Roundup of Week 36: What We Crafted From September 6-11
Last time, on Craft or Bust...
- Lesley has recently started back at university and is thus Quite Busy, but she has indeed been crafting! She's been knitting her Sprout Blanket, has one sock half done, and knit a hemp washcloth for a knitting group member who's moving to Halifax.
- Jessica cast on and ripped out Karl's gloves two more times (no one should ever say knitting isn't work ;)), and finally got the cuffs right, so she safeguarded her achievement with a lifeline. (One of my favorite knitting "tools"!) She also cast on a mitten and knit about three inches during a defensive driving class — a good use of time, huh? (And she has also corrected me on my sloppiness from last week's check-in — she's only actually working one job, but she was offered more than one recently, which is where I got confused. :D)
- Susie knitted a Citron (awesome — I saw someone working on a Citron this past weekend, too), deconstructed capitalism, and ordered a spindle.
Check-in for Week 37: What Have You Done Lately? (September 12-18)
Me? On Sunday, I put together a little guide to the Florida Fiber-In for personal use and preregistered for the fiber-in. Monday, I didn't craft, but I did catch up with my Etsy messages. Tuesday, I went through my fabric stash looking for t-shirts to reconstruct and fabric for making a bag; bought some brown cotton seeds; called a local bead shop and put a chasing hammer on hold; and knit 10 rows on the hooded shrug. Wednesday, I took a bunch of wildflower photos on the way back from the post office and whipstitched together my handwoven one-stripe bag. Thursday, I picked up the chasing hammer from the bead shop, uploaded and organized my Dragon*Con Flickr set, and started organizing a list of craft shows to do in the next few months. Friday was "dig through trash for our lost stuff and, once clean again, drive to the Florida Fiber-In" day. Saturday, I attended a bunch of fiber arts demos at the fiber-in, took some video of the fiber-in on my phone, shopped for spinning fiber, knit on the hooded shrug up until my cable needle decided to come apart while I was doing the edging increases, finished spinning the purple sparkly batt I started a while ago, used a niddy noddy for the first time, and learned how to knit continental. Yay!
