So, it has been quite a long time since I last posted. But I have been working on a big project lately so I haven't really had much to blog about.
The big project has been my sweater! It turned out quite well. My only beef is that I think I sewed all the pieces together a little to tightly. The result is that I don't think I will be able to wear anything with a thick sleeve underneath as the arm holes are a little tight, also, the sleeves tend to ride up a bit. But overall I am really pleased with it! (Also, it's OK that I won't be able to wear sleeved things under the sweater, it is already quite warm is and snuggly!)
Anyways, here are the pics:
I have already started a few other projects since this sweaters completion (about a week ago). A friend at work was admiring my most recent mittens and asked me to make a pair. I told him I would for a price and so here I am making more mittens! I have one done and am about a third of the way through the second.
Have yet to sew in the loose ends as you can probably tell. (it is by far my least favorite part of any project, so I always save it for last)
Also, just started a pair of leggings...more later...
Sadly, I have hardly touched Beartato since I got home. *Sigh* He's so close to being done as well. I have made a resolution to finish him once I am done with the mittens. It will probably only take a few hours...I'm just at a boring part so it's hard to get motivated. But I will finish him soon!
