DIY Halloween Knit “That Lady with the Pink Hair Curlers” Hat Pattern from Knitting Board Chat. This uses a loom to knit (like this instructables’ tutorial herre). Or you can buy a hat in a hair color you like, get cheap yarn to match the hat and pick up foam rollers for abut $1 to $2.

i just can’t get enough. soft handspun bamboo is combined with raw alpaca fibers and polished brass for a mod, unique and intense geometric art piece. swoon.

Handspun attempt #2: My second attempt is still a lot lumpier than I would have liked. I’m not positive about the fiber content, but it was dyed by Gale’s Art and is about 82 yards/1.8 ounces. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, but it’s really soft!

Is an intervention necessary? It appears that for every orange, yellow or red skein I dye, I must make 4500, I mean 3 blue and green or blue or green skeins. Clearly, there is a bias. So, let’s shake it up a little, what color(s) would be fun to see come out of the dye pot?

Seen above (from the top down) English Garden (this is new and seen here on Fiona) Fern Gully (also new, but up and on Splendid) and of course, the seasonal sensation, Witch’s Teeth on Tweedy.

So, as I said, let’s play, let’s shake it up a little, what color(s) would be fun to see come out of the dye pot?
