Did I mention that I got a scanner? (This is not a photograph of it, nor one it scanned.) It gave me the capacity to post the Caleb photo in the last entry. I also added an image to the quilt section, of a pillow I made for my goddaughter. I actually made several similar pillows over two Christmases with fabrics from my mom's log cabin quilt; guess I should scan those as well.
I'd planned to try scanning the knitted fabric of Cutie Patootie for this blog entry, but we ran out of time this morning. I need a snooze button, but my alarm clock (above) is analog, and battery-powered -- the clock radio is in the bathroom so I can listen to NPR while prepping for the day -- I like this Michael Graves-designed timepiece better in the bedroom anyway. So I'll see about scanning the knitting tonight. Can anyone with a scanner tell me if that works? I feel like I've seen more than 2-D stuff depicted via scan (i.e., Bonne Marie's header earring); guess I'll just have to try it to find out.
Later: Look! I did it:
On the knitting front, I'm continuing on CP and Smooch simultaneously. I sure hope the curled bottom of the stst of Cutie will block out, although I also figure the crochet edge finishing will stop the rolling. I'm almost to the point of taking it off the long circ and dividing for back and fronts. I'm planning to do three-needle bind-off on the shoulders, another variation in addition to my having worked the back and fronts together to eliminate side seaming. The pattern calls for the sleeves to be attached and then the sides and sleeves seamed together, so I'll cross my fingers that the seamed sleeves set in with ease.
As to Smooch, I've worked past the increases that put it to matching the back, but I am considering adding a few more stitches and following the instructions for the large front. I"m hardly busty, but I might not mind a tiny bit more coverage and ease. Then I'll adjust before the shoulder bind-off so they'll match for the seaming I have to do there. The scary part -- that eyelet neckline -- approaches. Wish me luck!
