My whole married life I have heard from my mother in law that you shouldn't stitch on Sundays, so let's talk about what I did yesterday, ok?
I finished quilting section 4 of 4 on Matt's college quilt! Those last few pieces were quite a slog, and I am not even doing anything fancy, mostly sewing along the seams. So then I sewed the sections together, and spent the afternoon working on hand sewing the backing down.
On the knitting front, I made Ishbel for the second round of Camp Loopy, which is a virtual knitting camp sponsored by the Loopy Ewe.
Custom Fit. I am super excited about it, and volunteered to be a beta tester. So I will be testing this program out and knitting a sweater from my own personalized pattern through most of August. (See how nicely I live in denial about the fact I will also be taking my baby off to college then too?) This program will be great for every knitter, of course, but especially for those of us who are really far from the average figure. Sometimes all of my scribbled in changes, on top of the "knit in this pattern while AT THE SAME time doing these neck decreases", all of these things at once just blow my mind a little bit. I am excited to get a pattern that makes my scribbling obsolete!
I have been swatching- I think I will make a simple v-neck cardigan with maybe just one row of lace along the button bands in the front. I found a lovely lace pattern called Holland Lace in Barbara Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Stitches.
