Fiber Arts Friday

G'day

Here is another meme I have joined on Fridays called
Fiber Arts Friday hosted by Alpaca Farm Girl. Please visit her and see the wonderful fiber creations from others around the world.

Well as you know from previous post I have made a pair of fingerless gloves, click here if you want to read and see pics. Hah, two different colors, I ran out of the dark green. I remember seeing more of the lighter green, too much stash, so today I decided to make another one to match the light green. I have just started on the cuff. As always clik on pic to enlarge.

These are so easy to make, I might make more, even turn them into gloves, just continue on the fingers. I might try that on the dark green fingerless glove, see how that works out :)

I also completed a strip on the yellow and white blanket in garter stitch knitting and have started the middle strip. Enjoying this one too especially when I am watching TV.


Ok this is not anything to do with fiber, but these are all the resin jewels that have been demoulded and curing. Click here to read about them. The pretty one, oval with flower, has dried up inside. I placed them in direct sun to speed up the process of curing and they dried up. But still look ok. They will cure for a good two weeks, before sanding occurs, any sooner they go yucky. I cannot wait, I really like the colored ones.


I picked up a novel at the local library today, "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. I finished reading "Twilight" and I am still reading the "The Host" from the same author.

This is all for the week, I am still trying to orientate myself, hubby has gone back to work from two week break. I have to get back to my routine of blogging. I have been reading your blogs and as always enjoy. Thank you for everyone's comments, I do appreciate all.


I also have an Etsy shop called 'Crochet Creations'. Stop by for a browse sometime and spread the word, thank you :)


Enjoy your day and have a fabulous weekend

I love the cuffs on those gloves! Are you going into the front/back loops of the previous row to make the rib?
