Reduce, reuse, recycle.

I'm kind of on a 'look what I can do with old crap!' kick at the moment.

My current weapon of choice? Bedsheets. Turns out that if you're careful, you can rip them into continuous lengths that can be used as yarn!

I decided to channel my grandmother and make myself a rug for my cabin.

At this point, I'm three bedsheets in. It's actually a nice little area rug now!

I've never crocheted before, so this is weird for me. The hook is just so massive!

Oh well. I'm having fun, getting rid of something that would have been thrown out anyways, and winding up with something nice at the end of it. Everybody wins!

The snow is flying

Holy cow, time does fly doesn't it?

It goes even faster when you have a deadline for christmas gifts... Here's one of them.

I had to knit armwarmers for a lovely girl this holiday.

I just HAD to take advantage of the photo op ;)

These were my own pattern, a basic armwarmer with thumb gusset and a quilted lattice stitch back panel. Love!
