I can't believe it's been almost two weeks! I have returned from the Windy City one apartment richer and quite a bit of money poorer. I found us a wonderful one bedroom apartment with wood floors and a bathroom covered in vintage tile. I couldn't be happier. No more Holly Hobbie home for me. At least not for a while. Now, of course, I have to find myself a job. We'll deal with that when the time comes - I still have a semester of teaching to finish and a replacement to train at the women's shelter.
My knitting and I haven't been hanging out much together, although we do have a date for this evening. So, I'm sorry to not have an update on the asymmetrical sweater for you. I do have some treats, though, because the sewing machine and I have been tight. We've been making stuff like this:
This will soon be part of a larger quilt. Or maybe a pillow. We'll see.
And a friend came back from Graceland with these goodies.
What are your thoughts regarding the future of this fabric? At first I was thinking: apron! Then I thought it would be too busy and campy. Then I thought: pyjamas! This was followed by the realization that there wasn't enough fabric. Pillows are definitely out, I think. Cat bed? Pot holders? Suggestions please!
P.S. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. The digital camera got drenched in Chicago and hasn't yet recovered.
