3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need Book for funky yarn how to, does anyone know of one? on: December 22, 2006 10:17:04 AM
I have and enjoy both books, though you don't need to have both.  I would say that they both contain the same techniques but are presented in different ways.  Pluckyfluff's book is more visual and inspirational while the other, spinning designer yarns, is not nearly as beautifully presented but has very clear and technical instructions.  SDY is also a bit thicker as it contains info on straight spinning and dyeing. 

So, both are great, which way do you learn better?

oh, great question!  I'm eager to hear people's answers!  This was actually one of the reasons that I started spinning.  I get all my fiber from 3 farm sactuaries and 2 family farms so I can say it's humane but I'd love to know about commercial yarn companies!

you guys are so much fancier than me.  I put it in a large ziplock bag and then pack it in ian nside out trader joe paper grocery bag.  I feel like i'm recycling a bit and they can re-use the ziplock.  anyway, that's what i do and haven't had a problem yet.

Would you look at that!  Not only a finished object, but a finished object that I absolutely love!  I knit this with the Sexy knitters KAL.  It was a simply delightful pattern to work, my first in lace, in fact.  The pattern was easily memorized and was interesting yet mindless enough to knit while enjoying season 1 of Galactica on DVD.  I used the rec'ed yarn, 4 balls of rowan 4-ply in a color most-not-me tutti-fruitti. But forget about how easy and fun it was to knit, how brilliantly simple the construction was, and instead just look how cute I look!  hehe.

also, not to be a total attention hound, but I've got a new podcast!  the link is in my sig!  wanna listen?

Here's what my busy little hands did last night, orangina, for the sexy knitters KAL.    I'm using, for the first time in my short knitting career, the rec'd yarn -- Rowan 4-ply cotton.  The color is tutti-friutti and we'll just have to see about that.  So far I love knitting it, it's my first lace, really.  The stitch pattern in fun and easy, after 2 repeats I no longer needed to look at the paper.  I've two concerns so far, one -- that although I purchased the right amount of yarn, I'll run out before I make it just a  tad longer than the pattern calls for, and two -- that the lacework is open enough, pinkie's gonna make an appearance.  Do other people wear something under this?  Well, at least the colors are about the same, pinkie will blend.

I'm knitting a size small, which is a bust size of 36".  I've always been about a 34" but lately I've had a bit of what I thought was heartburn but really was a too-tight bra, so now I guess I'm a 35".  So I'm knitting a 36" but my guage is a bit tighter than the pattern's so it should (I hope, I hope) work out.  I didn't want to cast on 9 more for the next size up because I thought that would be too big.  Right now, with a CO of 112, it measures 17.5" inches, which would make it exactly 35" around.  Should be perfect...right?

i'm knitting this right now! I love it!  I've got the back, fronts done and am currently working on the hood (i changed the pattern a bit so that the shoulders are joined with a 3 needle bind off and the hood is picked up, the cable continued up around the hood without a bindoff).  After the hood I've only got the arms left!  oh, plus all the finishing and zipper - yikes!

It's super cool and I really can't wait!
