Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, everyone!
Today’s desk shows that I’m still working on the sweaters I had started last week. But the piles are smaller. Two of them are complete, the purple turtleneck and the grey wool. The plan was to take photos modeling them today, but it ended up being nearly 80° and humid, so, no.
This being New England, I’m fairly certain it WILL get cold enough to wear them soon, so I promise to have pics when I won’t croak of heatstroke taking them. 🙂
The above photo shows me working on a third sweater. It’s got princess seams, all double top-stitched, so it’s a bit time consuming, as I just can’t zip it up on the serger. Instead I have to serge the edges, then sew the seams with the conventional machine, press seam open and then do the top stitching. But the extra detail does look nice.
Those little green sticky notes on the back of the pattern are notes to self so I don’t have to figure things out all over again next time I make it. It’s the same concept as writing notes next to recipes in a cookbook once you’ve figured out a tweak that works.
This coming weekend I’m going to the Bead Affaire bead show in Watertown, MA. If anyone reading this is going, too, send me a note and we’ll meet up!
