Coming up

The blog has taken a backseat so far this year, mainly because I’ve been feeling a bit exhausted and lacking in creativity. We’ve really not done any decorating in the new house. I haven’t knitted anything. I haven’t sewn anything. I’ve been doing lots of reading (there’s a post in there somewhere) and cooking instead.P1040317.JPG

At last, though, I’ve been turning my thoughts to what I can make. I’ve picked out my next knitting project & a few things to sew, and started pondering a few special presents.

The first project will hopefully be the most straightforward one, as I’m using the pattern for the sleeveless 60s dress I blogged about last year. This gorgeous fabric is an old pair of curtains & is viscose. My birthday’s on Sunday, so if all goes to plan I will be wearing this to dinner. The bodice is nearly finished already.

And on the knitting front, I’m going to make this very special Blue Willow jumper. Isn’t it amazing? This is going to be a long term project, I think!

  1. Haven’t knitted anything?! I have no idea what I’d do with my hands without a few projects on the go! I love the ones you’ve picked, that sweater looks amazing and the dress is so pretty 🙂

    1. I know, it’s really strange! I think I’ve been too busy reading. Also, I have been doing a lot of cooking/baking recently which has taken up all my time. I’m planning lots of projects in my head, though.
