Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs.
I made the pictured Soft as Lamb scarf for my sister.
So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk. Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore.
Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I've been working on a dalek plushie for Chris Hardwick, aka @nerdist . For those of you who don't, here's the whole story:

This little ringlet scarf made out of old t-shirts is so fun for fall! There’s no sewing involved (hallelujah!), and you can make it while sitting in front of the TV in less time than it takes to watch a really good, trashy show on E.
Thanks to the wonderfully crafty team over at Etsy - we can now make our very own sailor's knot bracelets! I've always wanted to know how to do this- but as it was, my Mom signed me up for Brownies rather than Boy Scouts- thus I honed in on sewing patches rather than tying knots. But now with this easy tutorial, you too can be a master-knotter.
One common question many people have after reading these instructions is: can I make it bigger?
Warp-weighted looms are almost as ancient as weaving and are still in daily use in some parts of the world.
The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was square , an unpremeditated choice on my part. While at Walmart the other day I saw $2.00, 8″ x 10″ oak picture frames, and had a random thought.
I was scouting in the garage for pieces of lumber with which to build a Navajo loom. Jim asks what I'm doing.
This is how I built my loom.
