Knitting with Twine


Welcome to the November Denami Blog Hop! 
This month it's all about the twine!
If you'd like a chance to win one of two $20 gift certificates to Denami, then scroll through the hop from the beginning and leave a comment at each blog:)



If you came from Kerri's blog you are on the right track. 
For a full list of participants see the Denami blog.

I adore twine. Adore it.
I have some in every variegated color that is made, and most of the solid colors as well. 
But I wanted to step outside the realm of typical twine use on a card...what to do...hmmmm.
*lightbulb*
I'll knit with it! 
Let me be honest when I say I don't recommend attempting to knit using tiny toothpicks. It was fun but very tedious:) 
(I thought I was so clever until I googled "knitting with twine" and saw several samples...so much for an original thought. Pshaw. Oh well *shrug*)

Oh, my dear fellow fox-lover and paper crafting diva extraordinaire isn't well and had to drop out of the hop this month. If you get a chance, pop by Amy Smidebush's blog and send her get well wishes:)

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO
