A lot of felted sweater projects just use the body - this would be great for leftover felted sleeves!
Actually, paper has been made from rags and cotton fibers for hundreds of years (wood became more common because of ready supply and cheapness) - so "innovatively" might not be the right description. "Cleverly"or "beautifully" would be good substitutes!
I love the idea of the transparent photo in the first example - something I wouldn't have thought of which lends itself very well to this kind of "scrapbook".
I always try to fly with wooden needles, and I haven't had any trouble so far. A chat in a yarn store a few weeks ago with a random knitter let me know that it doesn't always work, even so - it really is up to the individual agent. She lost her needles flying out of Paris, much to her chagrin. I'll definitely be carrying a self-addressed envelope from now on!
I agree - the tags are sweet, but it's those bags I really need to make!
What a great idea, and beautifully executed.
Absolutely beautiful. So far, the only thing I've used onion skins for is for dying (Easter eggs, mostly), but this is a great idea and the finished project is amazing!
I, too, have spent many hours crafting to the delights of P&P. Before I owned the DVDs, I had a videotaped-from-tv version.
And I definitely have found that knitting is a great aid through stressful times - when my family went through some land-use drama recently, knitting was the only thing that kept me collected during endless city council meetings. My bed is covered with a blanket I refer to as "Penelope", which I knitted after a painful breakup - I promised myself I didn't even have to THINK about dating again until it was finished. And now, it is much more likely to remind me of Lord of the Rings - which I watched several times during its creation - than of my lost love.
