Tea for Two Almost Done!

Well it’s been a long ride but as you can see I’m in the final stretch for Tea for Two:

As I metioned in my last post, I had intended to  use my knitting machine for the skirt, but the machine that I had wasn’t the right gauge.  So, I cast on my #2 circulars and trudged along.  Fortunately, I was able to locate a used knitting machine and ribber attachment in the right gauge and got them for a good price, along with some other goodies!  I will have it for the next skirt because I certainly don’t want to handknit another one of these babies, not anytime soon anyhow!

This outfit has definitely kept me occupied, but  there wasn’t any interesting progress to show.  I figured that posting pictures of my skirt in progress would be like posting pictures of a cake in various stages of baking.  Who cares, right?  In any case, my sincere apologies for my silence in the blogosphere.  Hopefully this update will make up for it.

The only bits I have left to do are the right sleeve, the casing for elastic in the skirt, the crocheted trim around the bottom of the skirt and neckline, and sewing on the buttons.  So my next post should come a lot sooner.

I should have this done in time for autumn.  I know that it’s a springtime look but since autumn in Arizona is just like spring, it should do nicely.
