First off, welcome Freak Girl! And second I'm a lazy cow.
Dammit, I've got three handy-dandy new patterns that I should have posted oh, maybe a month ago but I've been too damned lazy to write the fool things up. That would involve getting a sheet of graph paper from waaay across the room and using a pencil.
I've also been sucked into a computer game. They should put a warning on the box: May Cause Addicitve Behavior. I go to work for eight hours, then come home and swear I'm only having a little taste of Arcanum and I'm only going to play for an hour, but nooooo, I look at the clock and it's usually close to midnight and I still haven't made dinner. I don't even want to alk about what happens on weekends. I used to do this with The Sims but I deleted that to make room for another game that was so dull I don't even remember the title.
I've gotten a tad disgusted with the game since I'm now stuck in a tunnel and keep getting killed by giant glowing spiders so I've picked up my knitting again.
Here's the right leg of a 1940's French Knickers pattern sent to me by Black Crow in my last PRGE box. I've been using some unlabelled rayon in a strange old-timey pinkish grey (not hot pink like the photo), I figured I could always dye them black or burgundy. They're a test pair. I've got a couple balls of black silk I pillaged from a thrift store sweater and I had cast that on but the lace pattern was so hard to see that I wound up frogging it. Plus it was that kinda yarn that has loose strands so if you weren't paying very close attention you get all these little loose loops all over. Feh. I might knit a second pair in the silk but without the lace.
I dug through my sewing patterns this wekend and found a couple of undies patterns I want to try. 1950's French Knickers, 1920's tap panties, and a fairly voluminous 1920's "dance set".
