Encyclopedia of Craft; Volume 1: Peasant Braids.

finger weaving

I'm three projects into the Vintage Craft Encyclopedia project, and I am loving it! I'm really learning a lot about different techniques, and it's all been really interesting.

I had a little trouble figuring out how to finger weave. The directions weren't really that clear about how to start off. After a handful of times, I finally got it.

This little bracelet didn't really take long, about half an hour and it helped use up a little of the growing pile of acrylic yarns in the craft room.

Real Life Updates:

-The kitten is still wild! We are now sleeping on the couches, and letting her stay in our bedroom. It's the only room that seems to keep her quiet, and I'm willing to do anything for a little sleep at this point.

-There were so many good ideas for migraine remedies! I'll have quite the arsenal the next time one strikes. I wanted to thank each of you individually, but blogger seems to "block" everyone's email address in the comments. So, THANK YOU all!!!! I am seriously considering monitoring what I eat. I had no idea!

That bracelet is nice. Good job! :)
I need a kitten. My sister took her oldest cat with her to Texas, who I started falling in love with while she was here for a year, it's sad. I used to hate cats, now I'm sad thinking about her gone. :\
