I finished a scarflette. Don’t you love the color?
If you follow along on Facebook you probably know that I got a treadle sewing machine. Singer model 115, 1921. Bought it from the original owner (I even have the old, hand-written receipt). Wonderful condition. I scrubbed down the parlor cabinet which is why I took the head (machine) out and left it on the built-in in the breakfast nook. Looks nice there though. Check out the mermaid details. Now I just need to learn how to use it.
I’m onto making a cardigan. My carpal tunnel and tendonitis issues have not really gotten in the way of my knitting, even though I’ve been working up a storm (on the computer). I’m not going to question it, just accept it and be grateful. I mean, look how far along I am! I’m changing up the pattern a bit: 2×2 rib instead of cables, half or 3/4 sleeves instead of short, and adding a mustard-gold stripe or two running through the cuffs and waist ribbing. I’m looking forward to making the button band as I’ve never made one before. The main color is “Squirrel Heather,” isn’t that cute? Both are Knit Picks Swish DK.Add a Comment
