No Sew, One Shoulder Shirt. DIY I wanted a one shoulder shirt to wear out Saturday night but I couldn't find one that fit, So I decided to make my own and no sewing required. Tutorial Tricksy Blog: Yarn Information Yarn is categorized into weights (how thick the strand is). The yarn weight gives you an idea of what size knitting needle to use; how big the stitches will be, how thick the knitted fabric will be, and what types of garment would be appropriate for the yarn. “Yarn weight” (thickness) is not the same as the total weight (grams or ounces) of the skein or ball. Yarn weight terminology can be confusing; not all yarn manufacturers use the same language.

The great thing about this project is you can pick whatever fabric line you love to make aprons that fit your personality. A Better Marker Pouch I made more marker pouches this past fortnight. First, a peek into our handmade past. It was well-loved and much-used, but it was never any good, to be honest. Very hard to keep markers from falling out in transit, and spreads over too much space when open to access those markers.
Birdie Decoration This is my pattern/tutorial for a hanging Birdie Decoration. A completely useless object of course, but very cute all the same. It's an easy project to make, great for using up odds and ends of yarn and can be used in all sorts of ways to bring a little good cheer.
How to do the Russian Join to make a Magic Ball in Yarn Have you heard of a Magic Ball? It’s a ball of yarn that changes colors and textures as you work.
