Another chilly week. But not quite as bad as last week! It did however start with a scarf.
This is knitted from Lincraft Prism and is 70% wool and 30% soysilk. The pattern is from Knitted Shawls, Stoles and Scarves by Nancie Wiseman and it can be knitted either as a shawl (my MIL has a lovely pink and purple one) or a scarf.
I had to get my favorite glass brooch in somewhere this month!
Then it was a wet day and I had to catch the tram to work, which means walking through a park (which is pretty at sunrise, but gives you wet feet), and so I wore waterproof shoes and carried office shoes in the felted bag I made for Me-Made-May.
This brooch, made some years ago, sits on the lapel of a designer denim blazer that I bought in an op shop about the same time that I made the brooch.
A cold Sunday meant hand knitted socks. These are Jaywalkers knitted in a mixture of wool and cotton.
I've worn very little of my own jewellery this month, mostly because I have had the perfect opportunity to wear the handknits!! But I did wear these green and blue coralled earrings.
And finally, as Arctic blasts assailed Melbourne, I wore my Fetchings, knitted from the same Prism yarn as the scarf at the start of this post.
I haven't been doing My Creative Spaces for the last couple of weeks, because of the planning and photographing, etc, of Me-Made-June. but I am going to this week, because I am participating in a KAL (Knit-along, for those who are wondering) and I want to show some progress pictures, and it's pretty much what I have been working on all week.
