Tuesday night I went to Always In Stitches to join some other knitters in making red baby hats for February babies. I try to do this each year myself, but it was much more fun to knit with others while doing it. I had made 2 hats prior to the event and then finished one more while there. They collect them all year, so it’s good to know I have a place to take them as I finish them. I hope to get the 4th hat to them at some point, it was made later in the week.
While we were hat knitting the shop drew for some small prizes and I picked out this pattern for a wrist pin and thread holder. Perfect for when I am sewing on quilt bindings! It has the elastic, button, and velcro needed to make it. I just supply batting and fabric.
Finally finished the latest afghan square, so #14/20 is in the drawer. In the photo below maybe you can see the mistakes I made on the rows. Look for the texture differences.
The mistakes are at the top of photo and the bottom 1/3 of photo. There were supposed to be 2 rows of Reverse St st, I only did 1 row on those sections.
Compare it to a non “mistaked” square.
I guess the Super Bowl was that good.
Now, I need to stop knitting hats/afghan squares and get to work on the other items I am trying to get done in February. So I pulled out the yarn for BIL’s Fuzzy Feet and cast on. I need these to be bigger and more dense to prevent holes, so the plan is to knit double strand worsted and make them larger than the original pattern. And then felt the crap out of them!
And that’s how my weekend is going to go, how about you? Knitting, quilting, sewing?
