It’s been too hot here for too long and I’m not used to that… Or do I just have too much time on my hands? Whatever… I have just finished my next KnS project for the third time…Third time? You say. Yeah, third time and I’m packaging it up right now and sending it off before I have time to change my mind again. Sheesh, this never used to happen.
But I did learn a few things – the best way to make a buttonhole
in a single layer fabric – you’ll see when the pattern comes out – I feel
absolutely brilliant – no sewing, no pick-ups, no tails to darn in.
– when you need to add a new ball of yarn, move the carriage
to the other side and start it there so the tails are on opposite sides – if
it’s a sleeve, this is like making yarn marks for aligning the seam (good
stuff) and if it’s a cardigan front, having the tails at either side means
weaving them in at either side instead of having two tails to get rid of in the
I also learned that there is no point in trying to use the
garter bar to make half a row of garter stitch – I won’t explain that because
it’s just makes more work, trust me... and I learned there is no point trying
to have straight hair in this weather…
