March is quickly speeding away. And beyond two functionally useless swatches, I don’t feel like I have accomplished much. March’s socks haven’t been started (I’m still waiting for the yarn to arrive), and my mom’s cardigan is waiting for it’s final fitting before I can progress further.
March’s ornament, for all my grousing, is coming along, but I feel a bit uninterested in it right now because of all the white I need to stitch. It is Santa Bellpull by Carol Elmer, from the 1997 edition of the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue, stitched with DMC on a 32 count white linen. (I really need to label my fabric. Can any of you more fabric savvy ladies tell me what it is from the picture?)
I did manage to finish one wee thing so far this month: Cotton Kisses Baby Cardigan from Plymouth Yarns in their yarn appropriately named Cotton Kisses. The colourway is the imaginatively named 9490 Pink, Purple, Aqua.
Because I am not sure who the ultimately recipient will be (no, it isn’t for any future offspring of mine; the little man is our first and last), I put button holes on both sides of the button band. I can then later securely sew on the buttons over the unnecessary button hole, thereby making sure I have the buttons and the holes properly lined up. Neat trick, eh?
So, how are your March goals coming along?
