so, i was thinking. and when i'm thinking, it can be dangerous. according to locard's exchange principle, every time a person comes into contact with something, an exchange of trace evidence occurs. so does this mean that while one is spinning yarn, not only does one get covered in fiber, but would one also leave microscopic skin cells along the entire length of the spun yarn? that sounds kinda nifty, actually... putting a bit of yourself into your yarn. literally. wow. maybe i shouldn't spin yarn while watching csi anymore.... Cheesy

CSI is a great show.
You should definately write the director and demand an episode about it  Smiley

 I don't spin, but (kind of along similar lines) I know I often find myself accidentally knitting my hair into whatever I'm knitting.

Me too.  I knit my hair into what I knit.  And if it is black, you can't tell since I have black hairs.   Cheesy

Red hair shows up everywhere. Even in red yarn. I need to buy a sheep with my haircolor just so my hair will blend in with the rest of the yarn.

DNA degrads, so it would have to be tested within a certain amount of time, and it also needs to be enough to actually draw a sample from, and that amount would not be enough.

Another thing, while it is nice to draw a sample from a tiny amount, there must be enough for the defense to also be able to test it as well with their specialists.

Sorry, forensics is my area of study and CSI, while entertaining, is a great way to learn what not to do in forensics evidence collections!
My professors all cannot stand the show, but I found it is great for those studying forensics to watch it to practice what not to do!  LOL!

Also, tranference always occurs so all crafts on works with the hands takes a part of that person AND the person who then receives it as well!

I must admit, I actually kind of like that idea  Smiley

When I knit or crochet a gift for someone with my handspun, that fibre has travelled through my hands 5 times.  I always think that makes for a pretty special gift...  And I always wash it before I give (ick, I can't imagine how many skin cells are in there too!)

A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.

melissaamy - yeah, i know. but i'm a geek, and i was a bit over-tired when i wrote that, so it was a little more stream-of-conciousness than usual. scary. Cheesy

i did not learn all i know about forensics from csi. i also used to be a big fan of quincy.

*waits for forensic student to explode*

heh heh. if there's a show more inaccurate than csi, it's quincy. but they're still fun.

seriously - i took a forensic anthropology class (and my prof was as amused by csi as i'm sure yours are...). i also did a bit of supplemental reading outside of that class... you know, reading books on forensics in the gym gets you weird looks. and if you start laughing while reading those books, no one's gonna come up to you and bug you to get off the elliptical... Cheesy

but, basically, i was wondering if it would work (and you say it's unlikely. i can deal with that answer. Cheesy) and also, how often does one get to mention locard's exchange principle in a crafting forum? Cheesy
