Mostly links

***First of all, I am so blown away by all the wonderful comments from my last post. The eco-friendly ideas are really great. Keep ’em coming. I’ll be making a list of my favorites on Friday and picking the winners.

***Here is a little peek of the patchwork I’m making for this swap . I finished it today and it’s ready to go in the mail. I’ll show it later when my recipient receives the package.

farfetched.jpg***This book, A Far-Fetched Story, is a crafting mama’s delight. The baby and the bunnies are just too cute!! We got it from the library. Very fitting for what I’ve be working on for the boys this winter.

***Check out this Monster Making. Very fun to watch.

***I don’t like candy corn, but this looks very interesting.

***I’m totally in love with this v-neck, pull-over sweater. It’s crocheted, so I might be able to make it myself. Or, I could get my sister to make it for me. I was thinking of taking apart a thrifted sweater and reusing the yarn. Has anyone ever done this? I thought I saw a tutorial on that a while back. If anyone has seen it, please send me the link. Thanks.

    Hey Regina, that’s the same sweater I’m going to make! Looking for the right yarn in my stash, it will be the first thing I make for myself, I think. Anyway, there is a great tutorial for how to take apart a sweater (look for an XL Gap brand, they have great easy seams) at . The pictures used to be bigger, but maybe you can figure out a way to view them larger? And there’s a lot of information at . It’s a lot of fun, ripping up old sweaters. Kind of addicting… you’ve been warned.

    Oh, and have you heard the song “I Don’t Like Candy Corn?” I think you can see it here . I’m always humming it under my breath.

    Okay. I’ll stop with the links now.

  2. That sweater is very pretty! I have never thought about taking apart a thrifted sweater to use the yarn for something else, but that sounds like a cool idea if it works.

    I don’t like candy corn either, but that recipe actually looks interesting. (Although I don’t really think I would eat it if I made it:)

    That book looks great – I think I’ll go check it out for my Friday playgroup storytime. Thanks for the link!
