Finger KNITTING Good!

This could be addicting. Or maybe it's just my addictive personality. This is such a quick crafty fix that it's difficult to stop! The orange one was my very first finger knitting attempt. West De Pere's colors are orange & black. . .so I figured what the heck! It's more of a children's version of the cool scarfy things that are popping up. The beigish colored one is actually a combo of fancy shmancy type yarn & a soft chenille type yarn. The picture does not show it very well. Obviously, the one on the right is Christmasy. I like this one the best so far. I do have another one started with light blue fun fur. Not sure about that one yet though.

I highly recommend this craft to anyone with fingers & yarn. You can find a great tutorial HERE. And you can definately notice the difference in the quality when you use cheap yarn vs nice yarn. And the beauty of this quick craft is that if you totally mess up. . no WASTE! Just unravel & begin again. Gotta love that!
Oh, & you're getting a sneak peak of my first quilting attempt. . .can't wait to get that done!

Ok, so what is THIS all about????

I've had this blog named for some time now. . . but have not posted to it. So, you may ask, what gives? Well, I'll tell you. . .

This is going to be the new place for my creations. The name comes from my youngest little man who says, "peekyboo" instead of "peek a boo." Cute? I thought so. And, NO, I'm not affiliated with the over the shoulder boulder hider for breastfeeding. . .although, THAT is a GREAT invention & a GREAT idea.

I have ideas in the works for my inventions. Some are completely original ideas & others are borrowed. I will give credit where credit is due. And if I somehow fail to acknowledge something you may have created. . . please be kind. There are SO MANY creations out there that sometimes more than one person creates very similar items. I am in no way stealing. . .I promise. So that's my disclaimer:)

Don't be too surprised if it takes me a while to get my act together. . . this is a busy time. ..

Hope to see you all soon:)
