[Static drone]

2
00:01:09,520 –> 00:01:12,159
Hello. This is Adrian. I use masculine

3
00:01:12,159 –> 00:01:15,439
pronouns, and today is July 1st,

4
00:01:15,439 –> 00:01:18,159

  1. I’m gonna start this video off

5
00:01:18,159 –> 00:01:20,560
with a little bit of

6
00:01:20,560 –> 00:01:24,560
going over the board

7
00:01:24,560 –> 00:01:27,520
because I’ve blatantly stolen this from

8
00:01:27,520 –> 00:01:28,080
Noelle

9
00:01:28,080 –> 00:01:31,040
of costumingdrama and how she organizes

10
00:01:31,040 –> 00:01:32,320
what needs to happen

11
00:01:32,320 –> 00:01:35,520
in her craft room, um,

12
00:01:35,520 –> 00:01:38,560
and I’ve realized that

13
00:01:38,560 –> 00:01:40,240
most of the video clips that are in

14
00:01:40,240 –> 00:01:42,479
these videos are completely without

15
00:01:42,479 –> 00:01:44,399
context.

16
00:01:44,399 –> 00:01:47,119
So some projects you’ll have seen for

17
00:01:47,119 –> 00:01:48,320
the first time

18
00:01:48,320 –> 00:01:51,920
in a tiny little five second video clip.

19
00:01:51,920 –> 00:01:54,399
So here’s the board. I have not done any

20
00:01:54,399 –> 00:01:56,000
adjustments to it

21
00:01:56,000 –> 00:01:59,040
from yesterday because I don’t adjust it

22
00:01:59,040 –> 00:02:04,159
often enough for that. So I have-

23
00:02:04,159 –> 00:02:07,280
I should probably explain the board. This

24
00:02:07,280 –> 00:02:11,360
immediate column is-

25
00:02:11,360 –> 00:02:13,360
there’s not really a word- just like

26
00:02:13,360 –> 00:02:15,440
stuff to pay attention to,

27
00:02:15,440 –> 00:02:19,760
I guess? Up here in red are

28
00:02:19,760 –> 00:02:23,680
kind of my deadline knitting projects.

29
00:02:23,680 –> 00:02:25,840
Rhinebeck isn’t happening in person this

30
00:02:25,840 –> 00:02:27,520
year, but I would still like to finish

31
00:02:27,520 –> 00:02:29,120
the sweater

32
00:02:29,120 –> 00:02:32,239
by October, so I’m just gonna

33
00:02:32,239 –> 00:02:34,560
leave it. And then I have a Star Wars

34
00:02:34,560 –> 00:02:36,319
Christmas sweater that I want to

35
00:02:36,319 –> 00:02:38,239
complete this year. It’s been on my to-do

36
00:02:38,239 –> 00:02:38,879
list for

37
00:02:38,879 –> 00:02:41,920
two years now. Here

38
00:02:41,920 –> 00:02:45,280
is my ongoing costume

39
00:02:45,280 –> 00:02:47,920
project. This is the Salazar Slytherin

40
00:02:47,920 –> 00:02:49,120
990 AD

41
00:02:49,120 –> 00:02:52,000
project. You can see I’ve crossed off two

42
00:02:52,000 –> 00:02:53,280
things. I’ve completed my

43
00:02:53,280 –> 00:02:55,599
tablet weaving samples and I’ve

44
00:02:55,599 –> 00:02:57,360
completed my main

45
00:02:57,360 –> 00:03:01,120
rigid heddle loom samples,

46
00:03:01,120 –> 00:03:08,319
but I’m going to add

47
00:03:08,319 –> 00:03:13,200
rigid heddle loom

48
00:03:13,200 –> 00:03:16,080
detail. Like I said at the end of last

49
00:03:16,080 –> 00:03:18,159
video, I do want to

50
00:03:18,159 –> 00:03:21,599
do another swatch with the lace weight

51
00:03:21,599 –> 00:03:24,959
BFL and the lace weight

52
00:03:24,959 –> 00:03:28,319
cotton and linen yarns and also

53
00:03:28,319 –> 00:03:30,480
tack on some tablet woven samples to see

54
00:03:30,480 –> 00:03:31,760
how they behave.

55
00:03:31,760 –> 00:03:34,560
So I just added in that little extra

56
00:03:34,560 –> 00:03:36,720
detail sampling.

57
00:03:36,720 –> 00:03:40,560
Um for this month, I want to get my dye

58
00:03:40,560 –> 00:03:42,720
sampling done,

59
00:03:42,720 –> 00:03:46,799
um which I will talk

60
00:03:46,799 –> 00:03:50,000
more about at some point I’m sure. Um,

61
00:03:50,000 –> 00:03:53,280
but if I am using the lace weight BFL

62
00:03:53,280 –> 00:03:56,799
like I am inclining towards,

63
00:03:56,799 –> 00:04:00,640
I need to dye it green.

