Blah, blah, blah

Ahhh! Almost the weekend! What a relief! Anyway, here is my obligatory photo of me wearing Fifi.

It's not the greatest, but it was the best I could do with the time constraints! Anyway, I'm rather ambivalent about this piece. I just don't love it. I think if I had made it with 3/4 length or long sleeves, I probably would love it. I considered doing one or two more pattern repeats on the sleeves, but when I tried it on, they seemed about right so I didn't. I will probably wear it layered over a peasant top of some sort.

I started Juliet. The garter stitch fabric is rather dense. I like the yarn though. It has a nice feel. I'm toying with the idea of making 3/4 length sleeves. When I get to the point where I join the body, I think I will put the sleeve stitches on waste yarn instead of binding them off. If I make them longer, I will most likely continue knitting them in garter stitch then increase so that I have enough stitches for the lace pattern repeats. Hopefully the lace at the bottom of the sleeve would give it a belled sleeve effect. This is just an idea. I don't know if I will do this or not!

Here's a little eye candy:

I always have at least 2 flower arrangements in the house. I just put that one out yesterday!

Anyway--this is a brief post. Sorry for the lack of cleverness this evening!

  1. I think that Fifi looks beautiful on you! But I know the feeling when it's just not exactly what you want. The kitties are cuties!

  2. I like Fifi on you, but it looks a little loose in the body. It was more fitted looking on the dress form (maybe you lost weight since you adjusted the dress form?) I would redo the sleeves if you don't like them. Maybe make them just a little bit longer or as you said, make them 3/4 length to make it more versatile. But I also know from personal experience that sometimes "when you're DONE, you're DONE" and don't want to work on a project anymore. Have a great weekend! I look forward to seeing your interpretation of Juliet!
