favourite things friday

I nev­er knew that one could knit with­out nee­dles. But yes, fin­ger-knit­ting — a skill I must learn! Tuto­r­i­al by V and Co. (I imag­ine this would be a good project for t‑shirt yarn, and here’s a great tuto­r­i­al on how to make that.)


Anoth­er recy­cled project, this time with a dis­pos­able cup! Looks like they’re not so dis­pos­able any­more. Well, at least the kind made with #6 plas­tic, because appar­ent­ly they shrink in the oven, just like shrink plas­tic! I can’t wait to try this — this very flat pen­dant start­ed as the bot­tom half of the cup! I can only imag­ine the fun of watch­ing it shrink and go flat in the oven. How-to on Dol­lar Store Crafts.


Also from Dol­lar Store Crafts — this tea duck just quacks me up. (sor­ry, could­n’t help it.)


Here’s some real crack­ing actions on Not Martha — East­er sur­pris­es hid­den in real egg shells. Like Kinder Eggs, but home­made and there­fore extra spe­cial. I think these make great par­ty favours anytime.


Speak of sur­pris­es, I just spot­ted this on Rav­el­ry the oth­er day — a fish-to-sushi-to-fish amigu­ru­mi! A free pat­tern by Irka.


More spring knit­ting on my project list. I like this leaf scarf. Pat­tern by Spud & Chloe.


And this leaf top by Bernat, in grey.


But for now, I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and con­tin­ue on that cardi­gan I start­ed in February…

Hap­py Fri­day! :D

  1. love the tea duck, its one of those “why-did­n’t-I-ever-think-of-that-before?” kind of projects.

  2. Trish, my kids — my two younger ones LOVE to fin­ger knit when we trav­el. We have metres of fin­ger knit­ting that has then been used as yarn to reknit. Very relaxing…

  3. that’s a great idea! i will have to car­ry some yarn with me from now on, in case i find myself with­out a book on a long TTC ride. you have the coolest kids!
