#day100 of #100daysofmaking: More #rosecityrollers but with an added lace and cable pattern I put together to make the semisolid of the #jilldraperyarn more interesting. The yarn is beautiful as is but that beauty wouldn't be as obvious in short socks. So some pattern.
#day97 of #100daysofmaking: Sadly I found two holes in my son's Slates and Balustrades hat - I suspect my daughter and scissors. I was pretty discouraged but I finally decided the best way to repair it was to knot the cut ends together and use the yarn I thankfully had left (and actually was able to find easily!) to sew the hole closed, catching the dropped stitches and making a gauge attempt to recreate the knits and purls. The left is the inside with knots and the right is one of the repaired spots just above my thumb. It isn't terribly obvious because the wrinkly waffle pattern masks the uneven square but it's more obvious in person. Not great but not horrible. It'll do. #visiblemending #crappymending
#day96 of #100daysofmaking: Made a long time ago, I finally wore the socks from @lollipopyarn in Cutie Patootie to work. I am finally going to start wearing my hand knit socks to work... It's time to actually wear some knit things!
#day95 of #100daysofmaking: I and two of my friends went to visit my friend who just had a baby boy but I don't think any of us remembered to take any pictures of the tiny cutie! I made him this little bearded hat, newborn size but his head was tiny and this hat will be enormous. The beard turned out quite large also, so instead of sewing it onto the hat, I attached it with buttons so that they could be worn separately and maybe I'll make him a bigger hat for next year to attach the beard to. The baby's daddy (used to) have a giant long beard and so I thought it only appropriate for his son to match.
After I listed my interests, it sure seems as if my life must be pretty scattered. I'm not sure how I have time to do any of those things after work, after cleaning, after making dinner, after unpacking boxes (just moved into my first house!)... but then again, I always set aside some time to sit down and watch some Law & Order, some CSI and do a little crochet while I watch...
