The Black Sheep Gathering is coming! I got a slot in a lace edge finishing class. So here’s my baseline, hoping to get much better after the class! 🙂
- This should go beautifully with the 1912 blouse #0335 I’m starting for my summer parade as a Suffragist,
- in the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade,
- with the League of Women Voters of Oregon.
- We’ll be in a group with the Century of Action, celebrating
100 years of Women Voting in Oregon!
This sweater has really nice edge finishes, a neckline and front finishes that hold their shape. They are light yet strong. the picot edge tends to pull to one side, leaning adrift. I hope I can improve on this in the class, not just with fervent blocking.
Here’s the book & the yarn, loved working with it. I like it with the necklace my daughter strung for me. I even like it well enough to sew in one of my labels! 🙂
[Except, if I make it again, those sleeves will have to be narrower! They Billow! And the cuffs are a fashion statement unto themselves! HUGE! They re fun to wear but out of step with the rest of the sweater. I’m learning—swatch *every bit of the pattern*.]
