But it’s not because I’ve forgotten about blogging – it’s just that I STILL haven’t finished off the shrug I’m making. I only have to do one more tiny sleeve and the ties, but I just don’t seem to be able to get it done. It’s partly just a time thing and partly because I’ve fiddled with the pattern so I keep cocking it up. That’s what happens when you try to count your stitches AND watch TV at the same time.
In the meantime, here’s a picture of me looking a bit dumpy in the dress I had made for my friend’s Hindu wedding. The tailor charged me £25 to make the dress (!), and it’s a copy of a black Roland Mouret-style dress I took in for him to copy. The material is from a silk sari and I’ve still got about 4 metres left to play with. I couldn’t really lift my arms or take very big steps in this frock, but it fitted in nicely with all the sari-fied ladies at the wedding. I just hope I didn’t actually look this dumpy in real life.
Oh, and that’s Al I’m cosying up to, in case you’re wondering. Did I mention that he’s going to have a children’s book out in May 07?!
