Thread for knitting/crochet/or anything fibre or textile related. What do you have on your needles/hooks/arms/etc.?

Right now I'm powering through knitting a hat for a friend. I dunno if I'll get it sent to her in time for Christmas though. It's kind of last minute, I wasn't planning on knitting presents until I found out my local yarn place had a sale one.

Well that was odd

I ended up finishing the hat last night, I wanted to spend today weaving ends in and blocking so I can have it mailed by either today or next Monday. Probably won't make it to her by Christmas but oh well

Here it is finished with ends weaved in. It's drying in the kitchen now.

Kinda itching to knit something else now but I'm not going back to the yarn store till after Christmas (or else I'd be broke from all the yarn I want to buy)

Hey /diy/, my friends and I are trying to fix this shocking game/toy thingy (its called Lightning Reaction Reloaded). Basically, we don't know what the fuck were doing. There's a black wire and a red wire that got disconnected and we don't know where to connect it back. Any help?

Heres a picture of the two wires, theyre both in the bottom right corner. Also, I do have soldering stuff but I dont really know how to use it and I feel like spraying hot glue everywhere is more fun

Heres another pic of the circuit. The two white wires were removed also but theyre just for the speaker so we didnt bother with them.
I suspect your two wires are vcc and gnd. Finding a place to connect them should be trivial. Learn how to use your iron, its not that hard.

Anyone here ever volunteer with Habitat for Humanity? I'm in my second year studying Mechanical Engineering and I feel like I'm not doing enough with my life to be the best me and differentiate myself from my peers. Also I feel like I could learn some very useful skills. Do you think it's worth it?

I joined and get the e-mails all the time but have never actually done anything. I really should go but I'm lazy.

I'd say doing anything to help others is always worth it.
habitat for humanity is bullshit, spend your time else where.

When they are not billing full inflated retail prices for donated materials, they are stealing every energy credit or improvement incentive the owner will ever recieve.

and then they will give it to a black single mother with 7 kids who destroy the house in a few years.

I could go on but the point is made and there is google.

just no

can you not tell just from the name it is fake and hypocritical as fuck?

My Dad died a couple weeks ago. I'm his only child so I'm getting his stuff, and today I got his necklace. He had this necklace from when he went to Mexico, supposedly it's gold so I want to sell it, since I don't really have any emotional connection to it. He always wore it, and he had it on when he died. Unfortunately, wasn't found for a few days, so he decomposed a bit.

Now his necklace is all black and tarnished and covered in, I assume, products of him decomposing. I still have it in a medical specimen bag and I'm not gonna take it...

CSI fag. No really, I'm a CSI fag.
Anyway as a body decomposes the body and fluids become acidic. So that burned appearance is from a chemical burn.
I would also expect the acid to etch or eat away some of the gold.
So what do?
First you need to make sure it is no longer a bio hazard, so wash it in a 10% bleach solution and scrub it, wear a mask so you don't inhale that stuff. If it still has a odor then Lysol
I would take it to a jewler to sell as scrap.
Sorry about your dad,
Forgot to mention
As far as the odor goes.
Breath in through the mouth
Out through the nose.
are you sure it's actual gold? cause if it is, chuck it into some HCl. Gold is very unreactive, so the acid will eat whatever else is on it

Do any of you guys have tips on re-skinning a banjo? I'm trying to restore my great grandfather's banjo, and everything is in working order (despite the rust I cleaned off), but the original skin was beyond repair. I ordered a new one, and have watched this vid: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3c54i90Ghk&list=WL&index=1) and intend to follow it if I can't find any better instructions

Never done a banjo, but have done a conga. If you can't find any more sources for banjos, trying looking up drum heads, should be similar.

Anyone here done mold remediation? I'm looking to buy a house but there's mold in the attic. I know I can ask the seller to remedy, but is this something that is putting me off. We know the source and would update ventilation to minimize moisture in the attic, but is there anything else that could cause me pain?

The last thing I want is for it to come back after closing.

Hello people. I bought this switch long time ago from Ebay and im planning to use it but I cant understand how I should install it to the place where I want to put it... it would be logical to screw the surface between two parts but top doesnt come off? Anyone can help?

Well, it is panel mount. The bottom ring with all the teeth on it is the one that you screw on to mount it with.
pull the white bit out further and then the top round bit comes off?

I was fixing a hole in my basement today from another diy project gone wrong. Upon clearing the drywall (brown backed) hole I noticed that some areas that had been chipped had little clear/silver hairs popping out ...it was isolated and maybe in one or two area with maybe a handfull of tiny little strands sticking out. My question is...what the hell are they? It cant be asbestos as this basement was built around 2000...I know nothing about drywall so maybe someone can help?

That is pretty neat.
behance has a lot of good stuff.

I've had this thought for a while of just going off and buying some land and building a small house just to get away from everything. To live almost completely off the grid. I don't need much, just the basics. How would I go about doing this?

Just loosely thinking about it I would require the following:

1. A stable/robust residence. (I'm personally thinking a log house of some kind)

2. Something to generate power. (A bike generator + solar. Know it doesn't generate much, but I don't need massive amount of energy to run lights and a computer, do I?)

3. Something to eat. (Potatoes are easy to grow I hear and can be cooked in a few different ways)

Is this unreasonable to achieve, am I missing something essential?

Please share any tips, tutorials and videos on the subject.

Is a hot and/or cold climate a concern? You might want to plan for that if so.
I live in Denmark so the climate can be kinda cold in the winter, although it's not as bad as most people think. Plus I generally like the cold.

I don't think I would be able to grow much food in winter times, Though.
I would look into canning and preserves then.

Also, ghosts should be a major concern.

I'm looking to start up my own company but I've been trying to find engineers that create camera and they are very hard to find.

I've been suggested to go to camera companies such as Canon or Nixon and ask but why would they give me their engineers?

Any other suggestions?

I want to eventually make my own music using chiptunes. How do I go about this? I don't even know where to start. What are some good resources? I'm guessing I should first start with emulation then move onto using hardware.

Has anybody else here than anything with chiptunes?

I used FamiTracker to do a few "8-bit" covers of a few songs I liked in a "Nintendo" style.

Its simple and easy to use also freeware so that's a plus.

A[art from that if you suck at general composition you can use something like TuxGuitar to get you started on writing in midi and than converting it to shittier midi...I mean chpune.

get yourself a cheap usb midi keyboard and then do the rest in software.
Start by learning 6502 assembly, then write a player routine + tracker for your platform of choice. Or just get famitracker or something, if you want to be boring
