As promised, here is a glimpse into my world as of today.
I finished the cable and rib socks from the sock exchange. They aren't a mirror image, and I had a really hard time (mainly because I am apparently not good at paying attention to detail), but they came out all right.
I also finished sewing a skirt today. I took a class this afternoon entitled "Copy Your Favorite Garment". I had a dress that I love, but it's the skirt-section that makes it so wonderful. With the help of the instructor, I created a pattern for the skirt and picked out some Tencel fabric. I came home and sewed up a muslin copy, followed by the completion of the actual skirt. I always feel semi-naked in items I sew, since they are poorly finished, so I hope this skirt is different!
I've been working on some baby stuff for various babies (in addition to some socks for convenient bus knitting). Here is a sneak peak at one of the baby projects (no, I will not tell you who it's for... there are several baby possibilities...).
