New Pattern finished
So I have finished the pattern for Marina - Leaves Top. You can see some pictures left. I had been trying to upload a picture to my Pattern of the Month sidebar and had been having a trouble with it. My pictures always came out stretched and unclear. I don't know why. Does any of you have any clue why this could be happening? Anyways, I managed to download one pictures, which seems to be in focus on the sidebar.
Well, to the pattern. Here are some facts about it:
This is a PATTERN for a girl's top worked in WORSTED yarn. The top can be worn by itself as a top or over a long sleeve shirt or T-shirt as a vest. You can get lots of use out of this garment. The pattern is written in wide range of sizes.
SIZES: 4 (6, 8, 10, 12) yrs.
*Chest/ Hips: 22, (24, 26, 28, 30)" / 55 (60, 65, 70, 75) cm
*Waist: 21 (23, 25, 27, 29)" / 52 (57, 62, 67, 72) cm
*Length 13 (14, 16, 17*, 18*)" / 32 (35, 40, 44, 46) cm
Shown in size 6.

Again, you can buy this pattern in my store here.
Tomorrow, I am expecting to get yarn for my new project for Vogue Knitting: therefore today I was trying to finish few things I was working on. I have finished my proposals for Knitter's magazine; only I was unable to put them into a comprehensive package to mail. Hopefully I'll be able to do it tomorrow, though I have a few errands to run.
I am hoping to go to the gym in the morning before the kids get up for school; but I am not holding my hopes too high since it's almost midnight and I am still up. Hmm, maybe I'll run on the treadmill at home (!?). We'll see. At the end of the week, my youngest daughter is going for an eye surgery, so I am feeling little uneasy about that. She had the same surgery a year and a half ago, and it was quite successful; I still have that uneasy feeling. Also, my second to oldest daughters is having a birthday party on Sunday, so it is a quite busy week for me (more stressful I guess than busy - you guys probably know what I am talking about). It's just few days away and I don't have everything ready yet.
P.S: I have also a few of tutorial pictures for the Marina - Leaves Top / Vest to make the pattern as easy as possible to follow - it's a pretty easy pattern I've got to say, no sewing required. So check in back later for that.
