So, the canary yellow date night sweater is finished.
It fits very well and is beautiful, but I have to say I’m a little disappointed in the color. After all this hard work and excitement over making something for myself, I don’t quite think the color is very flattering on me. I may end up giving it away after all.
The pattern was really quite easy, but looks satisfyingly complicated. Maybe I’ll do it again in a nice red? Not for a while, though, I don’t think.
I got myself a blocking board, which made blocking it a breeze. It’s even iron-safe, so today I used it as a giant ironing board for some fabric.
This post catches me up on my recent crafts, but I do have some others in progress. A white baby blanket in a leafy lace motif is on my size 13 knitting needles, and I’ve already cut out the fabric for a new sunhat and a pair of pants for Violet. I wonder how long it’ll take me to actually get to the sewing machine again? Unfortunately, Emmett seems to be afraid of it these days, so that limits my sewing time.
