general adventures in craftiness

Monday, June 17, 2002

I got a lot of knitting done this weekend! Finished the Maggie front on Saturday and both sleeves last night. Those pieces are blocking now and should be ready to sew up later tonight. Yay! I love finished objects. I went to the yarn store on Saturday afternoon to get some extra Rowan Kidsilk Haze for the sweater.




I also decided to go to two different Jo-Ann's stores, as well as Fabric Depot to check out sales. I bought some ribbon for the sweater and some material and stuff for a new sewing project: the blue plaid dress using McCall's pattern 3563, dress C on the far right. This is another summer dress that is very similar to the cherry dress, however, I'm making it strapless and with some black ribbon and rose detailing along the top. This should be a quick and easy sewing project. I'm having a hard time deciding on whether or not I should try to match the plaid on the seams. What do you all think?

Go USA soccer!
