Is Sylvi in a box somewhere?
No, Sylvi is still waiting for her sleeves to be lined. I'm still upset with her, so I've had her in 'time out' with her nose in the corner!
Really though, I'm just procrastinating hand-sewing and 'quilting' each sleeve with the chiffon lining. I can't wear it til Fall now, so there is no hurry. I've been finishing up some Spring-Summertime cardigans for my DGD's, plus finishing up Bettna, plus I started a TWIST knitalong over at Rav.
I will finish Sylvi as soon as a Bumblebee cotton cardi is done (dry) blocking on the surface space I use for blocking. I'll have to lay out the sleeves with the lining fabric laying over top and 'free cut' the lining to size. Then comes a drizzled line of FRAYCHECK on the edges to prevent ravel, then comes the pinning, the comes the stitching along all edges plus within the field of the sleeve, like quilting. Ack.
