I figured out how to use my sewing machine! Because all I need is another hobby and the ability to find vintage fabric on ebay....
She also has a bunch of accessories to jazz it up, but I figured you all only care (assuming you do, even) about the sewing project part. With the whole shebang going on, she looks pretty groovy. And most importantly, she's feeling pretty groovy.
Otherwise, back to knitting at home again. I have one finished sock from the Cape, a cocktail and a new project in the works. The cocktail is a vodka and apricot -mango spritzer and the new project is the Ella Rae cardigan pictured below. I am going to leave off the bobbles and use some vintage buttons on it. (since I have how many now??) The yarn is the Louisa Harding Nautical Cotton, which is exactly on gauge.
But Ravelry - I got in past the waiting list, thanks to a friend who sent me the invite - and gotta say, I'm hooked. what a great site. Set up amazingly to browse for ideas and patterns and see what others have done. I'm only scratching the surface so far, but am really intrigued.
