No Money for Yarn? Try paper.....

Evidently, you can spin newspaper into a useable fiber.
Instructions available here.

That's waaaaay more work than I'd ever do, but it is a cool idea.

Farewell Sherman

After only 10 years, our much-loved dog Sherman has departed. I was working on a sweater for him, but I think I will just throw the entire project & yarn out. I don't have the heart to either rip it out OR reuse the yarn.

I have spent most of the summer working on dishcloths. Of course, I haven't remembered to take any pictures of them, but I did get about 8 done.

I went on a Malabrigo buying spree a few months ago, and I have been saving some of the balls for a "special" project. I think I found it. I will make this felted bag.

The last felted bag I made (a huge tote) went to Lisa, who re-gifted it to her mother. Lisa doesn't "do crafts" and I don't think she had any idea how long it took to knit the bag. Fortunately--her mother is crafty and likes it a lot.
