I’m back! Yes, one month into 2017 and I’m already falling down on my goals to be more active in the online sewing community
In my defense though I’ve become a bit more politically active!
And hey, bonus! Handmade outerwear in the wild!
Unfortunately, my sewjo has taken a dive. I’m still half-heartedly working on the Carolyn PJs…. but what I really need to do is get in there and try to organize that space in general. Hopefully, another trip to IKEA will be on the horizon soon! [This will the second trip to IKEA, the first time we went they were out of key items I needed for the sewing room 😦 ]
On the other hand, as is usually the case, my knitting is on fire!
Around Christmas I frogged my Armande sweater and started over…. I may or may not have thought I knew better than the pattern directions and may or may not have been promptly proven wrong
I’ve made A LOT of progress since then though and have already lapped my original “this is fucked I need to start over” point.
I’m also still plugging away at my arm warmers….but I’m getting kinda bored with them and am thinking of moving them to the back burner.
I definitely see how people fall into the second sock (in this case arm warmer) syndrome 😦
So…. I’m finally getting started on a scarf for the husband! Aaannnd tackling another 2017 goal– unselfish knitting/sewing 🙂
With a little luck I’ll finish it in time for next winter
