Thursday Threads 11/7

by Julie Hirt

First, let me apologize for all of the low quality pictures in this post.  They are all off my phone or Facebook uploads.  Second, this is a LONG post.

Last week I said I’d share pics of the costumes I made and finally, I have photographic evidence! dalmation

My friend, Christina, was a dalmation.  Simple dress to stitch up and we added the ears to a headband.  She’s fostered a lot of dogs this year, so it was a fitting costume for her.

ben franklin colonial thing

My brother wanted a Colonial man type outfit. At one point in the evening I think he referred to himself as Benjamin Franklin. ha!  I wish you could see the breeches, white socks and buckles on the shoes!  This was a lot more work and I didn’t have a pattern, so I was pretty happy with how it turned out.  I don’t really sew a lot of clothing.

 

Last night I got crazy and decided to rip an old queen sheet into strips and crochet them together.

crochet sheets

According to Instagram I should make a rug out of it.  I just may do that.

crochet with sheets

I’ll have to rip up some more sheets if I make a rug.  Believe it or not this is 2/3 of a queen sheet and it’s only about 16″ wide.

I’m using a size N hook and 3/4″ sheet strips.  I attached the strip ends together with a zig-zag stitch because I don’t like the bumps and knots other methods result in.

BASIC DC ROUND PATTERN:

  • Chain 5 and Slip Stitch
  • Rnd 1: 8 SC  in the center and slip stitch to join.
  • Rnd 2: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch, 2 DC in each stitch around. (16 total including chain) Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • Rnd 3: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch,  *DC in next stitch, 2 DC in the next stitch.  Repeat from * around.   Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • Rnd 4: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch,  *DC in next 2 stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch.  Repeat from * around.   Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • Rnd 5: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch,  *DC in next 3 stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch.  Repeat from * around.   Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • Rnd 6: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch,  *DC in next 4 stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch.  Repeat from * around.   Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • Rnd 7: Ch 3, 1 DC in same stitch,  *DC in next 5 stitches, 2 DC in the next stitch.  Repeat from * around.   Slip Stitch in top of CH 3 to join.
  • — follow the pattern until it’s as big as you want by increasing the number in red for each additional round.

 

KNITTING.  knitted socks

Do any of you knit? Do you knit socks? I just don’t have the patience for knitting and I wish I did.   My latest Etsy purchase – wool socks!  I wish I could make my own.
