Plarn Bag Mat Project

I came across this Youtube and I think I need to share it because it's for such a worthy cause. I am now going to start saving all my plastic grocery bags. I know it's nothing new but the purpose is new to me. It's a great way to recycle and, as you know, there's too many thrown into the garbage everyday. So watch the video and enjoy. It'll make you feel good.

Make Your Own Knitting Loom

You've got to see this. If you're interested in loom knitting, you'll get a kick out of this wonderful idea. It's great for children to teach them the art of knitting. It's always fun to make your own tools and this one certainly is one way to recycle! Take a look.

Third Youtube video ~ Knitting on your round loom YOU made

Have fun with this one! Winter is coming and it would be great fun for a home school project or Sunday school project for those little kiddies! Big kiddies, too!

In-Skein Blog ~ Knit Stitch Markers

Look at what I found!! Beautiful handmade knitting stitch markers for all your knitting projects. Christmas is coming, sooner than you think, and these would make a wonderful gift for all the knitters on your gift giving list!

I come across some great blogs once in awhile and this one I feel I must share with everyone. I've never seen handmade stitch markers made quite like this before. In-Skein, Echo's blog, is one to NOT miss and make sure you check out Echo's Esty store. Echo is a beautiful young lady just newly married, going to school in Oregon and so talented in what she does. Her prices are extremely reasonable and I don't see why everyone doesn't buy them up.
