Ugh! Sorry I haven’t been around– MMM has taken a little hiatus chez Ginger. Poor Man Friend came down with a nasty case of the flu, so Doug the Pug and I spent the last couple of days playing nursemaid. He’s feeling better today, so we’re trying to get things back to normal.
I didn’t want to disturb Man Friend with noise from the sewing machine, so I did a little knitting while he rested. Since MMM started, I’ve realized that I’m seriously lacking in the cardigan department, so I started the Honey cardigan. I had started this a while back, but realized too late that the yarn I was using wasn’t really the right choice for the project and frogged the whole thing. I’m re-knitting it in good ol’ Cascade 220, which is working out beautifully so far. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish this quickly and get a little use out of it before it’s too warm!
I also started watching Kenneth King’s Jean-ius course on Craftsy. Man Friend wanted to know what I was doing, and asked if I could copy his favorite jeans for him. He got really excited about picking out topstitching thread and rivets, and can’t believe it’s possible to sew jeans (haha, I guess we don’t actually know that, do we?). I’m really looking forward to making him something, especially something that he’s really excited about. We’ll see how it goes!
What are you guys working on these days? I hope everyone is well (and flu-free– yuck!)!