64
00:04:00,640 –> 00:04:06,480
So I have to find the right green,

65
00:04:06,480 –> 00:04:09,560
which requires sampling.

66
00:04:09,560 –> 00:04:12,080

67
00:04:12,080 –> 00:04:14,480
These items, the shirt and the braes, are

68
00:04:14,480 –> 00:04:15,760
the other things that I want to

69
00:04:15,760 –> 00:04:16,400
accomplish

70
00:04:16,400 –> 00:04:19,600
this year. Um, we’ll see how that goes,

71
00:04:19,600 –> 00:04:22,079
especially with my shoulder still being

72
00:04:22,079 –> 00:04:23,520
not the best,

73
00:04:23,520 –> 00:04:27,280
um but we’ll see how far we get. Those

74
00:04:27,280 –> 00:04:28,560
were my

75
00:04:28,560 –> 00:04:31,600
goals for 2020. Um,

76
00:04:31,600 –> 00:04:34,479
this is just a note. I am in the process

77
00:04:34,479 –> 00:04:36,400
of plying

78
00:04:36,400 –> 00:04:40,240
a commercially spun single.

79
00:04:40,240 –> 00:04:42,639
It was stock left over from a mill

80
00:04:42,639 –> 00:04:43,360
closing

81
00:04:43,360 –> 00:04:46,800
that a friend of my sister’s

82
00:04:46,800 –> 00:04:49,600
had. She got me a cone so I could play

83
00:04:49,600 –> 00:04:50,320
with it,

84
00:04:50,320 –> 00:04:53,759
but the twist is needs to be balanced, so

85
00:04:53,759 –> 00:04:55,360
I’m plying that together

86
00:04:55,360 –> 00:04:57,199
and that’s just a reminder of which way

87
00:04:57,199 –> 00:04:59,360
the singles twist so I can ply the

88
00:04:59,360 –> 00:05:01,039
other direction.

89
00:05:01,039 –> 00:05:04,639
And then here’s my little dye

90
00:05:04,639 –> 00:05:07,520
record that I still have marigold, black

91
00:05:07,520 –> 00:05:08,240
beans, and

92
00:05:08,240 –> 00:05:11,759
lichen in my

93
00:05:11,759 –> 00:05:15,919
things that could be dyed right now.

94
00:05:15,919 –> 00:05:17,520
And then down at the bottom here is my

95
00:05:17,520 –> 00:05:19,280
jelly roll rug

96
00:05:19,280 –> 00:05:22,400
tracker. I have basted- I’ve

97
00:05:22,400 –> 00:05:25,039
also clearly rubbed up against this a

98
00:05:25,039 –> 00:05:26,080
couple of times-

99
00:05:26,080 –> 00:05:28,479
I’ve basted each of the colors together

100
00:05:28,479 –> 00:05:30,400
into the final shape of the rug

101
00:05:30,400 –> 00:05:32,000
and now it’s a matter of hand stitching

102
00:05:32,000 –> 00:05:33,840
the rug together.

103
00:05:33,840 –> 00:05:36,880
I just finished the red orange part.

104
00:05:36,880 –> 00:05:39,039
So as I finish them, I’m going to cross
105
00:05:39,039 –> 00:05:40,080
them off.

106
00:05:40,080 –> 00:05:42,639
In the middle, we have the To To section,

107
00:05:42,639 –> 00:05:43,840
which

108
00:05:43,840 –> 00:05:49,520
I’m going to rewrite because I’ve also

109
00:05:49,520 –> 00:05:55,440
rubbed up against that

110
00:05:55,440 –> 00:05:58,319
enough times. I have swatch cotton

111
00:05:58,319 –> 00:05:59,520
machine knit shirt.

112
00:05:59,520 –> 00:06:01,360
I have the swatch done. I have not

113
00:06:01,360 –> 00:06:02,960
measured the swatch

114
00:06:02,960 –> 00:06:06,319
or begun playing around with the pattern,

115
00:06:06,319 –> 00:06:07,039
so

116
00:06:07,039 –> 00:06:09,039
that’s going to stay there. The gradient

117
00:06:09,039 –> 00:06:10,240
houndstooth weave

118
00:06:10,240 –> 00:06:12,160
is complete, so I’m going to erase that

119
00:06:12,160 –> 00:06:19,440
off there.

120
00:06:19,440 –> 00:06:21,479
I have a quilt that I’ve been

121
00:06:21,479 –> 00:06:23,680
procrastinating on

122
00:06:23,680 –> 00:06:26,800
for ages. You’re not gonna see

123
00:06:26,800 –> 00:06:30,000
full quilt shots in these videos because

124
00:06:30,000 –> 00:06:31,440
it is a gift.

125
00:06:31,440 –> 00:06:33,759
I don’t know if the recipient watches

126
00:06:33,759 –> 00:06:35,919
these videos, but they are aware that I

127
00:06:35,919 –> 00:06:39,360
make videos. So I’m not going to risk it,

128
00:06:39,360 –> 00:06:42,800
um, but I had under there border one,

129
00:06:42,800 –> 00:06:44,400
border two, border three. I’ll tell you

130
00:06:44,400 –> 00:06:44,800
about-

131
00:06:44,800 –> 00:06:46,240
a little bit about the quilt process

132
00:06:46,240 –> 00:06:48,319
that I’m using for this.

