Doodle-head Stitches Episode 44

Some knitting issues


Show Notes
Knitting
  • Breathing Space sweater - issue #1, knit a 3-row repeat of the light brown instead of 2 rows, didn't notice it for several more rounds, and I had to rip back and re-knit to correct
  • Antarktis scarf - issue #2, dropped a couple of stitches in the mesh section when I was distracted and had to put my knitting down, and I have no idea how to fix it, and ripping back to the garter stitch section doesn't seem like an option at this point either, so I'm setting this one aside until I figure out what I'm going to do
Quilting
  • Carousel lap quilts - both are finished and gifted
  • Blocks from the Past - Virginia Reel appliqué half-blanket-stitched down

Cross Stitch & Embroidery
  • Pumpkin Patch pillow - one full leaf started and finished, started another leaf
