How come it is Thursday already?! Wasn't it Monday a minute ago? Time seems to be flying by - as it usually does, when you have stuff to do.
As most of you will probably have seen, I did a guest post on Holiday Treats (cinnamon stars and hot cherry chocolate, yum!) over at Rhinestones and Telephones last Tuesday! Hop over if you haven't seen it yet and want to try a new recipe for holiday cookies!
My mom, sister and her boyfriend even came up on Wednesday and stayed until Sunday morning, and I spent the days shopping and walking about the city with them. Of course, evenings were spent celebrating, drinking, eating and having fun - so not much time for sewing. On the upside, I did quite a bit of knitting before the performances to settle my nerves. So now my scarf is finished!
I think it's about 2m long, I can wrap it around my neck 4 times! *g* Even with my blocking, it's prone to rolling up though. It might be that the bamboo rayon yarn doesn't block that well. Any suggestions?
I did manage to finish another garment and Fall Essential, though. A raglan longsleeve from one of the Fabric Market jerseys, the pattern is from Ottobre 5/2008. Apart from a bit of rolling, the jersey was very uncomplicated to sew. Not too stretchy. :) I still need to hem, and I'm thinking of making a few matching fabric flowers for embellishment. It looks rather plain like that. But good for layering...
Hope you're all having a good week!
