Comfy and cozy Prairie Boots will get you through the coldest of winters. Turn them down for ankle length or leave them up to keep your shins warm.
We betrappen ons zelf er wel eens op. We kunnen behoorlijk doorslaan als het haken betreft. We zien overal mogelijkheden want je kunt bijna alles haken, omhaken of versieren met haaksels. Nu zijn wij gelukkig nog heel kritisch op ons eigen werk, maar blijkbaar geld dit niet voor iedereen. Daarom nu deze rubriek...wat je vooral niet moet willen haken.
It's finally time for the long-awaited DIY I promised you, which is also eco! So, let the upcycling begin! We normally knit and crochet using a thread of yarn but what if we add some reducing to our creativity? Sounds strange? We can then make our own thread without any sheep but with the help of our old clothes! In this fun tutorial I will show you in just 6 steps how to upcycle your ragged pants by turning them into a bowl!
For those of you whom haven't been following me or the blog for quite some time, you may be unaware of my affinity for Pinterest a site that acts like a virtual pin board where you can collect images of all the things that inspire you online. I like to use it as a means of keeping my bookmark tabs a little less cluttered (as it links back to the original posts). I've seen some great pins from some of my friends lately and I thought I'd share a few with all of you! For those of you unfamiliar with Pinterest, it's really quite the addiction for me. If any of you would like to start using it, you can check out the Contact tab above and drop me an email, I'd love to invite as many of you as I can.
I have had tons of hits for this scarf , which I first found here . I got the pattern from Borealis Yarns . When I had a request for the pattern I got their permission to post the pattern. If you have access to it, you might want to check out the article in Spring 2005 Interweave Knits on Brioche Stitch.
If I want to decrease 14 stitches over 6 inches - how many rows should I work between decreases?
Whimsical, bobbled sea urchin, knit in soft wool and felted into a sturdy and intriguing ovoid, about the size of the palm of your hand. Use it as a pincushion, toy, or displayable curiosity.

A few weeks ago, we posted about a pattern for a DIY knitted pouf . We have a lot of crafty folks in the Apartment Therapy community who were excited to try their hand at this project. Apartment Therapy reader Charlyne sent us these pictures of her own pouf and gave a few tips... Charlyne's main piece of advice for any pouf knitters, is to be careful not to tie the seam too tightly, otherwise there will be a bit of an indent in the side of the pouf. (This might not sound serious, but that indent can make your pouf look more like a baby's bottom than a sea urchin!)
Yarn: Cascade 220, color: natural Wraps Per Inch: 9 wpi Needles: 5mm, US size 8 Gauge: 19 stitches in 4 inches Pattern: Lily of the Valley Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 27sts Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns Page: 226 Difficult Techniques: Slipping the first of the 4 stitches required to make the ‘lily’ knots can be a bit tricky because it is a little tight to get the needle inserted easily. Comments: Barbara Walker comments that the pattern would look more lily-like if the pattern were used upside down, but, in my opinion, right side up it looks more like a true stem of Lily of the Valley.
In the background, I am still quietly knitting the squares for my knitted patchwork blanket of many stitches. Not sure why I have chosen this year for big crafting projects. I think it chose me. Sometimes, in the depths of the night, I do wonder why knitted pot holders or a quilted cushion hadn’t grabbed me as a good idea.
