More Pictures!

While I had the camera out the other day, I snapped a few photos of my Veronica sweater.  I actually completed this one a while ago, but haven’t finished sewing on the closures.  I’ve been procrastinating because the sweater is actually a tad small right now, so I don’t think I’ll be able to wear …

Narrowing down the UFO pile

So, I got the Dove Vest finished and delivered.  It’s pretty, but not something I’d wear myself.  I loved the stitch pattern though, so I’m kind of toying with the idea of trying to modify the pattern to better flatter my shape.  I probably won’t act on that thought, but I wouldn’t be opposed to …

And then sometimes everything goes right.

Instead of sewing today (which was my original plan), I sat on the couch watching hulu and working on my Veronica sweater.  Yep, for the entire day. Well, except for the lunch break I took with my husband to go get dim sum.  But other than that, yep, all day. But that means that I’ve …

When it just ain’t working…

…then it’s time to frog and start over. I ripped out my progress on the Cappuccino Cardigan and switched to the Veronica Sweater.  The Veronica has a much more structured look, plus it calls for a hook that is two sizes larger.  While that still doesn’t get me the right gauge, I’ve decided to stick …
