Moving AND Crafting

Seed Stitch Scarf
I started this during my trip, just finally finished it. It ended up being a little short, so I wasn't sure what to do with it until I thought of pinning it up with a brooch. I think I've had this yarn since I was teaching myself to knit, back when I thought one ball of yarn could make a whole project. It looks like alpaca.
And yes, I got that shirt at the Bob Dylan show last night. It was great.

I started this before my trip, hoping to wear it in Paris. Obviously, didn't finish it in time. But I did finish it before packing up the sewing stuff for the move. I bought this fabric at Joann about two years ago and forgot I had it. I don't use Vogue patterns that often, this pattern said it was Average ("moins facile" in French, haha!), but it was a little hard. But it looks good in the end.

And we all know how easy it is to get a photo with Buck... If you notice the first picture, as soon as I let go, he walks away.

I like the back of this dress, especially. It gathers under the yoke, if you can make it out.

Now it's almost moving time, so I'm on crafting hiatus.
