Not much progress to report.
For the most part, I've been trying to potty train my daughter. I don't want to talk about it and I'm sure you don't want to hear about it.
For those of you that guessed my project in the Sneak Peek was the Silk Corset, you were right. Unfortunately, I didn't think of this being a contest, but perhaps I'll have one down the line.
This weekend I tried to find the 20 or so buttons I would need for the Corset, but it wasn't going to happen. Every button I liked, they only had 12 of, or 15 of. I have a feeling the button hunt will take some time.
Anyway, here is my progress on the Corset...
I'm using Paton's Katrina, which is 92% Rayon - 8% Polyester, in the colour Dawn. I'm so not a blue person, but this was pretty and I could visualize the corset in this colour. I think I'll trim it in white.
I'm making the 38.5" size to fit my 40" bust. Can we say, "nerve wracking." This better fit!
I'll be making sleeves, but I'm still deciding how to go about it. In the beginning I was tempted to make the sleeves 3/4" in length and flared or belled? I'm still tempted, but think I'll stick with a short sleeve.
In other knitting, I've still been working on Eris, though not much. I'm pretty sure I'm at the halfway mark, though.
I also changed the colours of my blog. I guess you kinda noticed, huh? I tried for an autumny feel. Let me know how you like it.
Keep On Knitting...
