Craft or Bust Week 38 Check-In and Roundup (September 19-25)

The holiday season's coming up — where are you, CoBers? Surely you have gifts to make that you could count toward your CoB crafting ... ;) In the meantime, it's back to me and Jessica, neck and neck!

Roundup of Week 37: What We Crafted From September 12-18

Last time, on Craft or Bust...

  • Jessica worked on Karl's gloves some more, and witnessed the invaluable power of the lifeline when she noticed the thumb gussets just weren't coming out the way she wanted. She also knit the pieces for a D&D themed bag, also for Karl, and knit some more of That Mitten.

Check-in for Week 38: What Have You Done Lately? (September 19-25)

Recycled sweaterMy crafty gears are a-grinding ... Last Sunday, I was at the Florida Fiber-In in the morning and back here at S&C headquarters by afternoon. We went to the park to refresh our brains after the stressful and sleep-deprived drive home, during which I was uncharacteristically worried about something having gone wrong at the house. (Thankfully, nothing did go wrong. That I noticed. ;)) I took pictures and some video at the park, which I still need to upload. I also baked chocolate cookies. Monday, no craftiness, aside from buying some lobster claw clasps. Tuesday, I photographed some of the first mate's jewelry and sorted ex-trashed belongings. (Does the latter count as creative?) Wednesday, there was more sorting of ex-trash and more chain mail jewelry photos, and I also cast on the Bainbridge Scarf, my first continental knitting project. Thursday, I put together a craft show application (yayyy!) and did a bunch of research on fibers for some handspun yarn. Friday, I knit some more of the Bainbridge Scarf, baked beer bread, and ordered some Cotswold locks. Saturday, I did more research on fibers and dyes for handspun yarn, and sacrificed a thrift store sweater to the Fiber Recycling Gods. Apparently as a reward, I won some yarn from the Grad School Knitter (and that's a link to her blog)! Then I finished the body of the Bainbridge Scarf and added green leaf-shaped ties — done! ;D
