I made a gauge swatch for the crocheted socks I’m starting to choose the right hook size. Then I started the sock proper, and got a few rows completed on the toe.

Spool Knit Scarf Piece

I’m almost done with this lacy, spool-knitted piece that I will braid with some other pieces to become a multi-media scarf. Not sure what the other elements will be yet, but I’m sorting through my stash.

Day 17: More on Crocheted Chatelaine

I was so busy shopping for ruffle yarn on Etsy last night that I forgot to make my TAD post! I made more progress on my crocheted chatelaine yesterday. I’m still thinking about how to decorate it once it’s finished.

Messenger Bag Needlepoint

Day 16: Needlepoint Messenger Bag Flap

I acquired a messenger bag at a conference which I found myself using quite a bit. But of course it had the logos of the organization and a major conference sponsor on it. I thought, “Why should I walk around advertising