133
00:06:48,319 –> 00:06:52,080
So I have nine

134
00:06:52,080 –> 00:06:54,639
half square triangle motifs that are

135
00:06:54,639 –> 00:06:55,520
four by four

136
00:06:55,520 –> 00:06:59,199
half square triangle squares. Um,

137
00:06:59,199 –> 00:07:01,360
I want this to be a fairly substantial

138
00:07:01,360 –> 00:07:02,560
quilt,

139
00:07:02,560 –> 00:07:04,560
so what I’ve done is for each of those

140
00:07:04,560 –> 00:07:05,759
squares, I’ve done

141
00:07:05,759 –> 00:07:10,720
three borders. Um, I did-

142
00:07:10,720 –> 00:07:12,479
it’s written down somewhere that’s not

143
00:07:12,479 –> 00:07:14,479
readily accessible

144
00:07:14,479 –> 00:07:16,080
at the moment.

145
00:07:16,080 –> 00:07:18,960

146
00:07:18,960 –> 00:07:21,039
But basically, I did something like a two

147
00:07:21,039 –> 00:07:22,720
and a half inch border,

148
00:07:22,720 –> 00:07:25,680
a three-quarter inch border, and a three

149
00:07:25,680 –> 00:07:27,599
and a half inch border,

150
00:07:27,599 –> 00:07:31,599
something like that. So now the squares

151
00:07:31,599 –> 00:07:34,960
are 27 inches by 27 inches

152
00:07:34,960 –> 00:07:38,319
wide. I’m going to make quilt sandwiches

153
00:07:38,319 –> 00:07:41,840
for each of the squares

154
00:07:41,840 –> 00:07:44,800
and then sash them together when the

155
00:07:44,800 –> 00:07:46,080
quilting is done.

156
00:07:46,080 –> 00:07:47,840
This way I don’t have to try to fit a

157
00:07:47,840 –> 00:07:49,120
giant quilt under

158
00:07:49,120 –> 00:07:51,599
either of my sewing machines because

159
00:07:51,599 –> 00:07:53,039
it’s a huge pain

160
00:07:53,039 –> 00:07:56,080
to do that unless you’re doing

161
00:07:56,080 –> 00:07:59,199
really really simple straight lines.

162
00:07:59,199 –> 00:08:02,400
So

163
00:08:02,400 –> 00:08:06,479
I finished my borders and

164
00:08:06,479 –> 00:08:11,199
I have

165
00:08:11,199 –> 00:08:12,960
around one and a half yards of the

166
00:08:12,960 –> 00:08:14,319
fabric left

167
00:08:14,319 –> 00:08:15,919
that I had anticipated using for the

168
00:08:15,919 –> 00:08:18,800
back. That’s not gonna cut it.

169
00:08:18,800 –> 00:08:21,840
Uh, I’ve ordered fabric

170
00:08:21,840 –> 00:08:24,639
to come in for that and because of the

171
00:08:24,639 –> 00:08:25,120
weird

172
00:08:25,120 –> 00:08:30,960
sizing that I’m using, um,

173
00:08:30,960 –> 00:08:32,719
it wasn’t worth it for me to cheat and

174
00:08:32,719 –> 00:08:34,959
use a bed sheet.

175
00:08:34,959 –> 00:08:39,120
To “cheat” and use a be- yeah, “cheat.”

176
00:08:39,120 –> 00:08:42,320
Um, which for especially like a twin size

177
00:08:42,320 –> 00:08:42,800
quilt

178
00:08:42,800 –> 00:08:45,120
just getting a full-size sheet or a

179
00:08:45,120 –> 00:08:46,160
queen size sheet

180
00:08:46,160 –> 00:08:49,279
and quilting on it- totally worth doing

181
00:08:49,279 –> 00:08:50,800
because it’s a lot cheaper than buying

182
00:08:50,800 –> 00:08:52,000
fabric.

183
00:08:52,000 –> 00:08:54,880
Um but because basically the backs of

184
00:08:54,880 –> 00:08:57,040
each of those 27 inch quilt squares

185
00:08:57,040 –> 00:09:00,240
is gonna be around 34 inches,

186
00:09:00,240 –> 00:09:02,320
I might as well just buy the yardage

187
00:09:02,320 –> 00:09:03,519
since it’s almost

188
00:09:03,519 –> 00:09:07,279
a yard square that I need for each

189
00:09:07,279 –> 00:09:14,480
square. So,

190
00:09:14,480 –> 00:09:20,839
I’m going to erase that

191
00:09:20,839 –> 00:09:23,320
quilt,

192
00:09:23,320 –> 00:09:29,279
sandwiches,

193
00:09:29,279 –> 00:09:32,480
quilt,

194
00:09:32,480 –> 00:09:38,680
cut sashing,

195
00:09:38,680 –> 00:09:42,240
assemble. Those are the steps that I need

196
00:09:42,240 –> 00:09:43,440
to do,

197
00:09:43,440 –> 00:09:46,320
but they’re on hold at the moment until

198
00:09:46,320 –> 00:09:52,160
I receive that backing fabric.

