I finished the knitting on my Euroflax Lily shell this evening, and also bound off the shoulder seams. I followed their instructions, and they have you do it so the seam ridge is on the right side. After I did them, I just looked and looked at them while hunting the right size crochet hook (3mm) to do the picot edging, and finally decided I didn't like the ridge there, so I got one seam ripped out and back on the needles. I'll do the other one tomorrow and maybe get them back together the way I want them. I don't think the crochet edging around the neckline and armholes will take long. I already like the way it looks even in its unfinished state, so that's a good sign. Here's a link to more info from my first Lily post.
I ordered more yarn from Elann Saturday and got it today. It's a baby alpaca/merino blend DK weight in a dark spruce color. I'm planning a cabled cardigan, fairly classic in style and fit. I bought a Pingouin pattern book with the yarn which has a nice pattern. I also ordered a year's worth of sample skeins. I think it will be fun to try them, and apparently I'm back into knitting in a bigger way than I'd thought, so why not?
Sue from Sewzine alerted me to a great site for vintage patterns that are available in multiple sizes. It's called Decades of Style Pattern Co. I ordered the 1930sKitchenette Pajamas which I think are adorable, and will be wonderful for after-dinner wearing. Should be very comfortable, and yet practical.
I also ordered the Flapper Apron, a very cute bias cut style.
They also offer a wonderful wrap blouse from the 1950's that I'm thinking about quite seriously.
