Sick and Not Bloggy

I was starting to wonder if anyone else was out there! Myself, I've been laid low with the "I Got Food Poisoning From A Low-Fat
Subway Wrap" Blues. Available from all good music stores. I don't think I'll be putting that one in the player again for a while!

Even having two days off and not being able to leave the house, I've still done hardly any knitting (gasp!). In the warmer months I tend to be more interested in sewing than knitting, so if anyone's still interested, I think make this my "Whatever I'm Doing Right Now" blog, hopefully with some kind of crafty content (hee). I can't guarantee a boredom-free atmosphere, let alone regular posting, though. You'll just have to wait and see.

*knocks on the glass* is anyone out there? Just checking.

O Coathanger!

Guess what?

I've discovered coathangers. Coathanger covers, more precisely. Yes, I know it's dangerous territory, but I think I can rise to the challenge. For example, not ones like this:

Hopefully tasteful, practical ones that will satisfy my need for novelty while making my wardrobe look quite nice. And I think they'd make good gifts, too. (Ignore that last comment, friends.)

Here's a photo of my progress.

As you can see, I've nearly finished the first one. I have lots more ideas, and lots of spare wool floating around. Although, anyone who's had even a cursory glance at my journal knows how much I hate sewing things up, so they may never be completed. We shall see.

P.S. The instructions for that ugly coathanger pictured above have the words "decorate to taste" involved. *shivers*
