I couldn’t resist showing a progress report picture of my shrug. It’s going along rather quickly now and I wish I could work on it 24/7 until it’s done. But this stupid work thing keeps getting in the way! 😉
This time around the measurements are right on gauge! I guess sz 5 needles were the ticket. I have my knitting group tonight and can’t wait to go and knit.
I might have to go late though as I have to make some food for Jack for tomorrow. Let me tell you though… I have not had any cooking mojo for quite some time now. I just don’t know how my mom had a fresh dinner on the table every night. It takes herculean efforts for me not to call for takeout. My sister is great at getting fresh, exciting food on the table every night too. While I can cook rather well, it’s just not my focus right now. I am way too obsessed absorbed with knitting and sewing.
Good news! I am going to test drive some sewing machines this weekend. My friend Rachey (Rachael) and her husband are driving out to NJ this Saturday. I, of course, invited myself casually mentioned that there were some sewing machine stores in that area that I’ve been meaning to check out. Woo hoo! They’re picking Jack and me up Saturday morning and I could come back early that same evening with a new sewing machine!!! I could maybe even finish my top for the Spring Top Sewalong on time. Wouldn’t that be nice! The only fly in the ointment is Jack’s nap. I am hoping we can time it so that he can nap in the car. Here’s to hoping!
There’s a new class at Sew Fast Sew Easy that I am considering taking; Kenneth King is teaching a 5-class series on Moulage for a pant pattern. The only pre-req is the class I already took, but I’m not sure I have the kind of sewing perspective or experience for this course. What do you think? Am I being a wuss?
Happy knitting and sewing!
