Unfinished jacket on a mannequin.
(It's missing collar, facing, bottom patch pockets with flaps,
sleeves, cuffs, buttonholes and on and on. Aaaaaahhhhhhhh!)
I constructed and drafted a pattern (flat) for this jean jacket by following a design illustration and am now in the final stages: Assembly. I'll work on a bit tonight (it's due on Thursday) but right now I need to draw and color some fashion figures for my sportswear design project and work up some samples for tomorrow. As Sil
says (and she knows what she's talking about) the sweatshop Chez Skinnyrabbit is in full force right now.
In knitting news, I didn't knit a stitch all weekend! So what you see here
is basically where I still am with my projects. Sigh. But I'm looking forward to taking about 30 minutes today to just chill in front of the t.v. while knitting on my CeCe Cardi
. I'd love to show some serious progress on that one because I want it to be my next finished project.
While I do that, let's chat a bit. Which do you prefer....
Pullovers or cardis?
Lace or cables?
Intarsia or fair isle?
Stripes or variegated yarn?
Hats or socks?
Double points or magic loop?
Colin* or Keanu?
(I added my own preferences in my comments box.)
*Colin earned some serious points with me in the movie What a Girl Wants. There's a scene where he's wearing leather pants and he is a-smokin' in them!
