Found Rainbows (Old socks – new pics!)

I finished these socks for my daughter at least a year ago, if not two. I’m not really sure how long it’s been because I never used to keep track of that stuff (until now – thank you ravelry!) The pattern is “Monkey” from knitty.com by Cookie A. If you knit and haven’t checked out knitty yet, then you are in for a treat! I had the pleasure of meeting Cookie several years ago at a knitting retreat. I’m sure she doesn’t remember me, but I thought she was great! Oh, and don’t ask me what yarn I used. It’s rainbow, that’s all that matters (also, I might be too lazy to check).

 

Woven Rug (or: What to do with all that finger knitting)

My kids are crafty. They knit, they crochet, and they sew, but when they were younger, they would finger knit. What do you do with a huge ball of finger knitting? This may not keep you up at night (yeah, me neither) but at last I found the perfect thing to do with it. I tried making it into a rug before, but crochet, sewing, and iron-on sticky stuff (what was I thinking?) didn’t work for me. Then I came across Anne’s amazing tutorial. Weaving on a hula hoop! Why didn’t I think of that?? Please check out Anne’s blog – her photos are informative and beautiful, too!
