Well, I’m still plugging away on my sweater. I think I have about 3 more pattern repeats before the garter stitch edging. I’ve decided on just doing cap sleeves instead of long sleeves, as then I can wear it longer. I can always put a long-sleeved shirt on under it when it gets colder. Ignore the purple, pink, and red threads. I’d had the purple one there from when I was trying it on to ensure the ribbed part was long enough; the other threads are holding the sleeve stitches.
Ages ago, I found this wrap skirt. It never quite fit the way I wanted, but I hung on to it for some reason. Well, I had the brilliant idea that I’d turn it into a shirt. I figured it couldn’t be too difficult, just use an existing shirt as a template and voila: new shirt. Well, it would’ve been that simple, had I used the right shirt as a template. I made the mistake of using a stretchy shirt for the template, when the skirt material is not stretchy. So yeah, didn’t work out. However, with just a little more work, it’ll make a nice dress for Charlotte, so hopefully I can do that.
And finally, I pulled out some ribbon yarns, just for fun. I found this black/white/grey/gold sparkly one, and decided to try making a scarf with it. I wanted it narrower than the pattern, just for my personal preference. I think it’s turning out nicely.
