New Date Added!
Just to let everyone know, Stranded Sisters have added another date to our season.
We will be at the Kenosha Harbor Marketplace on October 15th.
After reading some discussion on the knitlist and using the information offered up there; I had to try my hand at felting soap. My husband a/k/a/ my "male stranded sister" even had to join in the fun!! A little fleece, a little hot water and bubble wrap turns to an entertaining evening, who'd have thought.
If you click on some of the comments, you may notice that many of them have been "removed by the administrator." Unfortunately, we've had a rash of spam comments. Consequently, we have added the "comments verification" option to the blog to help screen out these spam attacks. We really do welcome your comments but please put the "selling opportunities for land, etc." somewhere else. Let us know what you think of the many projects found on the blog. It's our love of the art and craft of knitting/felting/crocheting and of community that inspires us to share our thoughts and ideas with you. And, we hope that you, too, will share with us.
Well, the flying fingers of "The Sisters" have been extremelly busy. Here are some pics of the latest things that have been completed. Scroll down to the moebius bowl that was so very cool to make. Here are some wine socks that my 'senior' stranded sister and I have recently made. This is a really fun bag that I made. My male sister a/k/a my husband has named it Triple Treat Tote. Why? Cause it is made of three different kinds of wool. Peruvian, Andean and Merino. It is made of three different materials, wool, leather and wood (buttons on the inside) and it has three different bands of design knit into it. Inside a privacy pocket has been knit into the side of the bag also, but that doesn't relate in anyway to a 'three' theme. Oh well. It is a very nice bag if I do say so myself.
Well, the "other" Stranded Sister is back fron Paris and this is what she brought back for me. HUGE thank you's to you! This style scarf is all the rage in France I hear. It is so very cool and this picture doesn't do it justice. It is a double ruffled knit scarf with a band of elastic running down the middle...
It will soon be cool enough to flaunt it outdoors and I can't wait. I am so in style now!
Thanks again Sis!
p.s. note the new kitchen in the background. cool cool
