These are pretty spectacular ideas, thank you!!! I only have one spindle for the wheel so I'm worried I might mess that up, BUT I suppose I can always was that off too...I also never thought about dying it. They are pretty dark fleeces but what have got to lose!?!?!?!

Also thanks for the drying suggestion, it'll be pretty hot for the next few weeks here in Oregon so a sheet outside might do the trick ;)

Last summer I was given fleece from 3 Alpacas, I cleaned about 1/2 ounce and then summer was over and it was time again to go back to school and forget about my hobbies. Now graduated, I need to process the fleece...Is there a shorter, faster, less-patience-required way to pick through fleece?

I have looked online and I found a fleece spinner-I'm not going to invest in one or build one, but would anything else work the same? I was thinking some chicken wire or something stretch over a wooden frame, but won't the fleece fall through that? ANY suggestions are helpful! :)

I don't like using the magic loop but I feel that if I started using it on my socks, I may actually, one day, finish my other sock so I can experience the same sublime described here...

I am slowly changing my entire needle collection to Bamboo. I love them! the Yarn doesn't slide of like it does on the metal ones and it's a quicker/smoother knit than on the plastic ones. I started by buying a pair of size 9 (I use those the most), and then just used them for anything that needed a size 9. Good luck!

Hello! I am sort of new here as well. I don't crochet, but i have knitted a bunch of those headbands and I would assume crocheting them in the same sort of way would be easy.

I used this link and then I learned how to crochet a huge flower on youtube. Plus I just saw that there is a crochet version at the bottom of the page :)

It does look very nice! I like the furry look.

Thanks for the link for the Christmas Stockings. I, too, am doing a craft fair in Nov. Hope to have time to make some of these. I am presently crocheting, knitting, and sewing doll clothes. Also making Bed dolls and soft sculptured dolls. Very busy, but happy. Joyce

Sewing kits jars are little 4 or 8 oz canning jars filled with some thread, buttons, needles, safety pins, etc... There are ways to make them super cute. When I start on them tonight, I'll post some pictures :)

This is so fantastic, I wish life would get out of the way so I can get busy knitting!

Yeah, I like the stocking idea too, the pattern looks easy enough to finish in a flash. I live in Oregon so we have the two big college teams osu beavers and uo ducks that compete every year. that would be a big seller!

Hello All!!! I am going to have my very first table at a bazaar in November. I have a small stash of hats, wrist warmers, and scarves and of course a large stash of washcloths. I will also be putting together little sewing kit jars. But I want more! ;-)

I have work and school so I am looking for some quick knits that might sell well at a bazaar (I really don't even know what sells at bazaars). If you have any ideas or suggestions or links, it would be appreciated!

lovely pattern, I am sure it looked great. BUT I would've torn it apart too. I have attempted a lace scarf 4 times...still haven't gotten it right. I am sure you'll have it done in no time, Good luck and my tears are with you.
