I did decide to take the t-shirt in a bit. I took it in about 2 inches on each side. It's still nice and baggy, but I feel it's a better fit now. It didn't take even half the time it took to make the t-shirt to adjust it. I suppose that's because I already had the basic t-shirt shape, and had the existing seams to guide me.
Even so, adjusting the t-shirt took most of the week, but I still managed to fit in some knitting. I managed to get 2 or 3 inches of the blanket knitted. I'm now pretty close to the half way point on it. :)
Yesterday, I was looking through the braille patterns I got. There are a couple of things I'd like to make for certain people. The problem is that they call for other stitches and I've never gotten the hang of more than just plain knitting. So, I asked my Nan how to do the other stitches. She explained in detail, and I think I can do it.
The blanket I'm making for Carl - which is to be my next knitting project - is to be done in squares anyway, so I'm thinking I'll use the squares to practice different stitches. For example, do blue in various different stiches to get a pattern, and red in plain knitting. Besides, it'll help me to know I'm definately not putting two squares the same colour beside each other when I sew them together.
About the only other thing I have to add to this week's craft update is that I got some more fabric on Tuesday to make a couple more t-shirts. One bit is baby pink, the other bit is grey (if I remember correctly) and I think Mam said it has swirls and stars on it. You'll get to see it when I'm done anyway.
I'd like to finish the current blanket before I do anything else though.
