Out of all the things I made last year, I’ve decided my FAVORITE is the sweater I knitted, then embroidered for Lyla’s Christmas present. Here it is:
What, you may ask, is on my agenda for crafting this year? I think there are several quilts in my future. More sewing of all types, I want to expand my knowledge and ability in the area of sewing clothing. Nothing fancy-shmancy, just more than pajama pants. I definitely want to learn to sew pencil skirts for myself. I love them and find them flattering. All the knitting I've done this year was with heavy acrylic yarn because that's what I had on hand, but this year I want to try making clothing with lighter weight yarn, possibly even cotton. This is Florida, after all. The heavy knitted items won't get much use unless we vacation in cold places. Which isn't out of the question, but still. I need to be practical, learn to make things we can use often.
