Sweaterday, with a little bit of cheating on the side

Too long

You’ll have to forgive the crappy webcam photo, but I could not get any timed self-portraits to really work. I need to enlist a friend who’s not afraid of my camera to help me out with real Finished Object photos. I just sewed in the zipper this morning, and that was less stressful than I thought it might be. Please note, my sleeves came out WAY too long. I have ideas for how I could have fixed this, but I’ll save that for my overall “debriefing” of this sweater.

This week, when I wasn’t working on Petrie (the back is finished, the front is almost half-way done!), I was indulging in my other new crafty pursuit, weaving.

Weaving project!

This is my second project! I haven’t washed and dried my first project, and there are no photos of it, but I wanted to have something to show for my quietness this week. The warp yarn is a brown cotton I picked up… somewhere. The weft is the remnants of my Fresh from the Cauldron Debbie Pelt, which I used for my Ishbel. If my calculations are correct, I should be able to get a skinny scarf out of these remnants.

I’ve got a lot of “non-public” projects that need my attention, but hopefully I’ll still be able to weave, and knit Petrie, and take real pictures of Vivian this week!

  1. Beautiful! Have you seen my Mum’s weave blog yet? She *loves* to help new weavers, if you ever needed any help just drop her a line I know she’d love it:

    The fact that I didn’t take to weaving when I was younger was a sad thing for her I think. But I’m redeeming myself in the spinning department 😛
