I've been a busy little bee. A buzzing busy bee flitting around from flowers to flower, attacking people with my disproportionate ass, making said people sad and swollen.
I made our dear dear friend Vic a custom set and a hat for her daughter. I'm assuming her daughter doesn't read my blog, otherwise I'm ruining one of her Christmas presents.
Oh well. If you're Vic's daughter and you're reading this, SURPRISE!!!
AND there is no Santa Claus.
This is their order:
Speaking of Christmas, this is a new set I made up last weekend with the holidays in mind. The luxury merino wool yarn I've been using is so freaking soft and comfy it's unbelievable.
I looked pissed in the second photo. Probably thinking 'mother frugging camera...take the damn photo already'.
These are the fingerless gloves I came up with using the luxury 100% Peruvian Wool I recently got my hands in, on. ha.
It's a much more delicate yarn than I'm used to using and I love love it. The buttons are vintage from my grandmother's incredibly large stash. I bet they were from a baby's layette...or something dreamy like that.
I can make them longer or shorter too...I just thought this was a good length for a sample.
I'm working on these darling baby girl hats with handmade posey appliques if anyone is interested in a special gift for a baby girl! I snapped a quick photo of the bottom of the hat, but I don't have it finished, nor do I have a baby model. Such is life, eh?
And if anyone was interested in my dieting so far, I weighed myself yesterday after 20 days of a strict regime and I've lost 14 pounds.
Sooooo a million more to go! Yay Me!
