I was on vacation most of this past week, so I didn’t finish anything. I worked really hard on knitting the Tappan Zee cardigan, but there’s only so much knitting that can be done in Las Vegas… especially when you’re getting sunburned by the pool. Today, I picked up some swatches I ordered from MoodFabrics.com (I’m planning on making my husband a wool coat for this winter). These swatches are for one of the new Butterick patterns.
As usual, my picture taking abilities are pretty poor, so here’s a description of of the different swatches: Black wool with red accents and red gabardine; black and white cashmere in houndtooth and black gabardine; a purple wool (I realize it looks black) with lilac accents with a lilac wool/lycra blend. One of these will become the dress below, which is one of the new Butterick patterns from Gertie. I’m partial to the top two selections, but threw in the third because it’s different, and might be a little cute. Which would you choose?Share on Facebook
