With my walking foot out of commission, I was able to spend some time over the weekend tackling other projects that I've been meaning to get to for months, but that just keep getting pushed down by my quilting endeavors. After weeks of promising him, and months of having the fabric on hand, I finally started making pajama pants for Mr. T.
|Monkey fabric from JoAnns|
I don't have a surger, so I used my pinking sheers to cut the fabric, and am thinking of zig zag stitching all around the edges to reduce fraying. Does anyone have other suggestions?
My other ongoing project is my Spectrum Socks, which I'm making with Shibui yarn.
I'm using a pattern from Knit Socks! 17 Patterns for Cozy Feet by Betsy McCarthy and the two-at-a-time method.
So far I'm loving these socks, especially the way the variegated yarn is resulting in this spiral striping. Hopefully I'll be able to finish them in time for the cool weather (which I hope is coming soon! I'm sick of this heat and humidity!)
Disclaimer: I apologize for the poor photo quality today. I took these in a hurry this morning before I left for work just so I would actually have something to post today.
