Shawl Collar Cardigan

It's not that I haven't been sewing at all, just that I have not been very productive. I did manage to make a few Mega Card Holder Wallets for Suzanne. This sweater is from a pattern I downloaded from Paco Bean, and it's a great pattern. I eliminated the handkerchief hem, since it makes me look hobo-ish. I wasted a long time figuring out how to make a flat rolled seam with my serger because I wanted this to be reversible, but the seam was a bust. I just used the regular 4-thread serger stitch and it came out just fine. See?

Now, it's a fact that my stash blog is not accurate. I have purchased a few orders of fabric since last recording it, but I'm not going to get too excited about this accuracy thing. I still am trying to consume by sewing as much as I buy, but it's not been possible...yet. Today, I had a package of cute strips in my hands. They were 50% off!! But I put them back. I have strips that need to be used, and I will definitely try to get them consumed before buying more.
