In an inadvertant effort to produce the most random post ever, I give you the below collage:
The upper left is one of a pair of completed Summer of Socks 2011, Medallion Lace in the Crapshoot colorway from Periwinkle Sheep. I thought I’d use the heel flap called for in the pattern and while it’s fine, I still like my short row heel and toes better. Live and learn.
Upper right is the line drawing of Burda Style 11-2008-116 coat that I’ve begun tracing off for use for the Raspberry Coat. I thought I’d shorten it about 18″ for a mid thigh length. I am currently 1/3 of the way through tracing off the pattern from the most irritating Burda pattern sheet ever. Hey Burda, I’d pay $20/year more if you put LESS stuff on each pattern sheet. You are a bunch of crazy bitches over there in Germany.
And the giant picture of my big toe is my totally unprofessional pedicure (self administered) using the crackle nail polish I’d been hankering after. I used Sally Hansen Brisk Blue with Ink Splatter Crackle over top. Love it!
