Birthday Insanity

Someone's about to turn five, and I am doing my last-minute crazy projects:


How about a knitted crown? (Crepe paper crown, from Alterknits.)


If you have never knitted with crepe-paper before, I am here to tell you you aren't missing anything.

I got this far in one tedious evening, and I've abandoned it. It hurts, it breaks, and really, what is the point. I'm diving into the stash and starting over......

CRAZY, but it would have been AWESOME! I clicked on the abandoned piece and it is truly beautiful. Can't wait to see what you'll do next.

Me again, just went looking for Cotton-Ease on the WWW for online purchasing and this is what I found! Looks like I am too late. This was written last year sometime.

Glad to see that sanity has reclaimed it's place in your life. Good luck with the next crown rendition.

One of those projects that looks so clever until the hands-on reality sets in. I'm sure you'll come up with something equally fun!

I thought you might enjoy this, talk about obsessive compulsiveness. Enjoy.
