they look so innocent

Pretty, right? But this was pretty much the end of kcwc for me. That Anna Maria Horner flannel was supposed to be a tunic but I didn't have enough so I tried another pattern, but didn't have enough, so I made it into a top but in the end it was totally the wrong kind of pattern for the fabric. The yarn knit up half a pointy elf hat and ran out. I've tried to knit it into a loopy scarf 3 or 4 times now and keep losing track of my stitches. So there you go. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead! I love that fabric so much though. I need to make it into something else. Maybe a pretty little pillow for Phoebe's bed.

    I didn’t get very far on kcwc either. I guess it was a bad idea to try and have a big sewing week when I was planning a birthday party, expecting company, cooking for 30, etc. LOVE that fabric. It’s beautiful.

    It is truly a beautiful fabric. I can relate to you fabric struggle, but I am sure you will find the right project for it in the end. And then it will seem that it should always have been used for this.

    The fact that someone as awesome as you doesn’t get it exactly right every time gives me hope.
    I started Evelyn Inchworm last night. She seems a little twisted, but I’m very hopeful that the stuffing process will straighten her out.
