Pink Boot Nina Ricci

If I was one of those women whom some think are fortunate to dine out and do lunch regularly, then I'm pretty sure I'd have purchased one or some of these astonishing shoe arts by now.

What I do like even though they are totally impractical, is they capture the essence of what is coming out of shoe colleges a free thinking no boundries mind. So what if you can't walk half a mile in them.

Halterneck mad

I'm going crazy for halternecks at the moment.

Well this design is one of my originals from way back when I first started knitting, but I loves it so much, I've made a new one.

Testing Testing, 1, 2 ,3

This morning, Etsy was having maintenance, so what a perfect time for me to get my sewing machine out, and do some basic sewing, I'd had an idea for a halterneck top, and thought I'd give it a practice run with some nice jersey material, Altough the final piece will be made from African print cotton in red. (yummy)

This took me around 20 minutes to make, no pattern, just cut, sew, stick, and a few prayers. I wish I could knit that fast.

Now for the real thing. (check back soon)

It's naughty, but it was nice.

So faced with a beautiful sunny morning, BF is sleeping, No garden, and just sat here knitting. that scaffolding outside my window was looking decidedly tempting. So I''m afraid I had to do it.

Yes I set up some cushions, a blanket/sleeping bag thing, and plonked myself and my knitting out on the scaffold at 9am this morning. and wouldn't you know I'm still here to tell the tale.

And now I've got me a little suntan. :-)
