But first ...
Check this out! Hats for Homeless. It's my new Pinterest board. :)
When I started knitting on the looms, I had no idea what to do to with all the hats I wanted to make. I had no clue that in a few years I'd be hoarding huge amounts of yarn in various places around the house: the garage, the guest room ... oh my gosh, the poor guest room!
|The fate of all knitters.|
I plan to have that board be devoted to two things: 1) easy things that can be done craftily, and 2) my learning of the art of crochet. To make more hats, of course. I worry about my precious metal hooks (for the looms) being taken from me at airport security, so I've got some rather large, plastic crochet hooks that I want to be able to use on a plane to pass the time. (Idly reading and pretending to be asleep just aren't working for me.) I'll get some basic sewing stuff up there eventually (probably after I hit "publish" on this post), but if any gentle reader has a suggestion for things to pin, send me a link, by all means!
Don't be surprised if the board is named "Purl of Great Price" by the time you see it. I'm rather hyped up. Anyway, get crafting! You could save a life this winter!
