I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning.
This is a little test. See, now I know that if I don't improve by Monday I can function at work. Walking around holding the walls makes me look a little inebriated but might raise my street cred with the kids? Possibly less so with my colleagues though, which might be unfortunate.
While I am still upright, i shall share my knitting.
I finished the skirt... but apparently I need to wear a slip under it. Interested parties can go see it on ravelry but somehow the blog is a little too public an airing for the outline of my knickers :p
I am rather happy with it, though it has to be worn with heels or the curvy-ness looks disproportionate.
On Sunday evening I started the Bell-Sleeve jacket from Vogue Knitting Holiday 06 by Daniel Adamczyk. It calls for a 12ply but I got gauge with Cleckheaton Country 8ply and I am loving the resulting fabric. I have completed the back piece and the left front so far and all the cables and such make it an engaging knit. I LOVE the cleckheaton at this gauge, particularly post washing and blocking. It is soft and has enough drape without going floppy and the details just pop! I can see this becoming a favourite garment.
As well as vertigo I apparently have a slight case of Startitis because despite the joy of the aforementioned jacket... I just keep craving new stuff.Hence this little mess.
There has also been dyeing.
And I'll leave you with some bunnies of doom. They really are such good company. even when they are stealing my chips.Or my man...They are finding the current weather a little chilly and this sprawl was the result of my having the heater on in the office - happy bunnies! Monty's winter coat is coming through and he's like a little nugget of fur. that double chin thing? all fur.
wish i could argue the same thing for me... :p
