    ßone of my tank tios have shrunk in the laundry and become too short. Rather then throw them away I have started to crochet edging to attach to the bottom of them which makes them the length they should be!

  9. Litl Bits says:

    I’ve just finished a “circle vest” – very colorful – for my granddaughter….and I have a “blanket sweater/shrug” on my hooks. I also am about to start a summer tank top. Though, since it’s so hot, I’m wondering if I’ll be able to finish that while it’s still summer!
    Busy, busy. I’m also eyeing some beautiful Christmas baubles – something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years.

    I would SO love to win a stash of yarn! Because I’ve been going through my stash lately – and, as we all know, we NEVER, ever have enough yarn! Yup! I’m “hooked”!!!

    recently I saw an article titled something like “How to tell if your a yarn addict”. Well, of COURSE I am! I just love getting a new stash of yarn delivered to my home….I “dig” in – but s-l-o-w-l-y because I just want that wonderful happy feeling to last as long as it can…soft, squishy, just nothing like it, right?

    I’ve just finished another Schmetterwurm shawl in Tunisian crochet – I love this method of crochet. I made this shawl for myself a few months ago, but unfortunately my daughter Fiona saw it, tried it on and it exactly matched the top she was wearing and that was the last I saw of it! I changed the colours slightly in the new one, but I’ll have to find a good hiding place!
