Back here?  And one of the prizes was a skein of Lion Brand Moonlight Mohair? Well, I really got brave and this past weekend, attempted a bias knit scarf in some Mohair Yarn I had been gifted with and actually did it *squee*

Common threads run through many fiber items. Spun yarn, woven fabric, crafty ideas. The common theme or idea that ties it all together. So what would crafting and living ecologically green have as a common thread?

Creativity.

Both require some creative thinking and adapting so that we can either create something from basic items or develop habits that help our planet last longer and be cleaner. Yes, this does sound a lot like the last blog I wrote for the Crafty Witches but that's because it is a concept I'm working to incorporate into my life on a daily basis and therefore, into my crafting as well.

I find myself looking at what I craft, or more so the items left over from creating the finished product and determining if there is a future use for things with a more critical eye. A small amount of yarn that I used to not think twice about throwing out now is worked into a full or part of a six inch granny square to be sent for incorporation in charity blankets. More careful measuring of paint or glue before actually beginning the project has actually resulted in less waste.

See, I'm learning that living green is not just recycling and reusing but reducing as well. Reducing how much you waste by careful use of your resources -- creative planning.

It's small steps that measure up into large actions. Each person's small step together.

you are mediumorchid
#BA55D3

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

It's been a long cold few days.  With temps down in the single digits at night (Minus digits for you Celsius folks) and no higher than low 20's (still minus digits for you Celsius Folks), the house has been very cold as we do not have central heat of any kind and the little portable electric heaters can only do so much.  It's been layers of clothes and practically sitting right in front of a portable heater.  Hands of been too cold to do much crochet.

We've also been without water since Thursday when our pipes froze and just to add fun to the mix, the power steering belt broke on the car Joe drives.  Spent Thursday night out to get some jugs of water as well as some dinner and Friday after I got off work, out to get some pipe insulation, the power steering belt and dinner/lunch to tide us through till yesterday.

No luck trying to thaw pipes yesterday but did go to a friends where we could get hot hot hot showers and do a fast load of cold water wash for the layers of warm clothing we've been wearing.  Even was warm enough there to knit for a while and got 28 rows completed on my Dr. Who scarf.

Today is supposed to get above freezing so hopefully, Joe can get car fixed for work tomorrow and pipes will thaw out.

Now to head back under blankets!

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL
