I know that my blogging has been less than regular lately but I am trying really. Part of my problem is that if I can’t easily take and transfer my pictures it all seems too hard. When I get together with all the very clever bloggers at Sew It Together this weekend, that will be one of the questions I will be asking… How do you blog really regularly? Anyway.. I have been busy and have been making some lovely things. Here is a vintage cape that I found through Ravelry. I love the construction of this and grabbed some BWM 8 ply Rustic in Damson because I had about the right amount in my stash. It has worked out really nice and quite striking. Perhaps too striking for wearing to the playground but I could see myself wearing it in the evening as something a bit different. A big thank you to iKnitt for putting it up on her blog to keep the pattern alive.
I have also been working on Boneyard – a Stephen West design which is really simple but very nice. I used the Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed DK that my sister bought me for Christmas and went up a needle size to create a very drapey shawl. This is the one I put on first thing in the morning to keep my shoulder warm now that the nights are a bit cooler her is Brissy. I love it. I decided not to block it but I have been wearing it so much, I think it might need a bit of a wash soon. Ah well.
Yep that’s me, still in my jammies. No pride really.
