9 am knitting lab.

9 am knitting lab.

I’ve never been so relieved for a week to end.  Did I mention that this week was Spring Break?

Honestly though, I think I need a week long break, from Spring Break.

I spent the whole entire week at school, except for Friday which I spent at my internship (the knitlab was closed anyhow).  The above photo is from Thursday morning… a little after 9am.  This was the first morning of the week that I got there right at 9 only to find out (through various responses to frantic text messages) that the lab was actually opening at 10 am this fine morning.  Fancy that!  I had plenty of handwork to get done, luckily, and an extra hour of sleep would simply be a luxury at this point.  Regardless, I managed to accomplish a hell of a lot this week… here’s a glance at some of my seams and finishing… (click the image to see a better quality view on my Flickr, then click “all sizes”).

(This is a bit of a humorous one as this is pretty much as far as I’ve gotten with my Cotton Inc. garment which is to be displayed on the dress form on Wednesday as well.  HA, is what I say).

Below is a video of where I was with my garment on Thursday afternoon.  Since then, I’ve completed almost all of my seams.  I still have to hand sew-in the hem and sew in the vinyl.  But the end is certainly in sight!!

And this is my dear friend Danielle B, showing us how we use the linking machine to sew together seams.  Most people choose to do this step by hand because the linker is in high demand.

    Dude, I’m nowhere near done with my Cotton Inc. either. I’m glad I’m not the only one with “a bit” of work ahead.

    “Sleep”? What’s that?

  3. Yissel says:

    You know? I can’t get over how beautiful the color of your yarn is. The color adds so much to the garment.
