What I loved:
Why is it that as soon as Tasha makes something I have to have it in my wardrobe? This Agnes top in jade is absolutely lovely, and although I don’t think it will suit me as well as it suits Tasha, I still definitely need to make one myself.
I love all the versions of By Hand London’s Sarah shirt, but this one by The Wardrobe Project is one of my favourites. As one of my goals this year was to learn how to sew shirts, I’m hoping I’ll make one before 2016 is up.
These Monkey and Nutkin socks on Tin Can Knits are so fun looking, and I’m itching to make some with some Stroll Hand Painted Sock Yarn that’s burning a hole in my stash. Both these patterns look perfect for variegated yarn and I might just have to cast one on when I finish my Broken Seed Stitch Socks.
What I listened to:
Reply All is one of my new favourite podcasts, with this episode being one of my favourite podcast episodes ever. It’s about a mysterious figure in New York, I don’t want to say more, but it does contain selfie rat.
Srsly Podcast is the pop culture podcast from The NewStatesman, a political and culture magazine. It comes out every week and always cheers me up, and recommends lots of new films/TV shows and books. I don’t think I can chose just one episode, although their Friends special is one of their best.
What I’m planning:
Yep, I’m still planning a Moneta dress, the correct fabric has arrived and I’ve pre-washed it, so now I just have to get over my reluctance to stick together a 63 page pdf.
At the moment I don’t have any other sewing planned, but for Christmas I got a gift voucher from my partner for our local fabric shop, so I might spend it on some knit fabric and make a t-shirt or sweatshirt.
I splurged on some yarn yesterday, so I’ve decided to make this shawl in cotton, it’ll be perfect for summer and will improve my confidence with lace knitting.
