1  Re: Le Spin de Tour - spinning adventures here in Spinning: Completed Projects by annalou on: July 21, 2006 03:20:37 PM
I meant to post this earlier in honor of the stages in the Alps (but had to wait for my bf to send me the photo).  I took my spindle on a camping trip to Mt. Rainer National Park last weekend. The elevation gain on our hike to camp was only 1000 feet (from 4000' to 5000'), but, I hereby claim some points for the polka-dot jersey!

2  long time coming swap picture in Spinning: Completed Projects by annalou on: October 10, 2005 12:04:24 PM
Greetings everyone,

Since the handspun swap was sometime ago, but I just now have a picture, I thought I'd just post a picture here of the wonderful handspun artistrachelmarie sent to me.  The yarn deserves to be seen:



It is red, green, and purple . . . all kool-aid dyed, if I remember correctly.  I'm still consdiering the possibilities for a project.

As artistrachelmarie said, she & I did a swap on the side.  I finally have pictures to post (not having a digital camera of my own makes posting a bit mor challenging):

1st came some fun yarn and wool she dyed as well as some stitch markers


Then, oh goody, goody, came the colorful bulky handspun in red, green, and purple!

Ok, I haven't yet managed to get my beads into a form that works as handles, but here's the rest of the bag, with all the modifications:

7  Everyone Walks All Over Me in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by annalou on: August 24, 2005 04:12:42 PM
I spiral cut my old socks (most were former hiking socks beyond mending) into long strips and crocheted them into a sturdy rug for the back entrance.  I actually made the rug a few years ago when my "waste not, want not" upbringing challenged me to do something with my holey socks and I needed a rug.

Ok. . . here's my way of attaching strips of fabric/plastic/etc together, short or long.

The blue strip is the "old" strip, and the red strip is the one I'm adding.


I lay the 2 strips on top of each other so that they ovelap about the same amount as they are wide.


Then, I cut a slit in both strips (normally by folding them and cutting with the scissors perpendicular to the fold).


Then, since the new strip is on top, I take the non-slit end and pass it through the 2 slits, moving from bottom to top.


Pull tight, and you have joined the two strips with no sewing; it holds well, yet you can easily take it apart if need be.

Please let me know if you don't understand my directions.
