24  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / spinning costs on: December 17, 2005 12:44:43 AM
i would really like to start spinning, but it seems like it would be a very expensive hobby. how much yarn can you make off of 8 oz of fiber? i already knit (all the time) so i spend a fair amount of money on yarn anyhow. how much time does it take to spin one skein. just wondering. thanks in advance!

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / bond ultimate sweater machine on: December 15, 2005 06:06:00 PM
hi. i am getting a knitting machine (of some sort) for christmas. my mom talked to a knitting professor ( how cool is that, i want to be a knitting professor) from the fashion design program about knitting machines, and she suggested a new electronic knitting machine. an electronic machine would cost about 1400 dollars, which is not going to happen. so i did some internet research and i found the deluxe ultimate sweater machine by bond. it says you can knit 1200 stitches per minute and it is capable of lace cables intarsia. it says it has extra parts so that it can match any needle size. and its 275 dollars! this seems to good to be true compared with the fancy knitting machine prices. has anyone tried this machine, i would love to hear your feedback so i can make an educated purchase! thanks!
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / guitar strap on: December 12, 2005 06:40:41 PM
hi, i am making a guitar strap for my boyfriend for christmas, but i am confused on the sizing. i am making it as long as his normal guitar strap, but i know its going to stretch with the weight of the guitar. should i block it stretched out? Should i make it shorter than his normal strap, does it even matter? anyone? thanks?
