Now I’m just posting bad photos to annoy Oonaballoona. Honest.
It’s not because I can’t figure out why my camera keeps not focusing correctly. Or because I don’t have the patience to take more photos.
Anyway, that’s my second version of Ottobre 5-2011 #9. As previously seen here. I extended the sleeves and added a 2” cuff. It’s super-comfortable, if nothing else. The fabric nice too, although I have not one clue where I got it. Probably either FabricMart or Emma One Sock. Or maybe Golden D’Or.
Speaking of which, The Husband and I had to go to DFW yesterday and had some time to kill. So I thought I’d swing by Golden D’Or and see what goodies I could come out with. I was expecting to spend maybe $100.
I spent $32. Including tax. It was a disappointing trip. Whoever buys their fabric must be a Spring or Autumn because I literally could not wear about 90% of the colors in that warehouse. If I wanted to look, you know, still alive. (If you’re a Spring or Autumn and you live near DFW you should head on over to Golden D’Or. Beaucoup oranges and light browns and weird yellowy greens.)
Basically I bought some black knit tulle and some white knit tulle (which is hard to buy online because you never quite know what people are calling “tulle”). That’s a nice staple for making future knit tops with mesh overlays and whatnot.
I also bought 3/4 yard of this knit:
Look familiar? I’ve been infected with Lemonade Mouth Disease. (That’s silver/grey, by the way, not green or blue. It doesn’t photograph well.)
I’m planning on making another knit top with some kind of mesh overlay on the yoke and sleeves. Of some sort. I have the tulles to do it.
-snort- get it? I “have the tulles”?
Just shoot me now.
