I do enjoy a good audiobook but if I don't have something else to do my mind tends to wander. Idle hands are the devil's tools or make short work or whatever. I need a project or I go a little wacky.
The last couple of audiobooks resulted in these items.
The fingerless gloves I call my Wench gloves because I made them while listening to Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez. I had some left over wool from another project- a scarf- and decided to make these to match. I improvised the pattern but the trouble with that is you have to write it down for the first one to make the second!
During This Book Is Overdue! and Dracula I worked on this bucket hat. It was a pattern from Crochet Today. It had to be felted so it turned out huge at first. In the end, I was happy with the results.
I'll have to find a few more audiobooks for the projects I have planned for Christmas presents. That reminds me- I wrote a post last year about homemade Christmas gifts. If anyone is interested in looking at it for crafting ideas, now is the time.
