I told you I've been making!



Why hello.

Up there, that's a hoodie that I recently finished for my friend h~'s lovely little one. It is from knitting pure and simple (ravelry link) and in Paton's feathersoft 8ply. It's coming toward Winter here and by then A will be needing larger warm things so I knit it for a 12 month old.

and next up; I made two of these, one for a newborn, one for a one year old. These are a trial run. I'm going to get my baby friends to be guinea pigs for Davy Jones' Overlocker pirate-baby range. The fabric was purchased at The Cloth Shop on a random, spontaneous visit a fortnight ago.



and these last, very cute newborn leg-warmers. These knit up in next to no time in Cleckheaton maby merino on 3.75mm dpns.




As well as this, I'm attempting to get my brother photographed in his shorts and I'll see if I can find someone to photograph me in my new jeans. Hooray for new jeans! In making the pattern, I took the leg measurements from my current jeans which are starting to wear thin.

Hmmm, what else has been happening? I'm looking forward to a trip to Iran in May and before that an Easter escape to Vanuatu. Learning Spanish. Loving up my beautiful kitty and talking to the Lady in my local petshop about developing a range of covers for pet beds.

Also, do you know how to make curtains? I was thinking of buying a treat for my new house, it is almost perfect except it has hideous plastic venetians which depress me.
I think I should commission you...vintage fabric...or something else cool...I am a hopeless sewer!

Hooray!

and yes, I make curtains. We could look on ebay for fabric or ask the old men at the Job Warehouse.

okay!
I really desire some of Nicola Cerini's, but too exy.
