even to you,
until we are safely
back in the jungle.
Hat and scarf sewn particularly for Pretty Grievance’s Jungle January.
Hat pattern from Folkwear.
Since last week was an assortment of activities, I’m framing it mentally with Natalie’s Sunday Sevens.
Frame. v.t. 1. To fit or prepare and unite several parts in a regular structure or entire thing…
You know how your mind wanders whilst ironing. As I’d just been thinking “frame,” it got applied to the ironing.
The shirt’s too long to be worn as styled with the capelet at left (proportions are off), but isn’t quite so off with a solid RTW blouse instead (top, right) Yes, that yellow men’s shirt is still underneath.
Thanks to J for photos above!
And an extra photo just because I’m chuffed to have done some crocheting in colour.
Time for Sunday Sevens again, as dreamed up by Natalie of Threads and Bobbins. Why not join in? Guidelines are extremely flexible. 😉
Submitted for the WordPress Photo Challenge.
A collection of photos from the past couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy them & will click a pic to see the captions!
If you’d like to share what you’ve been up to that might not rate a full blog post, just click over to Natalie’s Sunday Sevens page.
Edited 27 July: You can also hover over each photo to view the caption, but if you’re not seeing all the words, just click a pic to go to the full screen view, then push Escape to return to this view. The glorious red
zinnia dahlia (it’s a dahlia, dah-ling ~ what can I say?) in the BBC Women’s Hour photo is from Bestie Samantha’s garden several years ago & set as my screen photo each summer.
Just in case you wondered, took some time last night to photograph whilst finishing up the hat.
Here are the directions, and both pages are available at the bottom for you to download.
If there’s anything you don’t understand, puh-lease just send me a quick request for more clarity and I’ll be glad to help.
The thing with this hat is you can use any stitch you’d like, and any yarn(s). Just make the two initial measurements.
You could even use fabric . . . what a thought!
Below is the PDF file for downloading.
I’m dedicating this post to you, Ms. V, in answer to your questions (and a couple of my own).
And I’m asking you, Lovely Readers, to help us out by sharing your experiences with circle skirts. Here are a couple of questions ~
I don’t think I’ve ever made a circle skirt. But I’ve planned one and never got to it, partly because of these questions.
Your turn, Dear Readers!
Please add to my list, either with your own experiences, or a fav tutorial you’ve used.
Thank you in advance!
And since the WordPress Photo Challenge is a “perfect fit” this week, it’s included.
