I'm moving overseas in a few months, and it is *totally* unfeasible for me to take any of my yarn stash with me, which makes me unhappy, but, well, what can you do. I also have something over a pound of unspun wool of random colours, a good deal of it white and brown. Also big handspun singles of brown, and hand-dyed variegated green ones. I'd like to be able to get some money for some of this (for example, the $120 worth of various colours of Lion brand suede), but mostly it just needs to go to someone who can use it.
So, I have 26 tshirts of some amount of sentimental value, seven of which there are things on both sides I want to use, that I'd like to turn into a quilt. Any tips or tutorials anyone can share? I've never made a quilt before o.o
edit wait, possibly 27, jsut found another in the bottom of the bin I was using for them. Don't want to recount >_<
I'm quite proud of how this turned out. It's in Lion brand Suede, the lower half is Olive and the upper half is Sage, one skein of each, worked up with a J hook (the recommendation on the label). The handles were on clearance at Joann's in Dec '06
It appears my cat wanted to get in on the photo shoot! It is her house after all.
Let me know what you think! It's going to be used to carry my books around for school. I reinforced where I crocheted the handles on to make sure it'd hold up.
I'm not positive this is arty enough to go in here, but I couldn't figure out where else to put it.
I made this a long time back on a sudden burst of inspiration. The letter of BLEED? are cut around with an exacto knife, leaving enough to hold them in place, and red paint tempera paint thinned with water squeezed through from the back. The phrase is from Shakespeare - The Merchant Of Venice.
They're not very accurate, and there's a lot of things I'd like to fix if I make another pair (I am SUCH a perfectionist, you would not believe how many times I frogged and redid bits until I went AUGH I am sick of this it can stay as it is.)
I'm trying to crochet a pair of goggles like these from Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:
I have parts, and this is what they should go together as:
My problem is trying to get this

Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried sc'ing it on, and slst'ing it on, and neither looked right (I was working in the brown trying this because the fuzzy black yarn is an absolute b*tch to work with, I hate it with a passion but it is somehow the only black in my enormous stash). I can't find a tapestry needle in my crochet things, but if I keep having troubles I may go steal one and some thread from my mum and just whipstitch it together :/
Is there anywhere that sells fiber in Tucson? I just ordered some off the Internet (Sheep Shed Studio), but it would probably cheaper if I didn't have to pay shipping. And do we have an LYS in Tucson? What does LYS stand for, anyway?
It's probably an old episode, but its on now on Discovery (In Tucson, AZ) and I was wondering about yarn and thinking about writing them - and then my prayers are answered! (How It's Made is so cool.....)
