Joining Carole & friends for Three Things on Thursday...
I've been doing this NaBloPoMo thing for a few years now, and I thought it might be fun to look back at a few November 18ths of the past.
On November 18, 2009, the first year that I participated in this month-long exercise, I'd shared finished a scarf!
I ended up giving that scarf to my mom. I love that colorway, and the scarf turned out great, but I don't know what happened to it!
At long last, I'd begun the prep work (clearing space) for a little remodeling project and among the things I found in the process were a couple of knitting pattern pages torn from magazines.
I'd knit both of those patterns in the mid '80s when I lived in Oregon.
"...it's this little dress that made me a knitter"
This photo of the actual dress was not included in the original post -- I must have found it later. Quite the "little" project for a relative newbie, eh? Look at all those elements!
In 2016, I was getting messy and creative...
Dyeing yarn! I'm going to have to work on making time for this again. I miss it so much and acquired some new-to-me equipment a few months ago that I'm dying to try, not to mention the stash of ready-to-colorize yarn!
One of the bases I'm excited to dye -- and then knit -- is KnitPicks' Felici Worsted. It's the same fiber content -- 75% Superwash Merino Wool + 25% Nylon -- as the sock yarn, but WORSTED! And when I do eventually get around to it, that's what I'll use to knit Viv's new socks! They ought to wear so much better.
It's always so interesting to dive into the archives... thanks for humoring me!
