Green Sleeves

I was away on Whidbey Island this weekend for a friend's wedding, but I managed to get a lot of knitting done on the cardigan sleeves. I hope that I can get them finished this week, so I can start assembling the sweater.

In other crafty news, last week I started some fashion design classes at Portland Community College, which are part of a fashion design certificate program. The two classes that I am taking this term are Survey of Fashion and Apparel Construction. The first class looks at the history of fashion, as well as marketing and trends. Homework for the second class was to create some handstitching samples of different stitches, like basting and hemming stitches. I'm hoping the classes will improve my sewing skills!
