I've been in more of a spinning mood over knitting mood recently. My unfinished ribby cardi is still glaring at my from the knitting basket. The B. Orange sweater is stalled because one of my handcarders broke (!) and the drum carder is buried in the cra(p)ft room. I have been doing a lot of cleaning in there recently, though. i'm very excited about the prospect of being able to actually use that space. maybe... hopefully... someday soon. *fingers crossed*
i guess this warm weather made me think of Fall! I think it looks like Candy Corn.
I seamed up the sinfully easy lavender baby sweater last night while watching Project Runway. This is the first season that i've watched it since i didn't have fancy cable before. i love it! They are all so talented. I used to make a lot of my own clothes in high school. Mostly because we were poor and i had to do it. i got pretty creative about it (or weird, depending on who you ask).
But kids are cruel bastards and i was teased for making my own clothes. For never having the namebrand styles. A particularly snobby girl once told me "i can tell you make your own clothes because you always have a matching scrunchy for every outfit". ouch. (well to a 14 yr old, that cut like a knife.) So sewing was something i became ashamed of and stopped doing the minute i got an after school job and could afford to buy the 'right clothes'. I wish i still had those skills.
