All I have to show you today is my new infinity scarf - a glorified loop and the most basic of beginner projects - but it feels so good to be sewing again. There has been a constant drip of nastiness at work, just enough to take the enjoyment out of the day and steal away any energy I had for sewing once I got home from work.
This scarf is made from some lovely 100% wool jersey from Tessuti and it had been playing on my mind. I had a specific project in mind when I bought it, but when it arrived I felt like it was too light weight. It's quite sheer. Now, it's entirely my fault, but Tessuti isn't cheap and the cost of adding two meters to the stash when I couldn't envisage a project was adding to the negativity I had going on.
When I hit on the idea of the infinity scarf it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I whipped up the scarf (perfect for the extra chill in Melbourne at the moment), cut and sewed a dress and traced off two new patterns. Mojo restored and I felt so much better heading back to work today.
