Envelope

I didn't have an envelope to fit my printable Amazon gift card, so I had to make one. I needed it heavy enough for the print to be invisible. The chopsticks work great to smooth seams cleanly and to keep me from gluing the sides closed.

Men's Pullover

This pullover has a lot of details that are not standard in men's crew neck, off the rack (at least not that I've seen) although I haven't seen a Lands End catalog lately. I don't know what to call the pleat in the front shoulder. Pintuck? You can't see it in this picture, but the sleeves stay loose into a ribbed cuff. The edge of the cuff is finished in contrasting color, yellow I think. Source NHK Sports Japan olympic report. Arigato!

Brooks Farm Yarn

This a sample of Solo Silk, 50/50 wool silk, included in my DFW Fiber Fest tote bag. I can't wait to try it with something.
