Simply Knitting

May 26, 2018

I have been wanting to collect all my Alan Dart designs into a binder.  I recently found plastic sleeves that are high enough.  I guess I should mention that the pages are British and longer than ours.  I got out my spiffy little cuter and spent nearly eight hours vandalizing my Simply Knitting magazines.  I also removed any other patterns that I thought I might actually knit which was very little.  And the magazines went into the paper trash.  I wonder what I will get into tomorrow.

I finished making myself a pair of gloves a couple of evenings ago.  I used a partial skein of sparkly self striping sock yarn.  I love to make gloves.  It’s the only way that I can get them to fit.

Physical Therapy

May 24, 2018

Going to PT three times a week is really cutting into my crafting.  I know it is good for me and I’m noticing a difference, but I can’t help think, I could have gotten so much accomplished by now.

Even though I really can’t stand it, I’ve decided to try organization.  I want a designated space for my serger.  I’ve found some great videos on serging and I am anxious to start.  The end of work table #2 would be nice, so that’s where I began.  I looked at the yarn that has been piling up.  It has gone from bad to worse since MD Sheep & Wool.  I got out some handled bags and printed up patterns.  Suddenly everything started to fall into place and I’m making some progress.

Here is little A’s quilt.  It was so much fun to make.  I switched a few things and added some birds and planes and elephant family to help to make it personal.  And the sun too.
