It's been hard for me to find time to knit lately. Between kids and classes and my new obsession with getting fit (lost 3 lbs. already!) I haven't had alot of sit down, relax and knit time. I've been working on a pair of gloves for my sister. The whole of winter will be done by the time I get these bad boys done, I'm afraid. lol She wanted fingerless gloves with a cap that can be pulled over the fingers to turn them into mittens. I've had to play with the pattern a bit because the yarn that I'm using for the caps, though very soft and fuzzy, really can't be knit with small needles. However, I made some improvisations, and the first one looks good. I've gotten the second one started, so that's an improvement. Wish me luck in finishing this up. I'd really like to get them to her soon :)
This blog is mainly to document my journey in Work: Knitting, Crochet and learning to do things such as Tatting, Netting, Drawn Thread Work and Sewing. Plus anything cool I find along the way :)
Lately, I have become really interested in 19th century fashion! But I also have a huge interest in expanding my skills with the goal that eventually, I will be able to make my clothes. I love to wear Salwar Kameez, but I want to be able to design and make my own, especially outfits in fabrics that are suited to colder weather since I live in upstate NY!
