I've been busy knitting away. . . I'm in the middle of the Funky Grandpa Sweater -- and it's very very exciting -- my first sweater:
All my projects can be found on my Ravelry page, linked HERE. I'm busy customizing the fit as I sew.
I've also finished my first stranding project that needs to be blocked - -the Wave-O-Saurus hat:
I'll post more pictures as soon as the blocking is finished - it needs a bit of shaping.
And, I had some more yoga socks (that I gave to my Pilates instructor -- I think she was bit aghast:)). Knitting projects as gifts can be iffy!
As far as sewing, I am finishing up the lined green wool cape, I cut out a tweed vest for J. when he plays with his band (I'm stuck and need more bemberg from Mood) and finally, I do need to make some repairs.
I've learned a little bit about a new trend in denim and jeans -- the selvedge pair. Which is to say for jeans -- they are made out of selvedge or "japanese denim" and the wearer wears them for months without washing. Then finally washes the jeans for a "custom" wear pattern in the denim. I'm planning a future post with more information.
Finally, I read Madalynne's post about best sewing blogs, PART 1; PART II, then planned to post - but Carolyn came up with an excellent post Here, with her list of top sewing blogs (advanced). I think it's worth reading and I learned about quite a few new blogs that I didn't know about.
Have a good long weekend everyone! XOXO, P.
