The Paper Dolls Sweater was cast off yesterday and I grafted the underarms and did a lot of weaving in ends.
I'm not sure I'm 100% okay with it. I like the colours I chose and the pattern is an easy one to follow, for sure. It didn't stop me from screwing up the decreases on the neck. lol I tried to do continental for the knitting and my usual English for the purling and consequently, my tension in the yoke wasn't very even. Also, I'm pretty sure it's not going to fit it's intended recipient. We'll know for sure when I go home for my visit. If it doesn't, there's another little girl who will be happy to get it for Christmas, I'm sure. :)
And of course the bag pieces that I cut out when I made the first bag. I knew I would make two so I just cut out twice the fabric pieces. Then they sat. Silly right? So last night I just did it.
I wanted the second version to be the more sophisticated older sister of the first trial bag, and there were definitely some mistakes that I didn't want to repeat. The bulky seams for instance. But then I made some new mistakes (of course!). I tried to avoid turning under seams and creating extra bulk that way, but I ended up with a mess on the inside of the bag.
This one is lined too, where the first one wasn't, so I guess it's a trade off. It looks nice from the outside, though. :)
So, the list, yet again.
