usually, i'd like the green more than the white. but that white... is just so... fluffy, and smooth, and lovely and mmm! you're making me want to try this--seeing someone's success on a first attempt is always tempting. also, i want to second the comments on your photography. very, very well-done.

on livejournal, either today or yesterday, someone posted this picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v114/casia/org_sunset.jpg

...and my response was, "man, i wish i could dye something in those colors!"

but you beat me to it! excellent job. i love seeing things made of the handspun people show off here. i like knowing "what happens to it afterwards."

my significant other (he and i are both big ol' narutards) says, "you and the person who made that are the biggest dorks in the world."

which, i'm pretty sure, means he thinks it's awesome. and i fully agree.

those are SUPER excellent. i've seen gocco-ed stuff on here before, but this is the first thing that made me want to try it myself. always the mark of a good project.

me, i like "junky funky" as a name. it seems to fit--plus it sets off positive resonances in the brain of anyone who loves that show "junky TO funky"! i'd be interested to see how it knit up.

i love the colors in the first dyed picture--the blues and greys. what did you use to dye it? (i'm only familiar with kool-aid dyeing, and you don't get such subtle, pretty colors with that usually.)

>Any tips on warping without a warping board?

yes! it's a little hard to explain, so i found you some directions: http://reviews.ebay.com/Warp-a-rigid-heddle-loom-the-easy-way_W0QQugidZ10000000001572825?ssPageName=BUYGD:CAT:-1:LISTINGS:2

basically, you set up a warping peg and put your loom as far away from the peg as you want the warp to be. then, run a continuous thread between your back beam/back apron rod/whatever it is bekas have and the peg, going through each slot in the heddle.

the linked directions are much clearer, i promise.

btw: i like your colours a lot! that's a very cute scarf, and i love that i can see your progress.

if you want to do a box like this of your own but don't want to cut up Klassic Fifties Komix!! or whatever: the spiderman comics in the newspaper are just as corny! so much so that my spiderman-fan boyfriend refuses to read them. you get less milaege (inchage?) per strip than you would per comic book but it's guilt-free.
79  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dnd Dice Jewelry Help (b-day gift by july 10) on: June 27, 2007 01:53:02 PM
try what thinkgeek does: http://www.thinkgeek.com/apparel/jewelry/7ae3

this way you don't have to drill anything. (plus you can take it out of the necklace/bookmark/etc and play with it!) another way to do the same thing is to mimic the wire "cages" in which people are putting marbles and other non-drilled things. (those are here on craftster... somewhere. here's one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169350.0

and another: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88681.0

and there are more, too, including ones that actually involve d20s.)

one note: if you go with a spiral instead of a "cage", and don't think the recipient will want to play with the die/dice, i recommend superglue.

You know you're a craftster when:

you're scanning through the cable TV guide and you, not really paying attention because you're just looking for something to "have on" while you craft, mis-read Budo: the Art of Killing as [blur]: the Art of Knitting. and you go "ooh!!" and then get really disappointed to find out you're wrong... but then you go on to muse on how cool it would be if Budo: the Art of Killing did in some way involve knitting.

first craftster post ever; hope it works out right
