Assorted Projects

Dreds

over the past couple of years or so, I've massed an interesting collection of hobbies. One of those things for those who have roves of wool, but dont know what to do with them, you can turn them into dreds.



the dreds I made in the above photo were dyed with food dye, and tyed in as double ended dreds. They arent all that difficult to make. There are oodles of internet websites with instructions on how to make them.

Hats



Not too many years ago, I made this stocking hat for my other half. I had to insert a liner cause he found it not quite knit tight enough to keep the wind out. This is my roomie's cat wearing it looking all cute and cudly
