oh those bitchin' stitchers
Here we have the gorgeous Irene patiently casting off her sideways scarf... a little longer than you thought darling?? you can see the finished item here. She is a natural to photograph, very cleverly masking her desire to scream and strangle someone with said scarf (also, i really really love that top).
Othlon disagreeing with a partial ball of sock yarn that Monica brought for the swap basket...
the ball i scored... Monica, its one thing for me to give away my crappy beginners spinning, but this is waaaaaaaaaaaay too pretty to give away. i love it to death and keep it near me wherever i am at home but.. arg. you have to come here one day and show me how you use your wheel because you clearly know something i dont :p Here Monica and Taphophile ponder the dark side (btw i have a pattern for one of these...). ladies... one day its a cute disappearing string bag and then before you know it you have a king sized bed spread made out of recycled plastic bags. be warned.
and here is newbie Lisa chatting with Camille. We like you Lisa! Welcome!!!
Oh, and just to prove im not totally lazy heres the back piece of my cardigan. she's reclining on horace to remind me that if i'm not careful i will totally forget how to do anything..
I know that every photo will show a different colour for this cardi.. its like uluru, every single ligting set up makes it look different. its a bit redder.. less purple looking.. basically its just delicious.
i have been spending today sewing myself a couple of dresses... but have just gotten over it. they are this pattern, and im making one of each skirt type at the same time.. and they are really cute and all but the bust section is far too long (my nipples are not that close to my belly-button honest!) so rather than do an easy quick-fix... i've given up. and in a few minutes i will probably pack the whole shmozzle up and go listen to king lear on record (see... im not sooo naughty taking a day off uni).
PS in response to yesterday... its called list 1 because i live with more than one crazy person. im leaving myseld room to winge about my dad and my brother... and my boss and my uni and my boyfriend too.
