Yarn Along -11 May 2011
This week's Yarn Along isn't a project on my needles. I have to do some sewing before I can get back to the knitting part. The purse is coming along nicely. I found that I can knit all 4 parts of each square on double-pointed needles -instead of making 4 pieces and sewing them to make a square. I did change the last few rows though. The moss stitch in the pattern was much too tight, so I put in a couple of rows of yo, p2tog. I'll have to make notes on my Ravelry page.
I'm 'reading' Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits . Wow, it has some really cool clothes. I'll have to get some basic clothes finished for Ella before I make any of these. Though I'm sure the patterns will look just as nice without all the embellishment. I like the shapes of the dresses. I also like that the book goes to size 12, so many books stop about 6.
Looks like we finally have a barn cat that's good at caring for her kittens not just good at having kittens. Midnight is taking good care of her babies.
