Glass Jar Yarn Holder
I adore canning jars. Such a simple element can be used so many ways. Last Thursday I found a beautiful blue gem for 50 cents at the thrift store. I often use canning jars as vases. You saw them recently at my grandmother’s birthday party… …as well as a few years ago for the Fashionista’s Seventies Soiree. They also work great as candle holders…. …and drink containers. The storage ideas are endless. From the kitchen… …to the craft room. Even washing up has never looked so good. Lighting options are endless. I adore how even the canning rack was used in this outdoor fixture. Of course canning jars can be used in the traditional sense. I make jam at least once a year. Most recently I tried a new concoction which I shared on the Lady Marmalade post. The strawberries have been just delicious this year and I can’t wait to make some preserves. One of my favorite deserts ever was cake in a jar. Yum! But I also loved the idea of seven layer dip for a Cinco de Mayo lunch. Ole! Of course they can also be used as a great gift container. There are so many clever ways in which to wrap this humble glass jar. As you know I also love lavender. So I thought why not combine two of my favorites? I placed a few heaping scoops of French organic lavender in a canning jar, covered it with a coffee filter and jazzed the lid up with some twine and a button. It was added to the giveaway collection. You can enter the giveaway HERE. Contest ends tonight. Laura
Ever since my girlfriends decorated my baby shower with flowers arranged in mason jars...and ever since I started collecting jars for outdoor lighting in our newly cleaned up back yard, I can't stop thinking about all the uses for canning jars. Then I ran across a dozen Kerr widemouth jars on a clearance shelf for $5. I've always wanted to use jars for drinking glasses, so this was the perfect opportunity to try it out for next to nothing. You may have noticed that my iced coffee looked that much more tasty in one. :) Another plus: I add three teaspoons of raw cane sugar, and a dab of half and half to my iced coffee, pop on a lid, and shake ferociously until blended. I can then pack it to go, or remove the lid and enjoy. Genius, no? If that isn't enough to convince you, check out some ideas I've been collecting on my Pinterest board: Monkey bread in a jar...via here. Craft room organization...via here. Mason jar soap dispenser...via here. Rainbow cake in a jar...via here. The ubiquitous, but ever-lovely jar chandelier...via here. Yarn-dispensing jar...via here. Cutie-pies...via here.

TECHknitting: Working in ends on multi-color knitting--part 1: Russian join
Several readers have e-mailed recently, asking how to work in ends. This has also been a recurrent subject on several knitting boards. IMHO, the best way to deal with ends is not to create any. For working in yarns of the SAME color as you go, this LINK shows two different ideas: 1) "felting ends" also called "spit splicing." 2) Overlapping join But, what if you're changing colors? A felted or overlapping join is out of the question, because you'll have color mismatch. A knot is a bad idea--a knot leaves a hard little nub, and very frequently, comes undone with wear. Today's post illustrates a technique called the Russian join, which is the classic solution for pre-working ends in multi-color knitting. Step 1 (left) Make a loop in your yarn by threading the tail of the yarn onto a SHARP needle and running the tail into the standing yarn (standing yarn=yarn coming from the ball). If the yarn is plied, run the tail through the plies, if the yarn is unplied (also called one-ply) just run the tail through the fibers of the standing yarn. Step 2 (right) Repeat with the second color, so as to make interlocking loops. Knit with the resulting yarn. There you go: no ends. However, although this is a BIG improvement over working in a scad of loose ends at the end of a project, there are several reasons why you might find the Russian join to be less-than-ideal. It is hard to get the join just where it ought to be--any imprecision in making the joint might give you a green stitch where you mean to have a pink one. Stopping and hunting out a sewing needle and sewing in ends is slow--the rhythm of the knitting gets disrupted. Because the tail is worked into the standing yarn BEFORE knitting, it's hard to control where it will end up. Unraveling (frogging) is dicey--the bits of yarn are so precisely calibrated lengthwise that there is no extra slack for correcting an error. For these reasons, you may wish to investigate an "improved Russian join" which has none of these drawbacks. This improved join is called the "back join, check it out! * * * PS: Here is a link to a post with 10 (!) different methods of working in ends in knitting, eight of which are "as you go." --TECHknitter (You have been reading TECHknitting on: The Russian join)
