Talk about getting ahead of myself with this one! Wool And The Gang very kindly offered me a knit kit from their A/W collection; a girl isn’t going to let such things like the weather get between her and cute accessories, is she? Makes a nice change to be ready and (sadly) waiting for colder days to come. The kit arrived yesterday afternoon and I had the ‘Lil’ Muffler’ finished by the evening. 10 and 15mm needles felt like rolling pins and lamp posts respectively and gave me a mild arm workout, but that’s instant gratification projects for ya.
Of course I’m now eyeing up a bunch more pieces from the WATG site – couldn’t find a brand more suited to my style than one that combines hand knits and ‘fashion-y’ shapes. I do like my fiddly little fine knits – and they’re a lot easier on the wrists – but the jumpers and cardis on the website might just tempt me to the chunky side.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte lip colour in ‘Crushed Plum’.
For a quirky design I think I’ll actually get quite a lot of use out of this one. I reckon it’ll come in very handy at a freezing cold bus stop in the mornings. How would you style a muffler?
Sitting down to whip this one up was pretty relaxing after 2 days at dance summer school, which I loved every minute of but oh em gee it was tiring. Our routine was to songs from the Great Gatsby soundtrack (best movie soundtrack evaaaa) and was a Charleston/street mix-up. We’ll be performing it as part of our show next March, which will be my final show before I leave and it makes me sad just thinking about it! I’ve been at the same dance school with the same teachers since I was a 3 year old in the baby class, and now I’m one of the big girls with no-one older to copy when I forget what I’m doing. Gulp.
Anddddd I’m off to meet Alice tomorrow! Blogger besties that haven’t actually met yet so I’m way excited. 😀
