So here it is:
At the time this fur yarn was not in fashion and was probably generally considered a bit naff but I had liked it last time round so bought it anyway. Also I was bored on holiday and it gave me a project to do. I mixed it with cheap black dk. I knitted both yarns double since I wanted a fast project for a couple of weeks. Needless to say I then never finished it. Since this type pof yarn is now in fashion - or probably actually on the way out again by now, I decided to finish it off once and for all.
It looks OK on Harriet ( my dressform) but not so good on me:
Well maybe with a summer dress or a denim skirt?
Although I wanted short and wide I really am not so keen on this look at all right now.
I have yet to add the buttons which I will do in the next few days but to be honest I am considering frogging it back and starting something else. I will probably leave it as part of my wardrobe for a couple of months or at least until spring arrives and then decide if it is actually wearable or not. It will unpick easily anyway.
I think what I need to do is to follow a proper pattern in the correct gauge it was written in and make some decent knitwear since I seem to be making lots of slightly odd articles of clothing right now. Once upon a time I used to knit nice clothes. Not to sure what happened here. Time to increase my knitting knowledge as well as sewing knowledge maybe.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you back again soon
