I am lounging in a post-Christmas haze of laziness. Well, that is not exactly true. I have been producing…just not in the sewing department. After a busy year sewing, no huge Historical Sew Fortnightly projects due for a bit and no costume events until we leave this deep freeze, I haven’t felt the need to sew for a few days. I have been lounging on the couch knitting random blocks of…well knitting.
I have been making blocks for a knitted quilt with the goal of using up a huge ball of turquoise acrylic wool. This wool is completely useless for Victorian wear because of the color and fiber content and it isn’t a color I’d use for modern wear-too pastel. Lord knows why I bought it. Anyway, I have a book of random knitting stitches and I thought I’d make this turquoise wool up into the blocks using the different stitches. In addition to using up the wool, I will be finding out what these stitches look like and how difficult they might be. Ones that I like, might one day be used in a larger project.
Now, other sewing/costume bloggers resort to using photos of their cat being cute when they have nothing to offer in terms of completed work. In lieu of the cat I don’t have, I give you my dog Ginger.
I could just kiss her…and I do. She has been a sweetie pie sitting on the couch with me as I wallow in my post-Christmas laziness.
