A. flew on Saturday to Brazil for a conference, which means I had more spare time for crafting this weekend. I didn't finish anything but got a lot of things started instead...
winded up this beautiful yarn - Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend - so soft and in the most amazing colorway (from Paula's shop). It's begging to be turned into a scarf, and I already picked a pattern.
started and frogged a Chérie Amour. I had specifically purchased the right yarn for this project (handpainted.com Merino Bulky in Wine Red), but after a couple of repeats into the body lace and I realized this would not be a garment I would use very often. So I decided to make a Buttony sweater instead, inspired by this lovely version
the Gathered Pullover is almost done ! The cabling turned out beautiful and I almost decided to leave this as a vest, but will be making a short sleeved version instead (although I think I will make another one as a vest later on)
something I rarely do (bad knitter, I know ...). I swatched for a future project, only because I've heard that Katia merino yarns tend to grow a bit after they're washed. Indeed it grew, enough to make me use a smaller needle size.
traced several sewing patterns for spring. Dresses and tops, mostly.
and on my desk right now .. a wip for the next batch of bookcovers. Not sure when the next shop update will be, since I have several wholesale orders I must get done in the next following weeks, but hopefully it will be soon. Sometimes I really wish the days were more than 24 hours long.
actually I did get something finished :) Baked these apple muffins and realized that silicone molds are so much more practical than normal ones (the gingerbread ones were a gift from M. sometime ago. Very cute, right ?)
