Free Bottle Cozy Pattern – Instant Download

I developed this quick and easy pattern using chunky yarn with instructions on how to make one and attach it to a stroller, walker, manual and motorized wheelchairs, and crutches.  The one for a motorized wheelchair can be carried over the shoulder by anyone.

Expand Your Happiness

I began this 21 day meditation challenge yesterday, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to find peace and contentment.  Sitting for 20 minutes a day meditating is not for everyone.  Some people like to walk a maze, take a walk in nature, or just sit in silence after their morning prayer.  No matter what practice works for you, it can’t hurt to listen to what Deepak Chopra has to say.  Here is the link:

Should You Carry the Yarn Along the Side or Cut It? | Lion Brand Notebook

Betti:

Good information!

Originally posted on G-Ma Ellen's Hands - Adventures in Crochet and Knit:

I found this article pretty interesting, and I feel it might lend some useful information to those who question this subject as often as I do…I knew that you could ‘carry’ your yarn as you work up your project.  But, didn’t really know about the ‘twist’ thing.  Read on:

Should You Carry the Yarn Along the Side or Cut It? | Lion Brand Notebook.

When working a pattern in stripes, sometimes you’ll see an instruction “Carry the yarn not in use along the side” (as with the Knit Shell Beach Washcloth shown…); other times you won’t see an instruction at all.

This video tutorial will show you how to join a new ball of yarn to your knitting or crochet by making an invisible knot. This knot is very strong and leaves no ends to weave in.

I wish I had found this video before I started my last project!  Well, onward and upward!!!

What is important is invisible to the eye.

That is my favorite quote from The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
