Youse not fat, youse fluffy!


Bailey just awakened from a nap

I found some scrap yarn and knit a new pair of socks for myself.  I experimented with using two strands as reinforcement for the heels.



I bought some cotton yarn for weaving and had intended to weave a couple of cotton hand towels.  But I changed my mind midstream and have decided to work the piece into a vest.  It's still in the planning stage.  I had a really tough time keeping the tension even.  I wanted a really tight weave so I used four strands as one, two white, two blue.  That may have been the reason for the tension problems.  It did make for a rather interesting weave pattern.


Here's a close up of the weaving.


I've also finished a winter wall hanging for my daughter but I can't show the whole thing yet.  Here's a sneak peek.



Hope you have a good day.
