It was a beautiful day here on Saturday. The sun shone but it was still cold enough to wear my Central Park Hoodie. Yes, I wore it, it's now had its first outing. I put it on in the hope that DH would manage to take some stunning pictures of me outside in the glorious sunshine. Sadly it was not to be. Having been away from home for 6 weeks, the other jobs that had accumulated over that time took all his attention (not to mention the 3 children!) so there was no time for a relaxing photo session. I'm a pretty good photographer myself (spent 4yrs at Uni taking Media Arts), but I can't model and photograph at the same time, without the aid of a remote button and a good deal of contortion.
So I'm waiting............patiently............for him to get round to doing his Strobist thing.
In the meantime I'm cracking on with the little Matinee Jacket that I'm making. Yesterday I spent a lot of time ripping back to get my sizing right on the sleeves. I'm using an old handwritten pattern as inspiration that I wrote up back in the early '80's, but I'm making a smaller size. This is requiring some adjusting as I go. Then ofcourse, I have to knit the second sleeve exactly the same!
It's all good fun.
