Crochet, knitting and zentangles

A little while back I crocheted a hottie-cover for my hottie.  We really don't have a big need for hotties here in the Arizona summer, but now at least it has a cover over it for when I do need to use it.

I made-up the pattern as I went: starting with a sc square and sewing up the edges in a join-as-you-go method, then crocheting around and around and around, decreasing at the 'shoulders' and finishing at the top.  The gap big enough for an empty water bottle to squash through.  Easy as pie.

We went for a tiki-tour one evening, just a drive, for no reason other than to look around.  I came prepared with my knitting needles and big ball of t-shirt yarn.

My husband introduced me to an app call Periscope.  You can film yourself live from your phone and broadcast it to anyone else in the world who has the app.  Your followers get a notification when you're online and can watch, comment and 'like' your video.

I tried it out, by drawing this zentangle.  If you want to follow, I'm on there as @hollybaeb.

I finished the tiki-tour knitting a couple of days later.  It's such a pretty texture!  There's a large image at the bottom of this post for you to download free for a desktop background.  It's so nice to look at I just had to share.

Yesterday, I was procrasting.  The only thing is, I'm not sure what I was supposed to be doing...

Also, yesterday, I decided to begin a new project; how about I make my own coloring-in book?  And also make it available to you?  Oh, alright, then.

Free download for personal use only:  A photography by me, of my own knitting.  All you need to do is right-click on the image and view full size, or open in a new tab. I think from there you should be able to download it by 'copy and paste'ing into 'Paint' and save to your desktop.  Then click on that thumbnail on your desktop and click on 'set as desktop background'.
