I have a few things to post about, but rather than have a five-page post here, I’ll break it up. Busy, busy, busy. Work continues on without respite. Good for $$, not so good for knitting and relaxing. Thankfully I have roller derby for stress relief.
(edited to add a screen shot from our Saskatoon bout – it was filmed)
I had to tape my sleeves up; this uniform shirt, the sleeves partially cover the Sharpie numbers on my arms, so that isn’t allowed. Hopefully the photographer will upload the bout photos soon!
Ava’s not too sure how she feels about that development.
I finished knitting my skirt:
It turned out pretty good; I could maybe have made it a size smaller, or else have done some hip shaping, but it’s quite comfy to wear. I feel like it’s a little poofy in the front hip area, but it fits my butt nicely. My Ravelry project page.
I used four skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers and made it about 20″ long. I debated trying to sew a lining; in the end I just bought a short slip that I will wear with it. I would definitely make this again; in fact I do have more Cascade 220 for this purpose.
I’ll have more photos tomorrow!
