Yarn on the Go

Diana took her sock in progress to a couple of job interviews.

Jocelyn took her knitting to the doctor and the dentist.

We both took our knitting to celebratory lunch at Rudy’s Eat and Drink.

Sew Little Time

Mitchell Fabrics is closing. Jocelyn went fabric shopping. Much fabric was purchased, washed, and folded. A vintage Singer sewing maching also came home.

Fiber Flubs

Diana dropped a stitch while working on the Bellrose Shawl during American Gods. She also mis-planned her section striping for the Textured Triangle Shawl, and had to tink back a few rows. She had all sorts of fun problems trying to start herWedding Shawl with a cord that was too short.

Jocelyn had problems with section 2 of the Textured Triangle Shawl. She broke a needle while trying to start a pair of socks.
