A hearty welcome to all you stitchers! Thanks for dropping by to see what the Slow Sunday Stitching crew is creating this week!
I finished knitting a gift for the US Thanksgiving coming up this week. Can you see the pattern? I think I made a mistake on the nose (beak? snood?) stitching area? Oh well, I tried my best and it will be conversation worthy if nothing else! If you want to knit up a turkey for the holidays, click here for the free Ravelry Gobble Cloth pattern.
I wanted to start a new dishcloth with this new-to-me yarn. I had to deal with a "hank" for the first time... very annoying. I followed the instructions here, and used a chair to wind the yarn into a useable ball. Just wondering.... why doesn't yarn come in a useable ball format?!?
Anyway, I ended up having this big knot to deal with. I reminded myself that "patience is a virtue" as I wasted my precious stitching time trying to untie this knot. I'm finally ready to start the knitting for this Christmas gift which will hopefully turn out better than the turkey!
But first, for today's relaxation I am hand stitching a binding to finish up a placemat. These are my favourite binding needles. Will I have enough thread on this spool to finish the binding?
What are you hand stitching today? Will you give yourself some time to rest on Slow Sunday Stitching? Please link up your blogpost below and share your relaxing hand stitching projects with us.
