The Eyes Have It




I've been busy with the eyelet tool, I only wish I'd found this years ago.


 A few new project bags in the shop.


I finished off another dress from a rather gorgeous piece of vintage barkcloth, I just had a big square so I went a bit Japanese and didn't use a pattern, seam up the back, arm slits and a bit of neck shaping.


The button tin had to be scoured for the perfect match for my  Sweet Olivia,
a free pattern by Drops Design, Garnstudio.

 

I knit it in the wonderful local yarn,  Shropshire Ply by Ewe & Ply who can be found at various wool shows and in the Market Hall Shrewsbury - if you are visiting for the first time, it doesn't look very promising from the outside but delights await you inside!  I cocked up by knitting the sleeves inside out but just chopped them off and kitchenered them back on the right way around.


I tried a ribbon button band for the first time after watching a few tutorials.


It wasn't as tricky as I'd expected


I'm very pleased with the finished article and I've worn it already, another one ticked off the list and on to the next.
