I’ve been working on Belle Epoque for a few months now and I’ve come to a realization: I might not have to make the body as long as the instructions say. I’m a short, short-waisted woman and it’s very likely I’ve already met the length I’d need for the sweater to come to my hips, as it does on the model in the photo. The model is also the pattern author. I’m trying to decide how I’m going to determine if the sweater is long enough. There are no schematics for the pattern so I’ll just have to wing it.
Stash organizing is NOT going well. I simply keep forgetting. I work long hours lately and then when I come home all I want to see is my bed. I suppose I can rest comfortably with the fact that at least my yarn is kept in plastic bins, safe from prying children who like to unravel WIPS(like my son did once when I first started knitting and didn’t know any better).
I’ve been so tempted to get one of those standing knit baskets but they’re soooo expensive. What I really need is a set of these bad boys. And to think, I was at BB&B yesterday but hubby and I were full of pillows :). Maybe next month. (Ha! more like Maybe Xmas).
