Re: Knitters--Hookers--Spinners--Dyers ♫ WIP ♫ 9/21/2010

to all the mamas dealing with custody and abuse issues.

I've been sick the last couple days so I haven't gotten much knitting done but I have a bunch of customs started so maybe I'll get some pictures taken this week.

And here is an action shot of the overalls I posted yesterday. Still need to buy ribbon for the ribbon cuffs.

Emily - love that jacket! It is cute!
Craziness, I didn't know we got snow last night but I was in bed super early because I was sick. Love the overalls! DH happened to be sitting beside me while I scrolled by and commented that those were really cute.

Im wondering because only 2 of my premade sets from HC have sold. I know what the popular colorways are and I get lots of requests to match for customs but each time its for different sizes and themes. Im just wondering if its best to go back to just straight customs.
I actually prefer in stock because I'm too impatient for customs but it depends what you have in stock, I agree that going with popular colors and themes for instock is a good idea.

here's a yardage converter

I don't even know what it calls for and what weight, I was thinking the SMSS romper or another that doesn't have a million buttons. Also I don't really know exactly what Spirit Organic Merino is, will it pill easily? If that won't work I'll wait and do it with something else.. I do sort of want to use some for a doll outfit lol
I'm pretty sure Spirit Organic Merino is Gaia

If I taught myself how to knit, could I teach myself how to sew?
