odd little update

well, its been a little weird crafting lately, I've slowed down a little bit on the knitting thing, and since i've re-set up my room and it's all crazy cramped I haven't really had the time, or inclination to really get my sewing going. But I have a few projects that I'm working on getting ready for sewing. One is a garter belt made from some scraps i had laying around. I have everything cut out and ready, I just need to sew everything together, which is easier said than done because i'm lining it so most stuff is going to be sewn on while it's inside out. . .eek! but it's not as daunting as it sounds, i'm being a bit of a whimp actually. I'm looking at trying to find either a good grommet inserter or somewhere i can find bulk grommet tape. I miss using grommets in everything. . .

The other exciting thing about this week is I've finally cracked the nut of entrelac knitting. I'm still on the rough side, and my pieces are going to need to be hella blocked, but so far i'm entirely pleased with myself. there's a headband pattern that I want to make for people for the holidays this year. . .which reminds me, i need to get started on the favors for the christmas party this year, maybe i can convince Sean to come with. . .although they don't live in vlaencia anymore. . .i'll have to find out where they moved to. . .

My next project that i'll post will most likely be the garter belt and may possibly be a "dorothy" dress that I found on craftster. Very excited.

gotta go study now.
