I joined Craftsy.com the other day. I downloaded the free lesson on short rows so I am thinking that will be my goal for March; to master short rows. I’m thinking using them for a heel of a sock. Peresphone had a checkup at the Vet today so we had a busy morning.
The other night I made some dye out of radish skins.
I can’t wait to try it. I made it up so I’m not sure how it will work but if you want to try it here’s the recipie:
- Chop up the skins of four radishes.
- Place two cups of water into a saucepan and boil them
- Add the radish skins and let them boil for ten minutes.
- Add 1/4 cup of water and simeer the skins and water for another ten minute (With the lid on the pot).
- Let sit over night.
- Strain out skins.
- Save until ready to use.
*Note- this does not make much dye to the water boiling off. I’m not sure whether I’ll add more water when I use it or simply make more.
I finished my second hot pad.
I am making one more, it’s simple garter stitch. I’m planning to felt it.
