Going to the beach today was ruled out, 1 to 4. How can that be fair that one out rules four? When it's an upset stomach. Mine. Ugh.
Rather than let the day go to waste, Mr. Dee has been tinkering with the television. We don't subscribe to any of those paid TV services (satellite, cable, etc) so we, or rather HE, is trying to figure out if we'll be needing one of those digital converter boxes. All I know is if he can pull in The Knit and Crochet Show, that would totally rock!
As for my accomplishments today? I have been in knots. Not just my stomach, but actual knots -- known as the world of macrame. I managed (with the assistance of Dee Jr.) to make my own macrame board (a huge one to attempt garment making), along with working on getting the new Ravelry group, Macrame: All Knotted Up, up and running.
If you think macrame is only for plant hangers, think again. Check out this stunning necklace that combines macrame with beading and crochet:
