queue has grown as a result and a few coveted skeins have found their way into my mailbox.
baptismal gown has stalled out just past the waist and Peter's sock is chugging along in its stead. Last week I careened through this pair of tube socks for Sebastian, after I realized his birthday is fast approaching. I was going to say something disparaging about giving socks as a gift, but never mind. Wooly handmade ones are better than anything. I really had to resist the urge to slip them on his feet as soon as they were done. I wrapped them up already to avoid the temptation entirely. Now that it's 80 degrees again I think they're safe.
crocheted hexagon blanket. A post on Instagram compelled me to pull it out and consider it again.
I pulled out lots of my sewing supplies too. Am I making your head spin yet? I sorted through everything I'll need to complete my mostly-finished Alabama Chanin maxi skirt in a delicious cocoa jersey. Then, after realizing Lucy had suddenly outgrown her skirts, I cut out three for her in the next size up. I used the remnants from the last batch and a length of salvaged wool plaid given to me by a friend.
At some point during these last few weeks, I got super excited about appliquéing flowers on some of my boring striped shirts. I've done two for myself and plan to add some embellishments to Lucy's secondhand Hannah Andersson dresses.Etsy shop with a few versions of these flowers. Any pointers would be so appreciated!
