look, guys, i’m a featured member on pattern review!
i don’t actually know what that means, but it’s kinda cool nonetheless! my picture! on the front page! wheee!!
i figured that was good enough & forged ahead with putting them on the jacket front:
they are actually fairly camouflaged (hurr durr because of the print, get it?), so it wouldn’t even matter if they were imperfect. actually, i think they turned out pretty good!
ok ok, that’s enough bound buttonholes for one day!
unfortunately, my progress with the jacket comes to a stop now because i can’t decide if i want to fully tailor the thing & interface the whole front, or if i just want to do some “light tailoring” and only padstitch the back collar & put in a back stay. what would you do?
either way, i’m out of hair canvas so i have to order more. BOO!
in other news…
i started my first real knitting project – it’s a scrunchable scarf! the yarn is some soft alpaca i frogged from a scarf i (very poorly!)crocheted a couple of years ago. aha knitting is so thrifty! anyway, i’m really excited! my first knitted scarf!
also, i celebrated black friday by staying home and painting my living room blue.
with special thanks to my patient boyfriend (who did the rolling) and all the hit songs of the 90s – i couldn’t have done it without y’all.
