Firstly, many thanks to the many wonderful people who left comments here or on Facebook or who sent lovely emails after my last post. I've been quite fragile lately but you've made me feel stronger and a little bit protected from the blows of future criticism.
So now, not only am I restructuring my business and lots of real-life stuff, but I can't seem to stop turning last year's knitting machine wraps into twisty-drapey winter woollies....
The few scarfy-shruggy rectangle-based things I made a little while ago got me thinking about other wrap-and-sew structures for knitted rectangles. I decided to try this idea on last year's rectangles before I knitted up any new ones.The blue one felted up nicely, but I think the red one might need a few spins in the dreaded front-loader to disguise all the little pulls and holes in the knit.
Other restructuring activities include the revamping of a few of my smaller projects: converting them into digital downloads. You can find them over at Pink Chalk Farics.Pyramid Purse, the Lavender Handbag (which also makes a cute little pincushion) and the Fabulous 50's Bib. These are all my go-to "quick gift" projects.
There is still a lot to do here... organising the path ahead while bringing the tail end of the good ship YOU SEW GIRL around. You can expect to see more revampings and restructurings.... and you can definitely expect to see more knitty wrappy things.
