Popcorn crocheted sweater that is. This is the sweater for Miss K. Next will be Miss J's, then the boys'. When I first saw this pattern, it scared me. It looked very difficult, but it's not. It only required the single and double crochet stitches.
Here's a closeup of the ribbing and popcorn puffs.
I am one of the top ten winners this week in the CSI challenge (Create Something Inspiring)! I am really surprised! There were some really great projects, so to be included in the top ten is a shock! Thanks! If you aren't familiar with this site, you really should check it out. Each week there's a different challenge. There's usuallly over 100 entries, so some really great ideas are shown! I have found several new blogs that I am following from these challenges.
Here's a preview of what's up next on my list. I really need to move that plastic bag off that doorknob. It's been in several pictures lately.
A friend of mine, who I worked with on the wearable arts fashion show, is going to the intermediate schools in the area and teaching about Fiber Arts. She let the 4th graders dye yarn with Kool Aide, then she gave them hand sized looms that she made with mat board and string. They are weaving a design using colors that tell a story. They are dreaming up these stories using their imaginations. They will write the story at the end of the week. She has taught them a brief history of quilt making and the stories that go along with that craft. She has also introduced other cultures' stories that they tell with their fiber arts. I went one day last week to witness the fun. I'm going to go more this week. I think it's a great program that is sponsored by our area arts council.
