Im displaying some things this Sunday at the Made in Connecticut Fair here in Oxford. Leslie Alexander has a both and offered me some space with her. Ill enjoy my time with her and enjoy seeing all the wonderful handmade things that will be there. Check the web for details.
So for this FAF I'm going to share a little idea that was shared with me a few weeks ago by my friend Linda Hooper. Great little idea she got from a Lilly Chin class. Its so simple its silly, but green, recycled and saves on cash. These little tie off gadgets are $$$ in the craft shops so why not acquire them for free.
Save the little plastic closures from your bread bags and use it to keep the excess yarn or tail you may have when you cast on. Sometime you need to leave a tail to seam with and its in the way. I have made them into the little tiny butterfly ties, but then I go to undo it and it to tight or gets knotted. Also great for embroidery floss!
This is the idea shared with me that I'd like to pass on. Simple, but useful and GREEN!
