I had no idea that the last time I posted on this blog was last January. Oops! I really didn’t mean to forget. And I really have been busy. I finished the blanket.
I used the leftovers to make a bag, and I LOVE IT!
I have also been busy making inserts for my fauxdori and journaling like crazy.
And I got cornered into sewing a dress for my daughter. She was sooo happy with it.
And I just finished reading this book and I love it. I already tidied up the socks and unmentionables and the difference is Crazy!
Yup. It is done. And I have already cast another one
I am making another sockhead hat on larger needles so hopefully it will fit this time.
What is in your knitting notions kit? I keep all of my notions in a big tin, because I love them and it is easier to access whatever you need compared to a zippered case. I have a needle book where I keep most of the needles I use for weaving in the ends, I also have a set of three larger ones I use with bulky and super bulky yarn, they’re the ones in the tin. Stitch markers, needle threaders, a thimble, a pair of scissors, two measuring tapes and my stitch counter. There is also a few magnetic bookmarks that I use to mark printed patterns or my place in my stitch pattern books. I like having everything I need in the same place.
It is all just trial and error, you try stuff, you make mistakes, then you try again.
I love the randomness
I was dreaming of getting a rocking chair
Practicing hand drawing
I just made a watercolor of a google map.
They are supposed to be flowers
Trying to be wise and deep.
I just love doing watercolor with black ink sketches
I don’t like this one, but it is all a process
I finished my hat but it was too small for me, so the six year old is the lucky recipient. Either I have a super big head or I knit too tight, anyways, I just cast on another one and went up 2 needle sizes so we’ll see.
I was knitting socks with this yarn. But it just wasn’t working for me. So I frogged them and started a sockhead hat. I think it is going to be too tight. Either my head is bigger than average or I knit much tighter than average. Oh well the 6 year old really wants it.
