Since the holiday to Kingfisher Bay Resort my sewing mojo has really flown out the window. I did get all enthused and made up a little wardrobe capsule plan to move my wardrobe into the cooler weather, but have only managed one piece from it so far (which still requires some work).
I loved my little capsule of clothes I made for the holiday and loved how everything coordinated so well together, so I do think the capsule idea is worth pursuing. I will show you my capsule plan here, but please don't expect to see all these pieces turn up any time too soon :)
What have I been doing instead of sewing... playing with yarn. During our holiday it rained a bit, so I had one afternoon and a ferry boat ride to start crocheting...
This is a Jenny King pattern - the marigold bolero and the pattern is really well written ... up until the last round. I think JK ran out of steam at the point, but I put a question up on a forum on Ravelry and got a reply the next morning from Jenny herself. You can't ask for better service than that!
I must have had a brain snap with crocheting on holidays and my motifs came out too small (when I thought I had measured them) so once again my bolero looks a little smaller than the one on the pattern, but after some steam blocking I am happy enough with the fit.
I am on ravelry as quiltsewsewsue so please friend me there if you use this great site.
Since then I have got bitten by the knitting bug. I have left many comments on people's posts about their knitting, wishing I could knit the great garments they make and have decided that now is the time. The Internet is a great resource and via YouTube and craftsy's class Knit Lab I am making progress on the knitting front also. I highly recommend this class if anyone is looking to learn to knit BTW.
Pictures of my knitting next time... Ciao!
