In this episode: Bias binding; finished objects; crafting chaos; plum blossoms; works in progress; and palette decisions.
The level of craft chaos was high this week, but…
Lilly’s retro-vibe pinnies are finished! Several knitsibs have expressed an interest in an adult-sized version. I’m still looking, but if you know of something similar, drop a comment, please.
The pattern is Bias Trimmed Apron from Little Things to Sew, by Oliver & S, in lightweight linen fabric with bias binding in designer fabrics purchased from this UK eBay seller. Plum blossom is just about the loveliest name for a magnetic closure (top, centre) ever.
The Sock is not at a very interesting place, but you can see a bit of a progress in this WIP. The yarn is Coop Knits, Socks, Yeah! in the colour Labrodorite, and it actually reads more dull green than grey. I am happy with my decision to drop the reverse stockinette, and to make the diamond shapes both wider and taller. Progress will be slow.
There was also quite a bit of yarny goodness in the arrival of the darks for my Magic Circles Afghan palette (lower right corner of the left image). The interspersed cakes are handspun and/or variagated, and I think they might be too dull, chromatically speaking. The basket of clear bright colours is calling to me, and I can’t wait to begin. Yes, I’m using 100% wool, and the blanket will be designated for HUMANS ONLY. I may have to post a sign.
