So here was the Pure brand sweater before:
And here it is now:
I told The EGE some little Goth girl will probably hit me over the head and try to run away with it; he said he doubted that would happen but that he would save it before she got too far.
Now I'm trying to finish up a jumper-tunic thing called Grackle Opera. It's from a pattern I made, and it's the first attempt (I have now made 5, but none of the others is embellished yet) and not one I'd ever make again. You know: you make the first one and go, "Oh, so *that's* how I should have done that," and then there you are, stuck with something that isn't quite what you wanted but that you don't want to throw away. That's Grackle Opera. I think I can wear it even though it's Not Perfect. Again: we'll see. I learned something when I made it, figuring out what I needed to do to get the shape I was imagining (#1 (this one) and #2 were trials; #s 3, 4, & 5 are much better, but there's still tweaking going on. I.e., it's not perfect yet).
So I hope to have that to show you in a day or so, depending on how much I get done. It's almost 4 pm, and I still haven't had a shower yet, so that's next on the list. Thanks for coming back by! XO
