Catalogue of Sorts

What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike

Wednesday, With Coffee

It’s a total comfort work from home day, but it’s chilly, so I’m layered in wool: smartwool socks (got big fleece slipper socks on over them), smartwool leggings, icebreaker maya skirt, icebreaker camisole, a recycled merino sweater from the Gap (which I bought on sale for $12–I should have bought several, even if all the other colors were Not Me), my ibex handwarmers. Boutros is in my lap and I have coffee.

Pretty snug. Winter came hard on the heels of the far edge of Sandy, here in Chicago.

The Eva Dress popped up in my Pinterest again today. I keep meaning to make this one. I don’t have a serger, but I successfully made some stretch knit stuff earlier in the year, including a cowl top. I haven’t attempted it yet because I want a nice merino knit to use for it and have no idea where to find such fabric! Along with my perpetually disorganized closet, I have a perpetually disorganized office/sewing room/sunroom. I ought take better care or–and make better use of–the things I am fortunate to have.
