I don’t know how this keeps happening but I did it again! October came and went by and all I managed was two posts… I suck.. 😛 The last few weeks I’ve been very busy with the kittens, sewing, lot’s of school work and some knitting 🙂 and yea I’ve been sick for a week as well.. so I’ve had an active week and a less active week I guess 🙂
I’ve been doing some working tho.. So I’m not all bad I guess 🙂 but where to start?
Since the self made pictures are fugly and unclear I tried to do it this way.. unfortunately you can’t see sh*t on these pictures since I was intelligent enough to place them on the persian rug….. But hey they look the same so I guess you can get the idea right?
Once again the self made pictures suck badly and in no way reflect what the skirt actually looks like.. but I guess by using your super-human powers and combining the dark silhouette on the first two pictures and the colors and shape on the lower picture you can get the idea 🙂
But that’s still not all folks.. how do you like my new trenchcoat? It’s my first ‘long’ coat ever and I’m pretty darn pleased with myself 😀 The more I sew the better I’ll get but already none of my friends managed to actually SEE that I have sewn these things myself so yea.. I’m happy 😀
And finally here’s the knitting I’ve been doing. Last post I mentioned something about joining the armpits and the 1×1 rib raglan, now I’m actually able to show some stuff 😀 I’m not up to the calculation part so I’ve shoved this project aside until my head works enough to not fudge the calculations… which obviously would suck 🙂
I’m continuing the 1×1 raglan rib into the side and it’s looking nice imho. 🙂
and last but not least I dug up some old project 🙂 This project has been lying around since forever because I couldn’t get myself to work on it. The pattern is beautifull but it’s repetitive and extremely boring… (to me), another problem is that it’s not an easy pattern to memorize, and I’ve managed to fudge it quite often since I can’t always finish one repetition… another big oops was when I didn’t want to graft to two parts so I just continued on the start of the first part.. so the leaves aren’t falling but rising…..? 😛 anyways.. I can forgive myself for that hahahaha.
So my mom really liked the project from the start and was looking at it with happy innocent eyes so I decided to give this to my mom 🙂 (also since I’m probably not going to wear it anyway…). So now I’m working on the edging and hopefully I’ll be done in a short while 🙂
12 skeins of 50gr, 210m fingering yarn 😀 I’m not sure what it wants to become yet, but it’s probably going to be pretty 🙂
I’ll say goodbye with kiwi & noodles sleeping like two cute idiots:
