Oh, the pressure
I'm chatting with Mdd this morning before school and she asks me if I can sew her skirt tonight because she'd like to wear it tomorrow. I haven't even washed the fabric yet! Katherine, too, has been thinking about hers and even sent me a link to the "Anthro" skirt she's using as inspiration. Aison and I went to buy more toile last night because it turns out that she does still want me to make a duvet cover from the stuff we already have (stuff we've had for a long, long time already). Looks like I'll be humming with a different type of needle soon!
I finished the hand part of Mdd's first thrummed mitten last night (only the first?); still have to knit the thumb. These are going slow. I talked with Kt last night and she's already past the thumb on her second! She's "worn" the first, both inside-in and inside-out! She's also had several requests for thrummed mitts from her dorm-mates. Guess what she told them?
I could not resist the Mountain Colors. I cast on for my sister's Shapely Shawlette last night, too. I just had to see how it was going to look. I made more progress than intended and it's looking good!
I have a package to mail to Yvette in the Frog Pond this morning, banking to do, bills to pay -- and lunch with the grrs! Yvette and I are doing a little trade -- with surprises! She also wanted the new Interweave Knits, which was among my LYS purchases on Saturday. I think I'm going to bring the shawl to work on during lingering, after-lunch conversation! There may be enough progress for a pic tomorrow!
