One Crazy Fiber Lady

Moving Forward

I’m still on a hopeful high. ¬†Judging from all the blog posts, email exchanges and smiles yesterday, I’m definitely not alone. ¬†One other thing I’m hopeful about, finishing the teacher gifts early this year! ¬†I’ve already started..


Booga Bag Modified

Booga Bag Modified

Since the kids have the same teachers this year as last, I had to do something different from the scarves. ¬†I opted for making modified Booga Bags for the ladies. ¬†Here I’m using Patons Merino for the black and that multi colored bit, and the Lion Brand Wool in red. ¬†I used the Random Stripe Generator here. ¬†Loving it so far. ¬†I think I’ll pull out a knitting machine to do the dumb i-cord handles though. ¬†I don’t relish hand knitting 80″ of i-cord. ¬†Ugh. ¬†Should take about 15 minutes, if that long, on the machine. ¬†Now to find where I stashed that!

I posted some two weeks ago a picture of local gas prices, here’s an updated shot from the same station.

I took that a couple of days ago. ¬†It was actually even better this morning. ¬†No picture as I didn’t have the advantage of the red light 🙂

And now, to write some technical specifications.  Fun!

Craft on!

    I do the same thing with my knitting machine, especially when it’s getting close to Christmas and the scarf I’m making is taking forever!!! I must confess, though, that the yarn goes into the machine so fast I feel like I don’t have a chance to enjoy it. HA! 😉
