A Photo Blog to start off your week:
Yesterday we tried our hand with FIMO clay.
I almost forgot to mention my original inspiration for this project. It was Kimberly who told me about FIMO and her stitch markers looked so cute, I had to try it for myself.
I even found some great tips and tutorials online.
Today, we attached wire.....
and made them into stitch markers :)
Here's my favorite one here - marking my place on Beastie (the Aran-knit sweater I'm knitting for Irishman's brother).
This thing started pretty quickly: I knit up the arms, front and back until the yoke and then joined them all up on one needle. That's when I hit the black hole and seem to advance mere millimeters after hours of knitting. Luckily, my new stitch markers are very inspiring :)
Did I mention he's just as big as my Irishman? I think I could have knit a house-cosy twice as quickly ;)
