There's a great little gadget that we have in our house called "Star Wars in my Pocket" (you can find them here) and when chaos reigns, the washing basket is overflowing and dinner is burning in the oven, we've found a little voice out of the darkness saying "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope." really can lift the mood!
I've long thought a similar device called "Mother in my pocket" would work particularly well for the oft repeated phrases that mothers always use. Mine would contain "Have you brushed your teeth?", "Is your lunch box out of your school bag?", "Where's your jumper?" and of an evening "Who's hidden the TV remote?"
Obviously tired of the search for the TV remote of an evening, Miss 11 decided to take matters into her own hands and with a couple of balls of wool and the long loom knitter has made us a hanger that not only holds two remotes, but is handily placed on the arm of the chair where I usually sit. Even her older teen brothers were pretty impressed!
Long Loom Knitter
2 balls of wool (my daughter found some lovely
variegated yarn that we had tucked away in my wool stash that I also recently used for some embroidered placemats)
Using the video instructions from our "Charity Knitting" post (you can find the post here) use the entire length of the 38 pin loom and knit for 45cm (approx 18 inches). Cast off.
To make pockets, fold up 15 cm (approx 6 inches) at each end of the knitted length and sew side seams in place.
You'll never have to search for the remote again!
