On a day when everything outside was
dank and sludge-coloured, The Girl and I settled down to some dangerous sports: my juddering sewing machine on one side of the table, and her acrylic paints on the other.
Both the painting and the silk voile slip survived. We had a lovely afternoon. She even let me borrow her Crazy Band hedgehog. Have you seen these things?
Your challenge is to find the octopus!
The sewing is going well, although I am somewhat in awe of the delicate fabric. I have a feeling this is more of a nightdress than an underskirt, we'll see. Every seam has to be stitched and folded and finished with a tiny zig zag. I feel as if I should be sewing it by hand.
And as promised - the first February sock!
The pattern is Flaming Desire by Anne Hanson (Knitspot). The yarn is Hazel Knit Artisan sock in Hi Octang.
The colour, the stitch pattern, the overall definition of those "flames"? I love it!
