After an easy Saturday and a ‘recovery’ Monday booked off work, I feel like I have some real progress to show this week.
Although I didn’t realise quite how many fiddly little parts my amigurumi dragon had. I’ve still got four horns and another wing shape to make yet, not to mention the dreaded sewing together.
The biggie for today is my Tunisian jumper. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to just go for it and attach the sleeves, it was (of course) nowhere near as scary as I thought it would be.
I confess at first I had a complete brain fail and had to read the pattern at least 10 times before I understood what I was supposed to do (why are there no diagrams??), but I got there eventually and now my sleeves are attached and I’m working away at the yoke.
I’ve even tried it on! Which is when I noticed the increases in the sleeves have created these bumps.
It’s not a major issue really, I’m guessing nobody will be looking that closely once I’m wearing it, but I’m still hoping those bumps will ease out a bit with some blocking.
It seems unlikely that I’ll finish this week, but I can see me having my first handmade item ready to wear in the not too distant future. Ooh it’s exciting!
What’s everyone else working on? Or are you finding it too hot for fibre right now? Let me know in the comments!
