OK, there’s nothing that thrilling about it, other than it’s one day closer to the weekend, cause you know, not having a real job means I so need my weekends. LOL! But then again, it’s when a lot of stuff happens, so Yay. This week I have lots of progress to show, in knitting and sewing. OK, so maybe not a lot, but it’s something.
I cast on Midnattsol this past weekend and with a few sessions of knitting I have the ribbing done and 1/3rd of the body chart.
The middle photo shows me slipping the yellow in one row so I could come back around and knit the 3rd color in the row by itself. There’s 20 ROWS!!! of 3 color knitting. Why didn’t I look more closely at that chart? I finally gave up the 2 times around for 1 row and just went to holding 3 colors per row. Talk about slow going!
In sewing I finally have all the parts for Footnote ready to sandwich and let the spiral quilting begin.
I was planning to put a dark border around the white, but I don’t have enough of the fabric I was planning to use for a border and binding. So I will just do a larger binding. I still don’t have quite the depth of circles I wanted, but it was a good exercise for learning the pattern. The next one might be less shades of a few colors.
Wednesday was helpful in getting a little of this mess corralled. But it still needs some help. I need more focus, less projects, or better helpers!!
Cause this one is worthless.
