I know at some point all you wonderful bloggers are going to throw your hands up, scream “Enough Already!” and quit giving me fee advice. Here’s to hoping I haven’t hit that wall yet! 😉
So here it is:
I received an email asking me questions about TNNA – which I know nothing about. After looking at their website I don’t feel any smarter or helpful. Hopefully this is where you awesomely kind and knowledgeable bloggers come in. So here are her questions:
1. What is TNNA?
2. Do you need to be a member?
3. How do you become a member?
4. Is it like the Knitters Guild?
5. Do you have to own a business?
6. Is there anywhere I can find more information about it than just their website?
Any and all comments, suggestion or words of encouragement that I can pass on would be greatly appreciated!
Oh…I’ve been knitting too!
More on knitting when I get a day off – hopefully Sunday. Also, if you are doing October’s #yarnpadc you can keep up to date with my pics on Instagram, although my plan (oh how good I am at planning!) is to do a weeks worth of photos every weekend.
Well friends and neighbors it’s time I get back to work…:( Miss all your shenanigans and can’t wait to catch up with all if you!
So the progress on the Jayashri Sweater continues, very slowly. It’s been a really busy week; several custom orders have come into the shop (yea!), along with several (28 – yes, twenty-eight) ruffle scarf orders. If you don’t take into account having 1) a job 2) a husband and loving niece and 3) social life, well then I guess I would have my pullover finished by now.
Wanna see some progress? Because I really want to share!
I am still keeping a very vigilant count of all the stitches that go into this wonderful pullover, it appeases my OCD as well as my genuine curiosity about how the garment is coming together. I am getting to the decreases that are written in the pattern for the waist, decreases aren’t a problem and I can see (both on the picture of the sweater and in my head) about how this supposed to turn out. It is the short rows and increases for the bust ( of which mine is….ample) that I am a little worried about. I am watching the Short Rows Class on Craftsy to get a better understanding of how these stitches are worked and it has done wonders to bolster my confidence. Of course I am saying this before I’ve actually worked a single row. 🙂
It is a bit daunting to put your first attempt at anything on the internet – especially when you spend every minute of your spare time seeing other bloggers amazing, flawless work. Perhaps it will be a way to motivate me to spend the extra time to learn the construction of a garment – I mean, who wants to fall flat on their face in front of such amazing talent? Either way it goes I am just remembering to breath and enjoy the knitting.
So friends and neighbors it’s question time! What was your first handmade garment? Did it end with smiles or tears? Is there any advice you would wish to share?
As always, it is a pleasure to blog with such great company! ♥
