I haven't made any sewing progress, sadly. I'm at a stage with the jumper where it would be so much easier to have fitting help. I just need to buckle down and finish. I also have a flurry of new project ideas in mind and should settle on one--a quick successful project is just what I need.
Instead I've been knitting, a lot. This short sleeve sweater is almost done, it's waiting for buttons then the other half of the button band. It's knit with a combination of two cotton ribbon yarns, with stripes of reverse stockinette to add texture and show off the colors. The ribbing pattern is one I made up.
I'm currently deadline test knitting a stocking, very hush hush ;)
I also made a ruffle silk/mohair scarf and am finishing a pair of socks, both for my mom. The scarf is almost embarrassingly easy--made with Rowan Kidsilk Creation and crocheted following the instructions on the ball band. Rowan has videos showing both knit and crochet versions.
