My first three days of March Madness brought three projects I haven't seen in a while! I usually draw my slip in the morning so I can daydream about the project during work. ;) On March 1st, I tiptoed up to the bowl, eagerly wondering what stitching...or knitting?...project I would draw.
Well. I drew neither!
That's right, on the very first day of March Madness, I drew out my one-and-only crochet WIP!
Teresa picked out to teach me and a couple others how to crochet. Um...it didn't stick too well; I picked up the hook and stared at it for a while before hitting Google to find a graphic to help me out. Yes, I am that crochet-impaired that I couldn't even remember how to do a single crochet. I was doing slip stitches, but at least I wasn't so daft that I failed to realize how wildly different they looked from what I'd already done, thereby prompting the Googling. (Gee whiz, did anyone understand that last sentence?)
On with the madness!
On the second I drew "Snow Catchers," by Fanci That. I should have more to show, but I decided that I didn't like the Oatmeal I was using for the snowmen...it looked too "dirty" so I ripped what I'd done and substituted white.
Saturday brought a very old class project, which I'm pretty sure I have not touched since the class! The technique is a double herringbone hem. In class we had mitered one corner of the cloth and started the decorative hemstitching. I managed to finish withdrawing and reweaving all the rest of the threads (16 of them!) and mitering the remaining three corners. Then I put in a few hemstitches for good measure. I still need to sew the corners, but I was too lazy to get up and get matching sewing thread. ;)
What will this week bring??
