My latest love….Scarfy, as affectionately called by Sheshe – Director and Designer of her very own brandnew fashion label Mardle. New love is sometimes fleeting though, and in this case, well it’s over for me as Scarfy is claimed by his new mistress. I was the hired hand to bring this hefty number to life….and as it is with the chain of creation there was a link before me…that being the pattern, designed by Drops of Garnstudio.
Sheshe, the next link in the chain has marvelous plans for Scarfy – you’ll have to check her site to see what happens as she takes Scarfy to the experimental stage. All I know is she mentioned something about adding fabric and Scarfy’s final destination being in her winter Menswear collection.
If you follow my blog you’ll have noticed that I missed a Post last week. The blame for that lies fair and square with my computer – our household had SERIOUS issues last week with cyberspace…..all sorted now (I hope).
Those who are fans of Raewyn’s lace and shawl knitting will be pleased to know she’s started another mystery shawl journey. Raewyn put off opening her much awaited parcel of yarn so she could indulge all of us at iKnit with the grand opening. It was magic, gorgeous colours happening here and the beads…ooh la la…..
2nd week on Raewyn’s mystery shawl….looking fabulous !!
Kirsty ripping it up. Fabulous yarn in the process of evolution into probably another take on a scarf. At times frustrating and sometimes it feels pointless, in the end ripping it up is the best thing to do and start over.
Lyndsay is back on her quilt block this week to allow her Tennis Elbow some respite. No tennis involved here just the clacking of pins.
If you’re wondering what Wendy’s been up to there’ll probably be a pic of her FO next time – there’s been a lot of sewing up going on.
My fair isle cardy is finished….yay!!! I’ve just got the buttons to sew on and it’s done so I’ll post a pic next time. Now I’m tossing up what to do next…the ming or the possum…….
….Don’t stay at home and knit alone…..if you want to meet up with a friendly knitting group in Lyall Bay, Wellington, check out my Contact tab for details and come along…..new knitters are always welcome 🙂
