Tell us about yourself!
I do have drop spindles and a navajo spindle and I found myself having to carfully wind the yarn around them as I went as well. I think I tried to clip the yarn to it when I wanted to take a break since it does take a bit to twist. I almost wonder it I would have been better off winding it around, say, a large spool and doing it like that. Then you'd get to wind on more yarn as opposed to the cone you end up with on a spindle.Can't remember what I did with it. Probably crocheted liners for the fruit bowl or something.
Cardboard Cat Scratcher
I made this thing awhile ago in anticipation for cats. At first, they didn't know what it was and kept sitting on it. Eventually, they figured out what it was for and they both use it regularly.I ended up duct taping it together instead of gluing it, but it still works. They got their claws stuck in the duct tape the first few uses, though :/

While I don't think I'll make this vest anytime soon (no sewing machine), I'm glad you introduced me to the concept of boro. I have a lot of different things that are too old to really wear or donate but I love the colors. It's more practical than making yet ANOTHER rag rug.

The interior of the bags for the tortilla chips we eat happens to be white, so I washed one out, taped it to cardboard and boom. It's a bit fragile if you try to clean it too vigorously, though.

Wow. This floor looks really cool. I've seen smaller projects coated with pennies, but not an entire floor. Seeing as not many people really use pennies, tiling the floor with them makes sense.
Make You Own Soroban Abacus
Easier than how I made mine. I was broke in college, so I used chopsticks I cut and glued together (there was a sushi place on campus). I'm out of practice, but I figured out how to multiply and divide on it (might've required my 17 row one).

Huh. I like to knit my dishrags personally, but I love the idea of using these for face scrubbies. I'm thinking this'll take up less room, too.
CROCHET SCISSOR COVER
I've done something similar for years. Old sheets, old clothes, whatever. I usually cut the sheets so it don't frey much.
Nevermind. Everything's listed as activities now, including favorites.
Hello. I have a similar problem. I know that I've favorited plenty of instructables but, when I go to click on the Favorites option on the drop down menu under You, all I get are comments I've made. Did a recent update happen requiring me to do something or all my favorites gone?
Probably should've clarified that I meant point proctectors for knitting needles. Bought a few that don't quite fit but they work on these chopsticks for some reason. I was going to glue on the bead but, after a quick sanding, it fits quite snuggly on the end. Might still glue it, anyway.
Handy little trick. I knitted haramaki (belly warmers) a few months ago, but then lost a few pounds. They're too big to fit snugly but not big enough to bother pulling it apart and re-kintting. This is the perfect solution since shawl pins tend to be pricey.
I'm thinking about gluing a large wooden bead or the like on one end to keep it from slipping off. A point protector seems to work for the pointy bit.
Nice color. I used tea. It left a nice brown/orange on it. I kinda like the lighter patches left by how I submerged my shirts.
Yeah, you can't really brush with dreadlocks, but that's okay. The aloe/alcohol mix was mainly a gel, so it was the convenience of a liquid without the fear of getting it in your eyes.
Hmm. Intresting. I remember using aloe gel and wintergreen scented rubbing alcohol back when I had dreadlocks. It was nice for days I didn't feel like wet hair half the day. Didn't realize they sold dry shampoo.
You might be able to find it on-line if no local shops carry it. Amazon has several brands of it. My guess is a natural/organic shop might have it. If a local supermarket has a decent selection of natural products, check there. I found some clays in one near me.

Oh, I do that on a smaller scale. I saved the containers from rubbing alcohol and peroxide and made little shelves for bathroom stuff and storing crayons. I also use salsa jars and corn starch containers to store spice I use a lot of, like thyme and tumuric.Nice to see other people do this as well.
