Problem: You have an old celluloid hair comb that has really worn rhinestones. Pouring boiling water to loosen them will destroy the comb. Prying them out may break the comb. If you guys were going to paint over a glass rhinestone, what paint would you use?

The yogurt is a go! I used homogenized, pasteurized (not ultra) whole milk and it turned out fine. Next time I'll try 1%.

I wish the weather front would stop tap dancing on my brain. Ouch.

I figure if I can get the original 8 (for friends) done this week, it'll give me time to do the additions. At least, that's my hope!

Of course, I have ditched my original idea for family, and have to come up with something new... which might end up being next week's sewing time.

Today's experiment: Gradient dyeing yarn. Trying to get a method down that will give good deep color.

Story
Introduction
bio-geek from the southern US. First fell in love with yarn during a seventh grade weaving project (that project is still hanging in my craft lair). I learned to crochet later on that same year. During college I pick up the spinning habit and participated in a sheep to shawl. Later on I taught card weaving (thus spreading the infection) to others. A couple of years ago I learned to knit. Lately I’ve taken up hand painting yarn.
