1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Science/Math geek swap? on: September 21, 2007 02:39:25 PM
hey ladies, some craziness has come up with work and school and everything else starting ALL at once, but dont dispair! i WILL have signups up as soon as i send out my few errant packages this weekend...it may take me till monday, but then i will extend the rest of the dates to reflect the delay ((unless you would all rather just signups monday-friday and then we can figure it out from there?))

hope everyone is alright and surviving your own craziness with the fall!

my natural dreads totally didnt work for me ((my hair is naturally VERY oily...as is my skin and nails...grr)) but i occassionally do plaited in wool double enders, and to tie them back i use calorimetry bands, pantas work well also, but are more of a pain to knit ((and i like the way the calorimetry looks 9.9 x 10 ^ inifinity times better)) and i  made two calorimetry's for a girl on the hair forum im part of, and she thought they were perfect for natural dreads too.  theyre also quite warm and sit right over your ears if you chose to wear them that way.

Hi Ladies ((And Any Gents Out There))

I'm Ariel, and I'll be 16 this Friday ((the 7th)) I live outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and I'm a Junior at a new school this fall.  I feel like I'm a freshman all over again. I mainly Knit and Spin at the moment, but I also sew and crochet periodically. I love music, especially on a Ska kick right now, so local Ska music from your area would ROCK, if youre into that kinda thing. 

here is my wistlist.

-*BIG WISH* Acid OR Fiber Reactive dyes, either or, ive got a bunch of white superwash wool//nylon blend spinning fiber just calling my name

-spinning fibers--handdyed, hand blended, what have you, i especially like the stuff with a little glitz in it, its so pretty!

-a big needle holder//case//thinger, ive been helping my grandma out a lot this summer, shes got really bad arthritis and cant do all the crafty stuff she use to, so she gave me ALL of her old knitting needles, that shes found so far, about 25-30 sets of them, shes still looking for the set of interchangeable circs, but right now theyre in a big mailing tube, not so attractive, not so easy to store either, if you could come up with an awesome way to store an organize them, the other people in my house would probably love you more than i would!

-two skeins of Dale Of Norway : Hauk, in black and white((one of each)) for the we call them pirates hat

-cool book covers, not the icky stretchy kind, the sewn kind with velcro or buttons or something to hold them on, i have to share a locker at my new school, and i want to  be able to tell me textbooks apart from my locker persons, we have a few of the same classes((just one or two is fine, im attempting to figure out how to make these as it is))

-random extra circular needles, smaller sizes preferably...1-9, bigger than that i rarely use, does not need to be a specific length Thanks Javede! ((im taking this off because i also bought the set of Boye interchangables...yay))

-patterns for lace work, small stuff, big stuff, shawls, whatever, im totally getting on a lace kick!claimed in another swap

-lace weight yarn, handdyed would be awesome, but doesnt need to be.

-*big wish* the new amigurumi book by Beth Doherty--Amigurumi:Super Happy Crochet Cute
i bought this book, cause it looked cool, and is awesome.

-a nestlace or nest ring, a ring would be awesome, PM me for sizing ((ive got tiny fingers, gotta figure out my actual ring size...usually between a five and a half and a six and a half depending on all sorts of stuff)) Thanks ViolinRomance!

-polymer clay pendants, look at fraggelspice's awesome work for inspiration, i love her stuff.>>>>>>http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5552037

-random crochet motif's...it would be really cool to piece them all together and make an afghan out of it.

-buttons, embroidery flosses, aida cloth, ive got a project in mind. Thanks for the buttons and the SURPRISE! AliBeachGirl!

-DMC pearl cotton ((the kind that comes in a 25 m twisted hank)) and seed beads ((or the super pretty crystals)) to make perditas, I finally figured out how to make them, and love the way they look.  any color is awesome, i may like to match, but Im still a bit quirky

-and of course, a birthday surprise

thanks in advance to anyone who choses me, take a look at my wist for inspiration, but please PM me if you want to pick something off of it, some of it is old or i added it cause it gave me an idea and i wanted to save it kind of thing. ((link in sig))

About Me!

I'm Ariel, I live just outside of Milwaukee, Wisc. and I'll be SIXTEEN! on friday, im starting a new school this week, as i moved a few months back and transfered to the school in my new town, I'll be a junior this year, taking a lot of math based classes, but I love English and Science, I'm okay with Social Studies classes, but just not so into it.  my home has smoke and dog potential, but i try to keep my craft stuff away from both, and fabreze most everything before it gets sent out.  I'm a knitter, sewer, crocheter and new spinner ((got a wheel from ren fair for my birthday...SO much better than a car!)) I'm deffinitly into music, right now I'm on a super Ska kick, listening to a lot of Less than Jake and Tsunami Bomb, and my uncle made me copies of Madness albums, WHICH ROCK! theyre SOOO awesome. Favorite colors are black, red and royal purple, but i also love oceany colors and sunrise colors ((when theyre all together theyre gorgeous))

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where to buy roving: Sheep Shed Studio testimonials on: September 03, 2007 12:40:00 PM
well, ive spun up the prettiness carol included in my box of the nylon//superwash, and its gorgeous, i havent weighed it cause i dont have a tiny scale, but im thinking it was about four onces, which ended up being 171 yards of worsted weight navajo plyed gloriousness.  now im making myself the glastig hat from anticraft.  eventually when i remember to charge the camera battery ill post pictures of her gorgeous handdyed.
