Finished at last

It feels as if I have been working on this forever, but looking back at recent posts, its only been just over a month. Considering that I finished the lace panels ages ago, I guess it didn't take that long. Anyway, here is the finished product...

Cathay top

I am pleased with the result. I promised myself as I sewed this together that my next garment will be done in one piece. I haven't done this much sewing in a while, and I forgot how much I hate doing it. I am not handy with a needle and thread at all!

Next on the burner is Coachella from Knitty in GGH Velour, red. It is underway, and I am down to the bottom of the front, almost ready to join again in the round. Hoping this will be quick and easy. Then it will be on the the Icarus shawl in Camelspin. I think that will be my Westport knitting along with some STR socks.

Great to see it on you looking so fab! Well done with the sewing up -I'm also always on the lookout for garments which require minimal/none, though sometimes I 'forget' and get ensnared by a pattern which I will suffer for in the end!

Well done, it looks lovely! I'm avoiding sewing something up at the moment, but the longer I leave it the more scared of it I become!

See you on Saturday. Alice x
