21  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday 01/29/10 on: January 29, 2010 05:06:24 AM
One good thing about being unemployed, I'm getting a lot of spinning done!  These are the yarns from this week.  They are each between 150-200 yards of 2 ply.  Some have already been knitted into projects.

This is now a baby gnome hat ...

22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian Crochet on: October 20, 2009 06:25:51 PM
What makes this different than regular crochet?

Okay, I hear it is a combination of knitting anc crochet, but I have no one here to walk me through this.  I am both a crocheter and knitter, so this shouldn't be that difficult, should it?

I learn better by seeing.  Any YouTube videos out there that you would receommend??

My DH brought me back a book of Tunisian Crochet with patterns from 1860-1864  (he was attending the Cedar Creek VA Civil War event last weekend)

Thanks so much!!

2 ply sock yarn.  One ply multi colored (cotton), one ply white (50/50 cotton/silk)




Hat and left over hand spun that created it:



What is on the wheel now.  This is the 2nd bobbin




The next two are NOT my handspun, but some "Newbie" handspun I collected this year.  I'm showing the pictures just so folks can realize WHY I love newbie yarn.  It knits up so wonderfully!!!!

This yarn was created by freestyle

25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Crib Bumper & Blanket on: July 25, 2009 09:00:26 PM
Hi Craftsters,

This is my first post in this forum ... I'm usually over in the Fiber Arts and Bath/Beauty Forums (as well as a few on going swaps!)

I am NOT a sewer (unless it is sewing together my knit/crochet/woven articles.

 My oldest daughter is pregnant with my first grandchild.  I'd like to have a special crib bumper and crib blanket made for her .... but since I don't sew, I have a dilemma.

If anyone could help me out with this, please contact me via PM.  I sure do appreciate it!!

I know it is early, but I'm on vacation tomorrow and I've already missed a couple weeks of FF!

I haven't taken pictures of the yarns I've created, but do have a few of some hand painted roving I dyed up last weekend.

For your viewing pleasure:

Summer Skies



StormySkies



Send in the Clowns



Rose Garden



Cotton Candy



Grapes of Wrath



The Rest Are Un-Named



possibly named Salmon String




All of them

There is at least 8 oz of each colorway

The yellow in this 2 ply is from the Upper Canadian Village mill.  As I understand it, one of the few mills still run by water power.

It drafts like butter making a wonderful woolen single.  I was able to successfully draft this using the one handed long draw. (ala spinning for speed and softness).

It is plyed with a single of unknown wool that I used the rest of my hair dye to splotch in color.

185 yards

29  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Old Loom on: March 02, 2009 10:22:14 AM
Anyone familiar with assembling an old loom?

I'm still not sure if it is a counter balance or a counter marche loom.  Not all the pieces are pictured.






This reed came with it.  I do have a metal one, but how many weavers have seen a reed made from real reed??l
