After a flurry of fingerless gloves, I've turned my attention to, yes, Mason Jars. I know, everything that could possibly be done to a Mason Jar has been, but I'm still fascinated by the idea of a common utilitarian object that has the power to inspire so many people to create.
I set about making a sleeve for my favorite jar. First I had to figure out how wide to make it and settled, after some experimentation, on a G hook using #3 cotton string yarn, and starting out with a chain of 53. Once you get this fit right, the rest is up to your imagination.
Once finished, I dyed the wrapper with good ol' tea and muslin rose buds. I'm pretty happy with it. you can see them in my Etsy store.
