Last week I picked up some linen, cotton & rayon blend yarn in the hickory broom handle colour from the sale bin at the local yarn shop, & knit two 'grips' which I slid on the handle, & positioned where my hands fit :) Viola, broom handle grips - simple k 2, p 2 pattern, 20 stitches, & it's fingerling weight for the knitters among us :)
& then on Sat I stopped by the Antique store which is, sadly, closing its doors, & found the 'perfect' dustpan! This is actually probably a 'crumb pan,' as it's a bit smaller (used to brush table crumbs into)
It is so shiny, I wasn't sure the pretty pattern would show up - but I think you can get a glimpse! It was 20% off the original $5- . . . what a bargain, no?? (there were a couple of others, but I resisted the temptation to get more than I needed!) Now, since there's no hanging hole, I'm thinking of making a 'pocket' to hang it in - tho my dustpans usually live on the floor!!
I haven't written about 12-Secrets - prob next week after the wedding - but thought you'd enjoy seeing photos of the 'progress' on the broom :)
