As promised, I found the time tonight to lay out the coat squares as per the pattern. The two odd ones will be underarm gussets.
These were just laid down any old how – I’m sure I will move them around a few times until I feel the balance is right, though I don’t want to overthink it too much. I had to stand on the coffee table to get them all in and of course the lighting leaves a lot to be desired.
This project has made a serious dent in my Stylecraft Special Aran stash.
Work has been busy the last couple of days but that has been offset by a fun meal out with seven other women last night. We went to the Gratitude Cafe, which is vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and has raw and cooked options, some without onions and garlic. Basically anyone can eat there!
I had the potato skins with cashew cheeze followed by some coconut banana cream pie. It was accompanied by a cup of real hot chocolate. Real food rocks!
