Silken Straw Summer Sweater I've always been surprised by knitters who put their needles down for the summer. How do they occupy their hands for those three months? I've wondered.

Branch Clothing Rack If you read yesterday’s post, then you caught a glimpse of the branch clothing rack I made. In my book, the branch is way cooler than any clothing I own, not to mention there is almost always a funny story to go along with hunting for pretty branches, although they’re normally not conversation starters if you’re going for witty and sane.

Just knot the picture wire onto each end, and then cut them to the desired length. Then knot the ends onto an “S” hook, or tie it directly to your location.
