Last night I pulled out the tracing paper and got to work. Yeeeesh. I've traced a lot of patterns before but I had forgotten about this book - rivalled only be the Drape Drape series I think. I'm all for saving a tree but would it really hurt to put in just one more page so the patterns aren't so hidden!!
I really must also invest in a Seam Allowance Guide!
I'd run out of wool for my dodgy lo-fi blanket, so luckily I was in the mood for some tracing in front of the tv while I watched the Olympics and the last two episodes of Mildred Pierce. Has anyone seen this by the way and if so what did you think?
The other part of my obsession with this pattern is that I saw this jersey (very soft and very thin - not sure what type it is) at A2F a couple of weeks ago and then got it into my head that this would be the perfect material for this cardigan. I raced in on the way to the swimming pool (basically leaving the car running with the boys in it) this afternoon and grabbed some. It is now in the wash and while I'm not as obsessive about it now as I was this morning, I still think it is going to be a winner. It is a bizarre cross between animal print (can you see that?) and preppy!
