Arts & Crafts
The art of darning, particularly popular with thick, woolen socks, has rapidly deteriorated over the centuries. Now that cheap, easily replaced socks are widely available, one doesn’t need to spend hours recreating the original curved toes of a sock or reinforcing the rapidly thinning swerve of a heel. Instead, we just go buy new ones when a hole appears.
A great fall project is an afghan. This tweed lap afghan is a good size for throwing on a bed or snuggling with on the sofa. This pattern is made using 2 strands of yarn which produces the tweed pattern. It gives the appearance of a cover and not an afghan.
Fall is here and the wind can be a force to be reckoned with. It is most definitely time to whip out the scarves. I really love to crochet, so I have my fair share of scarves around the house. I was trying to think of something to add to scarves to make them a little more fun and I got it! Pom poms!
