A Game of Catch-Up February 22, 2008

I’ve gotten rather blog-lazy recently.  It seems I would just rather sit and knit than take pictures of my knitting; I think it somewhat stems from the craptastic flash pictures that I have to take in this weather.  Anyways, here we go!


First up is a detail shot of the finished taggie blanket. It’s been washed and everything! I did notice that some of the dye from the flannel backing bled into the fabric front, which makes me sad. Is it protocol to wash fabrics before sewing?


Here’s a shot of the fabric. Ladybug loves it (too bad, sweetie!)


And my progress on the HBB. I’m not sick of it yet, but it is getting a little large to be carrying around, so….


Rainbow barf toddler sock. 44 stitches around makes for quick knitting; I started this one yesterday noonish because Ladybug and I were home due to the ice storm. I’m about ready to kitchener, once I refresh my memory on how to do it.

    SOP is to pre-wash (aka pre-shrink) fabric, I’ve even heard of pre-shrinking things like interfacing and zippers. Rainbow barf, hee.

    The taggie blankie looks great. Yeah, I prewash my fabrics… but then I don’t sew very often anymore, so I’d likely forget . I don’t notice any bleed-through though, and since the colors are so close….

    Sockies for Ladybug?
