The Figurative and Literal Strings of My Life

Little Miss Bitty

Leave a comment

Well, apparently I can be a bit of a Bitty at times – or very Jutlantic…or so I’m told…But I really do hate waste. In any form.

And having finished this project, well, maybe there is something to it. Just a little bit bitty at times. But I just hate to throw things out that is perfectly usable. Just can’t say it enough.

Combining this with the fact that I can’t just sit I need something in my hands to work on – and also I needed something for my neck. Too warm for wither scarf and not warm enough to go without. And also accessories…love…

I had a huge bag og old, vintage wool yarns for sock mending – some inherited from my grandmother and great grandmother. I do knit socks but it is years between I mend any of them. So – I’ve had it for years, and admittingly it isn’t just fabric I have a lot of…it is alo yarn.

Nothing much to it – just back and forth on a circular needle size 2 – yes I took the easy way out and didn’t want to spend time on anything much more intricate than regular knit (not even purling). I did a little bit of pattern to make a scalloped edge – but that was about it.

All it took was time – due to the number of stitches and size of needles and I even did go up two sizes from where I started. I didn’t have the size one needles in circular so it just became too annoying to handle.

But sadly (or not – as well, I still need something in my hands – and most knitting projects are easier to bring with me than sewing projects) there is still sock yarn left – also I found a bunde of embroidery yarn…silks, wools, cotton…so next bitty knitty project is mittens to go with the scarf I think.

Hi I'm Jane. I live in a small apartment which is suffering under my many crafts and hobbies. I't sometimes seems as I live with them rather than the other way around. I grew up with all sorts of sewing crafts and I just haven't been able to choose just one or two. What I choose to do on any given day is pretty much up to mood and plans. So even though my figure and the clothes I love to wear fits together they are seldom in fashion and as I'm not very tall (making most dresses and skirts too long) - well, sewing my own clothes and then spicing it up with a bit of modern fashion seems to be the way to go for me. Even with the ongoing Mad Men fever there seem to be a lack of proper clothes for me to wear. Other than that I'm studying the European Union and English with a focus on communications and cooperation with the worlds developing countries; a lot of them being former European colonies. Dreary-sounding to most people but I love the mix of politics, culture, economics and social development. To take the egde of my studies I practice yoga - as much as possible - if I can get away with it I spend a least an hour (or...) on my practice. But it is much more than it is really good for me - I also really need as I'm training to run a marathon or two. And now - new hobby - learn how to manage a blog...which is not as easy a I thought - mainly al the technical stuff of arranging the site...hmm...hopefully it'll come to me...soon...
