Crafters, do you stretch before knitting or crocheting? I started to and you know what? I’ve found for my hands and wrists, it makes a big difference. I found on Pinterest some time ago a post by Knit Freedom. The hardest one for me is trying to be patient while doing the forearm stretch. I usually sit here with my timer on and read one of your blog posts.
I’ve mentioned before how our tween took a Project Runway class through Park & Rec and loved it. Her Bella and Big Pop bought her a sewing machine for her 11th birthday. It wasn’t until a month later we finally took it out of its box.
Princess Cupcake started a second skirt after loving the first one she had made in class. However, my firstborn got frustrated with the little mistakes she was making and refused to finish this project after sewing the pieces together. So guess who picked it up? I had to do some figuring out and buy a few things because my child didn’t give me much length to work with.
Here’s the skirt’s journey:
While she didn’t see this garment through, my daughter’s very happy with the end results. She had brought it to her Bella’s last
Thursday who thought I did a pretty good job.
Christmas gifts are obviously a priority right now but I’m rubbing my hands in anticipation when I can start trying out beginner projects I’ve pinned. Gail of Today’s Agenda, a most talented seamstress, also referred me to this blog of wonderful tutorials. I’m excited!
