Things that make me go ummm
I seem to be struggling lately with my yarny projects. I'm finding it hard to find that one thing that I absolutely must make now. Normally there's at least a gazillion things jostling for the premium 'next in line' spot, so it feels a little strange to be dithering.
I think it's because my love affair with sewing is growing stronger every day at the moment. Most of the ideas that are getting me really excited at the moment are to do with fabric and thread.
So, as I pondered what my next great yarny project should be I floundered a little until I happened to stumble across this pattern on Ravelry. It looked pretty, it looked quick, it looked simple, it looked just right in fact.
I made mine a little longer in the body which I do prefer over the original, but to be honest it's not my favourite make of all time. I kept mucking up the pattern (despite its ease and simplicity) and as a result it looks a little messy but I really couldn't seem to summon up the energy to put it right. Also the waist band is a little too tight. I would appear my hips have grown since I last made myself something!
Until then, I shall wear my imperfect top over my imperfect hips and be perfectly happy with it.
Pattern: Sophie by Juliet Moody
