I have guestimated that I will want around 150 stars for my garland and will make them all from the yarn stash. I have 2 bags filled with odds and ends of yarn, from enough to make half a dozen stars to almost 100g balls. Once they are made I will press them flat and may resort to spreading a thin layer of PVA on the backs.
They are very simple and fast to make, just a little fiddly for my big hands.
Just a few to give you the general idea, I am not looking forward to weaving the ends in though.
Ben and I managed a good walk in the dry this morning, just over a mile, we almost did it in the dry yesterday only the last few yards in the rain. Most days we do this 3 times, if the day is fair and Ben is up to it the middle walk doubles to 2 miles.
Ilona, Mean Queen, from Life after Money is promoting a "walk a thousand miles in a year". A very good goal and I am considering throwing my name into the pot. I will have to look for a way of recording my walking first though.
I am off to Neath this morning, my passenger is normally there for the day, so I come home. Today it is a half day so I will be taking Ben and we will stroll along the tow path, it will be a slow walk as the smells prove intoxicating to Ben, it will be a case of 5 steps forward, 2 sideways and 2 backwards. There are usually lots of dogs and their walkers to stop and chat with, along with the joggers.
There are a couple of places that sell yarn so I will have a quick look for the white sparkling yarn that I want for crochet snowflakes. I would like some dark green for a Christmas tree garland as well, I want to make this in several shades and do not have a dark shade. One ball will be plenty so I will not be breaking the bank. I do not want to buy any really but needs must and all that jazz. It will all help to reduce the stash and that is my aim. I would like to end the year 2016 with an empty space that is now filled with yarn.
I am off now to get myself into gear.
