As much as I love knitting up the Phildar Plaisance yarn, it’s being knit up on tiny, tiny size 2 needles. This fact is brought home to me by the ache in my fingies after a few rows. I combat that by switching to a project with bigger needles and stretchier yarn. With all that, you’d think I’d have something to show youse guys. Nope. Nothing. Nada.
So instead of showing you kitty pictures (I don’t have a kitty), I’ll post a picture of my new sandals. Yup, a fabulous weekend in LA, and I show you sandals. Heck folks, they had my size (6 – I know!) in tons of styles at the Shoe Pavilion and I spent almost NO money. Of course I got three pairs – all on sale. I wear them to work so I can justify them. AND it’s going to be 90 degrees for the rest of the week. HA!
In craftier efforts, I did cut out this dress out of some yummy retro inspired chiffon that I pulled out of the garage. (I should post photos of my own personal garage craft bullpen someday, but I fear it would be embarrassing.) The sewing has not commenced as it will entail changing the 4 thread overlock to 3 thread. Pain. Major pain. But the pattern looks pretty simple, but you can never tell with bias. Make that bias chiffon. What was I thinking?!
