SPINSTERS CLUB THIS SUNDAY!
Sunday, June 29! 1pm!
Finally, we’re back in action! I can’t wait for the much-need fiber camaraderie and inspiration. I’ve had the blahs all month. This month’s meeting is a double threat. We’re doing our main spinning at Alpacas in Wildcat Hollow (Marta’s place), then descending on Jennifer Schermerhorn’s (of Whirled Yarn fame + Yarn School teacher) new yarn & spinning store, Settler’s Farm. RSVP & I’ll give you directions to Marta’s. Newcomers are always welcome, so if you’re in KC/Topeka/Lawrence/Manhattan, join us!
I can always bring a couple extra wheels & spindles. Gimme a heads up if you need me to grab you some. (I just got 2 new spindles thanks to mikewade’s drop spindles set.)
In other news, what the heck should I make of this? (got there from a friendly heads up from a nice lady on ravelry).
I don’t mind that she copied my design in crochet (nothing wrong with making your own version of things) or that she’s selling them, but that she’s totally pretending it was her idea!
“My next pillows are going to be plain janes. But I came up with this guy first so I had to make him.”
It’s not like it’s an ipod cover or a pillow or something totally natural for 50 people to make the same way. It’s a freaking SEX TOY HOLDER shaped like an OWL with a HIDDEN COMPARTMENT that closes with DRAWSTRING LEGS. Not one drop of “my version of…” or “inspired by” or anything like that, just patting herself on the back for coming up with such a clever idea. The brass!
What do you even say to that? I mean, should I email this person? Weird.
Speaking of crochet, I’m making some underpants for my Flip video camera. When they’re done, they’ll be more like overalls, I’m guessing, but for now:
