A Distraction

Sample Ties

I have a massive list of Christmas projects to finish before we head back east on the 22nd. Still, all I want to do is knit things for me, or look at other projects online or in magazines for our house. So, when my coworker and I were picking through sample ties we received from a client, I couldn’t help myself. These babies came home with me. We get hundreds of ties a year, and usually divvy them up, so this time I took my fair share. Now, all I can think about is busting out my sewing machine to stitch them together. Hopefully I’ll finish my other projects in time that I can have a new purse for our trip home. (wishful thinking I’m sure) If not, these will have to be waiting for me when we return.

  1. Holy crap. The close up picture where they’re woven together like a piece of fabric looks incredible….it has a quilted quality to it. That would make an oustanding bedcover or throw. I can’t wait to see the final product!

    Thanks girl! You were totally right. Weaving was the way to go. Now I just have to get up the guts to cut them!

  3. Whatever you are doing looks very cool. I, too, can’t wait to see how it turns out.
