How shall I weave all that my brain has to offer into a gently flowing narrative? I’m thinking a list.
- Picked up Ladybug’s Swirly socks again, have made it past the heel. It was totally inspired by my desire to try this short-row heel technique. I only ripped out the heel 5 times before I got it right. Still not feeling the short-row love, but it’s something I’d like to have in my arsenal. (For the record, when she’s talking about “active stitches”, she is including those ones that you just made.)
- Started making Ladybug a tutu. Luckily I bought tulle on a spool, but cutting it into the right length is still tedious.
- Desperately want to run out and buy lots of cute flannel prints to make cloth diapers. Having sewn exactly 2 things in my entire life, I should probably rethink this desire. However, I’ll be at Mom’s on Sunday. She knows how to sew, and has a machine that can actually do a zig zag stitch. In other words, if I’m gonna do it, it needs to be done right now!
- I love our new house, but it would be nice if the whole house humidifier that I was so stoked about actually did something. I know that I screwed up and forgot to actually turn the water on to the unit, but I fixed that recently. I’m still getting shocked every time I go to open up the fridge. (Not enough to be a food deterrent, though.)
And a picture for your enjoyment:
Compare that to the ones of Pidge in her sweater.
