use felt soles when crocheting shoes - great idea. i don't like walking in crocheted bottems all the time. I use leather just like this then cut felt a little smaller and glue on the inside when slipper is finished, makes them last longer.
"Sky Scarf" project - document the weather outside your window. Gather yarn in a nice range of blues and grays. Each day knit a stripe in colors that match the sky. The pattern turns 365 days of sky observations into a five-foot long scarf.
