Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report
TinyKiwi has been working on her Miss Jane’s Hat by Heide Petroski. TK starts the FO section a little early showing us a rosary that she made while listening to the BBC radio program of Jane Eyre.
It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Finished Objects!
RS made a pair of fingerless mitts for her Slytherin Swap partner and forgot to take a picture. TK forgot to post her finished project for a HPKCHC class. Oops. We mention SOS which stands for Student on Sabbatical. You can still turn things into classes, but you don’t earn points for any of the houses.
TK learned a lot about working with wire and beads from working on the rosary. Have questions? Please ask!
We discuss the possibility of an Etsy store and are inspired by the fact that we are actually doing the podcast thing!
RS says start your wedding shawl early! Don’t follow the procrastinating sisters!
RS got a really pretty purple cloth purse that is a perfect project bag/purse for the shawl.
TK did a little stash enhancement and acquired six small balls of fingering weight white cotton for free! We brainstorm possible projects including snowflakes or a lacy swimsuit coverup.
RS as super spoiled by her Slytherin Swap Partner. Thank you so much!
We might do a Care of Magical Creatures Charm Bracelet 1 knit-a-long!
RS tangents about knowing two words her mother didn’t know, woad and kerfuffle, something that has never happened before.
For the wedding, RS shows two batik dyed fabrics she will be using for table runners.
Books to Stick Your Nose In
TK also read the collection of really good but really sad stories called And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.
TK shares the drawstring bag she crocheted to hold her measuring tape in her purse.
TK saw a racoon!
We talk insects, large spiders, and the facebook group Confessions of a Bug Addict.
TK listens to a radio show of an abridged version of Jane Eyre produced by the BBC. TK is enjoying Lana Del Rey of the sad-core genre and describes it as good background music. She is addicted to the Bourban Princess Dark of Days album
Walks in the Urban Wilderness
TK has been walking and gardening. RS went snorkeling!
