All the items I ordered last week have arrived. Let's start with the yarn:
The picture doesn't do this yarn justice. It is really a rose color and just perfect. I also ordered two pair of circular needles. I should have ordered the double-needles also but thought that I could get nice needles locally for less money. I was wrong. The pattern requires 6" needles in two sizes of the double points. I found 7" needles. What I don't know is if it matters that the DP needles are longer. Any one know?
Next is the Curved Black & White Jersey with the white lining fabric:
I love this fabric and hope that I get the wrap dress made that this fabric was intended for. I will be cutting the two fabrics out together and treating them as one. The stretch will be based off of the white knit lining.
The final item is the Black/White Abstract double knit:
I do like this print but I'm disappointed at the weight. The description called it medium weight but I wouldn't call it that. I will still make a jacket from this fabric but it will definitely be a light weight jacket. I do need to locate some trim. If anyone know where I can get a black knit fold over trim, please let me know. I suppose a fold over elastic would work, too.
In looking at my fabrics, I wish now that they were coordinating. I guess that means I need to check the stash for a black fabric that is suitable for jacket, skirt, and/or pants. I hope I find something there.
