I have been so busy these last few days, I have no idea how I ever did it all with a full-time job. Just today I've done and hung out three loads of washing, unpacked the dishwasher, done a party's worth of washing up, and I've only been awake for a couple of hours. I still have to sew a gazillion Blythe stockings on order, catch the bus into town, send off a dozen packages and find something fabulous for my brother's birthday and send it off as well. (His birthday is tomorrow. He doesn't live anywhere near me. I'm a bad, bad sister. The worst. Sorry D. But you will have a present to open by tea, I promise).
And I haven't mentioned the packing yet. Tomorrow afternoon I'm off to the tropical north for three days. I have to pack - nay, find - summer type clothes. I've been in jeans, long sleeves and trackies since April. No idea where my cargo pants are, or my short sleeve shirts.
Finally, because it's been gifted, here's a baby jacket I made for George's bump.
Pattern: Crocheted Baby Sweater by Beth Koski (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Paton's Jet in a gorgeous avocado colour - two balls plus a teensy bit.
Hook: 5.5 mm bamboo
Notes: Most ambigous pattern EVER but I loved making this. I think this might be my new standard pattern for winter babies.
And I'm tempted to order myself one of these. I first saw these bags at the Rose St Markets in April, and I bought myself a little shoulder bag which I adore. I've had neck pain again the past few days, and I really do believe it's caused by my heavy satchel. My back is always much better when I use a backpack. Plus these ones are so well made and so damn stylish. Shall have to save up!
Well, it's midday. Time to have some lunch and get cracking on the sewing. I'll be back next week, hopefully with an Etsy shop update I can talk about.
