Last week I posted that I was working on a free Ravelry pattern, Debut.
I have finished!
I enjoyed making this very much.
A great pattern for a new knitter, not complicated but more advanced than straight garter stitch.
I liked working with the Red Heart With Love Stripes yarn.
I used approximately 1.5 skeins.
Also this week, out of sheer desperation, I made window coverings for the play room windows.
My son E “discovered” the ties on the half curtains that were in the room.
After them being ripped down for the 5th time I gave up and took them down.
Now, he knows he shouldn’t be doing it…he lost tv and kindle privileges for MANY, MANY, MANY hours over the long weekend (I think I suffered more than he did), but apparently the temptation was too strong.
I went into my stash and took the only two yards of fabric I had and made simple window coverings.
No lining, why bother for a play room.
We are going to be having our windows replaced and work done in our house.
When that is done, I plan on making curtains and/or valences for all the rooms.
We basically just threw up valences when we moved in, thinking the kids would pull down floor length curtains.
Actually, we didn’t do much decorating (except for wallpaper removal and painting), having a new born and a 15 month old at the time.
We are slowly starting to think about changes we (or I really) want to make.
Last year was the fence, water heater, well pump and tank replacement.
This year new windows, counter tops and backsplash.
Then, painting the living room, kitchen and bathrooms.
Have a good day!
