Yesterday we went to a clothing show and I bought a couple of cute printed dresses. This is one of them, from a Canadian company called Passenger Pigeon. As is probably obvious from the print they make eco-friendly clothing, my dress is made from organic soy and organic cotton. The torso’s a little long, but it will be easy to alter – although when I’ll get around to that is another matter.
Today we hung out, taking photos and Laura taught me how to spin! It’s been a long time since I learnt something that I had no idea how to do so that was interesting, but eventually I got the spindle a little under control.
It’s messy, but it’s definitely yarn.
We also blocked the cardigan I’ve been knitting while I’ve been here and had a little photo shoot. This is basically a re-working of my cloud bolero design into a neater, simpler pattern that will be much more fun to knit. More on that later.
I bought the wonderful vintage pearl buttons on ebay ages ago, I’ve just been waiting for the perfect garment to add them to. I might be a little less precious about the special buttons in my teeny button collection now though, since it’s grown so much.
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
