Ahh, success! Today was filled with crafty enterprises - sewing, yarn shopping and a wee bit of knitting. But first, here is the scarf I finished yesterday for my friend's Christmas gift. I like how it came out and I hope she is pleased with it. Between the scarf and some earrings, she should enjoy my crafty love!
I woke up about 7:30 this morning. After a little putzing around, I started back to work on the the green dress. By 11 AM, it was pretty much together. I love the gathers on it - at the waist and under the bust. At this time, the only thing left is the hem. I'm attempting a blind hem, which will be a first for me. I've been practicing on scraps all afternoon.... time to move on to doing it on the dress. I will either finish it tonight or tomorrow.
I also took a little venture out to my LYS today. I wanted to get a couple of things to keep me busy the next couple of week while I'm away. I decided to make my mom some socks for Christmas, as I know her sweater won't be done on time. (Luckily, her birthday is in January so hopefully I'll get moving in time to have it done by then.) So this gorgeous silver yarn will make some fancy schmancy socks for mom. And, some delicious purple-y yarn for a scarf, like above, for myself. Both are portable projects, to make my life easy.
What did you accomplish this Sunday?
