1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / lacy camera strap on: May 28, 2012 09:03:36 PM
I've had my DSLR camera for several months now, and it's always frustrated me how short the neck strap was that came with it. Finally after months of putting off buying a new strap for it, I decided to make one... can't be that hard, right?

So here it is, my new and improved (and plenty long enough) camera strap.
(please disregard the dog hair on my couch... it's a constant battle which I am losing at the moment)




I used the Queen Anne's Lace scarf pattern with a much smaller hook than recommended for the yarn to make it a little smaller and sturdier, and two little clasps that I found in a bag of key chain rings. I would've liked to be able to show it actually attached to the camera, but I couldn't figure out how to take a picture of the camera, with the camera.

2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / recycled fibers on: March 17, 2012 11:06:23 PM
So I had a crazy idea while cleaning out my closet the other day. I found the prom dress that my grandmother made for me my junior year.  It's a huge purple confection that I have never worn again (nor ever will, as I've lost about 40 lbs since high school) I've seen what several of you talented people have done with sari silk and recycled sweaters, and I think I'd like to try to use the dress fibers to spin into yarn for a gift for her, if it's even possible. I think the dress is silk blended with something or other, its been so long that I have no idea what it's made of.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
