Whew, that was a long time without a post. Not that I’m entirely sure anybody is really out there anyway. A lot has happened, our power is back on, my sewing machine was being a booger and got cleaned and serviced. We also got to celebrate Epcot’s 35th birthday last weekend.
As fascinating as Disney is, I always try to have some knitting on hand, lines can be long and boring and waiting for shows isn’t much more fun. Generally I try to keep it to plain stockinette stitch socks, they’re small and I can knit them in the dark if need be.
I also mostly finished this little layette, it just needs buttons and ribbons. The pattern is Nouveau-Né by Stephanie Pearl McPhee, aka the Yarn Harlot. I made this sweater for my youngest niece when I found out she was a girl, but in purple. This baby is a mystery, so cream it is.
I also finished this, it’s a Fold N Stitch Wreath by poorhouse designs. I made one a couple years ago for my mother in law and it’s become a favorite, so now the goal is one for each major holiday. Luckily I had inherited the spiders from my moms stash, so I had some cute buttons to glue onto it. Unfortunately I assembled it a bit backwards, so some of the prints are upside down, but it still looks cute.
And last but not least, I finished this little cutie today. It’s a Goodnight gown by Max and Meena. Super well written and easy to assemble. It went together in under an hour, and that probably includes cutting. Fabric is doodles by Joann, though I’ve heard poor reviews on it, I actually rather liked it for this type of project. Can’t say I’d make a shirt for me, but it’ll work for baby things I think.
So that’s it in a nutshell, all caught up (well mostly anyway). I have a big project planned shortly (hint, I just ordered a massive snap kit on Tuesday).
