Instead, I'm having fun with some projects that have been on the back burner for awhile. I pulled the McCalls pattern out for a second look. Yes....I had made a mistake when I traced my pattern. So, let's try this again.
Next up will be this heavenly feather weight corduroy. I think this top pattern is perfect! (Remember: corduroy has a nap...use a simple pattern layout!!!)
And, for our weaving pleasure, a shawl using this wool from South America. Santa brought me a 5 dent reed to use with bulky yarn!!!!
I finished the upcycled shirt...the jury is still out on that one.
And, I finished the blue jean purse. FUN!!!
I used it on Tuesday, and the braided strap stretched so much that the bag was down to my knees by the time I got home!!! With help from my handy seam ripper, I opened the top and shortened it by 5 inches. And, while I had it apart, I added another pocket to the lining inside. (That's two pockets inside: one zippered. Outside there are two pockets on each side. The zipper in the front is also a pocket.)
I may have to shorten the strap a little more.......
I figure I have a few more days to just play....Saturday is Twelfth Night, and it's time for the tree to come down. Also, there's some end of the year bookkeeping I need to take care of. (I don't even want to think about starting to work on taxes just yet....but, that's just around the corner.)
I think staying in and staying warm.....and playing with a little fiber is a good thing!
Happy Weaving! (and stay warm!)
