I finally finished knitting my jumper! This was after running out of wool and not being able to find anything matching anywhere, so I had to shorten the sleeves a bit... Not ideal but it's done so yay! I made it a size up so it was nice and slouchy (clearly a mistake where the amount of wool was concerned), and I did make sure I had enough wool, really I did! It must have been because the pattern recommends you use a certain type, but surely 50g is 50g regardless? Or am I being dense about maths again? Meh, who cares, it's done! I need a new project now - think it's time to raid Mother's stash again ;)
I found these jeans in TK Maxx last week IN MY SIZE! Ok, they were a size up, but they still fit and most importantly, they have a 36" inside leg, perfect. I'd never heard of Vera Moda before but I may have to hunt them out if they're gonna be useful in future!
I'm in slippers cause it's been a sewing and movie day since I got in from the gym - I'm hemming my friends trousers and trying to make an incredible vintage skirt fit me by moving the zip a bit. It seems easy enough when I'm merrily unpicking things but I generally faff something up by miscalculating the sewing it back together part... Altho that can wait until tomorrow since I'm working tonight and I'm totally not prepared yet. Anyone taking advantage of Orange Wednesday? What are you seeing?
