Some more fun stuff

My creative juices have been flowing lately. I have even infected my hubby. I saw a pattern using "plarn". Plarn is made by cutting grocery bags into strips, hooking them together and then crocheting them into whatever. My first project is a tote bag.

Here is the link to the website where I got the pattern...............

Michael got into the fray when I asked if he could make me some shawl know, the kind that will hold your shawl in place so it is not constantly falling off your shoulders. I showed him a couple of pictures...he disappeared into his shop along with 2 of the grandsons and they emerged with these....................

aren't they cool!!

The last project for right now is my first ever pair of slippers. A friend had made a pair of these, so I looked for the pattern, found it and whipped 'em out.....I will be making more of these to add to my etsy shop.
