Late Santa

 

I continue to finish Christmas presents. This is another use of the reflective thread yarn. Knitted this time.

The sun is a star, right?

I found some wool yarn with reflective thread in it and made some x-mas presents out of that. This is one of them, a free hand crocheted sun to be sewn onto a jacket or something. When it’s light it looks like regular white yarn, but when it’s dark it shines like a star.

Reflections

Foto-2010In this dark time and place, you need to be seen so you don’t get run over. I found out about reflective thread from LisaMaarit’s blog, and finally last night sat down to experiment a little. I’m very excited, there’s no end in what you could do with this.

Send in the clowns

Crochet!

I commute a lot, usually I read or draw, but it occurred to me there was more, so yesterday I brought some yarn and crochet needles and started. I haven’t done this for years, and not followed any directions either- I do  a lot of freewheeling- but decided I would try this blouse. It’s so fun! And the  travelling is way too short.
