See? TWO Beaudelaire. Love them.
NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION
Necessity forced me to use the sewing machine this week.
Five straightish lines. I made a knitting pattern holder.
Take one sheet of craft magnet (I got mine on ebay but I'm sure you could get it at other craft shops). Cover it in fabric and sew it on. Don't bother to match thread and bobbin colour (I only have one reel of cotton in the house anyway).
Take one strip of craft magnet strip and cover in fabric. Sew it on too.
Use it to hold knitting patterns and mark your place.
I only put those two above items in to hide the disaster which lies ahead. Remember I said I was going to dye the Mystery Stole red and that it was going to be blocked and beautiful.
Well, two out of three ain't bad.
It's dayglo orange. I'm not joking, they could use it as a beacon to do night roadworks.
At least my bed looks good. The cleaner came.
END ON A HIGH NOTE AT LEAST
May I present to you the progress on Peacock Feathers. I cannot tell you how wonderful the knitpicks options needle is for knitting lace.
