    I finished the Yo socks from the April CookieA club patterns a couple of weeks ago.

    April TULSA post 

    A few days late, filling up slowly.  This is one big jar.

    Tulsa Post 

    My very BIG jar with clippings from projects.  Looking down into it.  I wonder if I can fill this up this year.

    TULSA post 

    I saw this on Allysa’s blog (alias Allyoops).  The idea is to have a large jar, and put your clippings from projects throughout the year into it.  It is called TULSA, a Totally Useless Stitch Along.  Also, you need to photograph it every full moon for a year.  I thought it would be interesting to do.  When I work on Fair Isle, I often have many ends from even a small baby sweater.  This will become a different kind of timeline of finished projects.

    I chose a VERY large jar.  It is a blue glass mason jar that I purchased at an Antiques store a couple of years ago.  I have a collection of blue mason jars, that were retrieved from my parents farm many years ago, that hold all of my grains and beans in my kitchen.  When I saw this jar, which we guessed was a display piece in a store, I knew it was for me.

    And my first clippings:

      I’m saving little bits of yarn too, as long as they are natural fibres and not too brightly coloured, but they are for the birds to use for nesting material. I heard a gardening programme on the radio that said that there is a great shortage of suitable nesting material because more farm animals are kept indoors these days. Little bits of wool should be very good for lining a nest I think. In the spirit of TUSAL, I ‘ll try to remember to take a photo of my collection before I put it out in the graden.
