1  Toothbrush Holder. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Wandering Knitter on: February 07, 2006 01:14:23 PM
So I went into my LYS the other day, and the owner gave me an interesting challenge. She had gotten a shipment of Cascade "Fixation" yarn and had NO IDEA what to do with it.

For those who have never seen it, it's a cotton/elastic blend that acts like a rubber band.

After mulling over it I managed to come up with this:

It's a toothbrush holder! It holds my toothbrush!

It used one ball of the yarn, and it completely ignores the elastic part of the cotton!

Go me!

2  My First Needle-Felted Project! in Felting: Completed Projects by Wandering Knitter on: December 15, 2005 12:51:53 AM

It's a d6! Isn't it a cute little fellah? I used some leftover wool I had around and stabbed it with a needle until it was shaped like a dice. And now I want to make more!

And I gotta say, needle felting is great for relaxing! After non-stop finals studying stabbing wool like a mad woman makes me feel great!

3  EWW. in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by Wandering Knitter on: December 07, 2005 11:51:16 AM

I am never, ever, EVER buying roving on eBay again.

Just like it's ebay picture the roving doesn't look so bad now. But if you could see it in RL then you might just get a little sick. The roving is really this sickly yellow-brown color with random streaks of green and neon-orange throughout. The seller said it was a mix of wools to give it a "popcorn" effect. I think it makes it look like it was pulled out of someone's couch.

But I need the spinning pratice so I might as well use it. I'm going to try dyeing this to hell with kool aid and hope for the best.

Wish me luck.

4  Help me make this Scarf! Please! in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by Wandering Knitter on: December 04, 2005 12:22:33 PM

Story time.

I'm part of an International Scarf Exchange at the moment. It's really cool and people should join in the next one ANYWAY! The point is I really, really, REALLY like this scarf someone weaved for the exchange and I would like to learn how to make my own.

So my question is what do I need and what do I need to learn in order to make a scarf like this?

5  My second handspun yarn! WOO! in Spinning: Completed Projects by Wandering Knitter on: December 04, 2005 12:05:49 PM

Look! It's a bad picture of my first skien of yarn!

You don't want to see my first one.

Really. You don't. It'll give you nightmares.

Anyway, I got this lovely little ball of purple and green sportweight yarn and not a single effn' idea what to do with it. Any suggestions?
