Knitting with Dog Hair

We heard a neat piece on NPR's Soundprint about knitting with dog hair.It's an overview of the history and process of knitting with dog hair, mixed with a bit of personalizing historical fiction. Definitely a good listen if you've ever considered turning your dog's sheddings into something useful.

will "anti-graying" hair mousse work to dye hair? Answered

Hi again everyone despite many questions i STILL can't find a way to dye my blond-brown-white-ish hair black! (yes, it did fade back after the chocolate brown incident..) i have naturally multi-colored and highlighted hair and don't want to lose that from staining or using permanent dye. recently, while in a cosmetics store in a desperate attempt to find a dye, i found a "anti-graying" mousse for covering gray patches in hair, which claimed would rinse out with shampoo. will this work to dye a full head of thick, multi-colored hair or will it stain/look ridiculously fake? and does mousse amke your hair go hard like hairspray or make it clump together, stays wet, etc should i buy it and try it out on a small section of one of the white-ish highlights and see if it does work? (if it doesn't, i'll have only dyed less than an inch and will simply cut it off) or is it as simple as i can't dye my hair black? thank you instructables :D

Uses for cat hair (and boredom)

Something I always wanted to do was learn to spin yarn. So, I looked up online how they appeared, and made a spinner from an old hard drive, a paintbrush handle, a bread board, and another doo-hickewy, and set off.. First, I must say, I now know what it feels like to have a hairball)... From the photo, you can see that I have much more practice, if only I could bear eating Petromalt) My cats fur is short, and I had saved a container, which I had in the freezer for some time...

Possibility of making temporary hair colouring?

Hello there, I've always wanted to dye my hair grey but didn't want to go through the hassle and the possible hair damage of bleaching.  I came across someone selling chalk sticks for temporary hair colouring and was wondering if a cheaper, liquid version could be made to cover all the hair instead of a small part. My initial idea was to use calcium carbonate and grey food colouring with maybe a little bit of talcum powder which will then be mixed with some water so it can be applied easier. These are the ingredients in the colouring I want to use: glycerol, propylene glycol, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, vegetable carbon  Is there anything here I should be concerned about? As I'm going for a grey colour I was also looking at using a small amount of activated charcoal or some other skin safe fine black powder. Is this the best way or are there better alternatives? Advice will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Building a hair thin Mini hot tip (like soldering)

Building a hair thin Mini hot tip (like soldering) Building a hair thin Mini hot tip (like soldering) Well as you read it I am trying to build a very very small heat controllable mini hot tip (max 40 degrees C) And definitely I am sure you are such an expert in the area that the hair hot tipwill sound like a joke to you. What for? well, long story short I want to put bacteria samples on it & gradually increase the temperature and see how the populations die or survive, and most likely how long they last, to demonstarte if actual dishwashers do a good job. (maximum temp boiling point) I actually want to record the video given to the fact that the microscope I have access at school is wayyyy more powerful than the rest. I know I should use an LED or just heat but what prevents me from doing so is just blowing away the samples from the tip or changing the exposure too much with extra lights. I believe the principle is almost the same as with the coil inside electric bulbs or the same as in ironing clothes but not as hot (in orders of magnitude) I believe the trick is driving voltage and just making variations to it with a dial please help I really want to see those bacteria and film them . All help will be appreciated Thanx Micro Freak apprentice

Do you cut your own hair? Also: great success!!!

I don't. I typically just go in for a little trim and that's it. I never fiddle with it myself... until tonight! I was finishing off the bottle of white wine I had to buy for my Cuban Xmas dinner (this sounds worse than it really is - I was mostly drinking the inch at the bottom, don't want that $8 to go to waste...), and suddenly got the bright idea of cutting some bangs. Alcohol and scissors might not sound like the best idea, but I think I did fine considering the circumstances. :D After stalking a couple of users on youtube briefly to see how others avoided butchering their hair, I found myself in the bathroom with a nice pair of fabric scissors hacking off hair. Maybe not hacking. Deliberate cutting, actually. And success! Well, after a half hour of fiddling and trimming off a half inch at a time. So do you cut your own hair? What do you use to do it? I'm curious whether DIYers are more likely to do this and not fail (possibly). Pictures? :D

Dog Hair Sweaters from Deceased Pets
