2  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?
3  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!
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dyeing mixed-fibre yarn on: June 13, 2011 01:13:52 PM
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!
6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / beginner question - attaching roving on: January 09, 2011 08:13:10 AM
Hello, I have just started spinning with a drop spindle.  I spun enough for a small swatch with the wool that came with my spindle, but the new roving I bought isn't very long so I am having to attach new pieces quite a lot - what is the best way to start a new piece of roving to make sure the fibres stick to each other?  Sorry for not explaining well, I am new to this!

Is it just a case of going more slowly and feeding the new roving on top of the old?
