I finished one project yesterday, but fell asleep, so you get two today.
I did a 5km run this morning. It was actually 4.65km when I got back to the house so I turned around and did one loop to the end of the street and back to get to 5km.
Other than stretching after the run, this is all I did today.
Yesterday I finished my second test knit. This one was for Alicia Plummer for her Wyeth Kids. I made this sweater out of Estelle Worsted in a dark navy blue and I think it will be a very handy sweater come Fall and Winter.
Today I tackled a new project. As a teenager I made some of my own clothes, but I really haven’t done a lot of garment sewing since. A couple of weeks ago I had seen some fabric on sale that I really wanted to make a tank top out of, so I bought it and today, I got to the project.
I used a free pattern online from SewMuchAdo. It came with instructions that were quite good, it would have helped if my printer had done as good a job!
I had the top practically made when I slipped it on and realized it was way too big. I have learned the hard way that I need to hold the pattern up to myself before I start cutting fabric so I can alter it right away.
This top took way longer than it should have, but I now have a tank top pattern that works for me and I’m thinking there will definitely be another one in my future.
Well that’s all for my day. Have fun!
