I had decided that I would definitely stick to knitting. I had a couple of projects that just needed sewing up and some nice, easy projects half started. YouTube has all sorts of interesting stuff on, like videos about dinosaurs by university lecturers and, while I can't keep up with everything, it's a lot better than watching videos about crafts which would start new projects. So, I could watch these and knit, right?
I swear there's something seriously wrong with me. Forget knitting, I started making the bag shown in this YouTube video. I recommend it for anyone needing a stash buster. I used around half a dozen ties - at least I was losing some of the ties! I started off making a lucet cord from strips of one of the ties.
I cut the ties into sort of around probably half inch wide strips and wove them in and out of the invisible thread on both sides and occasionally through the lucet handle. I kept missing the threads because invisible thread is from Satan's own armpit and I got distracted as I was watching Shop Well for Less and the episode had someone who had impulse bought at £26k car. To be fair, the only difference between them and me on eBay is scale, but I was hooked. As the video said, I kept pushing the strips down and keeping fabric packed tight. I wish I had remembered to take pictures. Eventually I came to the end and had this...
Tomorrow I am definitely, absolutely, 100% going to start on the knitting projects. Or possibly the rug. Definitely nothing else. Absolutely guaranteed nothing else.
