I haven't been feeling the push to sew these past few weeks. It may be due to my having a new job and less time, but I find it more likely that I'm burning down. Hence, I'm taking up a palette cleanser in the form of knitting.
I promised to make a knitted Serenity last year as part of a charity project, to be completed in June 2013. Tis high time I start this, so now is as good a time as any. I have the pattern and the needles, so now all I have to do is get the proper yarn. May my wrists not have me for this.

I noticed that when I lace up my stays, I can't fully straighten. I have to bend down to lace them up, and when they're on, I stay bent. This is probably why the top of the central line started to curve in drastically when I pinned it last time (I since took those pins out.)
I cut too much front the center fronts. It's simple enough to pin in the top and bottom, but to get the center to close at all I have to lace up drastically and tug a lot. As I don't want to fight with the finished product, I'll have to recut the fronts, and use the over trimmed bits as mockups for the zone front.
