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.
