Another shirt from Girly Style Wardobe. It was supposed to have a little ribbon tied around the waist band, but the shirt said it was done after the hem and I listened. The fabric is 100% cotton, the shirt is view K from the book, in case you have it and were wondering. Despite the patterns being written in Japanese, the visual directions are really quite good. It does help having some previous sewing experience, too, because you have an idea of what to do at certain steps.
Despite it now being fall, L4 won’t be able to actually wear the shirt this week since it is supposed to be warm here (91 on Tuesday–not warm for Tara, maybe, but in upstate NY in September, that’s toasty). I have a short sleeve pattern from the book traced, maybe I’ll get to making the shirt this week. It might prove to be more challenging because it has a pleated front. Stay tuned.
Today was also a knitting day! I was able to meet up with people from Ravelry as well as those with whom I’ve been knitting over the past few weeks. It was fun, but a bit crazy, too, with so many conversations going on at once. I did actually knit, not just talk, while there. The first half of the table runner is officially DONE! (choirs of angels are singing, yes.) I even knit several rows on Cables and Os today. It and a gift for L3 will be my knitting WIPs this week as I am waiting for needles to arrive to keep working on the table runner. Tomorrow is a test day in my statistics class, so I get to knit while the students sweat. [insert evil chuckle here]
