Notions and Knitting

After decades of sewing, I finally have my first narrow hemming foot. (3mm) I think I just used to avoid the whole issue of narrow hems, my clothes were much to practical. But I have a few light weight fabrics in the stash and I had left a blouse abandoned for several months. My attempts at a hand sewing edge were terrible, so I am in practice mode. I also picked up the ruffled organza elastic trim, it was a lot cheaper than the two hanks that I bought in France. The big buckle, I am always collecting purse findings, I have visions of making my own leather purse one of these days. I have saved my green leather coat and a black leather coat of my father’s in hopes that I’ll make a couple of fabulous purses.

The noro striped scarf is nearly done I am nearing the 6 foot mark. The socks are coming along as well and really don’t have too much to knit to complete the first one.

    It’s amazing how we can work around the lack of some tool for years and once we have it can’t imagine being without it.
    I love the scarf…so moody looking, somehow, with the muted colors.

    Oooh, that’s a pretty Noro scarf — I’m working on my second one now. Such fun to watch the colour story unfold.
