Hands off my greasy chicken wings
Look what I found at Lincraft today!! Bamboo! Well, 70% bamboo and 30% cotton, but only $3.99 for 50g! Some of the colours are scary, especially the brighter variegated ones, but in the end I chose a couple of the black as I want to eventually make a short and sweet jacket from The Happy Hooker. I'll need to get more though - 70m of yarn doesn't take you far.
Some of you asked yesterday what I was making with the fabu pink tweed. Well, here's a sneak preview on Lusty Busty Magda the Mannequin. We are still missing a stand-up collar, shortened sleeves and a hem. The button is just for show - it is supposed to go on the collar.
And lastly, because I've been feeling very wistful and sad for my Daku family (even though Susan only works 20 paces from my desk - it's not the point. I miss them), here's a photo which Helen took of George on the boat. I think there's a quilt in that.
If you want to see more Daku family photos, cleek here.
