Continuing my pledge to avoid buying ready-made clothes, I need to audit my wardrobe for the coming season. Last year I made a batch of tweedy skirts which I still love and are still going strong. But I never did get round to making some trousers. Wide-legged tweedy trousers - mmmm! Warm and stylish, they would allow me to wear handknitted socks to work! And today I won a suitable pattern at ebay - woo hoo! I like the skirts too...
I might rustle up another tweedy skirt or two, as I have the fabric in the stash already.
And perhaps a jacket? I wonder about a raw-edged collar - is that maybe a bit dated now? Hmmm.
But I also need some woollies. I have a kilo of pine green aran-weight in the stash which was destined to become a Drops jacket - what am I waiting for?!
And I need fingerless gloves for the office - typing is getting quite painful already.
And of course there is Eastlake, waiting in the wings.
Tsk! Get yourself organised girl!
The knitting queue (all from stash!):
Present for nice neighbour's baby - due in November
