LOL Friday: What Have I Been Doing This Week?

Thanks to our celebration of the Memorial Day holiday here in the US, I slacked on my blogging schedule. To be fair, the family we stayed with in New Zealand was in town, so we spent Monday cleaning and preparing a big meal for them, and then spent Tuesday in DC seeing the sights with them. It’s just been an odd week and I decided to take an impromptu blogging break. But I can’t miss LOL Friday, so here are some alternate explanations of what I’ve been doing this week.




LOL Friday: Weaving in Ends, Magic Yarn Balls

I’m really enjoying knitting my Aranami Shawl, but there are so many loose ends waving around. I’m spit splicing where I can and weaving in at the end of every row, but there are still lots of ends hanging off the back. In that spirit, here are some funnies about weaving in ends.

So you’ve woven in all your ends and you have leftover yarn, probably not enough to make something else but also too much to just throw out – what on earth are you going to do with it, other than add it to all your other leftover yarn? Make a Magic BallΒ using Russian Join! Organize your yarns by weight and color and start joining & winding!

 

LOL Friday: Cat Squad Goals

My apologies for skipping my usual posts for this week. Part of me thinks that so many posts a week is overwhelming for people following me (and sometimes for me) and part of me thinks that having a regular M-F schedule is a good thing. At any rate, it’s been a busy week!

Is anyone with me on this? If not tiny sweaters, perhaps:

LOL Friday: Knitting Is Everywhere

LOL Friday: Hair!

Body hair can be funny, particularly when it’s sheepish.

Mutton chops! These make me wish it was fashionable for ladies to sport facial hair, but that’s a trend that I don’t think will ever catch on.

One for the ladies and anyone who relishes a good head of hair:

Ah, to have your own source of wool … although technically we could knit our hair; I follow weird weekends and he’s spun & knit human hair, calling it whair. You should follow him – he’s always on an adventure!

I combed the internet and could not find the artist who created this brilliant image. This is a long shot, but if you’re reading this and you know, please comment with the info! I hate not knowing and not giving credit where credit is due!
