Work in Progress Wednesday

The next set of sleeves has been lengthened.

(Action shot)

And I spent quite a bit of time examining the dress bag that dancer uses for her dress. Her mom made the bag herself. Without a pattern. I have a bazillion photos of it now, along with notes and measurements.

Here it is with Thalia's dress in it:

I'm inspired. But it will involve shopping for fabric, batting, long zippers, velcro, a dowel, plastic, and webbing for straps.

In the meantime, I'm still knitting the Basic Chic Hoodie. I have it back to the spot it was before I ripped it out -- ready to divide the body from the sleeves:

Check out those stitch markers! The pumpkins I was wanting!

Only 3 of them, though. I need to go get another ring from Hobby Lobby, as I broke one while twisting the wire pin around it. The pumpkin itself was unscathed, thankfully.

You too can join WIP Wednesday over at The Place of H. It's a great way to track your progress on all of those projects you've got simmering.

Those stitch markers are so cute!

I didn't know you were still reading my blog... it's been a little sparse in the comment department lately. Ahem.

I have a private homeschool blog and would love to have you be a part of it since our girls are close in age. Please feel free to email me if you are interested!

Someday I'll tell the story about the boy at the well. It's a good one.

I love the color of the hoodie. Very autumn-my. :)
