Completed projects, knitting and SCA

The Simple Stripes baby sweater is complete and I should have that in the mail tonight, along with some socks.

This is for my friend who just had baby #2. The sweater should fit her oldest and then it can be passed onto the younger brother. The socks are for the baby. It would be nice if I could whip up a stocking cap to go with, but I need to concentrate on my sewing this week and finish up my woodworking projects. I'm sad the self striping did not match on the baby socks, but I will try to get over it.

I finished my pattons last night. They actually are quite comfortable and I am excited to see how they hold up.

I glued up 2 layers of 1 x 4 poplar, cut the side profile on the band saw and then cut the top profile. I eased the edges slightly, sanded and smoothed. I added some cut nails to the sole to hold the two layers together and, perhaps, prevent wear. We will see. I clomped through the house last night and really like how they felt.

Here is a shot of the completed Northshield Shade Fly #2 from Autumn Rose.

Here is a shot of one of my work tables. I'm making 2 in total and the other one still needs the legs sanded and sealed. The top still needs another coat or 2 of shelac.

Do you still have the pattern for the sweater? I just went to Knitpicks to look it up, and they don't have it online anymore!

I will have to see if I downloaded it, or simply printed it off. As I said in my post, I can't find the pattern anymore on their site either.

It may be worth while to contact the creator directly. I found her contact info off of knitty.
