Trying out weaving on a loom made out of a shoebox with a heddle made of popsicle sticks. Does it get more DIY than that?

I never considered I would get bored on the 7th motif. At least 20 more to go. :/

Wooooohooooo! *guitar riff*
It turns out, as long as you know all the stitches involved learning entrelac is laughably easy.
You need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, slip stitches knitwise and purlwise, purl front back, slip slip knit, pick up stitches knitwise, and pick up stitches purlwise.

Another one of my embroideries, I think this is the last bird I did, it was a commission. It is hand embroidered in Natesh with a hand painted background and french knots for the branches. I have done branches on the sewing machine, but my machine was being temperamental and I didn’t want to risk spoiling the bird as I had to add the branch after the bird was finished!

I finished knitting a scarf for my sister. My mom will take it home and she promised to finish it! I don’t have to weave in the ends and block!!!

My father can only find work away from home, so the rest of the family tries to visit often. I came to his newly rented flat to see him and turns out it has some very fine crochet.
A lot of places he has lived had marvellous handmade decorations. I always wonder about people who have done the work, sometimes there will be bits and pieces of yarn lying around in corners, or tools that were unused for decades. Sometimes I am allowed to take them. 
This is one part of a huge table spread done in no. 30 (I think) crochet cotton. It has a very interesting join where the first chain of the join is connected to itself by slip stitch to make this circle and then other chains are joined to the circle.I have never seen that before.
