Thankyou to everyone out there who offered me advice with my spinning. An especially big thankyou goes out there to my mum for spending most of her afternoon today researching different techniques of spinning for me.
I was a bit under the weather today so I decided that it would be a good idea if I stayed home. My plan was to relax and spend some quiet time with my daughter, kind of. First up my little princess wasn't well either so she slept from 10am to 2pm, that gave me 4hrs to myself. What was I to do? I decided to utilise this time and headed to my sewing room. I construct the top of my Doll Quilt, it didn't take as long as I thought it would. Here it is
I'm still yet to add the border. I just love log cabin and it's so much easier then it looks. All you do is start off with a square what ever size you want, mine is 2'x2', and just keep sewing strips down the sides, round and round, measuring and cuting as you go.After I'd finished that I retired to the lounge and hooked into some more knitting while I waited for my little darling to wake up. My first mitten following the pattern that I posted last week was horrible. The pattern just feels all wrong!!! Maybe it's the knitter not the pattern. I ended up pulling it undone and starting from scratch, making up a pattern as I went. This is what both mittens look like, the first one being the one that I have unwound....
Anyway, I'm itching to get stuck back into my spinning now that I'm feeling much better, so I'll sign off for tonight and catch you all tomorrow.
