Saturday Greetings 97 has craft articles, tutorials, recipes, and ideas that I have hand-picked, especially for you.

 


CRAFTS AND SUCH

CROCHET

Maybe you are just learning to crochet, or you are a more advanced crocheter, I think anyone would love a set of these mason jar covers. Who doesn’t have jars sitting around? Get them ready for a spring bouquet of tulips.

DIY

You can make sanitizing wipes. Never Ending Journeys shows you how.

Ingredients You Need

  • 1/2 cup 91% Isopropyl (Rubbing Alcohol)
  • 15 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 25 drops Lemon Essential Oil (or more for a stronger scent)
  • 1 Paper Towel Roll {the kind that comes with ‘half sheets’}
  • 1 Wide Mouth Quart Mason Jar

KNITTING

Do you need a quick and easy gift for a newborn? This Easy Vest pattern from Ohlalana might do the trick. The pattern uses larger needles and Super Chunky / Super Bulky weighted yarn: approx. 115 yd (105 m) / 145 yd (133 m) / 190 yd (174 m) / 236 yd (216 m). Or worsted/Aran yarn used double (double the yardage).

Bernat Blanket yarn might be good to use on this vest.

WEAVING

Many years ago, I learned how to do Inkle Loom weaving.

Wikipedia describes Inkle Loom Weaving as:

Inkle weaving is a type of warp-faced weaving where the shed is created by manually raising or lowering the warp yarns, some of which are held in place by fixed heddles on a loom known as an inkle loom. Inkle weaving was referred to in Shakespeare‘s Love’s Labour’s Lost. A table-top inkle loom was patented by Mr. Gilmore of Stockton, CA in the 1930s, but inkle looms and weaving predate this by centuries. The term “Inkle” simply means “ribbon” or “tape” and refers to any warp-faced woven good made on any type of loom, from backstrap to box-looms.[1]

Inkle weaving is commonly used for narrow work such as trims, straps and belts.

To introduce you to inkle looms, I found this blog post on one weaver’s journey with inkle looms. The blog Sweet Leaf Notebook is by Michele Matucheski.

Coffee or Tea?

I thought you might find this post on coffee vs. tea enlightening.

It seems like every St. Patrick’s Day☘️I try a different recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage. This year I am going to use this recipe. I love cooking with Guinness.
