Homemade weekend


Not being able to run about is tedious. Sure, I can walk, but I would rather be hopping here and there.

Since I have to rest the knee as much as possible, and I’m in a bad mood about it, I decided to be an indoors cat this weekend, and take it as easy as possible.

Good thing about being indoors is that you realise how much you miss the outdoors, I guess, but also, you catch up on projects. To be completely fair with all of you, I haven’t caught up on any of the projects I mentioned on this post, unfortunately. However, I have done a few other things.

I’ve finally fixed my brother’s rucksack. It’s not perfect, I’m afraid, and I didn’t manage to insert the top handle again without having a crisis with my sewing machine, but it’s usable again. I wouldn’t put too much weight in it though… just in case.

I’ve also done project #1 from Love at First Stitch, the book from Tilly, at Tilly and the Buttons.

The project is a headscarf. Simple enough, it’s just a rectangle, folded by half and sewn closed. It was all going great until I had to close the gap in the middle (needed to turn the band inside out) and then it all got a bit wonky. Still, I guess the lines are relatively straight. Unfortunately, I don’t think it would pass Patrick Grant’s scrutiny…

Finally, yesterday I baked biscuits. I’m not sure what type of biscuits they are, they’re a bit like shortbread, but it did say biscuit on the recipe from BBC Good Food. Because I was in a silly mood, I decided to cut them into bone shapes, like dog treats, which not only made them look cute, but I’m convinced they also taste better!

Since there’s still some weekend left, I thought I would get started on the knitting needle bag I talked about a few posts ago. I’m still unsure as to what I’m doing there, so it might be a big mess, but I guess first thing to do is research, and then draw a plan/pattern. I’ll keep you updated.

Regarding my knee… Well, it’s still attached to the rest of the leg, and that’s a good thing, I guess. It does hurt a bit still if I force it on stairs, so I guess I still have to take it easy.

This is going to get boring very quickly.
