What I’ve Been Working On

by adustyframe ~ October 27th, 2011

Here are photos of a few of the things I’ve been working on while the boys are gone.

 

I had this record forever to try this project. It took less than 10 minute to make this bowl. Originally I was going to keep it–notice the RED label? That’s why I bought it–but I decided to give it to my brother with a little gift certificate for Itunes inside. He collects old records so hopefully he can find somewhere to put it!

 

I finished knitting these two wraps awhile ago, but still needed to block them and sew on the buttons. I got that done–mmm! I learned that mohair (the red one) doesn’t smell particularly lovely when it’s wet!

I knit wire bracelets. I wanted to try knitting wire for a long time. I bought a spool of jewelry wire and ruined the 1st spool. Good thing I had a coupon so it was only $2.

I bought another spool and this one turned out better. It’s hard to get a good photo though. I learned how to bead while knitting too–super easy.

The one thing I learned about wire knitting is that you can’t really make it behave! I really like the way it looks and already got compliments on it.

 

On Saturday, I pulled the dining table in the living room so I could watch TV and scrap. Man, if I could leave all my scrapping supplies out all the time I’d get a lot more done. I’ve done a little here and there and ended up getting 18 pages done! It was like my own little scrapbook retreat.

Here is one page I made.

 

I think I wasted a lot of time too!

The boy will be home tomorrow and the husband is leaving right away again.

    The yarn that you used for the red wrap, was that from the red sweater you and took apart years ago?

    Loved the record bowl!

    No that’s different yarn:)! You could make that bowl SUPER easy!
