From time to time I lose my socks. And instead of two I only have one sock left.
Probably my washing machine eats my socks ^^
Today I found a nice idea to recycle socks.
A view weeks ago, my mum gave me the idea to look after left overs (it could be that it is not the right word for the german “Restposten”) on ebay in the category “craft”.
I was pretty excited to find so much different kinds of stuff and of course so cheap!!
My first project were 200 wooden “pearls” which I’ve used to make bracelets:
So now I still have about 20 curtains to do something with. That is a lot of fabric, I can say
A few while ago I was knitting a small handbag (the blue-beige one in the middle of the photo with the deer on it ^^).
But I had no idea how to create a robust strap for it. First, I was just knitting one, but I have to say that was not such a good idea. By wearing the handbag the strap got longer and longer and longer.
When I had tidied out my wardrobe last weekend,I found (hopefully) the perfect solution.
In the deep of my wardrobe there was an old belt (the green one on the picture) that I am not wearing any more.
So now I’m trying to make the perfect strap by knitting around this belt. I hope it works
I will keep you up to date ^^.
I’ve learnt knitting quite late – in my mid-twenties. These were my first socks, I separated the big toe from the other ones. I was trying to use my sense of proportion, but I had to learn that counting the stitches makes it much more easier
