On these cold Michigan winter nights, I enjoy curling up in my chair and do some type of handwork. Watching Downton. Or Scandal. This is my current project--a black/white/gray ripple afghan. Mostly because I had a lot of black/white/gray yarn and am trying to empty some of my yarn stash. The nice thing about this is--it's covering my legs while I work on it. When it's done, it's going in my car. In these cold climates, one never knows when a blanket will be needed. Just in case.
When I venture out into the frigid, snowy, frozen tundra, I buy patterns. Like these.
I'm still working on pants. There has been a lot of foul language in my sewing room while I attempt to fit them. I have a pretty good muslin, but had a mental block when trying to transfer a couple of the alterations to the flat pattern. It really shouldn't have been so difficult, but I couldn't get my head around it. When I finally wised up, I made the changes and am ready to cut a pant. At last! I will have those pants ready for the Designer challenge this month. Do you hear me, Katherine?
