Just a little post to keep track of what's coming up in the projects, and I found a bag of yarn I bought at Value Village that I haven't counted for yet. I've got a new swimsuit for Meg to show later, and a pink granny square blanket that still needs ends worked in. I really hated the yarn, so I'm not in a rush. I've got another granny square afghan happening as well. I still haven't steamed out Omelet, or finished re-fashioning a sundress I started earlier this month. But onwards!
crocheted sweater recently. The body of the sweater is knit in garter stitch on the diagonal. The back is a rectangle, and the front has a V neck. The sleeves were done in stockinette because I was tired of the extra time for garter stitch and I worried about running out of yarn. Once I had it done, I thought it was a smidge too snug for what I wanted. I knit garter stitch panels and sewed them up the side (maybe I did this before the sleeves). I made them a bit shorter than the front and back for extra detail. I loved the way the colours seem to glow against the black, and I always got compliments when I wore it. After Meg was born though, it just seemed too sloppy. I've always thought about ripping it out and re-knitting it, and I think the time is now. It'll be a good "sit in the park" project. I think I might even be able to keep the sleeves intact...
