I didn’t get as much knitting finished as I’d hoped during my time off after Christmas but the new sewing machine certainly helped me get some projects done.
I finished this tunic pattern from the 70’s in gray corduroy. It looks medieval to me, but Mr. Isbell said that I looked like an elf from Lord of the Rings and my mother mentioned Star Wars. I think those were all compliments, though.
Here, I just look like a cat wrangler. (It’s really tricky to get a picture of gray corduroy in a dark apartment at dusk. This was the best one.)
I was able to start and almost finish another blouse, using all the seam finishes and bell and whistles on the new Bernina. This one has already prompted Mr. Isbell to say, “The collar is like a Star Trek villain’s,” but I like it. It just needs buttonholes and a hem.
I’ll try to have a (better-lit) modeled shot next week. Maybe there will be some knitting, too!
Ah, that’s right… I keep forgetting we have slightly different frames of reference when it comes to pop culture (I’m so old!). Yes, Space: 1999 is pretty weak in the whole plausibility department (it has none, actually) but it is a masterpiece of production design. A lot of the special effects still hold up today, IMO.
I love the gray tunic!!!And your hair style is fab, too!
Wow, I learn something new every day. Choice Wikipedia quote about this series: “A significant suspension of disbelief — and physics — is required for Space: 1999 to work, especially considering the plot of many of its episodes.”
It sounds cool, though
Well, as long as we seem to have a sci-fi/fantasy theme going, the picture on the pattern (in which we have bellbottom pants to go with the tunic) looks like an outfit from Space: 1999!
