I finished the Magnum Capelet I mentioned a while back. I really like how it turned out. I could have gone down a size and had it longer, but that's just fine by me. This is the FIRST knit FO of 2010! I am sooooo pleased.
Of course, the extra "happiness moment" for me is that this is one of the patterns from Chicago 1 where I received the amazing $500+ gift package of yarn. I am using that yarn for my latest project, the "Favorite Cardigan" in Wendy Bernard's Custom Knits book. I know the pic looks a little "scrunched", but believe me when I tell you that I like this one a lot, too. I am at the point where I need to add bust darts, so I'm at a slight pause for research to make sure I handle them correct without any "wrap holes".
Where are my sewing projects you ask? Well...I don't have any. lol. I did trace the cover dress from the latest Burda magazine. I am going to do a first run at the top portion to see where I need to add fabric for my chest size to be properly bandaged errr covered. lol. I have a cotton jacquard fabric that will be a great match for it. That's the project for this weekend along with my cardigan.
Oh yeah, I do plan on making a collage of cruise pics, it's just been a crazy week at work. Noted by the 2:30 pm lunch time today.
Have a great weekend everyone!