199
00:09:52,160 –> 00:10:02,800
I’m going to add here

200
00:10:02,800 –> 00:10:04,800
pirate pants. I have no idea if you can

201
00:10:04,800 –> 00:10:07,040
even see this handwriting. It’s atrocious

202
00:10:07,040 –> 00:10:10,240
and crooked. Um,

203
00:10:10,240 –> 00:10:11,920
I have a sewing project that I want to

204
00:10:11,920 –> 00:10:12,830
do on my

205
00:10:12,830 –> 00:10:14,000

206
00:10:14,000 –> 00:10:17,279
mini Singer sewing machine.

207
00:10:17,279 –> 00:10:19,440
I call them pirate pants because that’s

208
00:10:19,440 –> 00:10:22,079
what I drafted the pattern off of.

209
00:10:22,079 –> 00:10:24,320
I’ve talked a little bit about it on

210
00:10:24,320 –> 00:10:25,920
Instagram. I’m gonna

211
00:10:25,920 –> 00:10:27,680
play around to see if it’s worth

212
00:10:27,680 –> 00:10:29,760
releasing as a pdf.

213
00:10:29,760 –> 00:10:34,640
It’ll be free.

214
00:10:34,640 –> 00:10:37,120
Basically walking through how to draft

215
00:10:37,120 –> 00:10:38,000
the giant

216
00:10:38,000 –> 00:10:40,880
pant leg pattern piece because it’s

217
00:10:40,880 –> 00:10:42,720
basically a rectangle

218
00:10:42,720 –> 00:10:46,480
with a little swoop in it.

219
00:10:46,480 –> 00:10:47,519
And then you can just print the

220
00:10:47,519 –> 00:10:51,519
directions and the pocket piece.

221
00:10:51,519 –> 00:10:53,760
And it’s basically an absurdly

222
00:10:53,760 –> 00:10:55,200
wide-legged trouser

223
00:10:55,200 –> 00:11:00,320
with drawstrings or elastic in the

224
00:11:00,320 –> 00:11:04,320
waistline and around the cuffs

225
00:11:04,320 –> 00:11:07,040
so that you can tuck those big wide

226
00:11:07,040 –> 00:11:09,120
pants into knee-high boots and walk

227
00:11:09,120 –> 00:11:11,680
around like a pirate.

228
00:11:11,680 –> 00:11:15,760
I’m sure I’ll come up with a, you know,

229
00:11:15,760 –> 00:11:18,480
generic name for them at some point, but

230
00:11:18,480 –> 00:11:19,279
in my brain,

231
00:11:19,279 –> 00:11:21,440
they’re pirate pants. So what I need to

232
00:11:21,440 –> 00:11:26,839
do for those

233
00:11:26,839 –> 00:11:30,399
is

234
00:11:30,399 –> 00:11:34,079
draw a new pattern piece to make sure

235
00:11:34,079 –> 00:11:36,880
that my calculations are correct.

236
00:11:36,880 –> 00:11:38,480
I don’t want to just throw some numbers

237
00:11:38,480 –> 00:11:40,160
around

238
00:11:40,160 –> 00:11:49,680
without having drawn it myself.

239
00:11:49,680 –> 00:11:52,639
I’m gonna dye the fabric for it. Let

240
00:11:52,639 –> 00:11:54,800
me grab that real quick.

241
00:11:54,800 –> 00:11:56,639
If you haven’t seen a previous video-

242
00:11:56,639 –> 00:11:58,880
sorry, I just scared the dog by running

243
00:11:58,880 –> 00:12:00,639
into this table.

244
00:12:00,639 –> 00:12:05,040
I have these two pieces of linen

245
00:12:05,040 –> 00:12:08,720
that are just enough for some

246
00:12:08,720 –> 00:12:11,920
kind of knee/ mid-calf length

247
00:12:11,920 –> 00:12:14,320
pirate pants, which would be fine to wear

248
00:12:14,320 –> 00:12:16,959
around here during the summer,

249
00:12:16,959 –> 00:12:19,360
but I’d experimented with eco print

250
00:12:19,360 –> 00:12:20,880
dyeing on these.

251
00:12:20,880 –> 00:12:24,240
They’re not the prettiest.

252
00:12:24,240 –> 00:12:28,000
Gabby, my sister, has dropped off

253
00:12:28,000 –> 00:12:31,680
her bin of natural dye powders.

