Ribbie LoveI didn't sleep in ribbie last night, but I was tempted- so comfy! :) I think this will be a perfect weekend cardi... but it's respectible enough to be my backup at work for days when the temperature tends towards freezing (I'm still convinced that office temperatures are controlled by malicious gremlins who adjust according to what I wear... heavy sweater? crank up that heat! thin blouse? oooo, time for AC!!)
I think I sewed the first half of the zipper at least 5 times before I got it to lie flat. Luckily, I figured out what I did, and was able to get the second half without too much trouble. I ended up folding the zipper facings in, and sewing the zipper to the doubled fabric. It still wants to curl a bit, but I think it'll settle down- I'm trying to remember to zip it up when I'm not wearing it! In hindsight, I would have made the sleeves about an inch or so longer (I was trying to compensate for shrinkage, and they came out fine, but I like my sleeves LONG whenever possible!) and possibly brought the collar up a few more inches... although truth be told, I actually like the wider neck... I think it adds to the whole comfy thing. Plus, isn't that just an excuse to wear a fabulous scarf if my neck is getting chilly?
Oh, and ribbie received the final seal of approval... Cricket hopped on my chest for some serious snuggles (involving much nuzzling and purring), and seemed to think ribbie was just fine. :)
