sewing action shot, and the little country studio.

Shannon here. I wanted to share a project that I just started, one that I have been dreaming about for a long time, but have lacked the confidence to undertake, due to its duration. Knitted leggings, on size 0 dpns. Yeah bud!
I am starting with the ringwood pattern stitch from Nancy Bush’s Knitting Vintage Socks, That done up in some merino sock yarn (dyer’s name forgotten by now), and then I switched to Poems sock yarn, one of those yarns that emulates the Noro color effect. You can see the massive increases there, in order to get a harem pant-style leg. These leggings are going to be made up of sock yarn remnants, so get ready for some chaotic color blocking!

Over winter break, Alice and I completely finished one quilt (as yet unblogged), got almost done with this quilt, and started a third, smaller quilt for a friend of mine. It was regular quilting bee, and there will be posts to come about it, I promise.

Also, exciting news is as of last night, no one had moved into the other half of the quad at Alice’s dormitory. Is there a squatted sewing studio in the futurre? Here’s hoping!