254
00:12:31,680 –> 00:12:36,560
So I’m going to use logwood

255
00:12:36,560 –> 00:12:40,000
and try to dye them purple,

256
00:12:40,000 –> 00:12:41,760
but I’ve never used natural dye powders

257
00:12:41,760 –> 00:12:43,519
before. I’ve only used

258
00:12:43,519 –> 00:12:47,360
plants for natural dyeing, so

259
00:12:47,360 –> 00:12:50,639
that’ll be an experiment.

260
00:12:50,639 –> 00:12:54,160
But it should be fun. So I need to dye

261
00:12:54,160 –> 00:12:57,360
fabric

262
00:12:57,360 –> 00:13:01,760
and then we’ll just say cut

263
00:13:01,760 –> 00:13:09,680
and sew. My handwriting is bad.

264
00:13:09,680 –> 00:13:11,040
I don’t know how long that’s going to

265
00:13:11,040 –> 00:13:12,800
take me

266
00:13:12,800 –> 00:13:14,399
because I’m using a tiny little hand-

267
00:13:14,399 –> 00:13:19,120
cranked sewing machine.

268
00:13:19,120 –> 00:13:20,639
And I don’t know how my shoulder’s gonna

269
00:13:20,639 –> 00:13:22,880
like that,

270
00:13:22,880 –> 00:13:25,920
but that’s what we’re doing

271
00:13:25,920 –> 00:13:28,720
because I want to play with that thing.

272
00:13:28,720 –> 00:13:30,240
And then I think the last thing I’m

273
00:13:30,240 –> 00:13:32,839
gonna put in here

274
00:13:32,839 –> 00:13:36,480
is

275
00:13:36,480 –> 00:13:38,160
I’m gonna move something from this

276
00:13:38,160 –> 00:13:40,480
column, which you can’t even see.

277
00:13:40,480 –> 00:13:43,920

[weird noise]

278
00:13:43,920 –> 00:13:46,880
This blue column is future and that’s

279
00:13:46,880 –> 00:13:48,800
completely stolen from Noelle.

280
00:13:48,800 –> 00:13:51,120
So I’m going to erase the black vest

281
00:13:51,120 –> 00:13:54,880
from here

282
00:13:54,880 –> 00:13:58,079
and I’ll clean this up off camera, but

283
00:13:58,079 –> 00:14:00,839
I’m going to add it down

284
00:14:00,839 –> 00:14:02,320
here.

285
00:14:02,320 –> 00:14:07,279
Black vest.

286
00:14:07,279 –> 00:14:10,320
I’m using the same pattern from the vest

287
00:14:10,320 –> 00:14:12,399
I made for Gabby’s wedding,

288
00:14:12,399 –> 00:14:15,760
but I have made- I-

289
00:14:15,760 –> 00:14:20,000
after wearing it for her wedding, I have

290
00:14:20,000 –> 00:14:21,680
adjustments that I need to make. The

291
00:14:21,680 –> 00:14:23,600
seams at the shoulders are in a weird

292
00:14:23,600 –> 00:14:24,000
place.

293
00:14:24,000 –> 00:14:26,320
So I’ve altered the seams on the pattern

294
00:14:26,320 –> 00:14:27,040
piece

295
00:14:27,040 –> 00:14:28,800
and I want to move one of the darts

296
00:14:28,800 –> 00:14:30,480
closer to the center.

297
00:14:30,480 –> 00:14:33,839
I also want to put patch watch pockets

298
00:14:33,839 –> 00:14:34,639
on this vest.

299
00:14:34,639 –> 00:14:36,320
I’ve been doing a lot of pinterest

300
00:14:36,320 –> 00:14:38,320
searching lately and,

301
00:14:38,320 –> 00:14:43,519
especially for more rural

302
00:14:43,519 –> 00:14:47,600
casual waistcoats,

303
00:14:47,600 –> 00:14:50,720
a lot of them have patch pockets for

304
00:14:50,720 –> 00:14:52,399
the watch pockets.

305
00:14:52,399 –> 00:14:54,399
I’m pretty good at patch pockets, if I do

306
00:14:54,399 –> 00:14:55,760
say so myself,

307
00:14:55,760 –> 00:14:57,600
and if I make it in the same linen, it’ll

308
00:14:57,600 –> 00:15:00,320
be- especially if it’s black linen-

309
00:15:00,320 –> 00:15:07,199
which is what I have here.

310
00:15:07,199 –> 00:15:08,480
I don’t know why I needed to show you

311
00:15:08,480 –> 00:15:11,360
black linen. It’s black.

312
00:15:11,360 –> 00:15:13,199
It looks the same as any other black

313
00:15:13,199 –> 00:15:15,279
fabric on camera.

314
00:15:15,279 –> 00:15:18,320

315
00:15:18,320 –> 00:15:21,120
I lost where I was going, but I want to

316
00:15:21,120 –> 00:15:23,199
do a mock-up. So we’re going to put

317
00:15:23,199 –> 00:15:29,120
mock-up underneath,

318
00:15:29,120 –> 00:15:32,639
vaguely looking like letters there.

