P1100536

Anyone who has been reading my blog for a while knows that I love weaving in Saori style.

For one thing, it just seems to me that Saori weaving is a natural for those of us sharing this community - because we love being individuals and expressing who we are - especially if it can be done using recycled materials.

Nearly Instant Ornament Idea for the Knitters on Your List - Including YOU!

P1090565

If you need a quick little gift for a knitter - grab that bit of leftover yarn from one of your recent projects and wind it into a ball about 2" in diameter.

Cut two wood skewers 4" to 5" long.

Glue a bead on the end of each skewer and you are done!

Easy ornament gift for kids to make for teachers, grandparents, aunts ... and for you to make for mothers, sisters, and friends!

And a great little ornament for your own tree - make one for every project you have done this year!

Got an e-mail from Nicole a few days ago asking me if I had ever figured out the weaving pattern for a Star of David - I mentioned I was working on it in the Yarn Star tutorial I published last December.

Actually - I had put the project on the back burner where it had remained until I got Nicole's reminder! ACK!  This tutorial wasn't on the schedule! And I wasn't planning anything this complicated to post right now in my busy season!
