Just to prove that I have actually been sewing! I know it hard to see because of the print and because it's on a hanger, but it has shape! The princess seams pressed beautifully thanks to my tailors ham. The same can't be said for the neckline/armholes. Is there a trick to square necklines that I'm missing?! Seriously, the poor iron had to wrestle with it to get it as good as it is and it's far from perfect! If you know of any tutorials or anything, I'd be so grateful if you'd let me know about them :)
Ok, now I have a confession to make. I'm holding Roobeedoo responsible ;) It was her comment on my last post last tipped me over the edge and resulted in this:
Yep. Just hours after posting about my knitting plan and how I was going to be good and finish all my WiPs before buying yarn for the Lauriel cardigan, I went and bought the yarn and needles anyway. But Roobeedoo is right, a hard slog of knitting will just put me off. So yeah. I like the yarn a lot, especially for the price. I also really like the colour. It's more green than on the website which is what I'd hoped :) I'm excited! The needles need to hurry up and get here so I can swatch and get started!
It's not all bad though. Look what I finally finished up yesterday:
