The first of my two chair covers is finished, apart from some sort of tab or ties to hold the rear pleat closed. It needs a good press, but I’m pleased with it. It certainly makes a rather horrible, cut-down, vinyl-upholstered dining chair presentable enough to go in a bedroom.
As for the fastening at the back, I still can’t decide what’s best – a tab secured with a button or Velcro? ties or ribbons that can be tied in a bow? just a hook and eye?
I’m hoping that inspiration will strike by the time the second cover is made.
Knitting-wise, I’m making very slow progress with the lacy scarf I’m working on, called the Vigneto Wrap.
It’s worked centre-out from a provisional cast on and I’m only a few inches into the first half. I’m in a section that has a 52 row pattern repeat at present, with lace worked on every row.
It’s virtually impossible to knit it while doing anything else save breathing, which has made me a most unsociable member of my knitting group for several weeks now. I’m inclined to give it a rest for a while by knitting something simpler that will allow me to speak while I’m in company and catch up with boxed sets on the TV when I’m alone.
