This is Botany Bay - a deconstructed triangular shawl pattern I designed for my visit to @skeinsisters last weekend. . It took 2 x 2 skeins of @quinceandco Sparrow in Birch and Lunar and it is now available on Ravelry (link in my profile) . This is a summer wrap designed to drape rather than wrap to shade rather than snuggle. . . . . . . . . #botanybayshawl #quinceandcosparrow #skeinsisters #knitting #summerknitting #neverenoughshawls #instaknit #igknitters #knittersofinstagram…
Honestly I did try today to wear this shawl. I rocked it for a bit. But then I had stuff to do stuff like making beds and cleaning out manky fridges and mopping floors. And this just sort of happened. It was a bit scratchy too .
This dress is an oldie - sewn last century I made it when I was living in an isolated town in northern WA. Long sleeves in 40 degree heat - not sure what I was thinking then. Every time I wear this dress I do think I should find the pattern and make an updated version - it's super simple but has some lovely features. That's #memademay for today. #memademay16 #memademay2016 #handmade #mindfulcrafting #wearit #sewing #
I discovered on the weekend at @skeinsisters that this green looks good on EVERYONE! I also need to grade and release this pattern. . And its totes too hot to have this on for more than two seconds today. Summer is blessing us with 30 degree weather . Yarn is a discontinued @dreamincoloryarn - story of my life! . . . . . . . #knittersofinstagram #skeinsisters #cardiganwithnoname #knitting #knittersofig #greenyarnforthewin #dreamincolour

When the light's too bright the model would rather be in the ocean and you're trying to pair shots with ones taken in Spring when the grass was green and the girl had long hair. Somehow you've just got to make it work.
This story scarf is inspired by C. Lewis’s classic tale ‘The Magician’s Nephew’. This is the story that began the Narnia Chronicles, and whilst less known than ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, for me, it is just as good.
