I'm house sitting for John and Lisa this weekend, spending quality time with my favorite puppies.hold still dogs!oh how precious!I'm working on a sweater this weekend from (one of) my new books, Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel. I really love a lot of the designs in this book.
I'm making the short-sleeved cardi with ribbing. I'm using Cotton-tots yarn in white and yellow. I like being able to try it on as I go. I'm working on the back decreases now and will probably start on the ribbing tonight.
I know a lot of people struggle with buttons but I really love them. I’ve always had good luck with my machine’s ability to stitch them and I have a CRAZY large button collection. (Thanks to Grandma and Great-Aunt for that!) I also love a cut away, racerback style top so when I saw the Trevi Dress pattern by Hey June Handmade, it was an immediate “Yes!”. It’s the perfect silhouette for a versatile summer dress, not too bare but still cool and comfy. Wearing this dress makes me long to be eating brunch at the beach. Or maybe something more adventurous, like island hopping in Greece.
