2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Helping a beggining spinner out swap (Like a handspun and handcrafted swap) on: July 22, 2008 10:23:24 AM
I was wondering if some one would be up for starting a new art yarn fiber swap. I am to busy to do it myself but I would join. I would love to learn how to spin and seen the handspun and handcrafts thingy. I would love for some one to start this again. I hope some one would be willing to organize this!!!
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Camel hair on: July 16, 2008 01:20:08 PM
So I went to a pettig zoo with the kids today. While I was there I asked if they still had the shearings left over from the llamas and sheeps. Well they didn't but they had about a pound of camel left. (Some lady already stole it up!!!  Angry ) So I took that camel. I wash it just like sheep right?!? And has any one ever used it?!?
4  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / My first spinnings!!! (Pic Heavy) on: July 15, 2008 11:14:05 AM
So yesterday morning I woke up and had to urge to start spinning!!! For a week or so I have been looking at all your awesome yarns and such. So I picked my Butt up and went to the hardware store and purchased some things to make a spindle and to the local craft store to just get some 100% Carded Wool (Used mainly for felting but it worked well.) And here I am with two little balls of yarn. And super super happy!!!! I really want to start processing my out fibers now! Anyway on to the pictures:

Here is my Top Whorl

My bottom Whorl

My very first spinning's!!!!!!!

And again!

My second one!

And again!!!

Now here is a good question. How do you go about asking some one for their shearings?!? I would love to get into all of this. And I heard you can spin dog hair? My mom has a poodle and mentioned to me it would be funny to make yarn out of his fur.
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Wondering were to start with learning spinning?!? on: July 13, 2008 07:47:09 PM
Hi I have always worked with sewing and crocheting. Lately I have been looking around this section more and more. I would really love to start spinning. I am a little broke lately and not ready to shell out 70 on some spinning book. I was also wondering is I buy to fibers carded or if I need to do that. So basically if ANYONE could help me out with cheaper books or website designed for a really new newbie. I found a site at one point that showed how to make a drop spindle with a cd and dowels. Any way. Please some one help me out. All your yarn is soooo gorgeous and I would love to know how it is done. Or if anyone has any books or alder equipment they have been thinking about getting rid of PM me and we might be able to figure something out!!

Thank you all for all for time and help!!
