I started with these two fun fabrics, and the intention of making a reversible apron for a Christmas gift.
I got the pattern pieces cut, and the pockets made:
I even got them both sewn onto the apron fronts
At some point, I realized that I forgot to buy a set of "D" rings for making the neck strap. I was going to keep going up to the point of making the neck strap, but then the lightbulb in my sewing lamp blew out and I didn't have a replacement for it.
I decided that fate was telling me to move on to something else, so I went downstairs, plopped myself down into my recliner with a cup of tea and finished knitting this:
It's a simple garter stitch with a few stripes, made with chunky yarn and size #15 needles. It worked up quickly, and I am so glad to have it ready for her to give to her dad. It kept my own lap nice and warm as I worked on it, so I know it will work for him.
I'd say that the Friday Night Sew In was a success. On today's shopping list is a pair of "D" rings, and a package of 60 watt bulbs!
