Earlier this week I was all about the skirt, but now that I'm deep into the working week with three job interviews and a big trip to pack for there is not much inclination for making skirts until the weekend. I have been continuing with my habit of spending an hour in the sewing room most nights though, and I'm hoping by Friday night we'll have an Etsy shop update of these sack bags.
The crocheting of beanies for my friends continues. The olive green beanie from last week has already been given to Julie, and she is enjoying wearing it on her pre-dawn dog-walks up Mt Ainslie. Helen's orange beanie and Susan's red beanie are all finished bar the weaving in of ends and the buttons.
Anne's cinnamon one is taking me forever - I briefly got sick of making the same style of beanie and ventured into a pattern which could best be described as "adventurous". Four nights later I realised it wasn't working for me, so I've gone back to the bog standard Durango Hat, or variations of it. I also realised a couple of days ago that another friend, Barbara, was joining us in Alice, so I'm making her a hat too. And I don't have one in the Durango style of my own, and I think I need one. So that's six hats. Should make an truly excellent photo of the six of us in the desert! Lucky I love crocheting.
This time next week I'll be hiking in the desert and enjoying my own creative space with my camera. I am so excited I can hardly wait. In the meantime see Kootoyoo for more creative space fun.
