In Which the Pirate Finds Something Old.
Northern Virginia is starting to open up again, and I guess that means I might have to leave the house… so out came the sewing machine, and I made a couple of masks for Michael and me. The fabric is leftovers from the curtains we made when we first bought the house! I used this tutorial and found it pretty easy to follow. First I made Michael’s mask, then adjusted the pattern to better fit my face, and made one for myself.
The mask would fit even better with a nose wire, so I went in search of pipe cleaners in my big box of art supplies. I didn’t find any, but I did find this vintage knitting nancy in a bag of mixed threads, along with a small booklet on how to knit. It suggests holding the right needle as one would hold a pencil, which seems very awkward to me – I wonder how many people failed to learn from these instructions!
And… grandma has received her long-distance surprise hug! It fits her perfectly (I mean, it’s a blanket/wrap, of course it does, but still–)
