Oh my gosh, you guys. I have been working on so many projects lately. Not that it's at all unusual for me to have a zillion projects going at once-- if I'm not busy with schoolwork, I make something else for myself to be busy with! So here's what I've been up to.
I snagged the Dulcie Dress from Anthropologie over winter break-- it's feminine and floaty and oh-so-soft. But the high neckline was doing nothing for me, so...
I'm just finishing up lowering and widening the neckline, I plan on completing that tonight. I tried it on and pin-marked where I wanted to new neckline to be, and then used a bit of the lining to create a new neckband. I tried it on and it's so much more flattering. All I have left to do is to stitch the clean edge of the band on the inside. Yay! Also, isn't that knit lace beautiful? The photo from Anthropologie's website really doesn't do it justice. Cutting into that was a scary moment, even after careful consideration.
I've also been making paper garlands for my etsy shop! I'm so pleased with how they're coming along. I have three up for sale now, and I'm working on a fourth that might be my favorite one yet. (Pssst... you know how in my etsy shop giveaway post, I mentioned a personalized surprise? Just saying. If you like the paper garlands, now would be an excellent time to enter the giveaway.)
Last up is my Field of Flowers blanket. I've started joining rows together! I only have 4 put together so far, but each one consists of 63 flowers, so it's still a pretty major undertaking. My next step is to weave in the ends on each of the rest of the flowers I've crocheted so I can keep joining them. I love, love, love how this blanket is coming along. When I'm stitching the rows together, I put it across my lap, and I can already tell how warm and cozy it will be when it's done. In case anyone's curious, the yarn is Louisa Harding's Willow Tweed-- it's 40% alpaca, 40% merino wool, and 20% silk.
