    failed socks

    My March socks were less than a success.  I ended up with two wildly different sizes of socks.  Same pattern (Coming Up Roses – ravelry),  same yarn (Bambino – merino/bamboo/nylon), same needles (size 0 circs).  Same knitter.  I can only suppose that I had tension issues.  Or maybe it was the bamboo in the yarn.  Yes, that’s it, I’ll blame the bamboo.  One sock fits, the other does not…I suppose they could come in handy if I ever injure my foot and it becomes severely swollen.  I think I’ve decided to give up knitting.  It is rather depressing to spend time, energy, and money on something and not have it turn out.  And I’ve become rather bored with knitting of late.  I have become bored, and I think I’ve reached the end of the line.  I’ve decided to give up knitting and take up a new hobby instead.

    a new hobby

    So…welcome to my all plastic canvas, all the time, crafting blog – complete with a new look!  I plan to explore all the ways that plastic canvas can be used to create lovely items for my home – everything from tissue holders to coasters to sewing machine covers.  It will be a great way to use up the yarn in my knitting stash!
