Hello! Bright and perky yes I am ................ That's the great thing about blogging, you can pretend to be cheery and chipper, when actually, you might be sitting in your chair at your computer feeling bloated, unproductive, miserable, and lots of other negative feelings, and noone will ever know!
Actually, I'm feeling absolutely fine. In percentage terms, my mood is 95% sunny, which isn't bad is it?
But I have a distinct lack of things to show you today, because lately I've been burying myself in work and not doing my blogging job. Last weekend was quite a busy one , and going out is time consuming.
When it's washed and dried and pressed and preened I shall reveal it to you.
I have tried it on, and the good news is that it fits like a glove, because I did have doubts about it fitting me. I have to admit, I expected a disaster, and was very pleasantly surprised with how it turned out.
That's the absurd thing about knitting garments isn't it? You often don't know if something is going to fit until the end. Crazy!
I haven't done any more sewing in the last week, but I have started a new knitting project. I've embarked on knitting Ysolda Teague's cardigan pattern "Coraline". You can find it on Ravelry here.
I had some beautiful DK Alpaca yarn in my stash, and was hunting for a good pattern. When I saw how many people had knitted this pattern, and how good it looked on everyone who has made it, I knew it must be a winner. Have a look at all the 691 (so far) Coraline cardigans that have been knitted and displayed on Ravelry, they are lovely, and inspiring. It's not often you get a pattern that suits everyone.
I'm not knitting mine in just the one colour, as you can see in these photos, I'll show you more another time.
And before I love you and leave you, a quick check on my mood percentage............... 98%.
You see, that's what blogging can do, lift your spirits, I was 95% at the beginning of this post!
See you on Friday. Vanessa xxx
