Social DisKnitting: Day 70

I don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to have actually good days for the first time since this all started. Hope it lasts a little while, anyway. After ripping out the neckline twice, I finished my bed-sheet summer dress. I’m so happy with it. Along the same line, I finished the hood of […]

Dressmaker

I’ve been sewing for a long time, but the only wearables I’ve ever successfully completed were PJ pants… Then I had to go to a wedding in Austin, Texas. In August. When I was trying to figure out what I was going to wear, a weird, planets-aligned series of events occurred. I found four yards […]
