I hope you all had a great weekend. Saturday I hung out on fabric row or what we call in Philadelphia, 4th Street. While doing so I got a chance to hang out with my knitting gal pals Lisa and Robin. We had a blast. Robin had asked me to sew her a few drawstring sacks to hold her larger knitting projects in, so we went there to pick out fabric. I made 7 of them last night.
So far I have 2 done for her. I made another 2 that I'll be gifting, and I have 3 leftover. I still need to make a few more for her and for myself.
I didn't get any spinning done this past weekend like I'd hoped. I'll try to tackle that by the weekend. I don't know if I mentioned this before, but my next sewing project is New Look 6828. I'm making the dress with long sleeves.
I have the pieces cut out. I still have to iron them, check the length on the dress and pick out my fabric. I now also have all the material I want to use for the Burda vest/waistcoat 01-2009-124.
I figure I'll try it in muslin first as this is my first Burda. If it turns out alright, I'll definitely be making more designs from these magazines.
In knitting news, I'm still working on my socks and I'm slowly moving along on butterfly, my newest pattern. I had to back out 6 rows today because I forgot a yarnover, but I'm moving along now. That's pretty much it right now. I'm cold and I need a cup of hot chocolate or maybe some hot tea. Mmmmmmmmm...
