11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Reversing a lace pattern? on: October 21, 2007 11:34:07 AM
If you need them longer just add repeats of the pattern.  It won't screw anything up.

As to reversing the pattern, yes, basically you just do the sentence backward.  But you have to use a different decrease than slip-knit-psso.

Of course you can.  Sometimes it takes more than one cycle to felt something properly anyway.  I've even re-felted things after they've dried.

I would! But it doesn't fit my big head

Poo.  I have a big head too.  Won't fit me.  So who's it for?

I love it!  Can we see a picture of it on?

16  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you think about Woolee Winders? on: October 15, 2007 05:46:36 AM
I don't have one of my own, but I've spun on wheels with them.  They're nice, but like all 'technology' they have their glitches.  The main reason I haven't bought one is that they're not cheap and you have to buy their bobbins, and I'm able to pack a bobbin fairly well, so I don't feel the absolute need to buy one.  I've also known some people who don't like to ply with them.  If you can get to a fiber festival there are usually people there with wheels and woollee winders and they'd probably let you try them.  You really need to judge for yourself.  But if your a new spinner, I probably wouldn't get one right away.

Thanks! I figured wool, but I wanted to make sure. Are those your dogs in the picture? They're adorable!!!

Yep, them's my dudes.

Use wool.  I like Shelridge Farms for mens socks.  Its cushy, yet warm and absorbant.  But mainly,  use wool.

Yes.  Its an Ashford Student drop spindle.  It weighs about 2 oz and is perfect for learning.

  For all you dance people out there, they're Bloch Suprimas, and they were actually in worse shape than this when I decided to dye them.  I had to get rid of them because I just couldn't get over on my box. 

Completely off topic, but did you try cutting down the shanks or ripping them out completely?  Blochs have a low vamp and are usually good if your arches aren't terribly strong to push you over the toe, but if you need a little more give then cutting down the shank works.

Sorry, my 2 cents.  Former dancer/teacher.
