someone i love very much is really sick – and i don’t want to share more than that for now – but that has translated into me knitting a lot and a lot these last few weeks and so, i have a whole bunch of projects to share..
i just picked up a ton of stitches to start the skirt section for the tilted duster, from the latest IK, and though i picked up the amount specified, i have a theoretical question:
…requires some work even before the wedding, particularly if it’s your sister that’s getting hitched. so, we’ve been doing some letterpressing and yay, it’s going great. this is claudin’s first time setting type and my third time on a vandercook (which is the type of press we used, different from the typical clamshell/platen types of press), so it’s been a bit blind-leading-the-blind, but we’ve managed pretty well, i think. plus, great music and happy chatter keep things moving.
