I purchased these books today to make some baby items for some friends, but particuarly a co-worker who is having a baby in early April. This means I have get into the process of which project to knit, and have done in time for her shower. I have been thinking of just doing a blanket and wait until she has the baby so I will know if it is a boy or girl. There are some items I find adorable and of course they are for a little girl. I am little weary as I heard some people who had trouble with Debbie Bliss’ instructions, so wish me well.
I received some American Express checks and my purchase will be FABRIC. I do not have any knit fabric, so that will be a present for myself to get knit and possibly coating fabric for that coat pattern. It will be my first coat just everything else I sew, the first of everything. However, I think I am going to stick to dresses and skirts for the time being until I work my way up to the coat. I am slowly, but surely building my stash and have to remember to get by tailor ham for ironing the seams.
Well, I finally am having a taste of winter. Yesterday was really a windy day, so it felt like 12 degrees outside than 32 degrees. Today was a better day as the wind finally ceased, and one can walk down the street without holding on to his or her hat. Now, I have to get to my Christmas menu together today and glad that Prime Rib Roast is on sale for $4.99 a lb, I probably will get 3 or 4 pounds as it is enough to feed 6 to 8 people. There is also the matter of my New Year’s resolution, what will I resolve to do next year. I have not a glue, but going to think about it. Good day.
