Slowly but Surely

Slowly but Surely

I’m still very much a novice even though I’ve been knitting for a while now. Trying new endeavors and really challenging myself is the best way for me to learn.

I’ve been working on that dress from my first blog post and got to this point:

I’ve frogged my progress 4 times until I was happy with my results. I think I have it right.

Thank goodness for the internet. I’ve found plenty of resources showing techniques, and even a knit-along for this pattern (it’s for the tunic version):

Progress is slow since I’m still new to most of what I’m doing with this pattern. The best way to learn is to immerse myself in it. Still trying to finish it this year on top of the many other things I have planned. 😀

Vintage Yarn

Vintage Yarn

I was given some yarn a few months ago and I’ve been sitting on my stash because I can never agree to what I want to make. The yarn is vintage, probably bought in the 90’s and kept in storage until now.

There is something special about vintage yarn. Especially yarn that’s at least 20 years old. Maybe I should try a vintage pattern?
