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.
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
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?
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?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>916056 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,
Not sure if I should put this here or in /mu/. 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
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?
>>916000 its identically same size as the top ring that doenst come off.. I dont understand how I can screw it to the panel that way. I have other that is like this and its 100% clear how to install it because everythign comes apart :)
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?
>I'm new to electronics, where do I get started? There are several good books and YouTube channels that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more, many with advanced techniques. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

hey im a carpenter interested in quirky designs and i came across a piece today by Sebastian Errazuriz called the wave cabinet and im quiet amazed and would love to make it i get most of its design and could probably guess the rest but i want to know for sure how its done.
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.
>c-can I have your engineers, please? >No. ..why? indeed.
>any other suggestions? - suggest explaining, what you are trying to achieve? And if its Top Secret, Hush_HUsh, AboutToBePatented™, etc. - then, good luck, as your secret shall (most probably) die with you.
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?
