I found some wonderful yarn at The New Twist in Wichita's Delano District and thought it'd be great for some fingerless mitts. And I love this pattern -- Maurine -- that I found on Ravelry. Tho, I love the yarn colors,the busy look doesn't show the pattern as much as I'd like.
But I'll def use the yarn again and I'll for sure use the pattern -- maybe with a solid yarn.
|my pine cone flowers|
I've been seeing so many creative flowers on Pinterest made out of pine cones. I finally decided to give it a try. I picked some cones out of Mac's yard, got some super cheap paint from Hancock's going-out-of-business sale, and went for it.
First I baked them at 250 for 30 minutes to assure that I wasn't bringing in any bugs. Then I used floral sheers to cut them in half. That was the most time consuming part.
I brushed the paint on due to space issues. Dunking or spraypainting would be great.
Right side up makes a daisy. Upside down makes a zinnia.
|found these cute little colanders at World Market for $1.99|
I made a few extra which may become fridge magnets.

I love this simple pattern. It has a cable look to it, but there is no cabling. I'll def be making some move of these.
