In other News, my daughter will be participating in Lehman College's IDSA Fashion Show on April 30th. I can't wait to see her strut her stuff, along with the other young ladies... here is a snippet of the crew. All of the young ladies pictured are college students... putting their best foot forward. You Go Girls!!!! Also, one fourth of the profits will be donated to charity to help in the research of cancer. I'm so proud of my daughter in that she has had to travel nearly 2 hrs each way for 4 days a week to make rehearsals, on top of attending classes.... whew!
I received numerous emails on Lila regarding the zipper and wanted to share with you a close-up of the sweater on the wrong side. You will notice white strips of bias tape, which I used as a stabilizer and also as a guide for placing the zipper. I used iron-on hem tape to affix the bias tape to the sweater and then baste stitched the zipper onto the sweater, only to realize I purchased a close-end zipper, and needed a jacket zipper instead. Refusing to go back to the fabric store I searched my stash and found a black jacket zipper, which was too long and tweaked the length for the sweater. So I removed the wrong zipper and attempted to remove the bias tape and quickly realized it was not feasible and proceeded with using the jacket zipper (hence the sloppy alignment). Once all was in position, I sewed the jacket zipper in place with my sewing machine. I must say I learned a valuable lesson working with bias tape and zippers... and look forward to creating more projects using zippers, but will definitely have all the right paraphernalia before going full speed ahead...lol.
Crochet Today (Feb/March 07) issue has a beautiful Vest on the cover... Savvy Sweater Vest. Totally diggin it and thinking I must add to my To Do List.... have some Aunt Lydia's size 10 crochet thread in black and white and... twisted up several strands with my new toy...hehe.. and thinking it would be perfect for this project. OmGoodness.... this tank is totally awesome... its an advertisement pic for Nashua Handknits, featured in Interweave Crochet (Spring 07) issue. I recently received my 100% silk lace weight yarn, called tapestry green, I've twisted up several strands and contemplating if it would work for this project... so I need to continue twisting up the rest of the yarn and do some sketching to figure out how to work up this project.
Thursday, I finished the last of the yarn for Cora... and ventured out to find another skein... no luck... so for now its on hold...
while in search for more yarn for Cora I purchased a few balls of lime colored yarn to mix with my recently received yarn from Mimi Crochet Stuff to do a bikini set for my niece...
and I also purchased more fabric and easy New Look patterns...
