The vagaries of crafting


I’ve been riding my bike to work the past couple of weeks, which has greatly reduced my (normally subway-based) crafting time. The upshot of this is that I have much more time to think about bike-related crafts! To this end, I’ve purchased a LilyPad E-sewing kit from Sparkfun (they have excellent customer service, by the by) and am planning to make some highly visible accessories. WOO SAFETY.

Nevertheless, I’m current working on a pair of Coraline gloves and a pair of Pretty Lace Hand Warmers from the Purl Bee. I’ve been a little indecisive about the yarn choice for the handwarmers, and have actually made two, but in slightly different grey yarns. I think I’ve settled on one, though. INTRIGUE! STEIGH TOONED!

Here are some sweet progress shots of the handthings:

And one of two living room curtains that I made out of a sheet!

And for good measure, an atrocious calligraphy practice sheet!

Strictly for kicks, my new haircut and dumb face!
