Many weeks later, and now it is the summer holidays, the children are away, work is but a happy, middle of the night screaming memory, and we have been to Austria and back again.
There has been all sorts happening: knitting, sewing, running, cycling, drinking gin, making jam, baking bread. I contributed to the now traditional Outfit Along run by Andi Sutterland and Lauren Lladybird, which involved making a skirt and a cardigan, and a white tee-shirt.
The tee shirt is a Grainline Lark, with a lower v-neck, and cut in a smaller size, which is terrific, the skirt is a "self-drafted" one, where I had about two metres of the cherry fabric, and just wrapped it around my body, gathered the rectangles and shoved a waistband on it with a zip and a button. I'm calling that a first design, obv.
Not much to say about the cardigan, except it's my third version of the Myrna pattern, and this time has no keyhole. I altered the design to suit my personality and the v is much deeper than originally written, but it closes over my tummy and doesn't look too indecent, so I'm pleased with it. Replicating my design change on the left side was a bit challenging, mind. I wore this outfit to travel to Austria, with my red clogs, and it was very comfy and lovely. It got a bit sweaty in the cardigan in Vienna, as it was pretty hot, much hotter than here, but I wore it a few times, especially in the evening. I do really like it, and I've started yet another Myrna, this time in a lovely dark purple.
I've made some other things, and as it's the school holidays, I might even be able to blog about them. Who can say?
