Stitching Post Saturday 9/19 + TUSAL

This week, I have an absolutely adorable project to share with y’all and I am finally remembering to do a Totally Useless Stitchalong (TUSAL) update. The whole purpose of the TUSAL is to collect all the orts (small pieces of floss, thread, yarn, or other fibers) that you trim off your stitching projects over the year. You can collect them in the see through container of your choice and, by the end of the year, you have a colorful and possibly artistic representation of your year’s activity. I still think that when we get closer to the end of the year, I will buy some clear glass ornaments to put the orts in. My container is getting quite full…
All those lovely yellow and black pieces of yarn at the top are from my latest crochet project. I’ve been modifying a pattern I found online to create a pig. Except for legs, he is done. I crocheted around wire so the tail could be curly.

    And here’s a tip: To make a curly q, chain stitch however long you want it to be, then do one row of single crochets, then one more of 2, 3, or 4 single crochets in each stitch (the more stitches in each stitch, the curlier it will be).

    Happy crocheting!

    Love your little piggie! You just gave me inspiration to go and fix my dogs blanket (I know, not very creative but extremely necessary)

    That is so incredibly cute. I wish I was crafty and could make something like that.

    I love the pig! Where did you get the pattern? I love the idea for the yearn / stitchery ends. I may have to do that next year just to see how much I get accomplished in my crochet!
