Inspired by the #make2along, I’ve completed the Flaum cardigan and Esme dress. Last week’s blizzard was the perfect time to complete the knitting on Flaum. After a good long soak and several anxious days where I thought I had stretched the sweater out beyond recognition, the cardigan dried and returned to its original shape. I’m eager to sew more patterns from Lotta Jansdotter’s book, Everyday Style, and I provide a review of the book based on my experience sewing the Esme dress and Cecelia bag. Also included are some tips for using a ricer for “mashed” potatoes.
