It seems like I haven't been in the poppet-along in forever!
But my poppet dry spell has dwindled out and I am making a poppet for the IYP...

I am using a handspun yarn for the hair of the poppet. The texture of the yarn is somewhat like this: http://ny-image1.etsy.com//il_fullxfull.118280189.jpg, it has some tighter areas spun-ness (?!?- I am entirely unfamiliar with yarn and whatnot Wink )... and then it has some areas with really loose spun-ness. I find that when I cut the yarn in the loose areas, it unravels the yarn.

So what I was wondering was if anyone had any suggestions as to how to prevent the unraveling? I was thinking of using hair wax on the botton of the yarn, as the yarn is like dreadlocks, or I was wondering if I could use white glue on the bottom?

here:
okay here's what you do: starting with the yarn, wrap it from your fingers to your elbow (TO MAKE  LARGE LOOPS) until there is no more yarn tuck the end inside, then take some other yarn or embroidery thread, tie little pieces around the loops about four of them, to keep it untangled. fill a sink or a basin with hot water (as hot as you can bear it) place the yarn in there, gently squeezing, then place something on top to weigh it down, squeeze a bit more (gently!!!) then leave it there for about half an hour or until no more bubbles come put when you squeeze, them hook it around the faucet like so:

  and pull hard, then pull while twisting (wringing) the yarn, and repeat (you have to do this part aggressively) then take it out, and hang one end of the loop on a clothes hanger and on the other end place 3 or four other hangers to weigh it down, take out when dry, and cut off the little loops of embroidery thread or other yarn, It should be good!

I have been wanting to make poppets for a long time and finally got the chance this winter. They became Christmas presents. I stupidly forgot to get picture of the first one I made which I gave to my niece but I did get ones of the second one I made. The other one I made for a friend and it looks just like her comic book character. Her comic can be found here http://www.redzone-comic.com/ .
Here he is standing

and then sitting

and finally from the back so he can show off the streaks in his hair

He turned out so cool and now I'm officially hooked. My niece sadly wasn't interested in her's because she is so spoiled and if it doesn't come from a store she has no interest in it. However, my friend loved her's so much and said she couldn't have gotten a better present. So that made it all worth it again. Thank you Ghillie for giving me the opportunity to make something so cool.
