Peaceful Activities


I had the pleasure of weaving four tote bags ; now to tie off the fringe and sew them up.

One fingerless glove done using the lace pattern from the socks I completed.

Said socks waiting for their dye bath.  I am going to try to put them on a form and then spot dye them instead of using an immersion bath.  That is the plan for today anyway!

When we went to town yesterday, we bought a replacement for our printer and the scanner-I reduced 4 cords down to 2 and have a delightfully easy new copier/scanner/printer!  I almost went crazy untangling the mass of cords doing this but now they are all labeled, organized and neat.  (I realize this will be a tempory fix because  like Christmas tree lights, they do become mysteriously tangled up while they lie inert!)

  1. I love the bags, could you do a tutorial on how you sew them up. I'd really love to see it.

  2. Nice work!! Lots of soon-to-be finished totes! (What do you do with them all?)

    The socks came out great - and I look forward to your adventures with dyeing!

    Good plan to make fingerless gloves with that lace pattern - that will show it off even more!

    I love my printer/scanner! Hope you'll have good luck with yours too!

  3. Productive again! Sooooo, why dye the socks and not just knit them with that color yarn?? Just curious since I am not a knitter.

DIAMONDS

I had so much fun making a coaster from the Diamond Dotz kit.  A very relaxing way to spend an hour! I also whipped up another Shop Hop Bloc...
