I have been slaving in the new studio to get some workspaces defined amid the chaos. We're getting there. Enough that today's post is coming direct from my new computer station. Yay!
Also freshly produced from the studio is a pattern for the dashing out bag I made at the last craft retreat.
I had a few people request a pattern and lots of admiring compliments, and I do love it myself, so I've decided to produce my first pay to download pattern. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to part with $6 and I'll zip a copy over to you.
And as promised here is a pic of the Spun Jacket. Someone asked me if I was pleased with it and I'd have to say yes. And no. It is certainly wearable, and I do like the pattern (especially the collar) and it is exceptionally warm and cuddly. But it is rather large, rather too large. Bad gauge and a certain plus size err on the side of caution adds up to monster garment. If it stretches out much I may have to consider a light felting...
And the last of the skeins of hand dye we did the other day. These ones are a bit larger so they took longer to dry and missed out on the last photo shoot.
D is away all this week in the Darwin heat, lucky bugger, so it's me being solo mum. Which is a challenge. Being boss has some up sides - no need to negotiate, well, anything. And no dealing with someone who doesn't like pancakes for breakfast.But coinciding with the end of day light saving means 4.30am starts to each day with no relief, and a full domestic load to just keep things chugging along. A long week ahead. Expect complaint.
