WIP Wednesday 3/9
So what's on my needles this week, you ask? Only 2 projects. The first is Evie's sweater. It's a great pattern, I think. I've gotten through the shoulder increases and was planning to work through the leg openings last night but I hit a snag. I was confused by the instructions on what stitches to put on a holder, etc. So I sent a message to the designer and hopefully I'll hear back from her soon. Once I get that figured out, I can keep plugging away.
I think the collar is going to be a little snug/stiff because of the size needles it was knit on. The body is also looking a bit large for Evie. I tried it on her last night, after which she ran and hid under the couch. Hopefully she'll like wearing it when it's finished! I know part of the issue in the sizing is because I used a worsted weight yarn instead of a lighter weight.
The other project is X's Bathrobe. It's still on the list because it's sitting in my WIP bag. Since I'm now waiting on further instruction for Evie's sweater, and all the charity hats are done, this project will be getting more attention. I got about 6 rows in last night. That was okay progress, but I'd like to see it go a little faster.
In other news, my Etsy shop is back from vacation. Now that I have other life-obligations out of the way, I can dedicate time to sewing again. I've already got a few cases in the works so I know that will keep me busy. My machine has been looking rather lonely and my sewing table has been piled on in the last few weeks. Time to do some cleaning and reorganizing to get back in the groove!