319
00:15:32,639 –> 00:15:37,040

320
00:15:37,040 –> 00:15:40,399
So yeah, that’s the plan for

321
00:15:40,399 –> 00:15:42,880
July. Will I get through all of that?

322
00:15:42,880 –> 00:15:45,199
Probably not.

323
00:15:45,199 –> 00:15:47,199
Will I get through some of it? I hope so.

324
00:15:47,199 –> 00:15:49,279
And we’ll see how much I get through

325
00:15:49,279 –> 00:16:00,590
at the end of this video.

00:19:41,039 –> 00:19:44,080
We’ve made it. It’s July 31st,

345
00:19:44,080 –> 00:19:47,200
2020, which means it’s the end

346
00:19:47,200 –> 00:19:51,760
of this month’s video. So here’s a little

347
00:19:51,760 –> 00:19:55,039
wrap up, I guess.

348
00:19:55,039 –> 00:19:56,880
You can see, I got a bunch of stuff

349
00:19:56,880 –> 00:19:58,240
crossed off the board,

350
00:19:58,240 –> 00:20:02,080
which is great, and I also have

351
00:20:02,080 –> 00:20:03,840
a couple of little things on the table

352
00:20:03,840 –> 00:20:05,200
here to

353
00:20:05,200 –> 00:20:12,400
talk about. So,

354
00:20:12,400 –> 00:20:15,600
shall we do the board? Shall we do

355
00:20:15,600 –> 00:20:20,240
these? Let’s do the board. So, quilt

356
00:20:20,240 –> 00:20:21,679
sandwiches,

357
00:20:21,679 –> 00:20:25,039
done. I’ve started the quilting

358
00:20:25,039 –> 00:20:28,159
on that, as you can see here.

359
00:20:28,159 –> 00:20:31,200
The pirate pants, done.

360
00:20:31,200 –> 00:20:33,440
And I actually ended up making two pairs

361
00:20:33,440 –> 00:20:35,200
of pirate pants.

362
00:20:35,200 –> 00:20:37,919
One which I’m currently wearing, which is

363
00:20:37,919 –> 00:20:39,039
the short pants,

364
00:20:39,039 –> 00:20:40,960
and one which is a full-length pair of

365
00:20:40,960 –> 00:20:45,360
pants. If I’ve

366
00:20:45,360 –> 00:20:46,720
managed to stop talking so the

367
00:20:46,720 –> 00:20:49,120
motorcycle can go by.

368
00:20:49,120 –> 00:20:51,520
If I have managed to follow my own plan,

369
00:20:51,520 –> 00:20:53,200
the video for those pants will have

370
00:20:53,200 –> 00:20:54,000
already been

371
00:20:54,000 –> 00:20:57,039
published. So you’ll have seen them.

372
00:20:57,039 –> 00:20:59,440
Black vest mock-up, I have not managed to

373
00:20:59,440 –> 00:21:00,080
do that

374
00:21:00,080 –> 00:21:02,240
yet because I ended up making a second

375
00:21:02,240 –> 00:21:03,200
pair

376
00:21:03,200 –> 00:21:06,159
of those pirate pants. And it has been

377
00:21:06,159 –> 00:21:07,600
very hot

378
00:21:07,600 –> 00:21:10,799
this july.

379
00:21:10,799 –> 00:21:13,919
You can see, I’ve also

380
00:21:13,919 –> 00:21:16,799
done ridgid heddle loom sampling version

381
00:21:16,799 –> 00:21:18,400
two.

382
00:21:18,400 –> 00:21:22,130
And you can see from behind me here-

383
00:21:22,130 –> 00:21:23,440
[Loud truck noise]

384
00:21:23,440 –> 00:21:26,640
these trucks are so loud. You can see

385
00:21:26,640 –> 00:21:27,120
from

386
00:21:27,120 –> 00:21:30,400
this wall of white behind me, I have

387
00:21:30,400 –> 00:21:34,240
draft and cut out both the shirt and the

388
00:21:34,240 –> 00:21:35,039
braes for

389
00:21:35,039 –> 00:21:38,559
Salazar Slytherin 990 AD.

390
00:21:38,559 –> 00:21:44,720
I’m hoping that I’ve got these

391
00:21:44,720 –> 00:21:47,440
numbers right because I have very small

392
00:21:47,440 –> 00:21:51,280
bits of this

393
00:21:51,280 –> 00:21:54,799
hemp fabric left.

394
00:21:54,799 –> 00:21:57,120
I have a feeling that I’m going to need

395
00:21:57,120 –> 00:21:58,000
to put in like

396
00:21:58,000 –> 00:22:01,440
a panel on the side seams of the body

397
00:22:01,440 –> 00:22:04,559
to make it wide enough because I am

398
00:22:04,559 –> 00:22:08,640
terrible at taking my own measurements

399
00:22:08,640 –> 00:22:10,480
and other people taking my measurements

400
00:22:10,480 –> 00:22:12,080
have also not worked

401
00:22:12,080 –> 00:22:17,919
out in my favor.

