QuoteAs far as blocking with two neutrals it would be one of your neutral garments.
Quote from: mudcat on January 23, 2019, 08:02:26 pmregarding shoes ... I'm going to have to say no because it is outside the spirit of the SWAP which has always been 11 garments. However, that would have worked as the bonus signature piece for last years SWAP. m lambie, the color blocks shouldn't be an issue. If you read carefully you could actually make an entire SWAP using only your two neturals and one print or accent piece. As far as blocking with two neutrals it would be one of your neutral garments.

I broke my ankle on Jan 30 and it seems that I won't be allowed to weight bear until March 14. I have a project already ongoing and can do some knitting right now, but I suspect will have difficulty doing all of the cutting if I want to cut out other items. Am I permitted to ask for some help with cutting, if I lay out the pieces for my partner to cut? If this is against the rules I will certainly wait and pile all of my cutting and sewing on the last six weeks or do a little bit at a time. This is my first experience of being without the use of both legs and so I am not really equipped with adaptive tech! I have a good, simple plan and have worked out how I can get it done.
Quote from: stephaniecan on February 12, 2019, 07:03:12 amThanks, bessiecrocker. I can tell I am in the hands of a pro. The biggest issue, if you can believe it, is the rolling chair. I don't have a great space for this and don't have one. I am going to have to work out a solution like that though. I think I know how I can set up my ironing board. Thanks for taking the time to help.

Quote from: angelsweb on February 12, 2019, 01:12:47 pmTo bring this back on-topic, Mudcat, if I use different fabrics for one of my neutrals, how closely do the colors have to be to matching? For example, can I include both a light beige/camel wool and a darker beige cotton bottom weight fabric? I'm obsessing because I don't have enough of the wool for a jacket and two pairs of pants ...

It's a topic that seems to interest and affect various members of this forum.thank you.

It's a topic that seems to interest and affect various members of this forum.thank you.I apologize if I offended anyone in my attempt to provide suggestions to aid a fellow sewer while at the same time alerting those not interested that I was veering off-topic. I used the word "enabling" in the sense of helping and providing encouragement and meant no disrespect or unkindness. Again, I apologize.Angelia
