I decided to go with crochet, since I am pretty decent with that, thanks to my late Grandma Dubberke. (She tried like hell to teach me to knit, but I sucked so badly that she finally settled on crochet. I don't think I let her down.)
There I go again...
(Thank you Danielle, for being my model. I know I told you I would crop the photos, but these were just too cute :-)
It was soft and cuddly, but it might be considered a bit bulky by some, so I had to try yet another type.
The color is awesome and the weight and "softyness" is just about right .
These neckwarmers were all perfect for the medium sized buttons and I had made, but what to do with the large size buttons?
And of course during the whole "Hat Making Experiment" (my first, by the way), I found out that I needed to mark my stitches.
Well, what happened at this point is pretty predictable around here. Why just use a piece of yarn or a store bought stitch marker when I can make my own. I have seen stitch markers made with just a wire hook or a lobster claw clasp (which I thought was a great idea), but I wanted something that would work good with the bulky yarn I have been using.
And these were born.....
Functional and pretty wasn't good enough though.
Have I finished cleaning up my work space??
The last time I sat at my table I still had a space open. It measured about 3"x3" but it worked ok.
It doesn't really matter that my work table is almost 4 ft x 8 ft. I'll clear off some more space when I don't have so much to do.
