I think it is time for a new tradition…WiP Wednesday (that’s Work in Progress for those of you wondering.) I tend to spend most of my Wednesdays with hook or needle in hand, or typing up new patterns, so I may as well share the progress with you each Wednesday evening.
I have been working on a set of patterns for spa~style items to sell at craft fairs. I posted the first pattern today. I have been hooking away creating the rest of the patterns. I may even translate some of them over to knit patterns as well!
Lots of math in the past few days. I think I have finally gotten the sizing down. My, it is head spinning to make a coat pattern that sizes from XS to 5X!
As you can see, I have made it to the armpits of the Kat coat pattern. I am happy with the progress.
Then there is this. Knit one, Purl one, Knit one, Purl one…forever. It is a scarf for a friend’s husband, and it is taking…well…forever.
The girls and I had a nice pasta dinner thanks to the crock pot. Mmmm. There was a time that I thought making sauce in the crock pot was a sin, but it still tastes great and is so easy!
We also had some mini 3~2~1~cakes. So very simple! Take a box of Angel Food cake mix, and a box of another kind of cake mix (I used Devil’s food for this one, it just seemed right somehow.) Pour them together and mix them up well. Store in an airtight container. Put 3T of mix into a mug, then add in 2T of water, stir well, place in microwave and zap it for 1 minute. 3~2~1~Cake! I then dumped them onto plates and topped them with some Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, and some Nutella. Yummy goodness!
The Head Form Adventures have begun. I made the first one. After swatching I found that a 4.00mm hook gave me the right gauge for the newborn size. However, after making it I found that it was closer to the infant size. I guess I will try again with a size larger needle to make the infant form, and a size smaller to make the newborn. Well, I did say it was going to be an adventure!
I made a little sack full of rice to put in the bottom of the head form to give it some weight. Aquarium gravel would work as well, and won’t expand if you get it wet.
Well, the girls are tucked in, we have screamed “I love you, bye!” across the house at each other for several minutes, as is the tradition, and I am debating my next pot of tea. I think I will mix some lemon and ginger teas, and work on my Kat coat for the rest of the evening.
Talk to you soon, my friends!
