Appliance covers

Very simple and quick project.  Used one piece of fabric per appliance with very little cutting.  I made a cover for a food processor and blender.  Toaster is next! I didn't use any interfacing to provide structure to the fabric since I wanted these to be easy to store and wash.  Very easy to fold or roll into a ball when the appliance is in use.

Something everyone should have!

After many drives to the desert called Sacramento, I found myself burning in the passenger seat with the sun hitting me.  My sad excuse for a visor would not block all of the sun, so I came up with the idea of a visor extender.  I hope to expand more on this one day to include a shade of some sort to cover the window.  But for now, this helps.

I have include several pockets and even a small zippered pouch.

Ruffle edge knitted scarf

I had a request from Mom to make her a light a frilly scarf that she can wear in the Fall/ Spring seasons.  The scarf in general was a simple knit stitch.  I made it narrow for a lighter effect and to wrap around a couple times.  The ruffle edge was harder than expected.  I followed a YouTube video for instruction.  To finish off the scarf, knitting the ruffle edge backwards was not an accomplishable task.  So, I knitted a separate ruffle and then knitted the two pieces together.

Arm knitted infinity scarf

I really like the look and versatility of infinity scarves and since I don't have one of my own, I made one! Again, I went on YouTube and found an instructional video.  I had a really hard time casting on, but after that this was very easy! Now that I know what I'm doing, I could make one of these in 30 minutes.  This one used bulky yarn, which is what you want, and 2 balls of it.  Next time I will cast 6 versus 12 to make more narrow. What do you think?

Manly grilling apron!

With some measurements I made this grilling apron for my brother.  I have still not perfected the skill of making clothes for someone that I am unable to have a fitting with once in a while.  Sorry Clark! Just a little large :)
