Can you use the fabric strips that you put together to cover your hangers? I know you have a lot of that. The Locker Hooking looks fun.
In some of the instructions, it says to simply whip-stitch over the outside row, using a large tapestry needle. (But I'm sure there are other ways of doing it too.) Is that what you did?
Yeah, those may be just a tad too wide for the locker hooking, but there is always rug weaving. LOL And I still have a ton of hangers to cover.
I did the second time and it was much easier. The first time I tried to do the actual locker stitch and it was miserable trying to get through the two squares after I double the row over.
I did make a wooden frame loom and have made many woven rugs. They last forever.
Wow.. made your own loom. Now that is cool.
Nothing impressive. Jut a rectangular wooden frame with nails pounded on two sides.
I've moved on from masks and now I'm working on neck cooler scarves.
It's over 100 degrees outside, people keep their houses at 80, and my staff is in full PPE all day. Gloves, N95, face shield, gown. PPE is still not plentiful and so we get whatever they can get their hands on. Our last shipment of gowns were the blue plastic ones. People are having a hard time getting them off because they are stuck to their skin.
Hospitals are better because they keep it at 50 degrees.....we aren't that fortunate, heh.
The best solution so far that I have heard....one of my COTAs is putting panty liners in her bra so she doesn't have sweat stains down her shirt. How inventive and it made me laugh a lot. Another nurse asked me for the face shield model with windshield wipers because sweat was running down it and obscuring her vision.
I'm kinda over the whole covid thing. The good news is that these are WAY faster than masks and they are totally reusable so I'm only making one for everyone. Woohoo!
So how do you make your cooler scarves? I might need one....I hate being hot!
how are the Covid counts where you are? Ours are wildly crazy as stupid people refuse to wear masks and Thinks it’s no big deal. But now with our counts going crazy, they are getting the idea....but, we keep trying to be safe.
Are those neck coolers the ones where you put in the moisture-holding granules and then soak them in water and freeze them, and tie them around your neck?
I bought a neck gaiter mask thing at Home Depot that's supposed to be good to soak it in water before you put it around your neck and pull it up over your nose. Haven't tried it yet. I'm only going outside early in the morning and late in the evening, and then only stay out a short time. I like the low humidity here - you know how that is. Otherwise, I couldn't stay out but about 5 minutes at a time.
