The cold snap in Arizona continues; it’s friggin frigid here!  I’m tempted to get my knitting needles out and make some big, wooly socks so I don’t have to leave house to go buy some.  Yes, I only wear socks once a year. No, I actually can’t knit socks. Unless they are rectangle-shaped socks. But you know who can knit?  Virginia, from UberCrafty, that’s who.  But she doesn’t limit her knitting to human apparel. If you leave a broken chair on the back of her porch, she just might knit that thing a sweater!  I have to say it again: She reupholstered this crappy old chair with a custom-knitted sweater!  
Totally cool. And warm!

  7. many years ago (in the 80s), there was in infomercial on for the knit-wit and doodle-loom tools. My sister and I would always tease about the knit-wit and doodle-loom tools. The afghan in the back of the first picture looks exactly like what would be created with the tools. Thanks for the memories!
