You know when you’re convinced you’ve already done something, but haven’t? Er, yes, well that’s why this Wednesday WIP blog post is so late…
So, what have I been up to over the past week? Quite a lot, although I still have the attention span of a butterfly. No more tiny stockings or mittens, but I did fall in love with a pattern for a mug sweater and have been trying to re-write that so that I’m happier with the finished look. Thus far I’ve added a little scoop neck (so that you can drink without getting the little jumper wet), but that’s about it. I’ll blog about that properly once I’ve finished mucking about with the pattern!
Oh, I did also stumble across a new knitting stitch, which of course I had to try.
My mother got back from her holiday three weeks ago, and although she brought back lots of pretty things for me I’ve only just got round to sorting through them…
…which did, at least, lead to some creativity in the studio.
While we’re on the subject of books, I’ve also finally perfected the art of making memo pads (translation: I finally found the right sort of adhesive to hold the pages together). It might seem like a small thing to most people, but it pleases me greatly as it means I can now use up offcuts in a fairly easy way.
Speaking of offcuts, and using things up, I’ve continued sorting through the depths of my studio and found some lovely (but seriously mangled!) children’s books which I will turn into bunting very soon.
Yeah, they don’t look like much in that photo, but the colour plates are beautiful! Lastly, but by no means least, I helped make a sari blouse for a friend.
Which is another thing that deserves a blog entry all of its own, so I will come back to it later this week!
