Ready for the weekend
I'm feeling pretty positive right now, which is good as my last deadlines left me somewhat down and drained. A positive mood is good for getting stuff done. I'm not sure I have enough of the grey yarn to do the i-cord cast-off to finish my friend's cardigan, so she may end up with green to match the stripes in the cardi. (I'll have a rummage in my yarn boxes just to make sure there isn't an extra ball of the grey somewhere, but it's not likely, and I'd rather use the green than a slightly mismatched grey.) Still, the end is in sight.
The sewing machine might get some use this weekend too. On Colette's website there's a whole post on ways to adjust the Sorbetto, including how to make shoulders wider or narrower, which means I'll be able to adjust my master pattern for the 60s top before starting version 3. (I'll just have to fudge narrowing the shoulders on version 2, as it's mostly complete.) Still, it makes me think deciding to make something different next, rather than going straight into 60s top v3, was a good idea, if it means learning skills I can put into play when using my precious vintage cloth. The Vintage Bazaar is in Frome this Saturday. I've got a busy day planned - butcher in Devizes, errands in Trow, housey stuff - so won't make it over, but that's probably a good thing. Need to use up some stash before buying more fabric.
