09:48 - I remember faffing a bit more before settling down to watch Shetland from the night before. Shit got real this week. Poor Tosh.
11:29 - I squeezed out the yarn, hung it over the shower and... it was still crinkly. Huh. After letting it drip dry for hours, I wound it into balls about 10pm and stuck them on the radiator. It looks more use-able now, but I guess I won't find that out until I find a use for it! I also hand washed a knitted cardigan and sewed in a few ends from the blanket I finished the night before (Friday was also productive) before getting distracted with another task.
13:28 - In the process of making another project bag - this one used fabric I bought from Char's Instagram sale and the drawstring casing was made with fabric I got at the last craft bloggers meet, although I'm not sure who was the original owner...
15:19 - Enough sewing for one day. I made three bags - one from a vintage tea towel for my friend at work, one from a charity-shopped floral pillowcase for the gift drawer and one from Char's fabric for me! I do love that boat one but I think my friend will appreciate it. I couldn't be bothered making more bias binding for the drawstrings after the first one, so I'm planning to either buy ribbon when I'm in town this week or make it another time.
So, having not went to Tam's for a now non-existent reason, I decided to continue my productivity and cast on my next knitting project, a baby cardigan.
20:16 - Back to the knitting, using 4ply and smaller needles than usual. I'm not one of those people who hates knitting on a small scale but the fine yarn takes a bit of getting used to. This one looks lilac in some lights, grey in others, but it has a colourful yoke design so that should save it from looking too bland.
23:36 - The missed hours included more knitting then winding the aforementioned blue yarn, so bed was a bit later than usual. I'm liking this book so far, although I find it hard to believe that an entire population shares what seem like very generalised views. There's lots of fun facts and silly anecdotes though.
Productive things I also did but didn't photograph
- gave my bookshelf a mini clearout
- found a couple of things to stick on eBay
- used up three nearly finished spools of thread
- did a washing
- didn't take my pj's and dressing gown off all day
Productive things I did the next day
- bought a replacement bulb for my sewing machine
- stumbled upon a cute outfit combination
- took my knitting on the train
- hugged Tam
- figured out where to take my broken space heater for recycling (by calling my mum. Google was surprisingly unhelpful.)
- wrote this, and Wednesday's, blog posts
