Well, I have made some out of mohair, wool, bamboo, a mini flax attempt, cotton, silk, soy silk, llama, alpaca, and border collie.  I usually make baby hats and such with it as I only have a drop spindle.  I'm not on Ravelry, but I do have an etsy shop: Ladybug Yarns.

but .. but I'm on a yarn diet!  sob.

You should really get a Rav account.  While marketing via the forums there is a faux pas, the link to your Etsy store can be added to your profile.  It's kind of "the place to be" for fiber artists these days.  Wink

Thanks, I'll check it out =).  I have only been spinning for about a year, so I'm new to a lot of things.  I went to my first fiber festival back in May...my poor boyfriend got stuck carrying around about 5 lbs of fiber lol.

I haven't gotten to that point yet lol.  But I have a TON of books, and one day, he looks and goes, "You know, it wouldn't be a bad idea to get rid of some of them."  I looked at him and said, "The books stay.  You can go."  Never came up again lol.

Direct marketing on the big 6 is a faux pas, but there are ways to use Rav as a direct marketing place, including forums where Etsy vendors are encouraged to post their newest wares.  Wink 

My budget is the only reason we still have room to move in the house.  My stash is limited by tiny budget, but I still manage to have ample spinning fibre and yarn to knit.  Which reminds me- today I have got to get back to work on my Haruni shawl.

The title pretty well sums it up. Smiley

What kind of crafty things do you do? Knit? Sew? Scrapbook? Woodwork? All of the above? Something else?

I enjoy scrapbooking, but I haven't done it in a while.  I haven't reorganized since our basement flood.

Otherwise I work with props or sets at our community theater.  duct tape, electrical tape and spray paint...you can do anything.

Don't forget WD-40. With that and duct tape you could rule the world.

True, true.  I tend to forget this because I hang out in a fairly small corner of Rav and rarely venture out.  Except to poke fun at Teh Dramaz.  Wink

I attempted - and believe me it was only an attempt - to take up cardweaving. Bardic made me some lovely cards, I got gorgeous threads, several books and a set of huge clamps to set up my loom.  And then I went and spent two hours in my living room setting up the loom site and straightening the threads and figuring out how to correctly put the threads through the cards to build the set up.

I managed to make about three turns of the cards after the enormous set-up.  And then Onyx, my beloved cat, had had all she could stand and she could stand no more. She pounced into the middle of the loom, hopelessly tangling herself and the threads.

/sigh  The tangled mess is in the closet. I may try again someday, but only in a spot that Onyx can not get into and I've yet to figure out where that would be.  I may try cross-stitch instead, but then the threads will be on my lap when if finally gets to be too much for her and I'll bleed.

I cross stitch and make home-made cards.  Most of the time, I combine the two and make home-made cross stitch cards  Grin  I'm on the lookout for a pagan cross-stitch card themed book if anyone knows of one!  Mostly, they're fantasy themed.

I used to knit when I was younger but haven't done that for ages.

I sew, knit, cross stitch, papercraft, do some calligraphy, paint, used to sculpt and did a bit of wheel throwing...I acquire new crafts by finding an object, falling in love with it, and then saying "hey, I should be able to do that!" and diving in head-first to teach myself.  This gets very expensive if I am not careful  Cheesy Over time I have become the go-to person for handicrafts in my circle, because when in doubt if I can't make something, I probably know at least enough about most things to direct someone to a better authority. My next goal is to learn how to spin.

Drop spinning is super cheap.  My current spindle is made from a dowel, an empty ribbon bobbin with rubber bands around it for weight (held onto the dowel with some fat rubber washers), and a cup hook.  Cost me about a buck-fiddy and spins beautifully.  Smiley

I am not crafty as such, but I do know how to spin on both a wheel and a drop spindle, and I am trying to learn to crochet.
