A big “Thank you” to everyone who left a comment about the I Do shrug – it made the rest of the week worthwhile (illness, idiocy, depression and self-doubt, basically!).
I’ve completed the heel gusset decreases and I’m progressing down the foot now. The initial plan for these socks (when they were going to be my mum’s) was to stop the patterning on the top of the foot because (1) it would be wasted because she rarely wears sandals and (2) the texture of the pattern might rub on the bits of her feet she can still feel. However, due to my shoddy memory, I forgot this completely and carried on my merry way.
Mucho thanks to Lou for her “Spot the Difference” competition a few weeks ago. For being one the three people to enter (aww) she gave me this deep-blue-with-flecks-of-stuff fibre to spin:
And this really fresh-looking hand-dyed cotton/elastic sock-weight yarn:
Thank you, Lou!
My first yarn:
The last time I blogged about this was in about 10 B.C., but I’ve finally finished spinning the bright pink merino I got for Christmas-before-last.
I think it would be polite to describe it as a thick ‘n’ thin fashion yarn. I’ve now got to think of somthing to do with it.
After about a year of having this fabric and pattern, I’ve finally got around to sewing up this blouse:
Oh, yeah – I haven’t finished it yet (in the above shot it’s missing sleeve seams, collar, buttonband facing, cuffs and hems), but it’s getting better!
Pop ya collar – oh, yeah, I know hip-hop! I’m down wit the hommies, I am!!
Laters y’all (or words to that effect).
