1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday-June 25,2010 on: June 25, 2010 10:18:35 PM
This is my first skein. It's only 26 yards. Light pink. It went a lot better than the little trial I did, it's still not worsted though. booooo. I'll get there though. After I can scrounge up more money for wool. Tongue I used the red Dylon dye and it turned this really cute pale pink.

I am so trying this as soon as I am out of my store bought stuff. I'm a poor college student so I usually can only afford the cheapest of laundry soaps, which I think don't clean very well. I am a laundry freak, so this is exciting. My hubby and future room mate even find this interesting! (Who thought two men would jump on the crafty boat?)

Thanks so much for the advice and the vids. Last night before I went to bed, I set the spin and it doesn't look half bad. Yay!

It's a little past Friday, but I attempted my first spinning ever today. I think I am in love with this wool. It feels less scratchy then what I've bought from stores. (Do I hear an addiction calling?) Anyway it isn't set or dyed yet, and I posted over in the discussion board because I had some things to clear up. Feel free to take a look and offer all the advice you can because everyone here makes the prettiest yarns I have ever seen. I can't wait to be as good! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351323.0

Definitely not as easy as some of you make it look. I got the hang of it as I went on though. I made a beautiful and accidental thick and thin. I do have a little concern with whether or not this will be overspun when i take it off. I didn't learn of overspinning until about 5 minutes ago. How do you avoid overspinning? Also, does the think-thin wonky look come from an uneven draft or does how I spin also effect that? Finally, I can't find anything that tells me what to do with the end of the yarn when I'm finished. I'm afraid the spin will come out.
Here's my creation!

6  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: hexagon afghan crochetalong on: June 12, 2010 11:33:03 AM
It's been awhile since anyone posted in this thread, but I have a question. I really want to make this, but I'd prefer if the end result were a square. Anyone know how to do that? I just got a new queen bed and I'd love to make this for it. And my fiance actually likes it too. So I must do it! Also, if I do a solid color for each hexagon, does anyone know how much yarn it will take? An estimate is ok.

The Zoology text book I used last year actually said it was octopuses...  ;DWell at least we all know it isn't octopi. Haha. He's cuuuute. Maybe I need to make myself an octopus friend.

I spent time growing up between St. Louis and the Ft. Wood area. My absolute favorite place is the butterfly house. I also LOVE forest park and all the old, beautiful houses around that area. Sometimes I wish my permanent residence would be back up there, but then again if I lived there, I probably wouldn't visit these places as much.

All of my items together. Except I didn't take a picture of the kitty stickers.

A close up of the interior fabric. Very cute!

A pin cushion that was hidden in the pocket on the front of the bag!

And the bag without the pin cushion!

I used a small amount of wool I had that I got for free. I think that made it stiffer, and why there appears to be holes in some places, mostly where dec's are. I like this though! It's easy to make and warm. I don't have velcro, so a safety pin will do for now.
