Sewing drawstring project bags!
Emily- Combly mitts - did not provisional cast on for thumb
Socks - knot in yarn that disrupted the colour changes.
Explorer vest I want to use all the lighter colour that are at the end of the skein in the body so I stopped knitting top down and cast on bottom up. I did a 3 needle bind off.
Camp Out Fingerless mitts I wanted the teal colour for around my fingers and there's only one length of it in the ball so used the ball winder to find the middle of the green and split the ball in two. I'm knitting these two at a time. Not super happy with the thumb gusset. Feel it should be bigger but I'm just knitting as written.
Best laid plans
Emily- Wash/ flick card then spin that fleece then maybe make Pumpkin Ale by Ysolda Teague
practice on rambouillet
cloth diapers, curtains.
Karla - Would like to do a sweater. Currently have Blue Sand Cardigan by La Maision Rililie in hibernation. Would also like to do Inland by Jane Richmond.
