Thanks for the kind comments.  I used the joining up as you go method.  It was really hard to get them to match, and there's still a bit that isn't quite straight.  Oh well!

Thanks for the ideas!  I've tried the loud noise thing but they've both got too used to that.  Will give the spray bottle a go!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Cat attack on: February 21, 2012 03:32:56 PM
I have a five month old kitten who wants my crochet and knitting to die.  He goes crazy attacking the wool (and my hands/legs).  I've tried keeping the skein covered as I work, but then he goes for the yarn in my hands.  Our other kitten has no problem.  I crochet a LOT and I can't bear the thought that I'll have to shut him out of the room every time I work.

Does anyone have any tips on how you keep your cats from attacking your work?
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What paint to use? on: December 03, 2011 02:43:28 AM
Hello!  I'm not sure if this is the right category for this question but I'll give it a go.  I have a plain wooden footstool which I am decorating.  I have drawn a pattern on the top with a black Sharpie and I would like to fill it in with paints and then varnish.  I want nice bright colours and am wondering what would be the best paint to use. I want to be quite detailed but still have the colours stand out.  The wood is untreated white wood (possibly pine).  Thanks for any advice!

Thanks, I've looked at acid dyes and I'm starting to be convinced, I just wanted a machine dye for convenience.  I've never dyed in a pan on the stove before, but hopefully it's straightforward.  I'm wary of wasting money on a machine dye in case the colour won't stick.  Thanks for your help!  Smiley

Hello!  Is it possible to machine dye a piece of clothing that is knitted from yarn that is 80% lambswool and 20% polyamide.  Will the colour stick if I use normal washing machine dye?

Thanks for any advice!

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post in, but I'm hoping someone can tell me if it's possible to machine dye a piece of clothing that is knitted from yarn that is 80% lambswool and 20% polyamide.  Will the colour stick if I use normal washing machine dye?

Thanks for any advice!
