Unorthodox Crafts
 
Picture
Like many knitters, I have a ridiculously large stash of yarn. Sometimes I buy it with a specific pattern in mind; often I just buy it on a whim with no plan for how I will use it. I am also a sucker for new crafts. When I saw the Lucet (also known as a knitting fork) at the Fiber Fest last weekend, I knew I would enjoy using it. It creates a braided cord somewhat reminiscent of macrame and can be used with almost any yarn or fiber. After experimenting with yarn left over from knitting my Clapotis shawl (of which Latke approves) and with the ribbon that I use for knitting necklaces, I started a cord using two strands of a fairly heavy yarn that has been sitting in my stash for years. The yarn was given to me and is a blend of fibers with enough mohair to make it too itchy for me to wear. My goal is to make a cord long enough to coil into a rug. But I have no idea how much yarn that will require so I might end up with place-mats or coasters instead. The braiding is easy and mindless - a good thing to do while binge-watching Orange is the New Black (my current obsession). Although I did not need a new craft, I am glad to have one which uses materials that are sitting in my stash. That way, I can justify buying more yarn (oh yeah, I did that last weekend also...)!

The size and orientation of the artwork could mean the distinction between seeming as though you have your home flawlessly designed or looking like everything was just tossed on the wall without any idea given.

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.

Much refreshing for sharing it, that is really has included an incredible arrangement to the extent anybody is worried about this topic, I get a kick out of the opportunity to think I recognize things. For sure something I'm effortlessly settled on in this life is the estimation of appreciation in whatever we do, thankfulness for all we have, for our general environment, thus far as that is worried, for things I"m yet ignorant of. We have to esteem that managing the consequences of direct is the best way to deal with change it.
