Project, that is…
I’m test-knitting a wool (cloth diapering) shortie/longies pattern for Buttknits. I had planned stripes with these 3 bright colors (LOVE peace fleece); but now I’m a bit stuck on how to work them in a (visually) pleasing manner when there are short rows all through the back. Hmmm… I probably shouldn’t be making such loud shorts — he won’t have any shirts to match…too bad — I like loud striped clothes on boys!
Here are a couple of the other missing pictures… dh & I got all ambitious last weekend did some of those “easy but possibly annoying” projects that end up taking only a few minutes:
Better yet, they both work! I sanded down the glue residue & have been knitting on the needle happily, and the knitting bag (don’t you love dh’s improvised 4th clamp?) is happily holding my (currently 8 foot, 1 inch) Dr. Who Scarf.
I also finally finished my sister’s Christmas bag (Christmas in July, anyone?). I hope she likes the end product.
My daisy blanket isn’t finished yet, but I’ve got the petals sewn down & it’s all ready for my next child-free-before-11pm sewing opportunity. Hopefully it won’t be covered in dust before that chance arises.
Ugh; no staying power… I hit midnight & all coherent thought fades away. Anyhow, here are this week’s random links:
Knitty Summer Surprises are up — I kinda like Teach. A new (at least to me) online knitting mag has an issue going live August 4th — I’m really looking forward to seeing them — that cabled table runner is lookin’ pretty cool… Finally, I’m playing at doing a bit of designing & found this nifty knitting chart creator.
