What Dorothy said is true….There is no place like home….
I am knitting on 3 shawls and a sweater. And have a quilt that I’m still looking for more fabric prints for. Also doing some spinning. Hope everyone is well, I’ve missed reading what everyone is creating!
Until then, check out this new Knitty Spring/Summer 2013!!
Five fun links….
-I like this idea of monograming your own mugs, Hey and Valentines day is coming up. Thanks Design Mom!
-I love reading Threadbanger! Here she has found a tutorial on making a cuff watch out of a mens shirt!
-Sneezerville teaches us how to unravel a purchased sweater, find some great yarn in a bad sweater? Turn it into a beautiful item with a little work.
-Print your own calender with Sofia’s World! Free and pretty too, get organized!
-How about sewing a Memory quilt with Todera, use some of your memory filled fabric or clothing.
-And I couldn’t resist this one, make some Monster Spray for your little one.
Knit Fast, Dye Yarn

I was making several plant hangers for my plants to save space (see post here with free crochet plant hanger patterns). I ran across this YouTube video from JoeyFingis. I though it was interesting that he up cycled a 2 liter pop bottle into a planter with a water run off reservoir using a water bottle, and made a acrylic crochet plant hanger to hang it with. I think the idea is stellar. Check it out!
I thought this would be good for starting seeds, and cuttings for plants. Which started me thinking about all kinds of things.
I’m ready for spring, and definitely going to try this, let me know if you do!!
