More of a Sweater


Well friends, the play is over, and I'm feeling a little lost. This show was harder than usual to say goodbye to, but my body and my voice are definitely ready for some rest. Last night I sat home and watched an old season of Great British Bake Off and picked up the second sleeve on my Hetty, and it was actually a nice change of pace.

My Hetty is coming along swimmingly, and I shouldn't have a problem finishing it for the OAL deadline. I just have this second sleeve left, then I have to undo the bottom bind off and add some more ribbing rows (I didn't pay attention to the pattern and I don't love how it looks now), then just button bands and the collar. I haven't identified buttons for this yet, which could get tricky, but that's a problem for Future Kat.

For the sewing part of the OAL, I finally traced my pattern. I tried cutting out the front bodice, but the fabric I'm using is shifty as heck, so I need to find a flannel sheet or something to lay under it for cutting. At this point, I'll be happy if I can get the dress cut out by the end of the OAL, so we'll see how the rest of the week progresses.
