Oh. MY. GOD. I love this, it's so cute but skanky, which I think was the point. I wish we got "Project Runway" here in Australia. Anyone taped it and willing to send? Or is actually not that good?
Alright. I do like this yarn, but it's kind of getting fluffy already (like I've been wearing this sweater for years). As for the collar troubles...I just got sick of it all and cast off all remaining stitches, then double-crocheted around the top. I kind of fold the front bit under so there's more room around my neck and it ends up look ballerina-ish. Very cute, if i do say so myself! I'm pleased with it, really, all I need to do it somehow make it stay folded down (when I fold it down, you can't see where I started doing the neck decreases or anything, because it loks REALLY bad. But itr kind of keeps flipping up and unfolding itself)
I'll do some better pic later. I tried to get my little bro to take some good ones of my, that were bigger (my arms aren't really long enough to do anything 'cept close-ups!) but...let's just say, he'll never grow up to be a famous photographer.)
Also. Good news. Two good news's. 1- I have Macca's "training" tomorrow! Yay!..2- I started on the dress. I've sewed the front and backs bodice pieces together, and then sewed them to their respective skirt pieces. All I have to do is the upper bit which has elastic to hold it up, do the zip and the hook and eye, the straps (I think I'll do a halter neck) and hem it. I wont be hemming it that much, not at all, because I had to shorten it to make all the pieces fit! The dress is going to be gorgeous, though! The fabric and design make it so vintagey (and I'm not referring to the 80's when I say vintage, I mean nothing before the 50's)..Kind of like the house maid or something? IT's really cool looking, anyways. I don't know how often I'll actually be getting to wear this one, though. Aaand, winter is on it's way! Well..I have a month of February, I spose, and maybe a little of Autumn..But that's not as dramatic, no?
Oh yeah, and the new blog design is coming along nicely. I had to just make a new one after I mangled the other one. I dunno what I did wrong. Haven't even looked at it though. But everything's looking good. Yay!!
