>>When you are typing a message...there is a smiley face icon up there inbetween the A and the paperclip. Just click the down-arrow by the smiley face, and different smileys will appear. Click the one you like and it will insert itself in the place your cursor was last blinking. You know, the blinking line that designates where your next letter will type into.>>
Looky, I found them how cool is that. Thank you so much. I had to quote the msg before I could see them. Well uh dih on me.
>>Then also, see the little smiley star over to the right of the GOOGLE G in a box? If you click the little smiley star, I think that will help you select your favorite 24 smileys...the ones you think you'd be most likely to use. After you've appointed favorite smilies, (up to 24 I think, but you don't have to pick that many)...I think they will appear to the right of your writing box. Mine are.>>
Yes, I see him/her and I had picked my smilies when I was somhow editing my preferences. Just didn't know how and where to find them to use them. I love the kisses one being thrown.
>>I have 24 sitting there. If you change your mind about a favorite smiley, you can edit your favorites by clicking the smiley star again. If you put your cursor over him, a pop out box will say EDIT FAVORITE SMILIES.>>
Right now I count ten that I had chosen. Wow, it sure does have a pop out box.
>>I also knit in the round inside out. I didn't realize it until I was hosting a knitalong here at KH. A simple garment called the Tempting II Summer Top. Anyhoo, I had taken some photos of how to add the 'in the round' sleeves to the 'in the round' bodice...and some of the knitters were going HUH?
Well, I probably would have caught on.
>>It was brought to my attention that the rest of the world knits with the RIGHT SIDE on the outside of the tube (garment)...but I knit with the RIGHT SIDE on the inside. Then I just turn it inside out when I'm done! I still prefer my way. I like the needles to be furthest away from me, and I like viewing the RIGHT SIDE on the inside. I dunno why!
I thought of this story when you mentioned your socks! Hey, whatever works!
Yes, that is exactly what I do with the socks that I make, I turn them when I get to the toe, after putting the stitches on the lil plastic saftey pins. Then I have to transfer them back to graft the toe. Works for me. I too like to see the work as it progresses. When you work with the needles close to your face do you catch yourself getting them closer to your nose too?
>>Here is a link for that knitalong for the summertop. You might find the Tempting II or the Tempting I summertops to be very easy and fun to knit! I made both. Tempting II for me, and Tempting I for my daughter.>>
I will take a look and get the pattens. Maybe I will try and see what happen's.
>>(BTW: if you are perplexed with all of our shorthand talk (such as "BTW", or our knitter-talk, such as "thread"....don't be shy to ask me what a term, or abbreviation, means. There is a shorthand dictionary that Amy has provided too, here at KH. When I first joined KH, I was completely baffled by all the abbreviations and knitter-talk. So please ask about anything you are
Some of the short hand I have figured out, but some still throw's me a curve ball now and then. I will keep that in mind when I don't understand something. My son text me once to my email and it took me three days to figure our what he said.
>>On the GENERAL KNITTING front page, the abbreviations are a STICKY a the top of all the general threads in GENERAL KNITTING. It is called COMMON ABBREVIATIONS on this Forum!>>
I will take a look see and I will rmember where it is next time it is needed.
Again Thanks so very much for you help. Tis greatly appreciated.
