During the time I wasn't painting, I worked at a few quick projects. Michael's has cotton yarn on sale again this week so I picked some up on Friday night to make some Swiffer cloths.
I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton in 'Love', 'Green Dream', and 'Poppy'.
A few months ago I discovered a set of crochet videos on You Tube. Donna has a website as well, where you can see all of her projects and they are linked up to her videos.
The infinity scarf project using ruffle yarn really caught my eye. Instead of unravelling the yarn, you just treat it like a really bulky yarn and use a large crochet hook. I bought an 'S' size hook on Friday night, and used it with this yarn I got on clearance for $2 at a local yarn shop.
I bought two skeins and used both of them up to get this:
I really like it! It's not too bulky at the back of the neck and it isn't heavy either. I have a lunch to go to on Wednesday and have the perfect jacket to wear with it. Not bad for $4!
I also made some good progress on my sewing desk, but I will wait to show you that when it's all finished. It has warmed up considerably here and it really feels like Spring will make her debut sometime in the near future. Until then, thanks for visiting!
