With Nikki’s thesis deadline creeping up on us she is nose to the grindstone trying to get all the editing finished, requiring long days sat in front of the computer with various bits of notes spread over the bed!
But she is still managing to keep up her lettering practice and has made a lovely new spread for February in her bullet journal.
Meanwhile, Pippa has been doing some experimentation for the Latin outfit and wins the prize for the oddest shaped pattern piece!
The shape for the back of the dress has been improved upon and a new top is in progress to check just how it falls…
Sourdough baking continues apace with more sourdough and some fruit loaf (which needs a bit of modification but is a good first try)
Pippa caught up with some jet-setting friends that she hasn’t seen in ages (one not since the Carribean 5 years ago, who had just flown in from Honolulu two days before!), arriving early she got on with casting on the last panel of her blanket. Apparently, she likes this colour, as it almost perfectly matches her 1989 headband.
And oh look there is a familiar colour here in the most recent cast on. Currently being filed under ‘really didn’t need to start this’ but never the less here we have a crochet gradient shawl cast on, at least this one is more portable than my other projects. 3 full bags of different wool balls doesn’t make for a very portable project.
And Finally this arrived after a week of waiting for Amazon to decide that they actually had copies of it I finally received my copy of Melissa’s activewear book. Hopefully, this will kickstart my sew-jo for the new year as I have hardly wanted to touch a sewing machine all year…
It has been a bit of an odd week with Pippa recovering from a cold that started on Monday morning, so it hasn’t been the most productive of weeks when at the beginning of the week she didn’t even feel like picking up her knitting!
I hope everyone else has had a more productive week and haven’t succumbed to the dreaded lurgy…
