Did you know I also knit? I like knitting. It’s portable, doesn’t require electricity, keeps my hands busy (not snacking) during rare DVD moments, and results in wonderfully soft, warm pieces. They’re usually small. There’s nothing really ambitious about my knitting. A child’s sweater will do for me. Until lately, there’s always been one project going at the time. Somehow, though, the knitting basket exploded this fall. Come to think of it, my personal project list in general has exploded of late. Want a peek?
Here’s my official list of current personal WIPs (Dad – that’s works in progress!) and a few details.
*projects to finish before Christmas
Wow – what a thing to see them all listed out like that. There’s a chance of at least getting a couple knits done in the coming week. The rest might be a wee bit ambitious. But I am so excited to sew more knits! If you follow my Facebook page you might have seen a glimpse of a new machine. It’s my new serger. So so so excited to have it. Got most of the way through my first shirt, though, and found my seems looking like this on the outside.
That would be not according to plan at all. It turns out the tension on one of the needles (seriously – two needles – wow) was loose. I’m going to have to take out most of the seams and start over. But that’s part of the joy, right?
What projects are you working on? Which of these projects would you like to see more about? Let me know in the comments and I’ll make sure to let you know how it turns out!
