WordPress tells me that it has been 3 months since my last post….! The weeks have flown by, with only a little making going on. I’ve been sidetracked by a college course that I threw myself into last September. The timing seemed right (or at least as right as it will ever be!) but it has been all-consuming. It’s a Business I.T course which is a complete change from my original Art & Design qualification. Lately the more time I spend in front of a computer doing assignments, the more I want to run and grab some paint or fabric or wool and start making!
Since I last posted, I did manage to find my needles and finish my Chunky Cardigan …..
So far it has only been worn a couple of times. It’s cosy, but it feels like the neckline needs a bit more height, or a collar maybe. I made the sleeves extra long as always, to cover my freakishly long arms! I’ve noticed my long-sleeved tees wear out at the cuffs from my constant tugging at them, so I always make sure to add extra length to any tops.
As far as my knitting goes, I’ve only just started to get a good idea of what I should be making for myself. I prefer looser styles, and although I have avoided knitting with light weight yarns, I think I would get more wear out of lighter knits that could be layered up. So that’s what I’m going to focus on if I ever get time to knit again!
Oh and I have been sewing too….college interviews showed up a gap in my wardrobe. I was able to quickly make a wrap Burda top, which I will post as soon as I find the Burda Magazine I used….Yep things are a bit scattered round here thanks to my brain reaching full capacity:)
