    Get Crafty

    Fiber Optics

    Finished Objects
    • Nada. Nothing. Zip. Zilch
    • Project: Project Linus blanket
    • Pattern: traditional granny squares
    • Pattern: Viajante
    • Yarn: Miss Babs Katahdin -- Morticia
    • Notes: Working on the lace and beading. It’s taking forever. I’m 3” into the lace, and have another 2” to go. Check out the blog for how to bead with dental floss.
    • Hexipuffs out of my leftover Opal yarn. This is in my everyday bag.
    • Project: Vanilla Socks
    • Pattern: mine
    • Yarn/Colorway: Plymouth Stilleto
    • Notes: Waay back when, several episodes ago, which translates into several months, I started working on this pattern, then put it on hold. Not quite Second Sock Syndrome, but I was working on other projects
