Random Friday

Yesterday Caleb and I finished up our first year of homeschooling!  I can’t even begin to explain how much we both learned doing this.  While we’re relieved to be able to say that seventh grade is finished, I’m looking forward to starting eighth grade on September 2.  On the other hand, I’m also looking forward to some free time over the next few weeks, and so is Caleb!

I thought I’d answer some questions from the comments today.

The pattern I used for the bags I showed yesterday was the Sock Sack in Three Sizes.  It’s available through that link, on Craftsy.  It’s a downloadable pattern with really great directions and lots of photos.  Like Ravelry, once you buy a pattern at Craftsy, you can download the file again later, because it’s put into your library.  One note about the pattern I have is to cut the casing pieces the same length as the main bag fabric, along the top.  In the medium size, the cutting diagram was wrong for the casing piece, but the directions just under the diagram were correct.  The only changes I made were to add a wrist strap and I topstitched around the top edge just under the casing.
Earlier this week I showed you the start of my Meditative Stash Buster Blanket.  I forgot to mention, I’m using a 2.75mm hook to make the squares, and I hadn’t gotten it on the project page either.  Now it’s also on the project page!  (Which also means, if I set the project aside at some point and come back to it later, I’ll be able to figure out what size hook I used.)  Ever since Ravelry came along, I’ve kept much better notes on projects, although just having the blog was helpful too.  I have never been very good at keeping a project journal even though I try to.  Oh, and in case you were wondering, those are three new squares I did last night.  I was going to work on another project, but I just didn’t have the brain power last night.

Have a great weekend!

I like this idea for stashbusting so I downloaded the pattern. Can't wait to start.
