This Yarn Everyday challenge has totally revved up my interest in spinning. I usually go through each of my fiber-interests in phases. Knit a lot for awhile, design a few things, weave for weeks on end, etc. Well, I’ve been in a knitting phase recently, but having to spin a little everyday has allowed me to have my attention focused on more than one thing at once! I’ll do a big photo retrospective at the end of the month, but today, after spinning the same natural-colored alpaca for almost two weeks, I got three full bobbins and got ready to ply.

Imagine my surprise when I realized that I’d never done a regular 3-ply before! So I set myself up a quick lazy Kate with a cardboard box and some 14″ metal needles. How much do I have? 171 yards. How do I know? I just did the mini skein using the elbow method. If I had 16 ounces, or 1 pound, that would be 288 yards. From my 40 ounces I should end up with about 720 yards, which should be plenty for a nice big blanket! Like this: Permalink. DIY Cardboard T-Shirt Folding Device: 7 steps.

DIY Collapsible Cardboard Pet Carrier. Anyone who's ever tried to transport a sick or wounded animal in a small automobile can fully appreciate the usefulness of a pet carrier. However, because such a device is likely to be needed only infrequently, many folks are reluctant to acquire one (after all, the cages can be expensive to buy and bulky to store). Well, here's a solution to that problem! The carryall described below is a collapsible cardboard pet carrier — it can be disassembled and folded flat for easy storage, and is lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to build. The "pet case" is constructed from the sort of cardboard that has a single layer of corrugation between two face veneers.

(The best source of this material is probably a large, discarded box, such as those that major appliances are delivered in. The carrier is held together by ten 1 1/4"-long, two-pronged brass paper fasteners, which are available at office supply stores. Once that's done, it's time to make fastener holes in the side panels.
