I had not been feeling like crafting for the last three months. I did some projects but nothing big, mending or alteration was what mainly happened for me. So not much to share but two mega failed projects
A pair of slippers and a headband for a little princess, sadly the slippers didn’t fit her (although I did make it for a year old size). I still have to make another pair for her and it’s been a month. I know I am being lazy but it looks like I am slowly getting my mojo back and soon I’ll update on this project.
A lace shrug made on request for Bhabhi. Sadly after washing I realised that the underarms are not going to fit her and so again I have to start a new one. I am still not sure about what to do with it.
I am finishing my UFO’s now a days and happy to say I have not many… here is what I managed to cast off today and blocked it as well
my first knitted doily 🙂
It was started in October 2013. It is Semco Fairy Knitting Design No. 9 a free knitting pattern. The pattern includes instructions for making 5 different sized cloths from the same patten and can be worked with yarn of any weight from size 60 thread on 1mm needles all the way up to fingering weight cotton on size 3.75mm needles. I used the light fingering weight which I had in my stash.
Yesterday we did learn how to know the weight of the purchased item, also we did the comparisons of the weights of the items.
And the fun part: we made jelly and laughed when it kept wiggling!!
I also made almost instant mango ice-cream for us…. On my knitting I was able to find out the mistake and did frog the project to restart it from the last correct row. not much progress on the project though.
one month gone and I have nothing much to share…. I am busy between work, children and home. crafts are happening but the pace is so slow and some w.i.p.s lying around the house. the only thing I managed to finish is this dress
Initially I took another lace for the neck but then changed the design …
So the year 2013 is about to end and this is the time of gifting.. I don’t follow the Christmas gifting but still managed to finish up some pending gifting projects and did some quick gifts as well. If you did follow my earlier posts you would remember I was knitting a sweater and was about to quit… I managed to finish it but was not quite happy with the neck and so redid the neckband and now it is ready to be gifted.
I was making the same dress as the one for Achu, but I had less of the solid colour fabric, so I choose to use it in body. Now I was cutting the front and halfway I realised I did something wrong! I forgot to fold the fabric twice … So I had to make up for the mistake and this came out as result!
