I am glad that I am not the only one that crochets like mad for short periods. The black and pink one is my favorite, but they all look great. *robyn

44  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:Non-animal yarn help on: April 19, 2004 04:02:28 PM
I totally agree about synthetic fabics and I do try to avoid them. I started this thread with the hope that you guys and gals could offer some great alternatives to the yarns that I currently rely on.

To clarify my philosophy, I try to avoid all products that exploit animals. I do realize that wool can be aquired humanely, but after some extensive reading on the Australian wool industry I can't buy wool in good conscience (if you want more information please visit www.woolisbaad.com). I might however buy recycled wool or unravel old sweaters.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread and please keep the ideas coming. *robyn

I just bought the SNB book and it is so fabulous. I noticed that most of the patterns called for wool yarn and I am a vegan so iI don't buy wool yarn. Does anyone have suggestions for non-animal yarn that knits well and looks great, I am rying to expand my horizons. Thank you. *robyn

You can get unworking keyboards and pop off the keys for some fun place cards or you can pop off the keys and put them back on in any order you want to make a sign.

I wish that I could rememer to take before pictures of my roadside finds, that would be a really cool thing to look back on. I live in a neighborhood that has a fair amount of college students and every May is dumster diving season because they all move out and leave behind a pleathera of stuff for me to find. It's way better than Christmas!! *robyn

Paper rolls are great for sprouting plants. This is not really a crafty use for the rolls, but it is pretty practicle.

1. Cut rolls into 3-4" sections.
2. Put four 1" slits in one end and fold the flaps over to create a bottom.
3. Put duct tape on the outside to seal the bottom.
4. Fill the tube with soil and plant your seed.
5. Keep the seed moist so that it can sprout and develop a root sysem.
6. When your plant is ready to pot simply remove the tape and put the entire thing in your pot. The cardboard will biodegrade and your plant will grow.

I bought a bunch of cool old ties at a thrift store to make tie cuffs. I could make 2 cuffs with each tie, one from each end. Unfortunately, four of the ties I bought were 70's style with the really wide ends and I couldn't make cuffs with those ends so instead I made little change purses and glasses cases. I think that I am going to save all of the tie centers and make a quilt.
