1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Glaistig on: May 30, 2007 05:08:28 AM
So making this from http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain06/glaistig.htm served a three-pronged purpose:

1. Gift for a dear friend - her birthday is this Friday, and she is also with child (18 weeks!!)
2. Plough through the stash
3. Not spend a cent, on yarn or packaging. (background; I am on a major frugality kick, since New Year's, which I'm proud to say has brought me out of debt and turned me into a tightfisted bore.)

Thankfully, J. will never know, right, because she doesn't visit this forum, and you won't tell her, right? Right!

Here is the hat perched atop my stunned mug, with no prizes for my photographic or mirror-cleaning skills:

I was unsure about how I was going to present Glaistig, but then it occured to me - I had some plastic Chinese style takeaway containers I could use:

From there, I don't know but it went something like this - brown yarn - soil - pot plant - knitted leaves and flowers - i cord - African violets:

Now I'm finishing up some items for Baby D, stash only again. So, to end this post on a twee note, as one of your presidents said, Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Amen.
