3 FO

The scarf for Penny

The button and paua are connected by a piece of wire to form a “cufflink” which can be worn either way to change the look of the scarf.

My sister sat down with a piece of newspaper, drafted a pattern and pulled on this jacket roughly 12 hours later. She is quite talented (and only 15!) No sketches involved!

I finally got around to making the spotty hoody I’ve had the fabric for for 6 months. It only takes a 700km car trip.

We’re back home now, cleaning the fridge and catching up on the washing. Back to uni tommorow (but not me- I have a rare day off this term, so look forward to heightened levels of crafting.)

    wow- what productivity! i love your hoody- did you make up the pattern? the neckline is so cool. and your sister is very clever indeed. i truly can’t believe that she is only 15 and designed and made that herself. and of course that scarf is beautiful! i love the heathery colours and extra pieces sewn into it- like charms!

    Exquisite – and apparently it runs in the family. Some great genetic luck you all have there. 🙂
    Looking forward to your leisurely semester…
