Update on everything
So, I didn’t mean to be gone so long! Instead of my planned post about the delights of backstitch, let’s have an update on EVERYTHING. (And it will also remind me what I’ve got going!)
B, D and E are finished, F is
started nearly finished:
I’m working on a blanket. Its done in pieces, and then sewn together. I’ve finished all the squares (and half squares and quarter squares)
and done the first 7 rounds of the octagons (there are 16 of these). Of course the second 7 rounds will take longer because it’s getting bigger.
I’m not thinking about all the ends I have to weave in afterwards…
I finished a spinning thing! This is 187 meters of singles. I had to spin it as two spindle-fuls, and then do some nifty stuff to make it one length in the end. I’m very pleased with that 🙂
I’m doing more spinning, but I dont think that’s particularly interesting to photograph. At the moment I’m going to use the yarn to make a blanket, but I figure there’s a 75% chance I’ll change my mind more than once before I start it, so…
I decided I didn’t want to make the bird socks for the mother, so I’m now making them for me. Surprisingly, this ended my massive procrastination over the whole thing, so I’m working on these at the moment
Sami’s blanket has kinda ground to a halt because I’m using the hook for the other blanket (and the cross stitch needs to be finished first), but Im up to here with that:
I may take it to spinning with the hook and just plow on with it. (Again, I’m ignoring the ends on this thing…)
The elephant head will get frogged (if anyone can remember that far back…) so no picture of that.
My OLAS cardigan is in the corner staring at me because I’m not working on it…
And the breathe embroidary is still mostly being ignored… I’m too busy having fun with other things?
I think that’s everything important. Of course I have many socks on the
