The To Do List Grows
Then there’s this sweater. I saw it on someone’s blog a couple of weeks ago and rushed out to Michael’s to get the VK issue. This may be the “complicated” sweater I’ve been searching for.
Kathy asked a couple of questions about my UFO quilt. It’s made of 2 inch squares (not 1 inch!), but it’s strip pieced (sew long 2 inch strips together and then cut those into strips and sew into blocks) so I did not do any sewing of individual squares. I agree with you on the ironing…it’s a big pain, especially when the pieces get big. The quilt is a wall hanging or smaller throw. I do not have the courage or strength to try to quilt a bed size quilt on my machine…as evidenced by the fact that I have completed twin and full size quilt tops languishing away in the corner of our sewing room/office/spare bedroom/junk room. Finding someone to quilt them for me is on my To Do List for this year.
I'm still working on my miles of I-cord, still pretending my Not Cashmere Sweater doesn't exist, and I'm fighting the urge to cast on for some socks...I think they will be Whitby from Knitting on the Road.