402
00:22:17,919 –> 00:22:23,760
So I may be doing some

403
00:22:23,760 –> 00:22:28,480
weird patch things

404
00:22:28,480 –> 00:22:31,280
with this project. So before I get too

405
00:22:31,280 –> 00:22:31,760
far,

406
00:22:31,760 –> 00:22:34,080
let me talk about rigid heddle loom

407
00:22:34,080 –> 00:22:35,919
sampling number two.

408
00:22:35,919 –> 00:22:39,039
Here it is. You can see

409
00:22:39,039 –> 00:22:41,919
I did not carefully wash this. I ended

410
00:22:41,919 –> 00:22:43,440
up throwing it into the

411
00:22:43,440 –> 00:22:46,559
setting bath with this blue cotton

412
00:22:46,559 –> 00:22:47,280
yarn

413
00:22:47,280 –> 00:22:49,760
that I plied up on my spinning wheel.

414
00:22:49,760 –> 00:22:51,440
And I knew that this bled,

415
00:22:51,440 –> 00:22:53,280
but I also knew that this was a sample

416
00:22:53,280 –> 00:22:54,720
and so it didn’t really matter.

417
00:22:54,720 –> 00:22:57,360
I’m just surprised how blue it actually

418
00:22:57,360 –> 00:22:58,960
ended up.

419
00:22:58,960 –> 00:23:02,000
So I am very glad that I did this sample

420
00:23:02,000 –> 00:23:05,840
because I’m actually leaning towards

421
00:23:05,840 –> 00:23:09,039
this panel here which is a fingering

422
00:23:09,039 –> 00:23:10,320
weight BFL

423
00:23:10,320 –> 00:23:13,840
warp and a linen and cotton

424
00:23:13,840 –> 00:23:17,280
blend weft, which

425
00:23:17,280 –> 00:23:20,799
would mean I would get that

426
00:23:20,799 –> 00:23:24,880
stretchy happy warp that I like,

427
00:23:24,880 –> 00:23:28,159
but also that I don’t have to order a

428
00:23:28,159 –> 00:23:28,720
ton of

429
00:23:28,720 –> 00:23:32,799
more yarn because I have a full cone of

430
00:23:32,799 –> 00:23:33,600
this

431
00:23:33,600 –> 00:23:36,880
cotton linen

432
00:23:36,880 –> 00:23:39,679
blend. I feel like it’s drapey enough for

433
00:23:39,679 –> 00:23:40,080
the

434
00:23:40,080 –> 00:23:43,120
feel of the fabric that I want, but

435
00:23:43,120 –> 00:23:48,559
also because it will have a

436
00:23:48,559 –> 00:23:51,919
one strand that has no stretch

437
00:23:51,919 –> 00:23:56,960
in it, that it will hold up to

438
00:23:56,960 –> 00:24:00,000
adding on the tablet weaving

439
00:24:00,000 –> 00:24:04,320
decoration

440
00:24:04,320 –> 00:24:05,840
without having to have too much

441
00:24:05,840 –> 00:24:07,679
stabilization.

442
00:24:07,679 –> 00:24:11,440
It may still need to have some

443
00:24:11,440 –> 00:24:13,279
just because I don’t know what I’m doing

444
00:24:13,279 –> 00:24:15,520
and I’m making this up as I go.

445
00:24:15,520 –> 00:24:17,120
Now the last thing I have to talk about

446
00:24:17,120 –> 00:24:19,200
is

447
00:24:19,200 –> 00:24:22,320
this right here, my City Limits sweater,

448
00:24:22,320 –> 00:24:25,679
which I am knitting.

449
00:24:25,679 –> 00:24:28,799
And at the end of June, I did the three

450
00:24:28,799 –> 00:24:33,679
needle bind off at the shoulder seams.

451
00:24:33,679 –> 00:24:39,520
However, I tried it on

452
00:24:39,520 –> 00:24:43,200
and the armholes were so small

453
00:24:43,200 –> 00:24:46,000
that I almost couldn’t get my arm

454
00:24:46,000 –> 00:24:47,600
through the armholes.

455
00:24:47,600 –> 00:24:49,600
I know part of that is how the sweater

456
00:24:49,600 –> 00:24:50,880
was designed,

457
00:24:50,880 –> 00:24:53,600
because I know the designer. So she did

458
00:24:53,600 –> 00:24:54,720
design it to have

459
00:24:54,720 –> 00:24:58,000
a bigger body and thinner arms.

460
00:24:58,000 –> 00:25:01,120
I am knitting a size that’s less

461
00:25:01,120 –> 00:25:04,720
oversized in the body circumference, so

462
00:25:04,720 –> 00:25:09,440
the armholes-

463
00:25:09,440 –> 00:25:11,279
I’m not surprised that the armholes were

464
00:25:11,279 –> 00:25:13,279
too small.

465
00:25:13,279 –> 00:25:15,279
Also, I’m knitting this at a different

466
00:25:15,279 –> 00:25:17,360
gauge than what she calls for, so there

467
00:25:17,360 –> 00:25:18,320
may be some

468
00:25:18,320 –> 00:25:21,520
row gauge issues in that department.

