It was time for a quick and easy project after my last garment. This turtleneck was almost completed before I started the vow renewal project so all I really had to do was hem it to finish it. This is an old Simplicity pattern that I've probably had for 20 years or more - no number on it though - it was just a handout that I picked up at Cloth World years ago and they have long since gone out of business.
This green and blue basketweave knit I picked up at Mill End Fabrics in Reno, Nevada a few weeks ago. It has a really nice feel to it.
Side view. Nothing too special here.
The pattern includes little cuffs for the sleeve bottoms.
Back view - again - nothing special here.
Ah hah - but the hem is special! Hemmed on my new coverstitch machine. Just look at how pretty that looks! I'm really liking the Janome CoverPro 1000 CPX machine. I'm getting a better feel for it and could actually do a straight hem this time!
That's it for today. Just a quick post for this one as it's nothing too special.
Adding this yardage to the stashbustin total:
Total for this turtleneck = 1.5 yards
Total YTD = 75.625
Hope your sewing it going good!
