Tie me cardigan down, sport

Here is my wrap cardigan in progress

- the question is, should I just hem the neckline and bottom or put a narrow lace band on (a narrow version of the sleeve ends)

Here she is, finished with hem as suggested. She is comfy!

Hmm, is 'arms akimbo' my only stance?

It's, it's, the licorice twist

Ah, I love me a quick dress. The cutting out took the longest, and that wasn't that long.... I left out the back darts, they really weren't needed (darts in a knit frock, straaaange!)
Hellooo another tripfit methinks!

Black doesn't come out so well in photos - I knew I should've used camel! Here is the detail of the twist. There is a bit of drapey stuff just under the bust, but I don't mind it. I wonder how this knit will wash?

Palm Puff

I think I shall call her Lola.

I haven't done the buttons yet (turkey basting is so intrusive) but here she is. The lady at the vietmknees shop sold me some nice unobtrusive black buttons for 5c a pop, bless her.

Oh, I love these sleebes. So darn cute and as easy as pie. Probably easier, as I make more sleebes than pie.
