Monday all sorts

Started today with a bit of frogging.

Sounds a bit illicit doesn't it?

I am reliably informed that this is the correct word to use to describe unravelling a knitted garment to recycle the wool.

Doesn't sound quite so illicit now does it?

Two skeins of eyelash wool in baby candy pink.

This afternoon I was going to settle myself in my studio, but found some work waiting for me when I got home so having installed myself at my desk in the office I found I then could not summon the energy to decamp to the studio.

In lieu of sewing therefore I did some papercrafting. New paperclip magnet note holders on the way, some gift tags, and some kimono origami for card toppers.

And I finally got round to fixing the notice board with a new pen a new pad and some new whiteboard plastic to write on.

You're right that does sound rude!
What was the pink wool before you unravelled it?

It was half a scarf that my friend gave me while I was in the UK, a half finished project that had been abandoned by her house mate.

Only real friends know the best presents to give you.

I like that wool (I love eyelash wool actually! ;-) ). What is it going to be?

not sure yet Susie - I was trying to figure out how easily it would crochet to make some flower embellishments
