7411  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Felted Dreads? on: September 15, 2009 09:15:57 PM
if you need a link to felted rope, here's one:
http://www.feltinglessons.com/Felted_ropes.html

I just made ropes for the first time, oh 20 minutes ago...  easy as pie!!!!  they were quite thin, but i did think of making myself some clip in dreads for when my hair grows back to the length it was (damn hairdresser and her happy scissors.......)  But the thought of the dreads came from makeing the rope.
As for just wearing them for one night, you could sew them to a headband, or maybe some combs, or even single bobby pins... and just wear a hat over top, I suppose it depends what you plan on being, but those are a few ideas....
Hopefully you find the link helpful!

I whiped out 3 necklaces.. okay well the beginings of 2, and finished the 3rd tonight.  LOVE em!  I've talked to the Bank (yeah theres only one here... ) and I have their permission to display some art work, and the necklaces are for the ladies that work the front desk.  I think I'll make the boss man a tie or something.....  Anyway i' m glad i'm finally making progress on it, albeit minimal.

ahahhaaa!  that is EXACTLY what I did!  Except my gnome had white pigtails Smiley

yeah I would likely replace the carding cloth.  likely to 98tpi,  or more...  I found a site that sells it for 5.80 per inch, but I'm not sure how many inches i'll need.  I've messaged the seller though, to find out how big the drums are, to work out the price.  It may be more worth it to buy a new one in the end anyway.... we'll see Smiley


good luck with the Step moms surgery SML.  Also I say don't hesitate on the Traveler.  get that.  I lurve mine!

I wonder what my mother would say if I did this to my porcelin doll colection.....  (btw I'm now 27, and had collected them since I was 8 until I was about 14....)  Do you think she'd flip?

7420  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: To make my own WPI..... on: September 14, 2009 07:58:03 AM
i think it would be the way I would see it... it takes more yarn to go around a piece that is say 1 inch by 1 inch by 1/4 inch then it would to go around a piece that is 1 inch by 1/2 inch by 1/4 inch.   But I guess you could probably wrap it around a piece that is a foot by 1 inch by 1/2 inch and get the same amount of wraps in that one inch, right?  I confuse easily.  Especially now that I'm pregnant again...   But I think you cleared it up for me.  it doesn't mater how much yarn you use, it maters how many times the yarn wraps in that one inch.
