It is cold outside! And has been for several days. I have been very content to stay inside and knit and sew.
Mary is running a Fair Isle class at the shop and we are making these fingerless mitts. This is my first one; I am doing the ribbing on the second one. That white line that looks like a mistake will be cut open (steeked-eek!) for my thumb.
Last year I started crocheting a large granny square to make a knitting bag. I lost the directions so I fudged a lining for it.
I have to tack a couple more spots but I am pleased with it. I used a dark batik so I would not have to line it. I added snaps and pockets on the inside.
One more set of Civil War blocks almost done! 4 are completely sewn; 4 need to be completed. Can you see how they are different?
I thought some of you “older” sewers would appreciate this. I still have several of my mother-in-law’s sewing supplies. While I never recommend using old thread, I used this carpet thread to attach the ling to my knitting bag. Check out the price:
Do you remember when?
