I finally finished my Dexter cardigan. I really love it. The yarn is a blend of merino, silk, and cashmere. Can you say ohhh so soft? That it is. I used a soft blue gray yarn with the intent of it going with a particular dress that I am going to sew just as soon as I decide on the shape.
I'll try to get a good pic of it but the weather has been dreary so I couldn't get it so far.
Now to figure out what will be my next sweater. I really need some dressy cardigans for this winter but I think I have waited too long to get more than maybe one more done. Stay tuned.

I've been in the mood to sew here recently. So I have been being creative with my sewing machine as well as with my knitting needles.
At Christmas I made scarves for several of my family from those fuzzy throws then embroidered their initial on them. They were a success (for the most part).
Now I am making some pillowcases. I got new sheets and they only had 2 pillowcases and I really need four for my bed so when I saw this tutorial Kelby sews pillowcases I decided to give them a try. The tutorial is really easy to follow and the cases were super simple to make. She has lots of other things on there that I also want to give a try to.
