Another Yarn Craft

On Thursday the 12th, the ladies in the knit and crochet group asked me about mesh weaving. I explained some of the things I've learned, but didn't have time to do a proper job. There was even a mention of working on mesh weaving for a 4-H project.

Since I couldn't tell them everything I've learned about this yarn craft in the few minutes I was able to spend with them, I'm posting this link to a blog with instructions:

Happy crafting,

We have a new knitting book on its way to the New Book shelves

This is so new, it's still in cataloging, but I've been notified that it is in the building.

Here are the topics in the book:

Your workbox -- Yarns and other stuff you need -- The guts of the matter -- Shape shifting -- Joining -- The finishing line -- Reanimating your zombies -- Classic zombie -- Frankenstein's monster -- Zombie cop -- Zombie mashup : village idiot -- Zombie fatale -- Dracula -- Zombie mashup : mother of the bride -- Zombie chef -- Zombie mashup : biker chick zombie -- Zombie grave digger -- Zombie rock star -- Zombie mashup : yoga zombie -- The mummy.

Come and check it out.

Happy crafting,
