A beret to match the cowl in the glorious Debbie Bliss Maya yarn. I used the same pattern as Amy's beret with a few fiddles - 6.5mm needles and a few less increases and a little I-chord top. I like it and haven't taken it or the cowl off since they came off the needles. It's COLD!
I finished Amy's feather and fan mohair cowl, but I can't get it off her long enough to show you the stitches. Like I said, it is COLD here.
Finally made the zip pouch to carry nappies and wipes.It was a huge challenge to cut into the fabric that gorgeous Ellen sent to me from Japan a while back. I have stared at it and fingered it for such a long time but since I don't believe in leaving something so lovely in the cupboard, snip it up I did.This way I get to see it pretty much everyday. Sigh. I'm rather fond of the spotty inside too. And pleased to use up a zip from my op shop odd zip haul (20 zips for $1!). It is the perfect colour for the job.
On the home front our property increasingly resembles a tip, and the interior is headed the same way. The entire contents of our bathroom now share the living room and kitchen in one great big junk heap covered in dust. What a delight.
I am almost getting to breaking point. Not quite, but I see it approaching in the not too distant future. Look out!
But focusing on the positive, the radially sawn weatherboards have arrived (oh looky here it's a TREE...) which is exciting and fascinating. Can't wait to see what happens when we top and tail the log and it all comes apart like so much Terry's chocolate orange.
Oh and the roof is going on as we speak. Loudly.
And because I agreed to get older, I got this (thanks D!) which is allowing me to look at a few nice things up close and personal. Sorry, out of time!
