11  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: Toyota Ad on: June 07, 2009 09:52:33 AM
I've gotten ads for Netflix, Supercuts, and 3 different ads for Randall's since I logged on just now. Are we only supposed to report ads that get in the way of site links, or anything that isn't craft related? What's with this new system of non-indie advertising?

Nah, dryer lint is worthless. Because it's just tiny pieces and doesn't have any length to it, it won't spin well. I'm sure lots of people will tell you you can card it into a batt for texture, but it will just give you a lint-y yarn that sheds everywhere.

GREAT stuff this week! I havent touched my wheel in too long, this thread is making me want to go spin right this minute.

I only took a photo of one. They are similar, different colors and a little different in size.

Hahaha, at first when I was skimming your post, I thought this statement was about actual penises.

The shorts you make are a great achievement. But, seriously dude, are you in love with your package or what? That is the first thing that pops out (no pun intended)!

But it's like a wonderful bonus! "Those are some nice knitted shorts. ...Oh look! I get to look at a dude's package, too!" I would spend far more time on Craftster than I already do if there were an abundance of package in every shot.

I suspect that part of the problem is getting my hands and feet to work at different speeds. I tend to want to treadle really quickly,

You hit the nail on the head, young Padawan. This is a problem that I struggled with at first, and I'm sure many others as well. You need to get used to sloooowwwww feet until your hands catch up. It's hard to remember, but just keep repeating to yourself, "slow feet, fast hands, slow feet, fast hands!"

There is another way to salvage overspun yarn, (even though it's TOTALLY CHEATING, it will save you from having to ply): After you're done overspinning the whole yarn, attach it to a new bobbin and run it back through the wheel in the opposite direction. Set your wheel for a fast intake so that it sucks the yarn through relatively quickly and it should leave you with a less-twisted single. Just make sure you keep an eye on it and don't let it take out too much or it will break.

I barely made it in on time this week, as usual. Here's a couple new-ish ones:

Thank you thank you thank you for the tutorial! I'm walking out the door to buy masking liquid right this minute. I can't wait to use this technique on my artist trading cards.
