Thing-a-day - Days 24-29  

So, one of the things I did get done recently was the thing-a-day challenge. I did a lot of multi-day projects this year and a lot of projects for other folks. Someday, I'll figure out to actually prioritize Gulf War projects during this challenge...

Day 24 - White Scarf
Hand finished white silkscarf. The photos make it look like a Keenex, so no photo. :P

Day 25 - Blue Pictish Hood
Very similar to the one from 2/23, but blue and no fringe yet. I haven’t found any pre-made so will likely just make some.Wool fabric, Linen thread, Handsewn.

Day 26, 27 and 29 - Naalbinding
Working on Sock #2 - Picture is progress as of 2/29/12.

Day 28 - Leap Day Cookies!
I love gingerbread. I have froggie cookie cutters. Tomorrow is leap day. Clearly froggie cookies are in order for coworkers and friends. :)~

Thanks, the article on the weaving of the replica was fascinating! However, I didn't see anything in either article that tells me what the shape is before sewing.

Ooops, Sorry - I sent you to Part II of the article. Part I is the part with the pattern. Page 11.

The froggies were tasty and very appreciated! And adorable. He ate the little guy, I ate the big one. It was good timing since he had a rough work day yesterday, so thank you from both of us.
