Firstly, thank you to everybody who left such thoughtful comments on my last post! So encouraging to receive such kind, informative and helpful feedback; it really is appreciated. 🙂
Quiet Sunday car parks are designed specifically for blog photos right? Again my mum and I nipped into town to run a few errands, and for a little shopping experiment – more on that later. It would seem that I have no common sense whatsoever, as I believed that this sliver of a dress, loose cardigan and barely there fishnet tights would shield me from the wind. Oh how wrong I was! Although my neck was perfectly toasty, thanks to my handknit scarf (Haven by Kim Hargreaves). I am glad that I knit so many accessories as an 11 year old 😉 I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to show this camera bag on here! I’ve been using this Porteen Gear bag for a few years, and I still love the classy-but-practical leopard print design. These handmade leather/fabric camera bags have three compartments inside, and available from Etsy.
Fishnet tights outline legs in black, which I think is really flattering!
Counting down the days ’til half term now! Physics coursework was ticked off the list this week, so only textiles left now. With creative subjects I find it really difficult to just ‘get it done’; I’m such a perfectionist that I can spend hours doing a few sketches! Are you a speedy sketcher or do you deliberate over shades of blue pencil crayons like me?

I love that lipstick! It looks so beautiful with your hair colour too.

I’m totally on the same page regarding creative work. It has to exactly perfect, which understandably takes forever.
Your shirtdress is pretty. You’re so lovely in it.

It really is so difficult to decide when you’ve done enough! Creative work is never finished. Thanks for commenting!

Its really fun and special to model the things you made & made for you ‘back then’. I love, love, love that scarf ! If there’s anything on my pattern list you’d like to knit, I will send it gratis to you ! 🙂

I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing them! I’d love to see the ruffles scarf knit up! Same offer to you too – If you’d like any of my patterns then let me know!

You mean *moi’s* ruffle scarf thing? Well, ha ha, I never really wrote a pattern for it, just wrote down what I did afterwards on this page http://jenjoycedesign.wordpress.com/my-patterns/ruffles-scarf-free-on-site-how-to-instructions/
However, I’ll happily gift you through Ravelry any pattern I have actually written out official. 😉 lol.
Designers often don’t really have times to knit other designers’ patterns, sad but true, isn’t it? :)xx
