1371  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 2...gallery! on: June 28, 2006 05:39:55 AM
you're welcome Mieka  Grin, hope you like the polar pals!!

...all you need to learn to do is 'single crochet' which is honestly the easiest stitch in the world!!
here's a link to instructions:http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_singlecrochet.htm .. to learn with it's best to use a light coloured chunky yarn, and a large crochet hook,   ...and if you get stuck just message me and i'll try and help :-)

I received this week  Grin

I Just love this swap! - Bonzo Spangly and Ezri B both sent to me this week  Smiley

Bonzo Spangly sent me a surprise! - two lovely pairs of earrings to match the necklace and bracelet she sent me in May's swap, I'm really pleased with them and have worn them already!

Here's the rainbow of Koolaid (I can even spell it now!!) from Ezri B, can't wait to get dying with this!
..Notice the customs tape, they couldn't resist a little peek to check what colours i will be dying my yarn!!

Thanks EzriB and Bonzo Spangly  Grin .. I've been having a really hard time the past few weeks and your packages have really brightened up my week, thanks xx

To celebrate this I'm offering a free patern to my next customer!


So i'm gonna do a buy one get one free for my next cuxtomer who will be buying the 100th pattern i've sold on Etsy!!

All you have to do is buy one of my amigurumi crochet patterns on Etsy and I will send you free of charge another pattern of your choice ( equal to or less than the value of the pattern you pay for, so choose your two favourite patterns, click to buy and pay for the dearst pattern and message me to let me know your second choice and i'll email them both to you within 24 hours)

1375  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Neckline too big on my finished sweater. Ideas? on: June 26, 2006 09:36:57 AM
Great jumper, did it take long to make?  .. I'd crochet around the neck too, that or knit a few rows of rib
1376  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / White Tussah or Bombyx Silk Roving, which is best for a beginner spinning silk? on: June 25, 2006 10:09:07 AM

I'm new to spinning and i want to buy some silk to spin but I, foolishly! presumed there would be only one or two variations available!  White Tussah and Bombyx Silk Roving and noils are just a few of the varieties i've seen so far

I'm hoping to produce something similar to fyberduck's gorgeous spun silk:

So please, please if anyone has any tips on what type of silk is best to learn on, and tips on dying and spinning silk, -for a complete beginner, I'd be very grateful  Grin Thank you

I can't seem to open the links to the silk on the woodland site, i'll try again later :-)  .. in the meantime i've been looking on ebay and was amazed it all the different types of silk!! I thought there'd only be one or two to choose from!!
1378  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: the graduation spinning epic on: June 22, 2006 01:05:14 AM
Ok, that's it i'm sold on the idea  Grin

I'm armed with packets of Koolaid, mom's got a spinning wheel ...so can anyone recommend where's the best place to  buy silk to dye??

thank you  Smiley

I just love your yarn, that's the first handspun silk i've seen, looks yummy!

I've bookmarked this page ....PLEASE come back and post the things you make with the yarn, i'd really love to see them :-)  ...what's a multidirectional scarf?? - it sounds interesting, is it knit, crochet , weave, or other?? :-)
