1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What would you do with reel-to-reel tape? on: April 12, 2012 12:39:16 AM
My boyfriend has been doing some massive cleaning and purging recently, and today decided to discard three reels (approximately 4.5 miles) of two inch audio tape that's no longer any good for recording, but being the good little packrats that we are, neither of us can quite bear to throw out that much tape... the idea being, there must be something crafty that can be done with it...  short of wallpapering the walls with it, I'm having trouble finding ideas for it. 

As you can see, one side is shiny and the other side is matte, and it's a fair bit more durable than what you'd find in your average household cassette tape.

Any thoughts?

I also noticed that The Elegant Ewe in Concord is running a beginner spinning class on October 21st and 28th: http://elegantewe.com/class.php?id=97

I figured I'd post this over here just in case anyone's interested, but there is a stitch 'n bitch type group in Manchester that meets regularly on Wednesdays at Barnes & Nobel called ManchVegas Knitting, though there are some crocheters and others in the mix. They've got a mailing list too: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ManchVegasKnitting/

I've only been once because Wednesday is a bad time for me, but I figured I'd mention it in case some other NH craftsters were free. They're a nice bunch.

Hey Craftsters!  I live in Franklin and recently got my first spinning wheel.  I thought about taking a class but they are sooooo expensive($150-$275 for one class, plus you have to bring your own materials!).  Is there anyone near by that would be willing to help a new spinner out?  I could probably work out some sort of crafty trade Grin...

I know this post is like 7 months old now, but I was wondering... Did you ever get the hang of it? I spin with a spindle, but I took a class down at The Fiber Studio in Henniker, it's not a class they run all the time, but if you can catch it, it was only $80.

I would velcro the bow. That way you can make interchangable velcro thingies to match your mood...sometimes you dont always want a bow  Grin

Either velcro or snaps.... (I personally would probably go for snaps). It looks great! I love plaid! Cheesy

I actually used sportweight on mine (as a twisted turn of fate my hubby bought the yarn on a whim and it was the exact yarn this pattern calls for.... I almost *never* use the recommended yarn!) I have a bunch of balls of worsted that I'd like to make into Odessa so I'm curious how it turns out in worsted weight...  I used a size 4 circular to start it out and then switched to size 6 dpns.

I hadn't either before stumbling onto this pattern... I think it works well because with a self-striping you don't want to do lots of complex patterny stuff but at the same time it makes a little more interesting than just making a boring old sock.
