After each of our first two Papillons died, I asked the vet to shave them and give us the hair.  I haven't spun it yet, but it's waiting for the right moment.  In the meantime, Joe has two caps made of brown and white yarn (Shiloh and Morpho).  It's a great way to remember a pet.

Who else has spun or plans to spin their pet's yarn?

I may be able to spin with Cricket’s fur but I’d have to save it for a long time. I get such a small amount each time I comb her.

Hi Susan—

Try toilet bowl cleaner with bleach. If that doesn’t work, there is grout “paint” one can buy. I haven’t tried it, but it’s what I would turn to if the cleanser doesn’t work. Good luck!

Thanks for asking! I’m working on an adult version now that is more contemporary but incorporates many of the original design features. I will make the pattern to accommodate various adult sizes.

I don't know about pattern generators, but Ann Budd's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns could help--it includes a set-in sleeve pattern. It would mean knitting (and washing) probably a swatch in the pattern stitch and then lots of other decisions. But if you know your gauge and the sweater circumference (including ease), it's do-able.

Only four people, but a good time.  Three knitters and a spinner.

Jane wore the reversible green sweater she had fitted last time.  Each edge (bottom, front and sleeves) had a slightly different treatment.  She cast off on a moebius cowl.  Moebius have double the stitch count of a regular cowl, and it took foreeever to cast it off.

Lucinda was knitting on two sweaters of two different thicknesses of yarn (at two different times in the meeting).

Joan worked on a very spring-like green sweater - thanks, Joan, we needed the lift which the color gave us.

Shelley carried on the "spinning" of our group's name: the third ply of a shades-of-brown fiber which looked wonderful on the bobbin.

Lucinda showed Jane and Joan how to get started on the miniSpinner - Jane had a new-to-her mS, and Joan hasn't even taken hers out of the box yet.

Conversation was desultory - no strong emotions, no politics.  Just good people and good times.

You know, folks, you really ought to try it here sometime <grin>.
