Here's the Headline News cap from Stitch n Bitch Nation. I finished it ages ago - oops for not posting a pic! I just didn't really feel like taking a photo of myself!
In other news, my cabled hoodie is almost finished:
I have nearly finished sleeve number 2, then I just have the hood to go, and the finishing - I have to put the zip in and weave in a LOT of ends. Does anyone have any tips for sewing zips in?
I thought I might re-start my failed ballet cardigan project. You might remember I ran out of yarn and thought the collar was turning out way too long. Actually, now I think it WAS ok - but there's been another disaster! The colour I was knitting it in has now been discontinued! The yarn's only been around for a year, so it's weird they've discontinued it already. I guess I'll have to think of an alternative to the collar - maybe I'll sew some ribbon onto it or something. I don't know...
Anyway, when I was in Ballentynes trying to find the yarn for the ballet cardy, I found a new yarn.... this is the second nicest yarn I have ever found (the first being Kashmir Trendsetter, a cashmere/silk blend that my aunt bought my Nana to make a scarf with. Unfortunately Nana's almost blind - my aunt doesn't really seem to realise this - so the scarf will never be knit). I digress - introducing Naturally Me:
What better name for a luxury yarn? It's 80% merino, 20% cashmere, buttery soft and comes in gorgeous colours. I bought 6 skeins in black because I want to make a vest - will that be enough? I think I will modify the leftovers vest from knitty to have cables and to (obviously) be all one colour.
This yarn makes me feel so special. I love having nice things. I'm so glad I'm not a communist!
