Save Your Ears

     The next thing I have from Tat Days is an ear-saver. In our goodie bags were small plastic baggies with some #3 Lizbeth, some buttons and some pearl beads. Put them together according to instructions and this is what you come up with. It does keep the pressure from the mask elastics off your ears.

    This pattern was very kindly provided by Vicki Clarke. It is not hard to do at all. If you want the pattern, she put it on her blog under the heading "I Wish I Was At Palmetto Tat Days 2020." Don't know where her blog is? Look here: 

    Size 3 makes the right size ear saver. I don't think I would do it in King Tut, though I could if I make it a LOT longer. It probably would not be nearly as comfortable, though.


  1. Well, there’s a time for all things and making an ear saver might not be the time for using King Tut!

  2. I did see the pattern on Vicky's blog. I'm not overly fond of working with thread that large, so I don't have any on hand. I do wear a mask the whole time I'm at school, but since I make my own I haven't had a problem with my ears. It sure is a nice pattern!
