Hey, I didn't miss a week this time!
I got through quite a bit this week.
I have a finished object, but first there is a backstory. I love creating my own clothes (you may have noticed!) I do sew a number of garments and I have a number of dresses, particularly that I like to wear. But... I do not enjoy making them. Ivd known this for a while, but have never really thought about it. This week I was watching some new podcasts to me - Bernadette Banner and Rachel Maksy (they both sew their own vintage clothing). It suddenly dawned on me that the reason I love knitting is because yes I love the product, but I also love the process of doing it, whereas I don't get that with sewing and therefore am not excited by new projects. Whilst watching I was struck with a sudden desire to do some hand sewing - abandoning the machine and doing it by hand. As a result I am loving it, I have finished a project (yes it took longer than doing it by machine, but I enjoyed it). I am currently in the middle of another project and planning the next few outfits. Its brilliant, I can take everything outside and stitch in the garden - it's been beautiful this week. So, here is my fo!
I actually have a second fo that is not knitting. Last Sunday, I took part in my first portrait artist of the week- live on Facebook. I drew Will Young and loved doing it but I'm not sure it looks completely like him.
My Breathing space is coming on in that I have split for the sleeves and have started the short rows where there would be striping.
And that is that, I will get round after this week's portrait! Have a good week.
