I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

Up late

My husband is home from Tennessee for a month now and I am looking forward to non canine and adult company in the house, and his cooking. First thing he did was hit the fish market and he will be making Thai scallops tonight.

I should post some of his recipes.

I was excited that he would be coming home and sat up knitting until 2:00 a.m. on this vest. It is knit on circular needles with a three needle bind off at the shoulders. I hate sewing up and often leave things in little rolled up units in bags until I can face the finishing. Funny when I sew clothes so much.

Of course I was up so late because it came time to cast off in two place for the armholes and of course I got the count wrong 4 times and had to keep ripping it back and starting again. But I decided that I wasn't going to go to sleep until I was at least where I was when I started about 11:00.

Not sure yet I am at the place where I say I knit to relax.
