Every day or two I pick a project to FINISH. My desk is cleared off now…so more projects will accumulate there.
Can you guess what this is?
I designed this pattern last year. No it is not a winter bikini top for a skinny minnie with no boobs. I used a heavy chenille yarn that is very soft.
The sleigh bell Christmas ornament project is completed. Well ahead of the 2018 Christmas deadline. I hope I don’t forget about them.
I contacted a “bell expert” who said that these bells on a brass stand were most likely used on a dinner table and maybe the guests used them to ring in the new year. Since I wasn’t planning any such dinner in the future the bells were taken apart.
There was a screw that held the base onto the bell. Far Guy removed all the bases and ribbons were attached at the point where the screw attached and then the screw was replaced holding the ribbon firmly in place…it worked perfectly…the extra brass “stands” are now in the button jar along with one small bell without a dinger. It was a fun project but I am glad it is done.
Still guessing what I crocheted?
No… not a bank robbers mask. It is a face mask that people with breathing problems can use in the winter…the yarn is heavy enough to keep out the cold and the way it is designed air can be warmed up before you breathe it in. This one serves a dual purpose as it is soft enough that Far Guy can wear it next to the right side of his face where his Trigeminal Neuralgia resides. When he puts his parka on you only see his eyes.
We have a fellow at woodcarving that complained about breathing in the cold air…so I made him a mask also.
We struggled for years to find something that worked for Far Guy…we have a whole collection of face masks…that were either too tight, too loose, too cold…this one is just right. One skein of bulky chenille yarn from wallyworld makes two facemasks.
