Patterns and yarns

My Noro Jacket
I have been making this jacket for a while now.
but had to take a break until I obtained the correct
yarn to complete it. It feels incredible on my skin
and I absolutely love the colour.

The yarn used for this jacket started life in another, totally inappropriate pattern, for this type of yarn, so it was frogged. I then tried it in another article, but again was the wrong pattern for the yarn. This was the third attempt, and this one is a keeper

Hello again ........ I am really giving my sewing machine a workout, now ....... I have been sewing for the last 3 days, and this is the result. I purchased 2 different Sari fabrics, from Spotlight, and this is the first Tunic top finished. My young dog, Mint, is showing her approval of the top. She can usually be found sleeping under my chair, while I am sewing
