Fiber #32 // Green-Eyed Monster
I seem to keep misnumbering my handknit projects. Ah well. Here's my latest for your viewing pleasure. Fiber #32 // Green-Eyed Monster.
Remember how I threatened to make myself one? Well ... I did!
Yowza. How's that for an awkward modeled shot? Is it just me, or am I looking older than I did a couple months ago? I think work has been stressful! Or matured me.
Anyways, I basically followed the Selfish Seamstress' instructions except I made mine narrower and shorter. In retrospect I can see why she advocated for a wider and longer scarf, but I hate feeling like I'm choking on my scarves, so I tend towards the long and narrow ones. I have to say, this is one sweet scarf. Definitely looking forward to working it in MMM'11!
Speaking of MMM, I have decided to not go crazy over making myself new stuff for the month. In fact, I have resolved that between now and then, I will be more than happy if I make/finish:
1 cardigan (already 85% done)
1 dress (erg ... I am going to attempt a swayback alteration and to fiddle with the bust size, so I have been procrastinating this one)
1 skirt (already 60% done)
