Thing-a-Day - Days 8-15  
Days 8, 9, 11, 12, and 13 were all work on a naalbinding sock. Happily, Day 15 was FINISHING said sock.

Now just to do the second sock. *sigh*

Day 10 was designing two books on Mixbook - one on the pharmacy museum in DC and the other on Pictish clothing. It has shipped, but is not here quite yet.

Day 14 was turning an ottoman into a oven! :)

I have a several friends with kids, but none of my own. I like having toys for the kids, but I also prefer for things to look tidy.

I have these little black ottomans that currently contain baby toys and need to be updated to toddler toys.

I purchased a lot of IKEA stuffed “food” and some little cookware… But I wanted a stove for them to play on… A stove that wasn’t an eyesore in the living room. Some wool felt, a little time with some scissors and voila! A stove on the inside of an ottoman! Space to prep and cook dinner!

And it all stores away neatly (even the little larder mouse)!

That is awesome! (The stove, not to say the socks aren't, they're quite cool too.)

The socks look great, but the stove is freaking genius. :)

Wow, I wish I was 10% as productive as you most days.

Another "I LOVE the stove idea!" How clever.

Nice sock!
I do my socks and gloves two at a time--stitch a few stitches on one, then on the other. That way I can be certain that I am making them change size consistently without having to remember what I did for more than a few seconds. Not to mention they are also done at the same time.

Re: Nice sock!
That's not a bad plan. This was a first-time project, so I was not sure that doing two at once would not just result in double tragedy, but that's not a bad plan for the second pair!

Re: Nice sock!
Well, I confess that I have a single sock around here somewhere. I made it as a first attempt, and thenrealized I didn't think I could do another the same, and I also thought of something different I wanted to try...
