If you’re a person who doesn't like wasting any time, then the knitting clock is for you. The clock forms one stitch every hour that goes by and claims it will complete a two-meter-long scarf in a year's time.
Create gift bags from old book pages. Stamp a bird design on an old book page which has been cut 1 to 2 inches shorter than a second page. Sew or glue edges together. Secure with a brad or decorative button and small Velcro dots.
