|Pieces for the Mystery Quilts|
In any case, the inability to hand stitch has let my mind drift in other directions and I've found myself with the sudden desire to knit something. I took myself off to Ravelry and after much searching have decided to make this cowl, Vesper by Wondrlanding.
I think I should probably mention that I'm a beginner knitter. I've made a few things in the past, but thanks to Craftsy and YouTube, I'm hoping I can pull it off. (By the way, Craftsy is having a great sale on all their classes right now. I don't know how long it's going to last though.) I've been practicing, practicing, practicing my stitches with progressively harder patterns and I'm feeling pretty comfortable with them right now.
FYI - I really recommend the Improve Your Knitting class with Patty Lyons. She has some great pactical tips for beginning and advanced knitters. She also demonstrates the different types of knitting - Continental vs. English vs. Eastern, etc. It's one I'm sure I'll watch again and again.
Recently, I moved a chair into my sewing room. I wanted to see if the scale would work in the space before buying a new one. It quickly became a big hit.
Now I'll go furniture shopping to find one that's just right for the space. I'll have to make sure it's comfy enough for them as well.
Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love.
Ephesians 4:2 (NLT)
