For one whole week, I've been putting off my blog posting because I wanted to finish the sweater. On Monday, I made a skirt. Should I blog? No, I'll wait for that sweater to be finished. By Wednesday, I've begun turning the heel on the Hedgerow Socks. Should I blog? No, I'll wait for that sweater. Today, I've been harvesting indigo and getting ready to dye yarn (Remember that lovely Bellingen yarn I won in the Vestuary contest?) - well, heck. I still can't find that button!
So - here it goes.
Crappy photo but a cute skirt from Sew What Skirts. I love this book - it's very simple sewing but fun.
This one is called East meets West - I used a imported Japanese cotton for the main body and an all-american calico for the bottom portion.
Hedgerow Socks -
I forgot to take a photo but I got a complement on them at the Minnesota Knitters' Guild meeting!
Stripping indigo leaves takes much, much longer than you would think. Tomorrow, I'm doing the actual dyeing using the instructions from here.
Finished but waiting for a button. Grumble, grumble, grumble . . .
Three pairs of shorts, a pair of pajamas, man's denim shirt, a rug and a pair of hockey skates. And they are already out of there but its very hard to make rooms for skates in my laundry room. Grumble.
