Hello, and welcome!  Smile  So glad you found us!

Wow, you do everything!  That's so fantastic, and I'm jealous.  Smile

I've thought of spinning cat fur, and yes, also dog fur (though I would have to get the dog fur from others).  Now, practical experience I don't have, sigh, so I'm not the right person to advise you.  But I've read about spinning dog/cat fur, and it can be done, though there are probably different conditions that apply to different other words, some fibers may be too short to spin well or some may be too coarse or soft to work.  But that's just a guess.  Undecided

I don't see any reason not to experiment.  Smile  Speaking as a cat lover, how wonderful is the idea of having something made from the yarn from your special little (or not so little) furry one?  Kiss  Realistically, I probably only have enough fur for the smallest of cowls, perhaps, but the very idea is wonderful!  (LOL, and I'm not sure if I'd enjoy spinning, either...though at some point, I'll just suck it up and deal, because I want to make something fun!  Smile)

Hope that helps...I'm sorry I have no level of expertise, but I'm loving the idea of you being able to make something from your dog's lovely, soft fur!  Kiss

Sorry for my delay in replying.. But THANK YOU Terry..Fantastic. Smiley



I posted one FREE soap making how-to book (part of a bundle with other skin care recipes) for Kindle for today...if you're interested, please grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for "how to" ebook content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make a how-to book kind of difficult to read.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):


If it says that in the standards, then a judge shouldn't be able to rule a snow nose a fault!  That's so unfair.  Frown

I think a snow nose is adorable!  Kiss

Oh, pppptttthhhhbbbbb to that judge.  He should have disqualified himself as a judge if he was unable to fairly judge.  Ugh.  Frown

With a P hook, I'm getting 3.25 st per inch (forgot to mention that earlier), so they are larger and have the look of loose knit. The cables really "pop" too.

I've put the scarf aside for now, until the fuzziness and headache subside, but when I pick it back up I'll measure the rows.

Since I don't really want to work on anything complicated, I decided to make TKS swatches with different sized hooks to demonstrate how forgiving it is. Smile

You know how I hate swatching, but I think this is an important point to make.

Thank you for the healing energy. Kiss I'm pretty sure it's not that nasty swine flu that's going around, had that back in the 70's so I think I'm immune to that one. Wink
