In the fine tradition detailed here, a recent project that I'm rather pleased with was to turn a very very long fine knit cardigan that I never wore into two useful pieces of clothing. Of course, the vintage doilie bits got involved as well.
The skirt I am particularly pleased with; it hangs very nicely and is quite flattering. I simply rolled and hand-stitched the raw top edge before threading elastic through and tying in a knot which I tucked into the tube. Hand-stitching seemed the way to go to avoid any trouble with stretching.

A lovely coffee with lovely Sarah in lovely Browns, whilst rain-dodging and thinking about actually getting stuff done... What does the weekend hold in store for you?

Goodness, the weekend went fast! I spent all week saying to myself 'don't worry, I'll tidy up and wash things at the weekend', but I spose they can wait til the next one now...
PS. Isn't bare feet on warm floorboards one of the most pleasing things in the world?
