That’s right, this week I finally move into my dorm. I’ve been packing frantically this week and have only daily items left to pack. Despite all the packing, I’ve still been knitting… and sewing! Here’s my most recent sewing project:
Pattern: Artist’s Organizer from Simple Sewing with a French Twist
Fabric: Green decor fabric and cotton quilting material, both from JoAnn’s
Started: August 18, 2007/ Finished: August 19, 2007
Thoughts: I love it and can’t wait to hang it from my loft bed! I will take some pics of the dorm once I’m settled and it’s decorated to my liking.
Two birthday presents are done!
Cast-on: August 11, 2007/ Finished: August 19, 2007, although I do still need to weave in some ends.
Pattern: Noro Hat by Saartje de Brujin
Yarn: Noro Kureyon
Needles: US 7 24″ circ and US 7 dpns
Mods: Mostly I just made the hats a little smaller. The purple one is smaller than the blue-green one as well, since it’s for a girl.
Cast-on: May 1, 2007/ Finished: August 15, 2007
Pattern: Daffodil Dishcloth (May Monthly Dishcloth Group Pattern)
Yarn: Yellow Sugar n Cream
Needles: US 7 Knitpicks Options
That’s all for now, but after moving in Wednesday, I’ll try to post pics of the dorm room and my knitting getting settled in its new home.
