Hi, my name’s Beccy and I’m a bit new here, but you might have spotted me over on WR or on my blog, Wipster :)
I just wanted to share my two newest handmade things!
The cardigan is the Que Sera pattern from Knitty. It’s taken ages because I got caught up in other projects right in the middle. I like the pattern but I realised late-on that I wouldn’t be able to get the button spacing right so I just added an extra buttonhole when I knitted on the neckband. I think it looks ok? The buttons are some vintage ones I picked up at a jumble sale and the wool is some bluefaced Leicester I hand-dyed with weld an age ago. It’s a little bit itchy, but I’ll get over it because it’s such a pretty pattern!
The skirt was one I’ve had for ages, but it was too big and had a bleach mark on the hem:
To fix it I added two box-pleats, one in the front and one in the back to pull in the waistband. Then I hemmed it shorter to get rid of that nasty red bleach spot.
Hopefully I’ll have time to make lots more things to show you,
