Field of Dreams & Fabric Yarn

Here I am second day for this blog, and as of yet I don't think I have any readers...lol.  Oh well as in the movie Field of Dreams, 'If you build it they will come.'  So I'm being positive that if I write it 'they' will read it...lol.  So on I write.  I was looking at different ways to promote my blog & the idea of Blog Carnivals I'm going to look into this a little more later.
On the creative front like I said I finished my rag knitted bath mat that I still need to take pics of & post, but I'm happy with it.  Last night I worked on my son's scarf.  Except I've used all the yarn that I have for his scarf, so I need to buy some more next time I'm in Edmonton.
Tonight I'm going to try something which to me looks fun.  I'm going to make yarn from fabric scraps.  I bought a bunch of large Indian fabric scraps from Value Village last Friday.  I'm going to see how that works in turning that into fabric yarn.  I got the idea from Mademoiselle Chaos' blog here is the post with instructions Make Yarn From Fabric Scraps.  I plan on using unused embroidery floss that I have on hand to ply it with & then knit it on my #15 needles to knit almost like a knitted necklace.
