Whoo, I hope you can get in some left footed sewing this week.
The Shell pattern blanket is beautiful.
LOL congrats on your first knitted block.
Actually ALL the blankets today is super cute.

My sewing table isn't ideally situation for left footed sewing, but I think I can move my machine a bit and make it work!

Thanks...the crochet has kept my craftiness (mostly!) appeased!

Knitting has been my Brick Wall, so it's nice to have made a little progress there!

You have got the knitting down. I mean knit and purl, that is it. That's all you need to know to knit up a storm. And my first I don't know how many blankets and dish cloths et cetera were all 100% knit stitch.

You can't go wrong with the sideways shell. It's a great easy pattern.

WE love testing your designs! They are easy to follow. I have tested one or two where I didn't know what was what because there were no color indicators or anything.

I need to borrow some needles from Elena so I can try knitting with another size and not forget what I learned!

When I design, I want my patterns to be as clear and precise as possible. A little work on my side means way less for everyone else!

Congratulations on reaching your Linus goal so early in the year!!! At least this enforced relaxation has helped you reach that goal so quickly. The crocheted blankets are all really beautiful.

Your knitted square looks good. You have the basics now and there is no stopping you!

I hope you can arrange your sewing station so you can get a bit of sewing done. I know that will go a long way toward cheering you up.

Yes, Amber is definitely a rock star. She could go on tour as Sneaky Sneakerson.

The crocheting has really kept me sane. I'm glad I had it to fall back on. :)

The knitting was like a lightbulb went on. I've been trying to learn for YEARS!

No sewing yet, but fingers crossed for later this week!

My friends really are the best. ♥

The yarn has kept me sane but I am ready to move on!!

I've had a silly amount of time to crochet while I've been sitting resting my foot. It's helped to keep me sane!

I swear I've tried to learn to knit a dozen or more times before this. Something just clicked this time and I got it!
