I haven't posted in a while and I haven't been knitting in a while. I did a bit more work on the gloves, but they are back in the basket. I did make a lining for my yarn basket, right in time to neglect my yarn, apparently!
But I don't feel too bad because I have been busy sewing! I've finished my beginner class at LACC in which we made a skirt. I didn't learn all that much from it, but it was nice to do everything from scratch and be on the same page as the teacher when I went into the intermediate class!
The only problem with it is that it is about an inch too big in the bust. The good thing is that I made it exactly as the pattern called for, it's just that I didn't realise I'd lost an inch in my bust. When I measured, it wasn't anything I did other than lose weight! The bad news is that in order to take it in, I have to take off the entire cuff, and zipper because the zipper is on the side. If it was in the back, I could fairly easily take it in on the sides, but because the zipper is on the side, I have to rip that out too. Drag. As much as I can't be bothered, I think I have to because it looks a gazillion times better with that inch pulled back.
I am currently working on the matching jacket and a Go-Go dress to go with my white Go-Go boots I bought last week. I am taking Go-Go classes next month, so it would be rad to shake it in a dress that I made!
