I have been enjoying making a bunch of these....
Men's on the left and a women's pair on the right. They're made from recycled sweaters and lined with recycled velour housecoats. Really fun to make and cheap too! They will be going in the Christmas box for next year (at least 14 pairs!!). Will show you a picture once I have them all finished. The pattern is from HERE (with some adjustments by me).
- For those of you who make (or who are interested in making) twiddlemuffs for patients with Alzheimer's or dementia, there is a very good how to (with great ideas) HERE (it's a PDF). They are a wonderful use for scrap yarn.

- You know how sometimes you come across something that's so darned simple that you wonder why you haven't thought of it? Well, have a look at THIS video and you'll see two fabulous (and easy!!!) tricks for knitting.
- THIS is a fun crochet pattern that would be lovely in baby blankets.
- I don't know who created THIS (if you do, please let me know and I'll give proper credit) but I thought it was such a great use for those CD's we hate to throw away. Would be nice to fine the actual pattern.
- Awhile ago the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design announced a challenge for participants to create pieces of needlework with the theme 'The Summer of Love'. Their online exhibition of the creations can be found HERE. Their next stitch at home challenge is "View From My Window' and further information can be found HERE.
- THIS is a very elegant little pouch that would make a lovely gift for someone.
- Am I the only one that remembers at least one of THESE pillows sitting on my grandmothers couch?
- And just for the sheer cuteness factor, have a look at this....
