Where have I been?
Let's see, I worked everyday from Wednesday until Saturday. And it was REALLY busy so I was basically useless during the day. Just some knitting and then off to work again.
1. I finished the Eyelet Cardigan. Here's a really crappy photo of it. You can't really get the drape of the sweater from the photo...I'm delivering it today. I should say that I'm presenting it today. There will definitely be some changes....
2. This is a complete redo of the Handpainted Pullover. It is super stretchy and quite pretty. It's being presented today also.
3. & 4. Some fun production pieces have been knit in the last week also... (sorry about the feet!) I'm so over these pieces...can you tell?
5. And another Cowl Sweater...
So let's see, I knit 3 sweaters and 2 scarves in a week. I guess I've been busy knitting. I can't even tell anymore!!
Yesterday was SEWING DAY!! I'm a little excited because I'm on to a new project. YAY.
This is what I'm making. It's a Burda Pattern.
I'm using the custom fabric made for Diane Von Furstenberg fabric that I snatched up at Beckensteins when they were having their $5.00/yard sale. It ended up in the the wrong section!! The sales guy got into trouble but I made off with 3+ yards of super yummy fabric. It's the black/cream fabric in the photo. I have to go to Mood and buy some silk lining today. (Plus I need to buy buttons for my dress that I finished....I need to put up a photo.) I bought this pattern because I didn't want to have side front and back panels. I wanted to keep the print in as few pieces as possible. When I cut it out yesterday I cut the back on the fold so it's one piece - instead of putting in some slight waist shaping and having a seam....smart, huh? I love the coat. I love the grommets and the ribbon.
I had an interview yesterday for a restaurant manager position. It was an awesome place. But, uh, 5 days a week and $40,000.....are you kidding me? Plus A LOT of work and stress. The restaurant seats over 500 people! I went on the interview because they called but I don't think that's what I'm into. I'll stick to the bartending! The money is WAYYYYYYYY better. I have a few interviews today. What I'm finding is that I can certainly find a job but I'm going to have to be selective as to where I go....So, I guess that's good news.
I also got a call from VK for Spring/Summer. So that's good news too.
So why am I feeling so blah? Must be the weather or perhaps all of the knitting. I still have 8 sweaters, 28 hats and 11 scarves to make. OY!
