OK, I know I've been slacking on my blogging. Here's what has been going on:
My MIL *lurved* my shrug and has requested one of her very own. She said it would be perfect for the doctor's office where its always cold. I would have just given her the one I made but it was a little too big on her. She wants the same color and smaller bell sleeves. Guess there'll be more stockinette in my blogging future. (She has also "suggested" that I make one for my niece with matching legwarmers.)
I finally went back and ripped out the shaping that I did wrong the first time for hubby's sweater. Below is a pic if the finished back. I have cast on for the front piece so I don't lose momentum.
I've been working on the Alene camisole. I should be done with shaping later today. I will block and seam the two pieces sometime this week. I'm thinking of doing the lace bottom in the round because I don't think I'll wear it as much if it is open all the way down the front. My only concern would be if this somehow makes the lace pattern look weird. I guess I'll just have to try and see.
And finally, I was the third place winner in Glampyre's design contest. How awesome is that?! (Please don't hold my lack of artistic skill against me.)
ETA: It looks like Glampyre will be working on putting out the winning patterns over the course of the upcoming year. When I know more, I'll let you guys know.
