My sewing machine is still in the shop and is going to need a new part, and I have no idea how much time for the fix... I miss it! I borrowed my mother's machine but it can't handle the machine quilting I was in the middle of when the sewing disaster happened.
So, I bet you didn't know a giraffe could knit, did you?? Well, I can! And I have been using my time to try to finish up some knitting projects.
This is a hat that should fit a 9-10 year old. That is why it doesn't fit the doll head. If it had fit the doll, I would have been very discouraged with my poor knitting abilities.
This is a scarf I started ages ago with some leftover yarn. Unfortunately, I didn't really have enough yarn to make a very long scarf. I am hoping some small person will get this scarf and find it to be just the right length.
This is a baby blanket. It is made of wool. I was hoping to send it to Afghans for Afghans, but I don't think it will meet the size criteria they gave us. I started it before I knew the size restrictions. I'm a slow knitter, though. Maybe by the time I finally finish this thing, they'll be asking for smaller blankets. I hope so. Most people around here would not jump at the chance at a wool baby blanket, but for the Afghans project, that is what they want.
I really want to learn how to knit mittens and socks! One of these days, I'll find a way to learn those skills. Meanwhile, I can putz along on my current projects and hope that my sewing machine comes home soon!
