I managed to get a good deal of sewing in after getting the kids to bed tonight. I’m nearly done with 5 new Marvel and Star Trek project bags. I hope to get photos and get them up on Etsy within a few days!
I cut the sewing short in order to squeeze in some knitting as well, but it’s been frustrating. I have these two lovely balls of Berroco Alpaca, one a light brown, the other a friend overdyed with short repeats of yellow, green, and very light brown. I’m having trouble fitting them with a project. I tried a “Noro Striped Scarf,” but there isn’t enough contrast between the two balls, and it ended up looking muddled. I do want to use them together, though…. Maybe something involving blocks of color instead of stripes. I’m almost tempted to make a Go-Go Garter scarf: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/go-go-garter-stitch-scarf
I’ve been feeling drawn to garter stitch since seeing a lovely, simple garter stitch cowl on a passerby yesterday…. Ohhh, we’ll see.
