At the weekend I cut out a pair of black stretch denim jeans (Jalie pattern) and the muslin for the Colette Patterns Lady Grey coat. Spent the last half an hour making some adjustments to the muslin which I plan to transfer to the pattern pieces tomorrow and then cut out the shell and lining. the lapels gaped, as did the back. I have also reshaped the lapels as t=I felt they were a little big for my frame.

But the big news is my knitting. Now it has been years since I knitted anything more than a scarf or hat (and even that was a while ago!). But I am very pleased with the way that my Cadence sweater is turning out. Granted I unpicked it several times because I messed up the lace pattern. I also used language that is usually reserved for when I am on the golf course!

But the moment Kristen (from Kristen Makes and part host of the Newbie and the Knitter knit along) posted her detailed lace charts, it all fell into place and it has only taken me three weeks to finish the body and be halfway through the first sleeve. I am now ahead of the knit along, but I think I am ok!
