I’m currently working on the Warm and Cozy Socks for my brother’s Yule gift. (Ravelry notes here.) Both nervous and excited to try out turning a heel for the first time. Any pointers for me?
Lack of time and a lack of concentration has kept me from reading anything too lengthy. Instead, I’ve found myself flipping through my Bible lately, reading small snippets. Although I went through 9 years of CCD, I’ll admit I don’t know much of the Bible. Got any favorite chapters/passages to point me towards? My Grandmother gifted me one about five years ago. I’ve gotten the notion in my head to sew a pretty cover for it. It has some kraft paper covering it in the photo above because I’m trying to figure out how to structure it, since it’s a heavy book with a thin paperback cover. I’m not sure if I want to do one fabric with some embellishments (current contenders seen to the left in the photo–linen, chambray or wool-ish felt) or do something patchwork-y (a la Rachel’s journal covers.) I’ll go into more detail when I finish this project.
