1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Will this spindle work for a beginner? on: February 20, 2008 05:16:47 PM
My mother (I've nicked named her "madame tries too hard") overheard me talking to my roommate about my desire to learn to spin. 

Two days later (yesterday), I get an email saying she's bought me a spindle and is sending it my way.

this is what it looks like:



It's a top whorl.  According to my mother it's got a 1.2 ounce weight, 2" whorl, and has an 8" shaft.

Am I entirely effed?  Is this too light?  I'm really excited/worried.  So... what do you think?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What to do with Stash Inflating presents? on: February 03, 2008 01:15:22 PM
Help!

My Gram was my inspiration to start knitting/crochetting.  She tried to teach me when I was a wee 'un, but I just couldn't get it.

Then when I picked it up in late high school, Gram decided it was time to start giving me yarn she wasn't using.  That was fine for then.  I didn't have a job, and was perfectly fine using cheap-o Red Heart type stuff....

However, 5 years later, she's decided to start buying me yarn.  Yesterday she sent me a package of 7 skeins of Yarn Bee Dreamy Chenille in Island Teal and one in Licorice.
I love chenille, and it would break my heart to go visit Gram this summer and tell her that I haven't used her yarn and/or gave it away, but I don't know what to do with it.

Jacket?

Bag(s)?



Ideas?

4  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / Stitch and Bitch / Craftsters in Knoxville? on: January 26, 2008 11:26:16 AM
Hey guys.

I'm relatively new to Knoxville, and I'm getting tired of sitting at home and crafting on my roommates bed by myself while he grades papers and listens to music.

Does anyone know of any S&B groups or any other crafting groups that don't meet at an LYS?  I've been wanting to join/start one but I thought I'd see if anyone here knew of one first.

Thanks!

Amy
