Thanks for the invite to accomany you in Make A Thing a Day. We are almost finished the month. Of course we shall both continue to be creative.
The green bag is clever ... it is a t shirt I loved but worn out. I sewed across the bottom and cut the band & sleeves off (for the handles) and presto a very packable laundry (or tote) bag!
The rose garland you will regognize from TWM. I simply joined several together to make a garland.
I'll send you you my final creations in a few days.

When I'm out walking I run into some pretty stiff winds. My face and ears often suffer. Today I started a project which I hope will help. It is a neck cuff or cowl that will slip up over my face when needed and can act as a scarf when not.

Tonight I wanted to make a wee mouse. I had a bit of white roving and some dyed pink.

Today me and Addi Turbo, an automatic knitting machine- you can see it on the right made the start of a double hat. When I'm out walking my dang ears nearly fall off some days, I hope this suri yarn, reported to be the world's warmest fibre, will save me.

So tonight I knit a little stocking with it and then hooked a roving cuff right thru the stitches. It was fun.
As you might have read or can see with your own more experienced eyes ... I'm no knitter. I had just used a garter stitch to knit a rectangle earlier in the week, then tonight I picked up five stitches on the end on one side and knit a few more rows and hooked the wooly cuff.. tada!

After a long week I'm looking forward to making the pages of my current book turn towards the front as I make my way to the back. Is that enough ? I hope so!
Patricia sent these to me me way at the beginning of the week but I have not had a second until today to pop them up for you to see. I hope she forgives me!
