Fun of making your clothes
The beginning was a Rowan pattern with weird angled sleeves. It was an interesting construction but looked a bit boxy on me (a regular difficulty with Rowan designs for me).
So i re-arranged the sleeves; changed the neckline but it still wasn't working for me. And so it was frogged. And out of the wool created two garments:
I made a cardigan http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Phill/mrs-darcy-cardigan#
and this lovely sweater http://www.pickles.no/yum-creamy-raspberry-sweater/ (as per the picture above. I really love the design an the fit....now i just need the weather to warm up so i can wear it.
I've made a new red jumper from fresh wool.....and now am frogging this blue monster
Please no-one talk me out of it cos it's already done......i wonder what it will become...
