November Challenge Update

rodezzy | Posted in General Discussion on

I’ve made the tops for two soon to be quilted table runners and almost completed one Christmas Stocking.  Have to embellish.  I’ve crocheted two new scarves.  These items will be presents.  I doubt that I’ll get much else done between now and Friday and after Friday I won’t be able to communicate with you wonderful people until the Monday after Thanksgiving.  So here’s a wish that you all have a wonderful week and I will look forward to talking with when I get back.

    May you and yours have a wonderful blessed holiday as well. Thanks for the thoughts. solo

      Thank you. 

      Crocheted two more scarves last night.  I have lots of friends and the crochet scarves will be thick and warm with all of the yarns I'm using.  I'm just having problems deciding what to put together for the men.  They won't want all of the splash and sparkle. 

      So on my "Day After Thanksgiving" trip I will look for calmer yarn thats classy, I've used Vana's Choice and it is softer than the regular worsted weights like Red Heart.  I knitted a scarf earlier this month, and part of the end of Oct. for my son, and I liked the fabric it made.  It's also not expensive. 

      Two balls were enough for a good length knitted scarf, and I would probably need three for crochet since it takes up more thread.  I will use textured stitches to create the interest instead of flashy yarns.  Knitting takes too long.  I have lots to do and not much more time to do it in.

        Is that as in Vana White? I remember hearing that she crocheted and knitted and was in cahoots with this industry, which by the way, I think is wonderful.

        1. rodezzy | | #5

          Yes, thats Vana White, and she has been affiliated with the yarn companies for years.  I'm not sure if she just lends her name or orchestrates this fashion show with crocheted and knitted pieces, but I've seen it on some of the craft shows that I've taped over the years.  It's a big part of her lifestyle.  It's a fabulous show, I loved seeing the pieces that were being modeled.

          Well, today is my last communication with you guys until I get back on the 26th of Nov.  Last night I finished my grand daughters fleece backed quilt.  I serged the edges instead of putting on binding.  It came out great.  I took pictures, but forgot to bring the disk.  So you can see it when I come back.  I will also take pics of my scarves.  They do have some finishing yet to be done, I want to create unusual fringes/final touches on them to make them even more one-of-kind fabulous neckwarmers.  Not too outlandish, I want them to be worn. (giggle).  I will also be working on the Christmas stockings I hope.  I've purchased some trims for them. 

          I'm going yarn store hopping in the morning with the crafters from the new group and friends, and of course I'll be frying up some turkey for Thanksgiving. (smile)  Hope that comes out O.K.

            Hope you have a wonderful week off!  Productive & satisfying!  Also hope you enjoy your turkey!  We'll all be waiting eagerly for your pics.

            For future challenges, you might be interested in a book I ordered & received today - Sweatshirts - Figure-fit-Fashion  - 15+ Stylish Designs to Sew and Wear by Debra Quartermain (full size patterns are included) - cost me $30.99 Cdn.  Anyway, it has all kinds of jackets/coats to make out of sweatshirts & fabric/trims/yarn/etc. - just up your alley - the type of clothing you like to make & wear - I thought of you immediately as I am looking through it.  See if you can find it & let me know what you think.

            I'm glad I caught your post just now, I am almost out of the door.  I was wondering where you had been.  Good to hear you. 

            Guess what?  I have a couple of books on the subject, and I've made a couple of items.  Not much.  I should get on it again, but then that's another project in the wings he!?

            I didn't pay no where near the for mine, if fact my girlfriend gave me one she found in a estate sale for $1.00 and the other I bought from a quilt guild member for $2.00 a long time ago.  At least five years ago.

            Oh, well.....I'm off to my vacation from work.  Unfortunately I can't keep in touch with you guys.  Talk with you when I return on November 26.

            love and hugs to you and everyone.
