Wow – what a great response to my question about other crafts – I’m glad to be in such great company, and I hope my quest to learn to sew goes well! I’m waiting on a part for my machine, though I do now have a copy of the manual, and I’ve been working on my knitting (of course!)
My next sweater is going to be Salina, from Rowan’s Vintage Knits.
Yes, I finally found a yarn. I’m using Rowanspun 4-ply, double stranded. I actually have 2 colors – Jade and a dark blue, and they look great together!
I also finished one of my tsunami socks.
Socks that rock lightweight is surprisingly not light. It’s got to be on the heavy side of fingering, or maybe it’s just very dense. I like knitting with it quite a bit!
I’m also giving serious thought to redoing our attic soon. Marc uses it for his things, but I don’t like to be up there, and I would like a craft area. It has central air and new windows (including skylights) as well as plumbing, but it lacks drywall and needs a new floor (currently a very old linoleum.
Big new windows (at either end.)
What do you all think? I think we can it mostly do ourselves, and I need a house project!
