I’ve switched to turbo knit speed here at Stitchknit. Fall arrived and I wanted to make some new items that were floating around in my head as ideas. I hadn’t worked with huge needles for years & decided to give them a try again, to get something very chunky looking but truly lightweight…….
Light as air, bright red cowl
Cozy cowl…..warm, yet lightweight
And, since September is Nat’l Sewing Month, I have a stack of fabric slated for scarves too! Here is the first one …………
Lightweight, extra large scarf……in a brilliant shade of orange!
See these in my shop now………..and watch for the new creations as they make it from my cutting table to the shop!
I haven’t been sitting idle here! Although, doing way too much sitting! Lots of waiting time, which is never a problem, but an opportunity for me to keep my hands busy.
Here’s a couple of my current projects:
Crocheted baby blanket. Started as a sample for a crochet class here at Stitchknit. Loved the look, so am going to finish it up and get it in the shop.
2nd blanket using the Blackberry Salad pattern stitch of rows and rows of bobbles. (a bit addicted to bobbles here!)
Love cables~ This scarf is a popular one in my local shop, as well as on Etsy. Seem to have one of these on the needles most of the time!
Next project? Hoping to get some sewing time, to create some fabric scarves for the Etsy shop. Have a large stack of fabrics ‘auditioning’ for a spot!
New beginnings here at Stitchknit….in that I’ve started to set up a working sewing room where I see my local clients. The true workroom is rarely picture worthy, but my new little corner of the world is shaping up to be a space I’m loving.
Still a work in progress, but a workable space already. The area serves as my reception area for local clients as well as the space I use to teach sewing, knitting and crochet classes.
A benefit I was surprised about is the time I’ve gained by setting up the area so I can sew while waiting for clients to arrive for their appointments.
I still have a long list of what I’m going to add to the space, so be prepared for more pictures! Next on the list is an ironing board/iron. Hauling equipment up for classes has become one of my least favorite parts of teaching!
That’s what we call things that just seem to ‘walk away’ from where anyone had seen them last.
The latest mia is a scarf I knit during the last Olympics. (can’t even remember if it was Summer or Winter) I do know the scarf exists and was totally finished, and even snapped a couple pictures…..
This piece was supposed to be listed in my Etsy shop before the holidays….but, I have still not found where I put it for safe keeping. Such fun to knit, huge bobbles and a gorgeous sangria red.
Anyone else have things that seem to have vanished into thin air??
