This was the first time I used my french curve ruler!! Very excited about that... it was a "must have" that has been in packaging for at least a year. Ther pattern worked out great. The only adjustment I had to make was to shrink the waist up. I tend to make things bigger (I don't trust my own measurements?).
I was having issues with my serger. I re-threaded it about 4 times, adjusted tensions and was about to shove it off the table. Then I noticed one of the spools, I had put on a cap. this stupid sucker was the culprit. so upon removal of that, it stitched like a dream!
I am so happy with the fit of these. The fabric is a bit light, but they are comfortable, not threadbare and have enough stretch/give to move around in them. I think they would be great for yoga, pilates, maybe sweat would show running/etc. I will test!
I am also taking the RRCA coaching certification course this week. it is being held in conjunction with the RRCA annual convention. I am looking forward to saturday's banquet where Deena Kastor is hosting!!!
So on my race agenda is Bloomsday, Yellowstone half, a 9 mile trail run at 6500--8500 feet, Missoula half, a Ragnar relay and possibly another fall full? If not a full then another half.
Now i am going to attempt to make some more capri leggings with some lycra I found in my stash! :)
