I've got the sewing bug again. I am actually working on a prototype of a possible Christmas present. There are a few of us girls that exchange "crafty" holiday gifts each year. It can be tough choosing the right thing to make. After all making one of something is a lot different than making 3 of the same thing. And you don't want to pick something that is too complicated (or too time consuming) for the same reason. I think I may have the perfect gift, but can't mention what is it just in case one of the girls reads this. The prototype is just about done and I see a few things I want to change in my next model.
As for the knitting that has been going on - presenting two of the projects for Project Spectrum April:
The jury is divided on the gender identity of this next item. Some say they would only put it on a girl and others say it could go either way. Apparently the color purple is the problem.
Either way, it is a quick knit. Maybe I will try to have a little conversation with one of the soon to be new moms and see what vibes I get. After all, I don't want to make something that is not going to get used.
Stay tuned for a little tutorial in my next post. It does involve wool but not in the way you might think.
