Needlework Tuesday - I love knitting cables
Did I ever mention how much I enjoy knitting cables. Perhaps once or twice or more times. Sometimes I am happy knitting a simple, repeated pattern doing the same cable again and again. Great for a scarf where you don't want to pay too much attention.
Bonnie B Buttons. I'm using old jeans for the back of the circles and worn out shirts for the fronts. Of course I am careful with my cutting to avoid the thread bare areas of the garments. Even when a shirt is worn out, much of the body is still in good shape. I don't want to make this too big, as denim is very heavy. The pattern says there is no hand sewing, so there is a change of finishing it soonish if I have enough bits for the front. Of course, there is yet an entire laundry basket of old jeans waiting to be cut as well as a stack of black denim circles. Since the edges are intended to fray, I have been marking the cutting lines with a sharpie marker. Gotta love all the ways to use sharpies in projects.
It will be nice to mark this project off as completed one of these days. Since I have now told you all about it, I will actually have to work on it and I don't want to be making excuses to all of you. Please, be my conscience here.
Nobody has to admit it, but some of you might have a rather old UFO that you would like to deal with. Go ahead, pull it out and assess whether you are ever going to work on it. Then leave me a comment saying simply "I'm going to finish it" or "I'm going to give it away". You don't have to state how long it's been sitting around, though I won't judge you. I just want to share the good feeling of moving along on a lingering project.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
