Ideas and Actions

I finished the ripples socks that look like ocean waves........knit in KnitPicks' Stroll  in the Pacific Tonal colorway.
 And got this idea to use all the different yarns left over from my samples from three years of the Fiber Binder Club!  I am going to make a long scarf using each of the fibers in order of their shipment-so far I have five different fibers done-from the bottom-Corriedale, linen, Border Leicester, Llama and Cormo on the top!  It is fun to whip through the different yarns!
 I added another batch of soap this morning-this one has been on my mind for a while, it just had to wait its turn!   This is scented with lemongrass and lavender with lavender buds in the soap.   It smells incredible in the house;  I can't wait to try it!
I have been dying to make and wear a maxi dress. (Again)  I cut off the top of a women's beater top and added 2 2/3 yard of skirt material and I have a very comfortable and cool lounging dress for myself!
 It was so successful, I have another top to buy fabric for so I will have another!
The truck is loaded up with some girly toddler toys and we will be delivering it tomorrow-stay tuned!

  1. Love the dress!!! It's very pretty. Your "again" comment made me chuckle...even I am old enough now to have seen fashions be "in" again...and it's amusing that each generation thinks they are the first to come up with it!

    Can't wait to smell that new soap!

  3. That is a GREAT idea for the Fiber Binder samples. I was going to use mine in a wall tapestry weaving, but I think I like the scarf idea better.

  4. I see you are in a ripply mood! Those socks remind me of Florida, colors of the ocean and the waves as the water rushes toward shore.

    Great idea for the yarn from the Fiber Binder Club. I need to ask others what they are doing with theirs.

    Oh, someone is going to be a busy little girl when she gets those toys.

  7. Love the dress. WE call those 'tank tops' or 'singlet tops'. I had to look up 'beater tops' and smiled at the explanation! ;-)
