I haven’t posted in a few days because I haven’t had the energy for it. I don’t even have new pictures to show because the pictures I’ve taken are of a gift and I don’t want it revealed until this Saturday.
I could just take pictures of random things, but this requires energy.
I’ve been working on a dress that is more than likely going to become a tunic. Or a short dress. It’ll be a top of some sort and will require leggings more than likely. I altered the pattern after I finished with the bodice. I did the same thing another knitter did, use feather and fan stitches for the skirt. The only issue is I failed to think ahead — well actually I did but I was hoping it’d turn out alright. This pattern calls for cotton because, I assume, it is a heavier yarn. Therefore it’ll swish and sway as the wearer moves around. This would look lovely with feather and fan.
We’ll I’m using acrylic. I usually never do, however I purchased a bunch of Knit Picks Brava during last year’s Cyber Monday. I was able to use all of the colors except one.
The SO thinks I’m crazy. I tried to explain that as a knitter, patterns are basically just a recipe and you’re allowed (encouraged?) to make alterations for fit and/or style. I even kept notes. I plan on knitting another, maybe, but completely altering the style so it is a unisex pattern. We’ll see.
It’s Friday and that means only one more annoying day left of work and then I have another long weekend. I didn’t even realize it was a holiday weekend because I’ve been so busy with everything else.
I hope everyone else has a beautiful day.
