1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / I made YARN! on: February 20, 2008 01:13:59 AM
And you know I had to come show it off..
2-ply, roving bought at handpaintedyarn.com. Thick-n-thin cause I was slacking (it is 4am..). But I love it.

I don't know if you're on ravelry, but there is a group that meets weekly (I think) in Dupont Circle at Cosi's.
I live in Petworth so its hard for me to get down there after work- I usually get home around 7-7:30. I thought it might be cool to start a group that meets at people's houses? Knitting, booze and gossip is ideal for me.

I think I experienced that too. My shading hurt like HELL, even though in the past the linework has been more painful. I didn't make the connection till afterwards.

Thanks, y'all.
My yarn had been stored on my bed, in boxes, on the floor until now. I was at my Mom's poking around in the attic for some storage containers when I discovered the hanging thing. I have no idea where she got it but I'm pretty sure they have them at Target and I'm SURE they have them at Ikea. Its perfect because the one thing I'm blessed with is a large closet!

After yet another trip to the yarn store today, I decided it was time to find somewhere to store all this crap. Ideally I would have a nice big apartment with an extra room to store everything in, but in a group house with 4 other people, thats not happening. So, here's what I came up with:
Champagne box for needles-

closet yarn storage-

I would love to hear everyone else's methods of organization!

I used some stuff that my mom had- its pretty cheap to buy at a fabric store- I forget what its called though.
But basically its fabric backed with paper. You can do the same sort of thing by getting a piece of (paper sized) plain fabric and a piece of wax or freezer paper the same size- iron them on a low heat setting until they're stuck together and run through the printer. Then just peel them apart.
Hope that makes sense!

I made this quite some time ago and found it tonight while looking for my Pippi Longstocking movie (couldn't find her, though). My sewing is a little off because I used my mom's fancy pants sewing machine. The image is printed on the fabric.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Handspun Armwarmer(s) on: January 11, 2008 07:58:13 PM
So, I'm done with the first arm warmer. This was first a fetching, but was frogged cause it was ugly as sin. I then made it a basic ribbed cuff arm warmer. It was a bit big, so I felted it lightly. Its not dry yet but I like it much much more than all other versions.

Where do you live? I'd be down, but I'm often busy in the evening..
