Sometime outside forces interrupt my sewing time and in this case my mother and son are to blame. I'm still waiting on her to send my stretch piping and because I share a desk with my son I am unable to set up my "sewing studio". So I picked up the knitting needles instead. I saw this yarn on sale at Micheal's and for $2.00 you can't beat that and since I had a coupon, why not right? It is Loops & Threads Woolike yarn and it is super soft! It is a super fine weight yarn that uses a US size 2 needles or E/4 Crochet hook. You will see the complete stats when you click on the link. I knew I wanted to knit something but wasn't sure. Low and behold my Muse was looking at me and persuaded me to knit a parka.
I'm sorry did you ever wonder what is going on with my blue fitted skirt? Well don't worry after a trip to Hancock Fabrics AND Joann's I could not find a navy zipper!! How crazy is that? Not even one to shorten? I don't know what's up with that but I will check again this weekend. That the fun with sewing in Charlotte, sometimes you can find everything you need and sometimes you can't find anything you want. I will make another trip sometimes later this week so I can finish my blue skirt. I basted up and so far it looks fabulous!
I'm sure the parka will be done before my mail arrives. In the meantime I will keep knitting along.
Sewing and Knitting and loving everything about it.
