Love everyones yarn! I am always drooling on Fridays after looking at Craftster  Smiley

I spun this up last night, and plied it this morning. I named it Tainted Love because I was listening to 80's music the whole time I was plying. I spun it from some merino roving, and it turned out to be mainly heavy worsted weight. There is about 150 yards total.

I just finished the ant today! It was fun to knit and I really like how it came out. I just used some Cascade 220 I had laying around and it felted up really nicely. The only modifications I made were turning the body around so the big end is the abdomen instead of the head and needle felting on the eyes. You can check out my blog for more info on what I did and more pics. Smiley

I love these! I wish I could have some for myself, but sadly I am terrible at embroidery... Maybe a project like this will inspire me to get better though. Great job and I hope you make/post more of these in the future!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Getting Knit Organized! DPN Cases and Knitting Journal Templates on: May 11, 2007 12:31:09 PM
I wanted to share some handy little things I made not so long ago to help me get organized.

First I designed some double pointed needle pouches to keep all those pesky needles together. I was always misplacing them and it was driving me nuts so I sewed these up. They're really easy to make and don't require any sort of button or snap. I have wrote instructions on how to make pouches for double pointed needles sizes 0-11. They're so handy to have around, and perfect for when you take your knitting with you and only need to bring one set of needles.
I posted a step by step tutorial if you're interested!

The second thing I created was a knitting journal. I wanted something that I could keep expanding as I created more stuff, so I designed six different pages to print and fill out. There are pages for you to fill out information on your FO's, keep track of the yarn in your stash and patterns on your to-do list, and more. You can print out however many you need, slip them into plastic sheet protectors, and organize them into a binder for easy reference. It is really satisfying being able to flip through a book and being able to see all your FO's neatly organized in one place. It works great as a brag book too Wink
I have posted all of the pages, and they're free to download so good luck creating and customizing your perfect knitting journal!

I spun this yarn from some merino I bought off ebay. The colors in are orange, deep purple, and turquoise. I call it Nile. This is my fourth attempt at spinning, and I used my Ashford top whorl drop spindle. It is supposed to be worsted weight but varies between heavy worsted and light worsted.  Wink I spun up 8 oz., this is just one of three hanks I made.

And here is the roving I used

Thanks all! I should have made it earlier because it has suddenly turned beautiful and warm in Boston... I don't want to have to wait all summer to wear it!
