I've been working hard on a project to wear at the New York Sheep & Wool festival this year. I don't think I've put it on the blog yet, so let me catch you up.
I got the book Knitting It Old School at the end of August. Amazon sent it to me before the initial release date. I got the book because I've met one of the authors and a lot of the designers, but I like it because the projects are a lot of fun. I fell in love with Rally, and I got yarn for it and cast on within a couple of days.
I had a little problem when I got to the skirt. I wasn't sure about the cream I had chosen as contrast color for the skirt, and I wondered if I should have used green instead.
I ripped it back and tried it again in green.
And then I knew that the cream was actually the right choice! So I ripped the green back and went with the cream all over again. Yeah, I wasted some time, but my mind was at ease for making the right choice.
I finished up knitting the dress on Saturday night.
It's soaking right now, and I'll block it out tonight. It's a good thing, too, because I'll be headed to Rhinebeck next weekend!
See that green fabric in the top left of the photo? That's to make a shirt to go underneath the dress. I have it mostly sewn up now, and it will be finished in the next couple of days. I hope to show you both items very soon!
