1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fender sweater on: October 12, 2008 10:37:15 AM
This is my first adult sized sweater. I spun the yarn from lambswool I bought from the Homestead Wool and Gift Farm; the lamb's name is Fender. My husband builds guitars as a hobby so that seemed like a sign or something. It's a little tight, but he loves it.

2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / thrift score on: October 12, 2008 10:27:40 AM
I found this at Goodwill for $3 yesterday. It's just a toy, but I'm super excited to make a scarf on it, as soon as I figure out how to set it up. I also made the lap loom out of Craft this week.

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Am I undercutting? on: September 24, 2008 06:21:23 PM
I have an etsy shop where I sell my handspun yarn (mostly art yarns) and a few hanknit things. I'm new and I'm not in it to quit my day job or anything, just to be able to buy more fiber and fund my habit. I've been thinking about using a formula to price my yarn and I've seen other spinners charge things like $16 for the labor plus materials, but these are pros. Is it fair to classify myself as an amateur? What would you charge, but also what is your cringe point for the price of yarn?

(Also, how's my site look?)
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / too much vinegar? on: September 20, 2008 07:33:10 AM
Is it possible to use too much vinegar to set food color dyes? How much do you guys use?
5  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / vinegar and kool-aid on: March 10, 2008 09:41:56 PM
I read the knitty article that said no vinegar was necessary because its already so acidic. but every other site says to use it. Also, what's the deal with using a little soap in the pre-soak?
