I finally started taking apart my friend’s backpack so I can use those pieces to make a new one. I didn’t realise there were so many parts.
I’m sneaking in fabric, on the inside, from his mum’s stash that he gave me after she passed away.
It will be done.
The pullover turned out to be bigger than I planned but still okay.
I like really loose tops but haven’t tried it on, so unsure just how loose.
Only one shoulder has been seamed.
Not sure how the sleeves will end up but will add to it if it is cap sleeved.
I’ve almost finished with the roof by knitting a wee chimney for it.
It’s just a matter of embroidery for windows, the main door and putting small eaves on a side, then stuffing the whole thing.
I’ve nicknamed the house The Knob House because of the chimney.
This is an experiment in what I will end up with. I assume it’ll be a small poncho but it’s not finished.
Frogged the smaller sides and decided to make the front and back first, so I know exactly how big to knit the smaller sides. Rather than doing the reverse.
The tissue box is just to hold the walls and floors for now and a visual reminder to how big the whole house will become.
The end product will be stuffed.
This is the slow progress of the cardigan I’m knitting.
I only spent an afternoon or two on it.
This is what bothers me about knitting. I’m impatient and my progress is extremely slow.
The end result is always worth it, though.
I was watching YouTube on Saturday and viewing random crochet videos and got an idea to make a triangular shawl made entirely out of triangles.
It’s not a new idea but want to see if I like the end result.
The color scheme isn’t finalized but I’ve decided on the second basic sketch. Either cream or off-white yarn will fill in the empty spaces, and to connect all the triangles.
This is the crochet top/pullover I started last week.
This is the back with a piece starting the front.
They’ll mirror each other and the sides will be seamed.
I haven’t decided if I want to add to it to make longer sleeves, because there will be short sleeves.
Also, haven’t decided if I wanted to add on an edging.
