.

OK, I have to come out of hiding to say that no one believes this was a mistake, but it sure makes for entertaining reading! :rofling: Ya'll crack me up.

I dont believe her either. But, HEY! Kudos to Beldie for needing a WHOLE FILE for "knotty"!

:shock: :angelgrin:

Did you mean "knotty" or "naughty" Kelly?

:devil:

KellyK

Im just going to assume from now on that those two words mean the same thing. At least they do to Beldie!

Isn't life funny...how you can look through an entire list and like a magnet, your eyes focus on the one word in the list that looks even remotely kinky.

:shock: Fun Fur handcuffs? GREAT idea! :thumbsup: Just wait till Hilde see's that! :XX:

And to think I never even though of doing those?!!! :?eyebrow:
I wouldn't be surprised to see a pattern for them within the week. LOL
That's a pattern that'll likely be out faster than Martha's Poncho!
(Sorry to remind you Kelly)

beldaaran, Uh, I stand corrected...within the day. Love how she phrases the instructions.

Hilde my dear, why you take pride in that, don't you? :)

These seems like an item where there should be a different texture/color, for every occasion. Imagine opening up a closet to find a few dozen of these beauties?! LOL

Kelly, I'm envisioning the "Get Knotty" theme....the smiley should be made of yarn and a few tangled yarn strands around the top of it's head.....with a very sly smile on it's face.

No pun intended I bet huh.

Beldie, sweetie, HOW can you POSSIBLY expect a Cheese Curd Eater to understand the intricate nature of SOUTHERN U.S. language??? THe plural of "Y'all" IS "All Y'all"!

**pats Kelly's head**

Kelly, sweetie, darling...I wouldn't have thought that Illinois would be considered southern US, but if you want to be like that, it's okay. I'll still pat your head.

I thought I cleared this up somewhere else, but I do not eat cheese curds. I am lactose intolerant and possibly allergic to milk. I am in the process of doing research to cut out all dairy from my family's diet.

:shock: OMG! :shock: Life without CHEESECAKE?!?!?! Now I had better pat YOUR head, Beldie!!!

Have I ever told you, Beldie, that I absolutely ADORE the Canadian sense of humor??? :inlove: MUAH!
(that's how you spell a BIG SMOOCH, no matter WHERE you are from!)

You make fun of Americans too? :shock: :?eyebrow: ;)

MUAH!
We spell "Big Smooch" like this: big smooch
:heart:

As for no cheesecake... :crying: Also means no pizza, no lasagna, no chip dip, no cheeseburger, no Haagen Daaz and no chocolate milk :crying: :verysad: :crying:

I need a hug now.

Beldie, we're soy drinkers in this house, by preference. Have you discovered Silk's Chocolate soy milk yet? I promise, you'll never miss chocolate milk again! It's way better IMHO. Soooo rich and delish, just like chocolate milk but more decadent. Also Soy Delicious "Cherry Nirvana" beats Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia to me. And you've got to try Rice Dream's chocolate-covered cookie ice cream sandwich thingies. YUMMM!!

I'm mildly lactose intollerant, which is how I got onto soy products. I can have any dairy except straight milk by the glass. DH isn't lactose intolerant, but when he tried my soy products, he got hooked on them. He's absolutely addicted to Chocolate Silk. He also drinks regular soy milk instead of milk, because he likes the taste and consistency better, as do I. Although some soy milks I'm not as fond of. We like Vitasoy's Original soy milk, for cereal and tea. Tastes the least soy-like of any plain soy beverage I know, and not too sweet. I love it.

Good luck on going dairy free!

I haven't even heard of those brands, or at least I haven't paid attention to them. I've had soy products before, so I do have some exposure. The only brand of chocolate soy milk that I remember is SoGood. At least I think that's what it's called. I picked up some soy cheese the other day: mozza and cheddar. They both seem to be okay.

If I'm allergic to milk, then I won't be able to have some of these products either though, which will be really devastating. So far my experiments seem to be working and my most persistent symptom is going away.

I blew it today by having some chocolate pudding and am already starting to pay for it. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day. I'm willing to make sacrifices for chocolate :drool:

Thank you for your support. It is really a hard transition to take out even "part" of a food group (ie. just avoiding lactose vs avoiding complete dairy). Especially since I love all my food groups too. The other part that bothers me a lot about this, are the effects my decisions will have on my son. I still have to do a lot of research before I make any permanent decisions about my diet and my family's diet.

That was a great hug. Thanks, I needed it :heart:

Beldie, the products I mentioned are all dairy free, I believe, except perhaps the chocolate in the Rice Dream sandwiches. The Silk chocolate milk is in the refridgerated section. Good luck! Here's another :heart: Big Hug :heart: .


Oops, I forgot to comment on the Knotty part of this thread.... Love the T-shirt idea! (As I mentioned in the T-shirt thread.) Not sure what the wording will be yet, but I'll definitely do some Knotty wear! ;) Let'sl brainstorm some more on the T-shirt thread.
