Inspiration without application is moot.

Oh wow musiclady. I am feeling proud of myself for being on my fourth pair of socks, forget sixth.  Wink

How do you like the feel of those rainbow socks? I have just finished a cowl from that yarn and it seems like it would have no memory or give.  But lots of people are making socks from it. And it is both so pretty and so nice and cool to the touch. Great for summer socks.

Fiiiiiinally, pics! Nothing very interesting, but at least it's proof!

First off, number 40, the starghan!

Full post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=382750.0

No. 41, Front garden, done!! I don't have any before pictures, but trust me - total 'Shameless' scene - I was totally embarrassed!


No. 43 - Adult learners week at work - we made crochet flowers! Interestingly shaped, 'exotic' flowers, but flowers nonetheless! and it to say it was their first time ever doing anything remotely like that, I was quite proud of them!


I don't have any pics of no.30, home made stamp, as it was reaaaaally hard to take a picture of!

There are also no pics of No. 42 yet, as although the whole house may be painted, it's CERTAINLY not unpacked, so I'm not quite prepared to share the chaos, lol!

And finally, the reason why crafting has been going sooo slow - I'm tacking the main jungle - slowly slowly digging up the back garden, primarily to get the veggies in quick before it's too late - you can see the pegged out square on the second pic. It's so so hard going - I think there's enough bricks and glass in the garden to build a second house!!!
Jungle before (also before rain - the nettles were past shoulder height when i was chopping them down!!)


And mid progress: will count this as a project, but only when its a lot closer to finished


I'm off now to check my list to see if there's anything I feel like tackling - I seem to have lost my crafty mojo at the moment - think it's not having all my stuff EXACTLY as I want it  Cry

lozzieozzie, that starghan is AWESOME!


rottenlittleboys, the yarn was ok.  Not much stretch at all, made the heel a bit difficult.  I thought I was going to break my needles!  But the yarn is so soft!  Smiley  I have more of it because I got it on sale, but I'm not sure that I will be making it into socks.  Or if I do, I might do them at a bit looser gauge.  We'll see.

I celebrated International Yarn Bombing Day today (Which was on my list)

Here in my neck of the woods in Maine the only way to do this right is on the back of a Kubota  Tongue I did my street sign so I could monitor it.

International Yarn Bombing Day??  I had no idea that this even existed.  I like that you yarn bombed your street sign.  That's awesome. Cheesy

Thank You Smiley It's actually the first annual holiday so it's not widely known yet. It was also World Wide Knit in Public Day, but I had a Lobster Cookout to attend so I didn't get to be out in public really.

How was it difficult? I find most varieties of felt to be a pleasure to work and embroider with.

Felt is so versatile and so darn cute!


I worked with felt for the first time this week....so painful. Is there an easy way to embroider it?
Trying to embroider straight on it, I could not get nice neat wording no matter how hard I tried. I used various strands of floss. Do you need to use a stabilizer? Should I have used a tapestry needle instead of a normal needle?
I don't have anywhere near this much trouble with the fabrics I usually use
I haven't had any problems with it, either. I just do a normal stitch--whatever stitch I want to do, and using a normal needle. I haven't had any trouble. Was the felt really low quality? What problem were you having? Was the floss pulling through or something? I always use felt from Michael's and it's usually pretty good quality and doesn't give me any trouble.

When I put the needle through & thought it was in straight line under the first stitch it would end up to one side. It wasn't very thick either. I think it was just really bad quality. We don't have a Michael's, Spotlight is pretty average & they'd be the biggest craft store, I think there's a riot near me though, but they din't have much.

Skittlebub, do you have a Lincraft nearby? Their felt is more expensive than Riot's but I guess you get what you pay for.

I decided to make a second Pillowcase Nightgown.  You can find more pictures here.
