What I've Been Up To

Not knitting, not much, not really.

I have been doing a rub-off of my favourite dress (which my mum made back in the 80s) so as to make a copy of it:

I got some fabric to make a new dress/copy:

I also got fabric to make a new version of the skirt from last summer:

I have been tearing apart my best-fitting trousers to re-create them:

In this fabric which, from the bolt notes, is a Jaeger remnant:

I made two Wee Bunnies for the school festival's tombola:

I have been spinning, while watching a lot of Big Brother:

I made a lazy kate out of a box and the huge needles I borrowed from Liz to make the bathmat. Hrm, I may have to figure out a different solution of she wants them back. :D

And I plied some of my singles into yarn! Very art-yarn thick and thin etc and no idea what I'm going to do with it, as I'm already spinning more evenly and thinner. Still, nice.

Plied, first spin

And finally, some knitting - baby socks with the self-striping easter-egg-dye yarn:

I love, love, LOVE the material you've chosen for the skirt! (And the material of the old skirt!)

I really admire your crafty ability and dedication!
