This should be a ta-da! post. But it's not, it's a show of SHAME! Surely you know what's coming. Yup, my naughty socks are done. But because they put me through such hell, I decided to spite them back by giving them a "less than" finish
three needle bind off toes. Yeah, who's laughing now, PUNK!
Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Yarn: Ginseng by Madelinetosh (tosh sock) + yellow fleece artist (no label)
Quantity: 1 skein of ginseng + 12g of yellow for heel and toes
Modifications: three needle bind off, opposite heel and toe in contrasting colour.
so called because the top wasn't quilted by me; 'twas made that way. My backing fabric (also a linen/cotton blend) arrived yesterday. It was out of the postman's hands and into the wash (together with the batch from M is for Make) in under 10 mins! After which I pressed and basted the quilt sandwich. Basting - the quilting step which involves attaching the quilt top to the batting and backing fabric - is the step I heretofore found tedious but now don't mind so much. I think this change in attitude is mainly due to being able to lay out the quilt sandwich on my table for the purpose of pinning in place. Bet you I won't feel this way once I attempt basting king size quilts.
I'm itching to get my present sock project off the needles, so I can have yet another go at THE perfect fit cardigan using
a little something I picked up in the Liberty sale last Sunday.
This will be my first time using Rowan yarns and linen/viscose is a blend I think will work well in a lacy summer cardigan. And why not, the perfect fit is bound to be just around the corner...isn't it?
