Tried 'n' True, that is! I was so excited about how the Curves shirt turned out that I went back down to the sewing room this morning and whipped out another one, using a fabulous knit I bought at Rose City Textiles in Portland, OR. Start to finish, it took me about an hour and a half. The armscye princess draft makes for quick serging assembly, and the triple coverstitch is a great finish for the hem, cuff and neckline. And now that I have finally gotten the hang of how to end a coverstitch, it's going even faster.
I'm wearing them with the pants I made earlier this year as part of my uniform. I also need to make more of the pants because they're really the most comfortable pair in my wardrobe.
Like I Need Another Hobby...
This Saturday I'm going to venture into very dangerous territory: the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I've never been before, but many of my friends have raved about it. My daughter also loves to knit, so I'm going to find some yarn for her. And maybe, just maybe, I'll dust off my old knitting skills and take up a different type of needle too.
