The wedding dress is coming along. This last week my mom and sister came to visit and my mom helped me pin the top on to the skirt. We determined I need to fill in the top V more once I get the top basted onto the skirt. Over all I am very happy with how it is turning out. Here are a few photos to give you an idea, none with me in it yet (those extra rows need to be done first, ahem)
It is hard to get a good photo of the whole dress, the seam where the top and skirt meet hits about my natural waist.
And here are the shoes I am going to wear with the dress, lacey red shoes for a lacey dress, what more could a gal want? I was very tempted to get them in a couple colors they are just so cute.
Hopefully I can finish up sewing the top on tonight or Friday, allergies are making my eyes itch even with drops so it is hard to work on this kinda of stuff for more then 30 min at a time but it is getting there. It is very satisfying to have something turn out as well or better then it was in your head.
I finally got some of the photos off the of camera! Here are some of the things I have been working on:
The Sidelines Top saga continues, I am working on the front and am at the decreases for the waist. Now that I can work the cable pattern by site rather then having to check each row of the pattern it should go a little faster.
This is a hat I impetuously made two weeks ago when a colorway of Noro jumped off the shelf at the yarn store into my hands, I swear it is not my fault! I had to put a flower on it because Will wanted to wear it and I knew I would never get it back if that happend.
This is the Silk Garden Lattice Edge Scarf I have been working on, I think it is almost ready for the other side of treble lattice, then I’ll block it and put some fringe on it. Normally I am not big on fringe but this scarf seems to want some.
This is the landscape of a new scarf I started this week, it is the brown Jacobs Wool I got on shearing day at Meridian Jacobs Farm. The pattern is just simple moss stitch, the yarn is so dark it is hard to see any pattern in it but I wanted it to have some texture. This yarn is a dream to knit with, so soft and very bouncy. I am going to have to pay the farm another visit for some more.
I know it is a bit ADD but I can’t seem to keep to just one project at a time so I have pretty much given up on trying to.
So do you remember that yummy looking yak and merino roving that I got at Color from A Verb for Keeping Warm? Well I have been busy on the wheel lately and it is now a lovely fingering/lace weight yarn.

I also finally got the last bit of the Plumber plyed and am now trying to decide what to spin next out of the stash. While the spinning bug has been great, the Sidlelines Top kind of got put on well, the sideline for a bit but I am determind to get back to it tonight as the spinning urg seems to be wanning a little.
I have also been working on another Noro scarf, just something for mindless craft moments, like on the drive to SoCal and breaks at work when I can’t get enough of a patterned something done. This one is in Silk Garden and is just single crochet with a treble crochet lattice edge.
