There’s a brand new ravelry group for the Herbivore Knits patterns, where you can share projects, suggestions or ask questions in the forum. At the moment I’m looking like Johnny-no-mates, so if you’ve made anything from one of my patterns, or intend to, please head over there and join up!
Three years ago when my little nephew was just a wee thing, I made him a log cabin blankie. Now, this boy has a gentleman’s appreciation for the fibre arts, and the blankie was beloved.
Meanwhile, earlier this year my brother became engaged and I had grand plans to whip up he and his betrothed an heirloom. Well, the engagement party date came around, I caved and bought some homemade and off-the-rack homewares, and the potential-heirloom-blankie sat unfinished.
Then just recently I returned from holiday to find that an incident with a lamp had melted a big messy hole in the nephew’s original acrylic blankie. His fourth birthday is next month, and while it’s no heirloom I think providing warmth & comfort for a little loved one is a pretty noble goal for this piece of fabric.
The blue cardi. Two sleeves down, and I’m almost to the waist on the body (working bottom-up). (Dancing music helps.)
I’m about half way through The Big Sleep, with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to look forward to.
Vietnamese spring rolls with enoki mushrooms, daikon radish, cucumber, red capsicum, avocado, basil & mint, and peanut sauce inside a rice paper wrapper. Watched that tofu guru ep over and over until I was confident I knew how to do the wrapping part. Turns out it’s just like rolling something up in Glad wrap.
How was your week?
