To Catch a Thread

I have started stitching again. I am currently working on

I am also working on this old WIP.

So recently I have been snipping threads and putting them on the arm of the chair. This always means that they either fall on the floor or need collecting up and putting in the bin.

In a thread on Ravelry someone mentioned the TUSAL where stitcher's collect and keep all the snippets of thread from their projects. I thought this might be fun and the left overs could be used to make a tweedy yarn. Of course, this requires me to be a bit more organised and controlled over thread disposal.

The answer of course was to make a thread catcher. I saw one in real life and they are really nifty.

A little bin that stands up and remains open when waiting for threads.

 

When it is time to put things away a quick twist captures the thread snippets and keeps them safely tidied away. It is a small thing ideally suited for travelling.

The pattern comes from Red Hen Fabric's website.

Phòng ngừa bệnh hoa liễu (STD) hiệu quả bạn cần thực thi một vài điều cơ bản như: giao hoan tình dục an toàn, hạn chế số lượng bạn tình tình dục, nói thật với các bạn tình tiềm năng về lịch sử tình dục của bạn, làm xét nghiệm cùng với một số người tình của bạn trước khi quan hệ tình dục, tránh giao hợp tình dục dưới tác động của rượu hoặc ma túy, nên chích phòng tránh chống u nhú ở người (HPV) hay còn gọi là bệnh sùi mào gà và viêm gan B (HBV). Các bệnh khác cũng nên thận trọng như bệnh lậu, bệnh chlamydia, bệnh mụn rộp sinh dục
Nếu bạn đã được kiểm tra mắc bệnh STD, việc quan trọng là nói với đối tác của bạn. Trung thực về STD khi thăm khám là vấn đề rất cấp thiết.
