My first couple of tries, it was a little difficult to get the consistancy of the mud right.  Just a hint, you really don't want it all that wet.  More of a shortbread dough consistancy.  I found that worked the best.  I was really supprised by how it came out.  It's kinda like a smaller, rough pool (billiard) ball.  Very hard.  Be careful not to drop it though.  It landed on a pillow but hit a spiral bound notebook binding and it chipped off some of the dirt.  So, they -are- kind of fragile.  I think you'll really enjoy making these.

Oh, the dirt came from Primm, Nevada, right outside of Las Vegas.  We stopped there to get gas on our way home from our first trip there with a couple friends.

I saw this on Mythbusters and immediately started researching it.  I loved the idea and loved making it.  It's supprisingly relaxing.  After two days of playing with mud..... I got my ball!  It's supposed to be shiny but, I didn't want to shine it.  I decided that I liked it the way it was.

In my hand, for size.

47  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / How much roving do I need??? on: December 28, 2008 12:14:42 PM
I have been really interested in making my own yarn.  So, I ordered s drop spindle kit and it should be here soon.  I've also been looking at roving and raw wool online.  I was just wonderint how much (in weight) I would actually need to get a good amount of yarn to be able to do something with.

What the hell... a stapler? lol.  That's a hell of a way to say you cut yourself in the shower.  No one'd ever believe you did it with a stapler haha.  That's hilarious.  I'd totally put that on my bathroom counter!
