Day 81 and Smocked Fingerknitting

It's not really smocking because it's not a solid piece of fabric, but the idea is the same. I made a ridiculously long bit of finger knitting and folded it in half, then in half again, and in half one last time. Then using little bits of pink, I tied knots to make the long folded length behave as if it were a solid piece.

It's very very soft. It's surprisingly thick. It was really fast. It's totally original (not for the whole world, but for my repertoire ;) )

It's also a pretty decent cheat if you haven't figured out the solomon's knot stitch in crochet. Lord knows it took me a darn few tries to figure it out.

On a partly unrelated note, what the heck is up with my camera? Every time I scale an image down I get those weird horizontal shaded lines. I'm thinking I might have to spring for a new one soon. The flash doesn't work at all, the video feature won't allow more than 2 seconds of video, the focus may or may not work completely on a whim. I dunno, I just hate getting rid of things when they still function at a most basic level. Bah!


  1. Y'know, I'm reading this and wondering, when are you going to run out of ideas? How do you keep coming up with all these fab ideas? I bow down to your crafty talents. :)

  2. Haha, Sinead, Thank you! You know what they say: Necessity is the mother of invention. I set a goal and now I don't have a choice but to have ideas :D


Thanks for you comments! We do read and appreciate them all and try to answer questions if you post them!
