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
