Saturday night review

Well, I was quite productive last night! I managed to finish my Burtonesque style armwarmers (I know, I know, why am I knitting cold weather stuff in the Summer? It's just so portable, and small projects can be done in the garden. Actually, these armwarmers I made on holiday, and since the weather was so bad, I spent alot of time knitting in the caravan!) The purple is actually more purpley than they look in the photo, and they'll be just the thing for craft fairs or other times when I'm cold!
I made a mushroom pincushion on a whim, it's made on a small pot, so that I can keep little things in it, as well as pins on it. I like stuff to be multi-functional. Thank god for hot glue guns, that's all I can say! It's not perfect, but I was a little merry (vodka and pepsi, yum, yum) and on a mission! I also made quite good progress on my Jayne Cobb hat for the Ski-Fi KAL, so *pats self on the back* good evenings work!

The armwarners look pretty punk. "Burtonesque." Now, that's an awesome term. I would kill for that mushroom pincushion.

Thanks *lol* They remind me of Beetlejuice and other Tim Burton films, hence the term! The pin cushion is already filled with those tiny reels of cotton you seem to acquire & never know where to put. Really useful for sewing little bits of odd colours though! It turned out really well, despite the haphazard method of construction (how else can you attatch felt to plastic?)