469
00:25:21,520 –> 00:25:24,559
So I had to

470
00:25:24,559 –> 00:25:28,000
rip back the front and

471
00:25:28,000 –> 00:25:32,080
back separated pieces

472
00:25:32,080 –> 00:25:35,520
and the piece in the round

473
00:25:35,520 –> 00:25:37,440
down to where the armholes needed to

474
00:25:37,440 –> 00:25:38,799
start

475
00:25:38,799 –> 00:25:42,240
and re-knit them. So I

476
00:25:42,240 –> 00:25:45,279
have,

477
00:25:45,279 –> 00:25:47,440
I think I have like eight rows left of

478
00:25:47,440 –> 00:25:49,520
the front

479
00:25:49,520 –> 00:25:52,559
separated

480
00:25:52,559 –> 00:25:56,080
part.

481
00:25:56,080 –> 00:25:58,799
You can see the neck shaping there. So I

482
00:25:58,799 –> 00:26:01,039
think I have a

483
00:26:01,039 –> 00:26:04,559
a few rows left to go. I don’t recall off

484
00:26:04,559 –> 00:26:05,919
the top of my head, but it’s not

485
00:26:05,919 –> 00:26:09,440
far now. And then I can

486
00:26:09,440 –> 00:26:12,320
pick up the back and start knitting the

487
00:26:12,320 –> 00:26:14,559
back back up.

488
00:26:14,559 –> 00:26:17,600
When I did unravel it,

489
00:26:17,600 –> 00:26:21,200
what I did was

490
00:26:21,200 –> 00:26:25,760
put a progress keeper

491
00:26:25,760 –> 00:26:28,480
along the side where I needed to get the

492
00:26:28,480 –> 00:26:29,679
armhole

493
00:26:29,679 –> 00:26:33,200
to be and I threaded

494
00:26:33,200 –> 00:26:36,320
a lifeline through that round of

495
00:26:36,320 –> 00:26:37,440
stitches.

496
00:26:37,440 –> 00:26:40,159
It took me a while, but I did it. And then I

497
00:26:40,159 –> 00:26:40,640
could just

498
00:26:40,640 –> 00:26:43,279
rip all the yarn out to that lifeline.

499
00:26:43,279 –> 00:26:45,600
When I ripped out down to where it was

500
00:26:45,600 –> 00:26:48,640
in the round, I counted how many

501
00:26:48,640 –> 00:26:51,120
rounds it was until I got to the

502
00:26:51,120 –> 00:26:53,039
lifeline and wrote down that number.

503
00:26:53,039 –> 00:26:58,240
So I know how many rows to knit

504
00:26:58,240 –> 00:27:01,279
continuing. I don’t know if that made any

505
00:27:01,279 –> 00:27:02,640
sense.

506
00:27:02,640 –> 00:27:04,640
I took a lot of notes and I wrote down

507
00:27:04,640 –> 00:27:07,039
some numbers so I know exactly how many

508
00:27:07,039 –> 00:27:10,400
rows I have to go for all the things.

509
00:27:10,400 –> 00:27:12,960
But like I said before, July has been

510
00:27:12,960 –> 00:27:15,039
very hot, so this sweater has not been

511
00:27:15,039 –> 00:27:16,799
getting a ton of knitting on it.

512
00:27:16,799 –> 00:27:18,399
And I’ll be perfectly honest, it’s a

513
00:27:18,399 –> 00:27:20,000
little bit discouraging having to

514
00:27:20,000 –> 00:27:22,799
re-knit the entire of the top of the

515
00:27:22,799 –> 00:27:23,840
sweater.

516
00:27:23,840 –> 00:27:26,960
So I’m hoping it’ll fit this time

517
00:27:26,960 –> 00:27:30,159
when I finish the top of the sweater so

518
00:27:30,159 –> 00:27:31,760
that I can do the sleeves.

519
00:27:31,760 –> 00:27:33,919
Now the sleeves, I will probably have to

520
00:27:33,919 –> 00:27:36,080
basically just wing it because

521
00:27:36,080 –> 00:27:40,240
I am widening the armholes in this

522
00:27:40,240 –> 00:27:41,279
sweater.

523
00:27:41,279 –> 00:27:45,360
But as they are steadily decreasing

524
00:27:45,360 –> 00:27:50,399
tubes, I’m not terribly worried about it.

525
00:27:50,399 –> 00:27:56,000
We’ll see how this goes.

526
00:27:56,000 –> 00:27:59,200
Anyway, that’s July,

527
00:27:59,200 –> 00:28:04,799
I guess. And

528
00:28:04,799 –> 00:28:07,360
it’s very hot. And I don’t have a great

529
00:28:07,360 –> 00:28:08,159
way to

530
00:28:08,159 –> 00:28:14,840
end this. So,

531
00:28:14,840 –> 00:28:16,530
goodbye.
