WIP: Two Skirts and a Beret1:49 PM
I declared in January that I had my sojo back so, where are all the pretty garments I'm supposed to be churning out!? Uh yeah, that hasn't been happening. It is, however, much to my disappointment and, generally, not due to a lack of motivation.
I technically did finish my lovely wool #SewGreenDecember skirt but, a series of events has prevented it from making it's online debut as well (save for Instagram, seen below). Hopefully, the issues will be resolved and we can take photos tomorrow.
My current sewing wip is a rayon black-and-white puppytooth "skater" skirt. I went against my better judgement and cut the fabric as directed, resulting in a bias pattern at CF and CB so, I'm torn about how this one will turn out. This is also the garment my new machine seized on so... yeah.
Fortunately/Unfortunately, a lovely local yarn shop hosted a 50% off closing sale while I was feeling disappointed about my machine situation so, now I have a shiny new knitting WIP too (figuratively and literally since it's Egyptian cotton):
It's Cloudy Day by Alana Dakos, my new favorite pattern designer. I've had Coastal Knits for some time, though I've yet to brave enough to make anything from it (her Rustling Leaves Beret has been on the top of my swoon list for a year!), then, by coincidence I bought Cloudy Day at the shop sale. Once I realized they were the same designer, I went through the rest of her patterns and am now dying! to get my hands on her book Botanical Knits (but, you know, budgets...) and have my fingers crossed that I'm able to pre-order Botanical Knits 2 as a birthday gift.
