So, I just ordered a spindle, and I need to order some roving to go with it. It seems like a waste of S&H to order like.. 4 oz. So, let's say you had a pound of roving, that you spun into worsted weight yarn, about how many yards of yarn would you have?
You can't really see in the picture, but yes, they have a thumb hole. I'm debating on whether or not to dye them. They match anything now, but they're also kind of bland. They were fun to make, though.
After finally completing my first granny square, it wasn't perfect, so I decided to add some stuff on to it to test out a couple of techniques for upcoming projects. When I was finished testing, I was about to throw it into the scraps bin, but realized that it looked like it would fit perfectly around my roomie's ashtray. I cleaned up the ashtray, stuck it on, & sewed up the corners to make it stay better. Now I have a nifty... potpourri dish or something. I'm up for suggestions
