Woohoo, friends, we’ve made it to weekend SEVEN! and on this sixth Friday staying at home, I have not one, but two finished projects to share.
Marc, bless his heart, is trying on the photo front. I do love that these photos show the sweater and the skirt to full advantage. and that he managed to capture me eyes open for a few shots. For sure my eyes were open in those where my back is turned 😉
The sweater is my second Notice (on Ravelry here) – I knit it exactly like the first one. The row gauge on this one was a little tighter (8.5 rows to the inch vs. 8 – note that the pattern suggests 8.5), so I had to knit more rows for the body. I knit the yoke per the pattern for both, so the armhole depth in this one is a smidge smaller. Still fits great. I really love this design! and yes, I have yarn to knit one more.
The skirt is Made by Rae’s Cleo Skirt. It’s my first attempt … and yes, I’ve finally caved to an elastic waist. I have plans to make two more of these skirts and I was thinking I’d make them a little less gathered and a smidge (an inch?) longer. Now, seeing the photos, I think maybe the fit is fine. What do y’all think?
The fabric is a Nani Iro Cotton Sateen, originally purchased in 2018 for a pair of pants (yes pants – what was I thinking?!) and I am so happy I’ve sewn it into something I LOVE and will wear.
Also, yes, this is the second post I’m sharing today. The one that maybe landed in your reader this morning was the one I wrote yesterday … and forgot to actually publish. Hence, today’s thing was to write AND publish a post.
any guesses on what tomorrow’s three things might be?
And finally, I am all caught up for Homeland’s finale on Sunday. Y’all, this season has been my favorite of all eight seasons. I can’t begin to imagine how they’re going to wind up All the Things (and there are LOTS of Things right now!) … I only hope Sara isn’t disappointed.
Have a weekend. Be safe!
