Ruffles n Stockings...

I finally set up and completed a project on my new Singer Futura XL-400 30 Stitch Sewing and Embroidery Machine. E$ needed a stocking for his very first Christmas. Reese-Reese dropped off the fabric and left me to it. To be honest I was and still am a bit anxious about the machine... and for the life of me I don't know why. I have had multiple sewing machines, sergers, and embroidery machines and they have never intimidated me in the least... This one... well...

Ok... the heel looks a bit funky...

I took off some of the heel... Better?

Ruffle skirt... Eventually

USM Wingspan Scarf... ish

I've been working on a version of the Wingspan for the USM

Patons Lace Yarn (Patina)




Double e-wrap cast on - 60 needles

COR - k 2 rows COR

Place all needles but last 3 needles on the right into FHP

K 2 rows COR

Put next 3 needles into FWP and k 2 rows

Continue putting next 3 needles into FWP until all needles are in work

When the last 3 needles are in FWP k 1 row ending with COL

Bind off the first 15 stitches on the left then k 1 row COR

Increase 15 stitches on the right of the knitting using a double e-wrap cast on. To do this I hung a weighted rag hem on the 15 needles to the right of the knitting. Knit 1 row of ravel cord. Then double e-wrapped the needles to begin the next triangle.

This I repeated until I had 12 triangles and all needles in work. Knit 2 extra rows and bind off.

I completed the edges using a single crochet stitch.

Amazing Siberian Slippers for Eden

After stalking these slippers for months (via Ravelry) I finally purchased the pattern this morning and got started on a pair for Eden.

Chicken Stitches

Just finished another pair of stretch socks for E$

This yarn reminds me of glofish or neon tetras
