Hot Off the Needles
Ashley has the sewing bug. Seven years ago she started a mini-quilt and she finally finished and framed it!
Ashley loves foundation paper piecing. She completed the “Truth” square by HappySewLucky on Etsy.
What We Are Working On:
Tara also caught the sewing bug! Because Tara is a sewing newbie, she signed up for the Garment Construction Series at Domesticity, a new fabric store in Baltimore. Domesticity offers a variety of classes for novice to experienced sewers. The teachers and owner of the shop are phenomenal! If you are in the Baltimore area, you should check this place out!
Tara is making the Shirt Number 1 by Sonya Philip of 100 Acts of Sewing.
Tara has also completed several zippered pouches.
As far as knitting goes, Tara is testing the Caragh Sweater by Laura Nelkin. This sweater will be published on Ravelry in mid-September. Tara is using Arranmore Light in the Narin colorway by the Fibre Company.
Ashley is chugging along on the Brighton Plaid blanket.
Ashley started Knitting Pure and Simple’s Children’s Neck Down Cardigan for her son, William. She is using Spud and Chloe Sweater in the Manatee (dark blue) and Lake (bright aqua) colorways. She is knitting the largest size.
Ashley hopes to cast on the Campside Cardigan by Alicia Plummer. She will use a DK Madeline Tosh.
Sad Knitting Tragedies:
Tara had to frog a good portion of the Caragh Sweater because she distrusted her swatch and chose the wrong needle.
Tara purchased one skien from Destination Yarns in the Postcard Base, colorway: Toes in the Sand.
Ashley destashed 1/4 of her yarn! Wow! She then bought Nox Yarn Advent Calendar.
Old Bay on Everything:
Ashley and Tara visited the Baltimore Farmer’s Market together.
