I am so grateful that being a maker is at my core. I'm not sure what I would be doing during this time of staying home if I weren't able to create.
I had a couple of months where I got myself a tad overwhelmed with the frantic beginnings and learning curves, but I've settled in and am happily working my way through projects.
When I left you I had just finished ranunculus....almost. But it turns out I didn't really like the twisted knit ribbing and I thought the entire sweater was too long. So I ripped it back with an after thought lifeline, threw in some decreases and did an cord Bind-Off. While I was at it I decided there must be a better way to join the two ends of an icord when working in the round and there is! I used these directions.
Then I turned my attention to fabric project bags. The dog print was a request from one of my daughters for a pouch to hold her drawing pencils. I bought this fabric on an early March outing to Roxannes in Carpenteria. Friends Carole of Creative Castle and Heather Kingsley Heath who was teaching at the time accompanied me. Little did I know what a last outing it would be! I was glad to use the fabric.
