Okay, so I couldn’t hold out for very long. I couldn’t stop thinking about that new craft I hadn’t tried – hardanger. I found this website that teaches how to do it and today I bought the supplies for lesson 1. I can’t wait to try it but first I have to make something for my niece that is about to have a baby! I’m making a baby sack with a matching hat in blues. It’s a free pattern at Bernat.com but you may have to register for a free account to view the pattern.
I have to say something about this neat little app and website that came in really handy today when I was shopping. It’s called springpadit.com and the app is available for different smart phones. I have it on my iphone but I mainly use my laptop to add things. You can do a lot with this cool program! You can add notes and pictures as well as bookmark webpages and recipes. Not to mention make to-do and shopping lists. I had bookmarked lesson 1 on the hardanger website so when I was in Joann’s today I just opened up the app to easily see what supplies I needed for that lesson. Then when I was at the grocery store and remembered this recipe I saw on there that someone else added I popped it open to check what ingredients I needed to make it. Of course I had my shopping lists on there too. It’s really a useful tool to have!
Okay, so what have I been up too? I got back on Ravelry.com. I haven’t used that website in quite a while but when I saw this neat woven hot pad on naztazia.com that I wanted to make the pattern was on ravelry. I wanted to make one for my sister in the same colors they used (on naztazia). It was really easy to make and looks really neat. I whipped it right out! So here it is….
So now I need to finish this baby sack before the baby comes!
