Miette Sweater

Another piece in my spring wardrobe is done. This is the miette sweater by Andi Satterlund. I used Madelinetosh tosh vintage, in clover, only four balls. This is an excellent pattern and came together in a breeze. I did make it two inches longer than the pattern, but it is still cropped.  Perfect addition to my wardrobe.

Mohair Bow Cardigan Finished

After carrying around this project for more than a year, I finally finished it! The mohair bow cardigan from rowan studio 12. Six skeins of rowan kidsilk haze in the color candy girl. I made a few minor adjustments to the pattern. I made the button band a bit longer, it now gathers just below the bust. I followed the directions for the ties but then I decreased and made a smaller edging around the neckline, which made knitting it a lot faster and It looks more like the picture.

New Look 6587

I sewed on all the buttons and tried on the dress and it is too big! It is too big everywhere but the bust. Bleh. The measurements were just right for me so I don't know how it can be so wrong. I've been trying it on every step, but sewing the buttons on made a big difference.  Now I guess I'm going to take it apart and try to make it smaller. It is not flattering.

Look you can see the floor through my dress! That is not supposed to happen. Does anyone have any suggestions?  I need to take a mental break from this dress and move onto the next project.
