This was an easy and quick project, with just enough thinking to keep me engaged.
I'm amused that they came out slightly different sizes. And next time, I will cut out all the pieces before sewing them together! I've decided that I like a smaller flange and I want to practice more to make it more even...!
I bought this yarn years ago at the Wool Gathering in Ohio. The plan was to make a scarf, but it has been re-worked several times...
I've carried it with me several places; I even hand carried it in my luggage to Korea. I made some progress on it in November (undoing the bits I didn't like; will look for those pics) but set it aside in the naughty pile because I really didn't want to deal with the ends.
Well, it is Shelly's birthday on the 18th and I want to get this project crossed off my list. Need to get it done sooner, since it will take time to mail!
Measured at 36 ish inches yesterday when I took this:
And it was 43 ish when I finished my coffee this morning! Progress! My goal is to finish this scarf and mail it off. Bonus points if I get it to her by the 18th.
I made the other four into a scrappy pillow for me:
standing on a chair to take a pic...!
I edited one of the arrows from the beginning of the month. I had enough of the same/similar fabrics to make them into kinda-pairs:
and these two:
I had fun with this, especially with arranging the pieces. Sewing together the fiddly bits and getting poked by pins, not so much fun. It is just a bit smaller than the pillow form, so I need to add a border. Or make the pillow a bit smaller! Also, with all the seams, thinking I'll make ironing it my January OMG. :P
My guild is making these for the January BOM, so even though I am far away, I am going to make some too! These two are mine, and I need to make some in navy, teal, and purple and mail them in before the January meeting.
