While trying to decide what apron to make from my (many) patterns for the Geat Apron Challenge Eggstravaganza, I discovered that I had not one, but TWO patterns of an Edwardian apron. I still have visions of making this and trotting around the homestead like a modern version of Emma (in gum boots) - but it's not on the near-future-list. I have purchased other patterns from Candle on the Hill - they are very nice to deal with and have a wide variety of styles and patterns.
Here is the link to this pattern - Edwardian Apron
If this looks like something you have wanted to make since Bo Didley was a baby, leave me a comment below. I will choose a winner tomorrow (Wednesday) and will put it in the mail this week.
Over the holiday weekend, in between driving, cooking and construction, I learned how to knit cables! (Yes, Melanie, you were right - again - it is incredibly easy) As I rummaged through my pattern box, I had come across patterns for two headbands I have longed to knit. Spurred on by having some down time and watching a how-to video on YouTube, I sprang into action. Needless to say (hey - if I move a few letters around, it's "Needles(s)" to say) I managed to knit both headbands by Sunday. I am a cabling-fool! Next on the handwork agenda is learning how to crochet. I have visions of Granny Squares dancing in my head.
