I am. Big time! What else do I do?
- loom knitting
- thread crocheting
- craft sewing
- cross stitching
- rubber stamping
Of those things listed above the ones I have done most recenty are the loom knitting, craft sewing and both types of crocheting. I have a stash for all of these things. I have begung to think about whether I should give up some of these crafts but I really do want to work on them. While I was finishing UFOs this year I thought that I ought to rotate project types and still think that is a good idea.
Here is my plan.
- Find all non-quilty UFOs and decide if I want to finish them
- Create a fab 4 similar to what I do for my quilting
- Get all the materials necessary for the project and "kit it up"
- Keep the projects handy for t.v. watching time
I have been loom knitting socks. While I was waiting for dd's foot to become available I started looking for my spare loom so I could start another sock. In doing so I came across a loom knit UFO. It is a plastic bag holder made from strata (self striping) yarn. I only had to remove it (cast off) from the loom and then sew the end over to make a cuff. The casting off technique was new to me but I managed to get that done while making supper. I also cuffed that edge as well. Now I have to locate some elastic and sew it into the cuffs. I will then have a completed object. I measured dd's foot and finished knitting her first sock. I have to learn a new finishing technique for the sock to finish it and plan to do that tonight.
Tell me about your other crafty interests and UFOs. Do you plan to finish them?
