Kat~

WARNING! I am easily distracted by things! (And me too! LOL)

Mama with too many fun things to spend money on!

Hello, my name is Kat and I am a crafting addict...

I craft, therefore I am

Can't be trusted not to spend money on craft supplies!

Just TRY and keep me from crafting!

I felted some soap last night. I love it! It's not pretty, I didn't use any colored wool, just plain white, but it's nice & scrubby without being too scratchy and my skin felt so soft when I got out of the shower. I guess that's a great thing about using raw wool, still lots of lanolin left in it!

I recommend checking this DVD out at the library:
I can't believe I'm crocheting! Beginner
Alternate title: Learn to crochet with Melissa Leapman
Published Little Rock, AR : Leisure Arts, c2006.

Also check out YouTube:

What kind of felting? needle felting? crochet, then wet felting?

Me, too, knitting is easier for me---right now all I can crochet is a circle as I watch over and over again the YouTube tutorial

Crochet for Dummies and Visual Crochet are also really good! I tend to be a kinetic learner, so Visual was really great for me!
