I finished the bedroom curtains. Each window is a different height so each pair had to be a different length. It took me a couple of tries to make sure the pairs matched each other… well, were close enough not to bother me.
I was curious why we use curtains to connote an end of something, and grammarist.com says, “The idiom it’s curtains for you is taken from the fact that the final stage direction in many plays is simply the word ‘curtain’ meaning it is time to draw the curtain and end the play.”
One more pair of curtains for the living room, and then it’s curtains for sewing curtains!
I’ve made a good start on the second TransPride sock. Background art by Sydney, one of our delightful children. I think I’m going to frame them and hang them over our TV (the art, not the socks, which will go on another kid’s feet).
I’ve finished knitting the main part of my Shetland Tweed Throw, but I need to knit the i-cord edge. I had to order new double pointed needles for it. I’m also making progress on Franca.
I’m taking a video class on writing knitting patterns. I’ve also checked out a few books at the library by the teacher. If I feel like this was worth my time and money, I will link it later.
