I am going to put together a few posts over the next few months to show how I use up every bit of something until it is 'All done' I don't like to have bits of useless craft stash left over filling cupboards all over the house. I like to use what it was bought/given for and then keep the momentum going until it has all gone.
This post is all about that lovely jersey I bought
that went all pear shaped...
Did you ever have a post office set as a child and was too afraid to use the stamps because then they would all be gone and then by the time you found the box set in the bottom of the wardrobe a few years later you were too old to enjoy it. Well, that scenario is accurately described because that happened to me and so I like to get the fun out of things. No saving for best, enjoy the moment, I learnt my lesson long ago...
So, you may remember I made an almighty mess of an adult tunic. I didn't shove it into the fabric stash drawer under the bed or bin it crossly (nearly!)I tried my hand at some leggings, then a tunic for Big sis and finally some more contrast leggings to use up every last scrap on the nap.
I'm feeling fine about my mess up now and have had lots of practise with jersey, still lots to learn though, but I think you have all heard enough of it now! I used a great binding tutorial for jersey here if anyone has been struggling. It is aptly called 'The grumpy persons guide to knit bindings'
I'm ALL DONE #1 with this fabric now. Jo xxx
