Well that was a bit of a strange week. Although, we have obviously taught through lockdowns before and had lessons through Zoom, I have never done it from home when everyone else is in. It went very well and I was 'present' for almost all of my lessons. And, of course, Daniel didn't have Covid!
It is the 2nd of May, and so, the 2nd day of Me Made May! I posted my introduction to MMM here and my preparations and day one here
So today, I have dug out another make that I haven't worn in a while.
This is Rugged coat by Joji Locatelli and I knit it in Knit Picks City tweed to make it very affordable.
But this is a Year of Projects post, so what have I been working on this week?
Well I finished Olive! I started off having a nightmare with the press studs (after my nightmare with putting panels around the wrong way)!
However, once I figured it out, it was great fun. To the point that I may never do buttons on a sewn garment again!
This is a pattern in the latest Tilly and the Buttons book.
I have also made progress on the Antiquity blouse.
I am knitting this in Eden Cottage Keld fingering. It is beautiful - cropped - but I knew that when I started and I should be able to wear it with a high waisted skirt, which was always the idea.
I have also worked a bit on my socks when I needed something mindless!
We have a nice long weekend here in the UK, so I have some pork in the slow cooker and a chocolate marmalade loaf in the kitchen calling my name!!
