works in progress

 [1]           [2]

[1] Peony by Colette Patterns. As you can probably notice, I played with the pattern a little bit. I changed the shape of the neckline… and a few more details. Specifics to follows when it’s finished. The fabric is cotton sateen from Gertie’s collection for Joann Fabrics. Usually her fabric designs are really not my style but I actually really like this one.

[2] A simple raglan-sleeve cardigan. My gauge matched Stefanie Japel’s Shapely Boyfriend, so I used it to set things up and then did the opposite of what the pattern promises: I skipped the shaping in the body for a looser fit. I still need to decide how long I want the bottom ribbing and then I need to knit the button band. I think a shawl collar might be nice.

What are you working on?

I write about sewing, knitting, and may sometimes be tempted to talk about books.
