I found some new clay that I really like






















I had the day off Monday so went to Hobby Lobby and found some clay I had never used before. I bought a few blocks to play with and I really like it. It bakes hard and the colors are great. It even has some mica in it to give it a sparkle. Got to get some more of this!!
Here are some buttons I made with it

Working with the Knitting Board

















Being a knitter and a crocheter I have found this to be very versatile and easy to use. You have this adjustable loom that will work with very small yarn up to bulky yarn. It does a variety of stitches and so far I haven't had to do any blocking. It makes a double sided fabric so the stockinette stitch doesn't curl. I have made maggie 3 doggie sweaters with this, a couple of neck warmers and some drink holders and that's just the start. For more information and video tutorials got to http://www.knittingboard.com/
