Couldn't get to sleep so I decided that I should get up and knit. Now on my 10th repeat for the shawl. I think I should get into the edging. It's more exciting to cast off as an FO!
Other WIPs in sight
Obviously shoving them into the cupboards don't work.
Can you believe that this is originally meant for a 4 year old? And it fits me!
Man, I almost couldn't believe it until I held it up to myself and then tried it on suspiciously. Well, this would be a gift for myself then. All I need is to sew the shoulder seams and neaten the armholes and voila! That's it...or isn't? Well, just have to work on it this weekend.
This is another something...a crocheted baby dress with double love knots* for the bottom.
What do you think of when your mind wonders?
When one has time on her hands, she not only knits but her mind wanders too. Think: shopping and knitting.
I am thinking of the cover jacket of Poetry in Stitches. There are just a couple of issues with it:
- Sizing: The completed measurement is around 42" across which is waaaayyy too big on me. I am not quite sure how to adjust the sizing, especially since the front flap is off center so I can't really do the "remove a motif" approach.
- Color: Great colors but I really do not want to go around in a 'standard uniform' like everybody else. Perhaps a customized kit is in order? Deep red...yummy.
- Steeks: I have never done it before! I have no problems browsing online sites for help but I am not sure if I can do it unaided.
I must be really zonked out. Yeah, dream on.
Back to work.
*That's a new technique I learnt -- for picking this pattern...
