I feel like I’ve gotten nothing done in weeks. Probably because I haven’t! I cast on last week for my second big Bobbi Bear, this time for my oldest son, and he’s been sitting in the wings since about 5 rows in…
I did manage to finish one sock for a friend who requested a pair. Unfortunately, I can’t post pictures of it because it’s supposed to be a surprise to her–the color, the pattern, etc. I really hope the socks fit her–I can’t really try them on because her foot is shorter than mine, although our foot circumference is the same and the sock fit me that way… I can hope, right?
Now, before you laugh yourself right off your chair, keep a few things in mind.
1) I CAN’T SEW. ANYTHING! Especially not in a straight line!
2) This was made using scrap fabric which is supposed to be drapery fabric and lining.
3) I didn’t have any drawstring-type cording available, but I HAD to finish. I’m sure you understand.
Truth be told, I’m actually quite proud of this. I’ve attempted to make no less than two more bags and apparently this first attempt was the closest to being usable. Call it beginner’s (not) luck. 🙂
In other news, we’re gearing up for a last-fling-before-school type of vacation at the end of the week. We’re going to Florida and we’ve decided to drive this time. From Illinois. I’m beginning to think we might regret this decision, but only time will tell. We had planned on housing the kittens with grandma, but her apt is being renovated and the kittens could easily escape. We thought about boarding them at our vet, but considering the health troubles thus far, neither of us want to introduce more bacteria and other buggies by putting them in a kennel situation. Do you see where I’m headed with this? The kittens will be traveling with us to Florida. In the car. With 3 kids.
Yes, we’re nuts.
Hope you had a great weekend, and I’ll do my best to post at least once more before leaving for Fla.
