Oh! And I realized today that I can dye my own yarn and then knit one of the awesome lace patterns out there. That way my lace will be the exact color(s) I want! Sock yarn should work for lace, right?
Aren't these stitch markers cool? They were made by one of the Nutty Knitters, Melissa. If you've read the Nutty Knitters blog, she was one of my models in our great shawl photo shoot. She brought these stitch markers along last night & showed them to us. I think they're so pretty!
See this bag? This was made (for me) last night by the QP. One of the other women had her daughter along. Well, the daughter had all this craft stuff & she showed the QP how to make this bag. Cool, huh?
The QP came over and demonstrated how to use the bag (maybe she thinks I don't know how to use bags??). She put the yarn (that I dyed) into this little bag. This particular skein of yarn is a small skein (it's the result of me cutting the yarn while trying to wind it because it was so tangled that I couldn't do anything with it).
Well, I'm off to bed. I am going on a field trip tomorrow with the QP's class. They are finished with school next Friday (which is a half-day, and they have off Monday, for Memorial Day). This school year went by really fast!
MAKE it a great day!
