LaughingLark- that scarf is amazing.  I'd be curious whether the effect can be repeated with other variegated yarn, or if it was just a happy chance.

qazicat- thanks for the site.  I shall have to check it out and see if I can make my stash work with it.

Oh so pretty!  I love the deer on the ribbon (?) of the middle one.

While I have the supplies in my stash, I am currently half a continent away from said stash (yay grad-school).  I've asked my father to mail it, so it should be here soon.  If not, well, then I'll catch up as best I can when it finally arrives.

My yarn stash has grown as well, since my housemate brought some of her mothers' back with her from the holidays and it is living in my room now.  The idea was to use it in teaching two other housemates to knit, but trying to pin them down now that the semester has started is proving difficult...

Oh well, at least we did not spend any money to acquire more yarn.

Quite ingenious!  It must have taken forever to figure out how to secure it without interfering with the buttons.

Out of curiosity, what sort of ebook reader is it?

I have a spindle somewhere in my stash.  It is fairly lightweight, and and claims to be convertible between top and bottom whorl (a hook on one end, notch on the other, if I recall correctly).  Would this be a reasonable learning one, or should I start looking for dead CDs?  From the looks of the pictures here and most "learn to spin" kits, a spindle with a little bit of heft seems to be the general starting point.  

The first post suggested an "average" size, but what is average?  Is there a weight or whorl diameter to aim for?

Sorry for the long-winded question.  I tend to dither a bit before launching into learning a new skill...

I'd love to learn to spin.  I have some roving in my stash but have been unable to figure out how to spin it by reading on my own.  Perhaps with a group of similarly bewildered folk the attempt will be more successful.

Such pretty doves and invites!

tlh878- welcome aboard.  Can't blame you for skipping reading it all (that's time that could be spent crafting, after all).  But if you find yourself in need of inspiration, there are "themes" on the first page.

I've got a few little bags to show.  (well actually two small and one large).

I'm particularly fond of the green one, as it is just the right size for small knitting projects, or a paperback and sandwich, and its made from just a fat quarter.

That's probably all the sewing I'll get to do for a while.  I'm back at school, and didn't have room for much stash in my suitcase...But I still have plenty of yarn to get through.

I did a few projects like that last year.  I kinda bent the rules by knitting them immediately before the yarn ended up in my stash basket.  Therefore I wasn't technically adding to my stash, right?  A convenient loop-hole, really.
