I’m starting to get my knitting mojo back after losing it during summer. I have a few projects to finish before I’m allowed near anything new - mainly baby jackets for DS’s baby. I’ve been dyeing yarn here and there but I’m almost overwhelmed by my stash!
Anyone else with projects on the go?
I want to get back into sewing. My SIL took me to the Sewing Basket last week - it’s like an op shop for sewing - it was amazing. They had everything and it was all beautifully organised. Loved it. They raise money for Achieve Australia.
^ That shop looks great.
I wish I’d known about that place when I was in Sydney recently.
It’s like an Aladdins cave for sewists. It even has half sewn garments and tapestries that someone’s started and never finished. And so much fabric! Beautiful wools. We went to two of them, they were both amazing.
No. I don’t believe in knitting.
Three days have gone by and I’ve not done anything 😂
I need to use the fancy letter stitch on my sewing machine to label a new school jacket but my machine is intimidating after not using it for so long.
You are triggering me NightHawk! I cannot sew. I use a sharpie to label school clothes. Now I feel not good enough.
I used to do that, but we kept losing jackets. Bright pink, hard to remove stitching means we still have the same two jackets two years later. It’s still a miracle, hope I haven’t jinxed myself!
My Mum makes a tidy little income from a side-hustle of taking in mending from people like me who are hopeless at sewing machines.
Apparently there’s a furore going on about Ravelry? 😆 what is it this time?!
I should tell my mum @[deleted] - I make her do it for me for free!
CassandraNORI I should tell my mum @Tapioca - I make her do it for me for free!
😆 I make my Mum charge more. She charges people $5 or $10 to do quite complicated work like taking in seams and darts. She doesn’t appreciate the skill and craftsmanship involved.
Just had a squizz at Ravelry.
I think it is about the new website design.
So when did Casey become Cassidy?
WidowWyncke six seizures!
WTH have they done to it?! I still haven’t looked 👀
Ravelry is woke city. They all need to knit a giant ladder and get over themselves.
I just had a look. TBH I can’t remember what it was like before. Or see what could be wrong with it?
Happy Easter. How cute are these crochet beads.
