These, from Polaire are pretty cute. I wouldn’t be able to bind them as they did, but I’m sure I can come up with something.

Pamela Barsky’s web site has some gorgeous things on it. I really like the idea of using vintage scarves and embroidery and dishtowels as covering for journals and photoalbums. I’ll have to hunt the thrift and antique stores for some.

* craft organizer

Posted on October 12th, 2003 by maitreya. Filed under Craft Room.

I found these great organizer pocket things at Old Navy today. They are supposed to be bed skirt hanging organizers, i.e. they have a flap of fabric you’re supposed to put under your mattress and the pockets hang down by the side of the bed. I’m going to hang them on the walls of my craft room to help cover up the horrid wood paneling. They are perfect for all my miscellaneous crafting supplies. Right now I have everything in little boxes and crates, so it’s a little bit of a pain to go find supplies. They were deeply discounted to 97 cents each, so I bought the 4 they had. Unfortunately, the matching magazine organizers (fabric pockets on metal folding racks), which would have been perfect for balls of yarn, weren’t on sale, otherwise I would have gotten them too. Maybe next time.

* The Yarn Girls’ Guide to Simple Knits

Posted on October 6th, 2003 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.

The Yarn Girls’ Guide to Simple Knits by Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs is the knitting book I have been looking for. I am a new knitter, and the patterns in the book look reasonable. I like simple sweaters anyway, so the simple designs using chunky yarns are perfect. They also include some scarves and hats and ponchos. I’m going to make a trip to the yarn store tomorrow, I think. I might actually buy this book if the first pattern works out.
