I am prepared for this weekends frog a long! I have gathered a few projects that have layed around unfinished or unused for a while.
Above in the extremely dark picture I have a pullover that never got finished. Too small for anyone I know. A cable scarf made out of the same yarn. Used needles too large, looks frumpy. A brown linen bag never completed. I got sidetracked. And, a purple linen heart I knit and then started taking apart shortly there after because I needed just a little of the purple yarn for another project
This Zip up cardigan is knit in lovely brown wool that I bought from a sheep farm years ago. I tried several times to make a sweater for myself. Finally I made a sweater for my son. He has worn it once, maybe twice. It is too itchy. (grumble, grumble) If I rip it apart I will have the yarn again. It is yarn that does not want to be anything! I will instead....felt it....and turn it into a purse! For me! (ungrateful boy) To tell the truth Patrick was so sweet about it. Only when I cornered him and asked him to tell me the honest truth about the sweater did he confess. He didn't want to hurt my feelings. (sweet but ungrateful boy) I promised to knit him something non-skritchy.
Last in the line up, a sewing project gone terribly wrong. I LOVE this fabric. Years ago I decided to make pants and a long vest to match. Half way through I stopped. What was I thinking of. This fabric was not meant to be on my short wide legs! And a matching vest? I am just not a matchy poo person. So I am hoping it is enough to line the purse I will make out of the felted sweater or maybe to make a quilted purse.
I am two days into school and tomorrow is a full moon. Children and full moons are a bad mix. Children bounce off the walls and test every fibre of patience a teacher has. All in all the children are independent, smart individuals. What you want children to be. I can't wait to see their learning curve this year!
