A little bit of this, a spot of that…

The boning is going into my Gertie Bombshell Dress…

And my knitted Christmas presents are coming along nicely. This is the Mustardseed Scarf from Jane Brocket’s ‘The Gentle Art of Knitting‘. It’s being made for my brother-in-law. (I am fully confident he doesn’t read this blog!) I’m making this because I’m so touched that a scarf I knitted for him a couple of Christmases ago out of the most god awful cheap, scratchy wool is still being loyally worn. Bless! I decided he deserved a new scarf in some nice, merino wool.

If you want to start dropping hints about Christmas presents of your own, I spotted these beautiful pin cushions in Loop. They were also featured in issue 5 of Mollie Makes:

The pin cushions are by Bristol-based Alice Rose Lewis.

    Thanks for reminding me about the Gentle knitting book. I had completely forgotten I had it when making my Christmas gift list. I think the slouchy hat will be much better suited to my brother than the pattern I had originally planned to use ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love the scarf too, such a pretty pattern.

    The scarf is beautiful – in a manly sort of way! It’s the combination of the steel grey against the teal I think. And the stitch pattern is gorgeous – I’m glad it’ll be going to an appreciative home!

  3. Can’t wait to see your finished bombshell! Your going to have to knit a shrug to go with it (yes I’m obsessed with them) so not to hide the lovely neckline. Oh and treat yourself to some killer heel and clutch bag. Then all that will be left if your lovely boyfriend to take you out somewhere rather flash to show you and the out fit off ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a great scarf pattern and the colour combination is very appealing. Good luck with the rest of the bombshell. I’m sure I speak for us all – lol! – when I say we’re eager to see the finished item.

  5. Lovely photos that are craft in motion. And at firsT I thought that you were very brave posing a sweet pastry tart next to your carefully boned bombshell!
