I've been making progress on the Ribby sleeve. It's now nearly as long as the first one was on Tuesday when I started back up on this project.
(The background fabric was made with leftover dye on Wednesday.) I'm nearly ready for blocking and seaming. I've never done any substantial seaming on a knitted garment before. You'd think that someone who's been sewing in one way or another for about 35 years wouldn't blink in the face of seaming, but you'd be wrong. I'm sure it will be OK once I get started. Seaming has also been the holdup on the pink baby bonnet.
Other than that, we've been having garden variety excitement such as this:
This is what happens when one of your helpers "washes" the dishes, using lots and lots of Dawn. Then you load the dishwasher, thinking you've rinsed off the dishwashing liquid enough, but you haven't! I wanted to post pictures of my husband using the wet vac to suck up the bubbles, but he felt it wasn't a very flattering pose.
Glacial progress continues on the paper piecing project so I'm not providing a photographic record. Have a great weekend!
