The ugly sweater - a work in progress - 03.03.14
Ah yes. So this has become more of a dress than anything else and a few days ago I just stopped all pretense of following a pattern and started freestyling around. Is this the correct way to knit arms? I don’t know. But so far, it has been working out for me.
Please know, I’m wearing short jeans and a pullover under this, so while the sweater does seem extremely bulky and lumpy, it’s not only due to my lack of skills, it’s yarn qualities or because of my - admittedly - plump figure.
Would I buy a thing like this? Surely not. But it has been kind of educational. And I’ll probably redo the neckline when I’m finished.
My first sweater - a WIP - February 2014
You don’t know how often I frogged the whole thing and re-did it.
This is 1,5 balls in, I’m loosely following this pattern, but as you can see, mine looks a little bit different and it’s not just because of the yarn…
Chair WIP - 18.01.2014
This is the result of 3 hours of work. Now I’m out of sanding paper grit size 40.
(And don’t start with: ‘Oh, I would never use a sanding paper rougher than 80 because it scratches the wood.’ Just don’t.. )
But I did get a beautiful cover fabric for under 20€ so that was nice. ^.^
The sad reality that is our chairs - January the 14th, 2014
Even though it looks like it’s prime is long gone, this oak chair is still extremely comfortable.
However, it is a major buzzkill to pick up dozens of little pieces of foam from the floor on a daily basis. Clearly, something has to be done.
Thus, I have decided to restore it. And if that goes well (*snort*), I’ll do the others, too. Someday. Yes.
Yellow Cowl - 06.01.2014
First finished project this year! (I think.)
There was this ball of yarn and I still had these beautiful buttons and well, I’ll just catch up on my sleep when I’m old and infirm.
