I still have half a sock and half a mitt to knit before the Big Day. That sounds achievable!
And this weekend?
|My pheasant-print Airelle|
I am absolutely itching to sew another Airelle Blouse. This week, I was delighted to help Eleonore (the designer) by proof-reading the English version of the pattern (translated by the lovely Anna)… so you can be assured that those gorgeous Deer & Doe designs will soon be available for all you English-speaking stitchers – woo hoo!
My close study of the instruction booklet has inspired me to make my second blouse straightaway. I wore my pheasant Viyella Airelle twice this week and was so pleased with it: warm enough, smart enough, quirky enough – yay!
That should be my last new project this year (note the word: “should”). After that, I really want to devote myself to finishing all the Works In Progress and making a proper plan for 2013 instead of whim-sying around like a demented butterfly.
Yeah. Believe that and you’ll believe anything!
