My latest addition to my collection, a Singer treadle from 1891. I think this makes 71 machines.

    Yes, a block pattern. I'm thinking machine. I can do a straight stitch. I bought heavy needles on Saturday. I'll be emailing you. Medium length straight lockstitch????? Hmmmm...Yep HELP!!

    btw As I was working on the mittens last night, I realized I gave you some bad info. Corrected info: Cast on 60. Knit 45 rows. Bind off until you have 3 inches left. Knit 2 rows. Bind off 2. Knit 2 rows. Bind off 2. Knit 2 row. Bind off rest. Whip stitch up the side joining the two long sides together. Leave an opening where your thumb will go. (Here I slip stitch along one side or the other.) Whip stitch the rest of the way up. You have now followed a pattern, made fingerless mittens, and made something besides a dishcloth or a scarf.

    Thanks for your comment on my page. The socks, rather sock, as I only have one that is close to done, has been RIPPED out about 15 - 30 times, started over, thrown in the floor with me saying no shouting, "WHY DID I EVER AGREE TO DO THIS PROJECT!!" This will be my first and last pair of socks for a very LONG time. LOL!! I'm going to be afraid to wear them. I've got about 100 invested so far.

    As far as something simple to do that isn't a dishcloth: Cast on 35. Knit 45 rows. Bind off until you have 3 inches left. Knit 2 rows. Bind off 2. Knit 2 rows. Bind off 2. Knit 1 row. Bind off rest. Slip stitch up the side joining the two long sides together. Leave an opening where your thumb will go. (Here I slip stitch along one side or the other.) Slip stitch the rest of the way up. You have now followed a pattern, made fingerless mittens, and made something besides a dishcloth or a scarf. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I see on your page you quilt. I have questions. I want to recover my couch in a denim patchwork design using old blue jeans. How big do I want to do the squares? Does if even matter as long as the piece of material ends up being the size I need it to be? Would I just "hem" the squares together to make a big piece?
