Baby Sweater Craftsy Class

Blogged under Craft Classes,Craft Classes Online,crochet and knitting by Tammy on Wednesday 19 June 2013 at 9:02 am



One goal of mine during my summer break was to finish another Craftys.com class, and well, I’m close but I go back too soon to finish the baby sweater project in the Beyond the Rectangle class. I will finish in a few weeks probably, but for whatever reason, I have just been too distracted to really enjoy this class like I though I would. And this has nothing to do with the class. I’m learning a lot about garment construction and crochet in general. I think it is just that I don’t really care about this sweater. I may have someone in mind for it, but there is a good chance he is going to be too big for it by the time I’m done. Plus, even though I’m using cotton yarn, it is summer in Florida. We are already hitting 90 degrees most days. Who wants a sweater?

But, I’m so close to finishing that I have to just put my head down and keep going. I have all the parts finished: 2 sleeves, back, 2 fronts. Next I think we block these, stitch them together, add a trim, and also add buttons and button holes. See what I mean about learning a lot? When I finish this thing, I will have the skills to make me a sweater, so this class is well worth my time. I’m not a huge sweater person; again, um, Florida is not a sweater place, but I have my eye on a few light sweater designs. I have only attempted to make a sweater one time, many, many years ago, and it was a total flop. Once I finish this, I may try again, and at least now, I will have some of the basic skills needed.

    I’ve started a Craftsy class on paper arts, Tammy. It’s a very enjoyable way to learn. The only problem is finding the time to finish it. Without teachers and term papers to drive me to completion, the effort has to be mine alone.

    I applaud your determination. Perhaps there will be a baby further north in future summers who could be warmed and coddled by your lovely sweater 😉
