It’s a beginning

Monday, April 12, 2010
Monday - the beginning of the week, and here are the beginnings of some projects. Haven’t been going too well or I would have been more chatty about them…
the dress
Working on the tank+dress reconstruction from last week. I’ve since detached the skirt from the top and need to re-sew it on, stretching the top as I go and adding ties at the waist. It was terrible trying to get this on my girl, there is no stretch in the skirt and I forgot about that little detail. Will take tips if you have them about sewing knits to woven fabrics. I can see the potential in this and it shouldn’t be too hard to complete this week.
the top
This is the top that I thought would be so much fun (and quick) to knit for myself. In case you were wondering, it’s that big red thing that I’m holding out. I’ve cast this on so many times, decided to knit it in the round, swatched, tried and tried again, and today I’m starting a version in crochet. This is the most bizarre thing – ever. I guess some yarns are just NOT made for certain patterns. One more time, that’s it. Going to crochet some tonight.
I’ve been working outside of my home for a few days and just being lazy while things pile up. Still waiting for that mojo that I was hoping for since my last post.
