New Basket

I had so much fun making the plarn basket I decided to make another basket.  This one I'm using 3 strands of variegated yarn.

The way they are blending together looks amazing!

I can't wait to see this one finished!

Plarn Basket

My 1st plarn project is done! I started out with a big skein of Red Heart Super Saver and lots and lots of grocery bags. I'm really pleased with how this turned out! It's amazing how much you can get done with a couple nights of tv watching amd one car show! LOL! I cant wait to start a new project but first I need more grocery bags.

Plarn Basket

I thought I'd try my hand at making a plarn basket. (Plarn is yarn made out of plastic grocery bags.) My first attempt was a fail. With just plarn it felt stretchy and I was afraid it would stretch all out of shape with any weight in it. I took it apart and started over while adding yarn for strength and changed the stitch from a hdc to a sc. I'm really liking it now! This is my attempt at reducing my plastic footprint.

On the Machine

Working on the beautiful customer quilt... The prints are pretty busy so the quilting is a little hard to see.
