Forgive me, Reader
A friend has a Rag Blanket for her son that I loved so much, I wanted one for Boyo. I bought the fabric, thread and some cutting supplies (I already owned the sewing machine I just hadn't used it since I made Girly her Daphne costume last year.). Everything is ready to go, but I am waiting on a feeder foot so my seams won't pucker when I am sewing it all together.
Halloween drew near and I decided to make a Trick or Treat bag for Girly this year since we bought her costume. I really should learn to use a pattern. It would make for neater finishing and easier sewing!
Boyo needed a costume too so I bought even more fabric and made him a Tam O'Shanter. I had almost finished the stuffed bagpipes, but almost is a far cry from done and it is still not done. Apparently if you are going to start a new hobby, you also need a new stack of UFO's.
The kilt is a Feileadh Mor and isn't sewn, but I did make the wee Sporran. I used a length of black elastic for the belt. Leather isn't so much practical on a baby nor does it do well in and out of a car seat on a waist that is larger than the hips.
Now ordinarily nothing is worn under the kilt, but seeing as it was -3*C and snowing we figured pants were the thing. Also, puddles in the car are not on our "Fun Things to Worry About" list.
Then I decided that Boyo's Rag Blanket would make a good Christmas gift for him and Girly would love one too. So I bought more fabric and cut the squares (still waiting on the foot)
But just to prove that I still love my knitting, here is Boyo wearing a sweater I finally managed to finish. Again, I really must learn to read the pattern. The sleeves are a scootch short. Not enough to worry about though.
Maybe someday I will have another update and it might even have more than one picture of knitting!
