2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / missing the old school Craftster on: May 24, 2008 04:29:57 PM
share and share alike......
not anymore!

what happened to everyone sharing their patterns and tips along with their pictures.
it seems like most people are showing the pictures and planting the ideas but not following through with the tips and tricks anymore.
does anyone else feel like this or is it me?

here is mine.
i try to keep all of my fiber in gallon size ziplocks, in the fabric cubes with ceder block,(i am paranoid about moths!) but it has spilled over to the chair next to it and the floor. on top of the cube case is a wooden shelfy box thing that holds my thread, sequins, angelina, beads and other odds and ends add ins.
the big blue bags are full of raw alpaca.

this is after i cleaned it up this afternoon......it looks a little better!
now show me yours!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make yarn out of this.....swap on: November 10, 2007 11:12:46 AM
i was thinking about a fiber swap where we would send 4ish ounces of fiber plus some spin in extras (beads, buttons, ribbon, silk, commercial yarn etc.) to our partner and see what they can spin out of it.
they will give you a color or a theme and you will provide the fiber and extras to spin in.
i have some example pics
first the fiber and extras...
there is a fiber batt, pink orange and black wool; along with 2 commercial yarns

and the finished yarn

4.5oz and 135yards
i dont think i would be able to handle running the swap.
what do you think?

here are four new yarns that i have spun up!
first is Cookie 108 yards with crocheted cookie badges.
multi colored wool
i made the cookies removable so they can be moved around in the yarn

the second is an unnamed one
and it is 125 yards
wool and gold thread

third is star dust at 184 yards i think it is sock weight yarn?
with wool and pink eyelash

and the fourth is my favorite SUPER SPACE COILS!!!
wool and thread
only 80 yards but it was sooo much fun to spun up!
this was my first time trying to do coils

this was a very productive week for me, normally i only make one skein a week.
i hope i can keep it up!
comments are welcome!!!
thanks for looking
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / dork wrapped in a nerd! -new yarn on: August 15, 2007 02:40:01 PM
this yarn was made to look like one of Jupiter's moons-Io
it is 152 yards on wool, black threaded sequins, tons of pink angelina and beaded "lava flows"

here is some info on the moon Io:
***Jupiter's moon Io [EYE-oh or EE-oh] is one of the most exotic places in the solar system. It is the most volcanic body known, with lava flows, lava lakes, and giant calderas covering its sulfurous landscape. It has billowing volcanic geysers spewing sulfurous plumes to over 500 kilometers high. Its mountains are much taller than those on Earth, reaching heights of 16 kilometers (52,000 feet).
Io orbits closer to Jupiter's cloud tops than the moon does to Earth. This places Io within an intense radiation belt that bathes the satellite with energetic electrons, protons, and heavier ions. As the Jovian magnetosphere rotates, it sweeps past Io and strips away about 1,000 kilograms (1 ton) per second of volcanic gases and other materials. This produces a neutral cloud of atoms orbiting with Io as well as a huge, doughnut shaped torus of ions that glow in the ultraviolet. The torus's heavy ions migrate outward, and their pressure inflates the Jovian magnetosphere to more than twice its expected size. Some of the more energetic sulfur and oxygen ions fall along the magnetic field into the planet's atmosphere, resulting in auroras. Io acts as an electrical generator as it moves through Jupiter's magnetic field, developing 400,000 volts across its diameter and generating an electric current of 3 million amperes that flows along the magnetic field to the planet's ionosphere.***
