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.
This summer is turning out to be the summer of the caftan for me. Last week I shared a caftan hack of Lou Box Dress 1 pattern. And today, I have a fantastic, tropical Charlie Caftan to share. This year I’ve only sewn one garment with a zipper so I’m definitely into a the comfort zone with my me-mades. And, I’ll be spending a week long vacation in Hawaii this month so I’m planning to spend a lot of time in caftans. My skin is super sensitive to the sun so I always cover up as much as possible and this year, the caftan will be my go-to for chic coverage.
