Actually I don’t exactly dig sock knitting, but the instructions on how to make Bayerische socks swept me off my feet – mostly because of the beautiful cables!
Maybe one day I’ll make wristwarmers from, then I don’t have to do the sock part ;-))
It all begun when I found a tutorial on how to design kolams.
Then I first checked what kolams are and via the Englisch Wikipedia entry for ‘Kolam’ I found a
Random Kolam Generator Random Kolam Generator and an Interactive Kolam Maker. I wasn’t able to use the latter in an appropriate way, double click on the circles always brought different results.
I suppose that I only have to work on it a little bit more.
But I think that I will stick to the previously mentioned tutorial on how to design kolams, especially after I have seen the kolam images at Google and flickr.
And I guess that I won’t need the receipe for kolam rice flour colour (it is in German, but it is mainly one table spoon rice flour mixed with a pinch of colouring from plants or minerals and then painted with moist fingers), because I mostly use graphic programs (that’s because I can’t draw a straight line ;-)).

I found a tutorial on how to make a Spring Flower Necklace.
Unfortunately I haven’t had time to make it yet, but I really want to in the future.
As you can see on the photo it has daisies just like the Beaded Daisy Chains, but they are beaded in a quite different way.
Really cute, isn’t it?

If you want to make Altered Books or Artist Books, or maybe book purses, or you want possibly remove individual book pages to make a beautiful card, then the tutorial on how to easily remove pages from books may be helpful: you moist a thread, lay it into the book at the place where you want to remove a page, close the book firmly, so that the moisture can enter the paper and then you can tear the paper cleanly.
It’s the same principle as for tearing paper, but here the moist line is certainly straight and much thinner.
