So, apparently the best way to get on with backstitching is to just sit down and do it! Who would’ve guessed? So, as you may have picked up, work on Frederick is well underway. I’m still not entirely convinced that he’ll be done by my train home on Saturday, but I have a day tomorrow dedicated to working on him, so hopefully by tomorrow evening I’ll have a better idea. Unfortunately, there is no picture of him now, as he’s downstairs, and I am upstairs.
So instead, I’ll show you some nice yarn
This yarn used to be a scarf, until I decided that since I never wear it, I should reuse the yarn and make some leg-warmers, since my knees get really cold very easily. The plan is 60 stitches on 5 mm needles, with rib and then basketweave stitch. I think they’ll look pretty good when done 🙂
I’ve also started another doily:
This is about 10 cm long at the moment, so I think it’s about time I made an edging- I would like to make a definite edge this time, rather than just add some beads to the final round. This means that I can’t do any more on it until I check that the other one fits the larger jug, so that’s been put on hold until the weekend, when I get home. It also means that I need to sort out a sock to work on the 6 hour train ride on Saturday, or at least something to do then! Any ideas?
I also need to figure out what to take home to work on over Christmas…should be fun. Are you planning Christmas projects?
