Red Yarn

I've been away from my Blog for so long now. Part of my excuse was that we were busy relocating to another state. Aside from that, I've had a hard time feeling motivated to sew. I decided to learn knitting while I waited for my sewing passion to return. I took a three part class at one of the local yarn shops and now I'm on my way! As you can see, I'm very good at buying yarn (above) but not perfect yet at knitting with it. I've recently completed my first class assignment of a basket weave dishcloth.

Kay’s Place Mats

Kay's Place Mats
I just need to slipstitch this set of six place mats and then off they go in the mail! They are 18x14 with green “Katie Jump Rope” fabric by Denyse Schmidt on the front and black cotton on the back. Inside is a layer of peltex by pellon. I made these the exact same way I made Alice’s Place Mats if you would like to know additional details about construction.
