Actually, it's just a few odds and ends that I wanted to show you. Like they crop up from time to time.
Like finally taking the time to get some order into my sewing nook, which included finally de-linting and oiling my machine (it runs so much more smoothly now)...
I also got on a bit of a shopping spree on e*bay for the plaid dress you can see above. It's a Colette Hawthorn, which features and almost-circle skirt, so I finally went on the lookout for some things I'd been meaning to acquire for a while: a rolled hem foot and a skirt marker.
I've also been doing some knitting. Since I seem to lose about one mitten a year, I made these Leaving Cuffs for myself.
I also bought some yarn for a Christmas gift and while I was at the shop, treated myself to a Zauberball.
Percy shawl, and I'm hoping to actually finish it before Christmas... At least this time around, I'm using fingering weight yarn instead of lace yarn, which is probably the only reason I've made it past the set-up chart. Actually, by now I've almost finished chart A! ;) The other reason could be that the alpaca silk mix is just so nice to the touch...
I'll leave you with an outfit pic from last weekend's visit home. It features my new Espresso leggings. :) Look, Winnie, print-mixing! Though rather of the conservative variety... ;)
