Some WIPs and an FO

To give you a break from all the jumpers I’ve got some works in progress to show you! First up is Veronique from French Girl Knits. I’m knitting it out of Lorna’s Laces Helen’s Lace… it is very fine but gives a lovely drapey fabric.

It looks a bit funny at the moment – here’s how it looks in the book. I think it will look nice over jeans for a smart-casual sort of look.

Also on the needles is my Eco Wool colourwork hat. I still love the smell of this stuff! Very sheepy. The ear flaps are next on this – my favourite bit!

I finally heard back this week about my audition… Drumroll please…. I didn’t get in! I was a bit disappointed at first but now I am not very, considering how odd and bizarre the actual audition was. And, of course, now that I don’t have to move country, we’ve been able to get organised about lots of other things we were keeping on hold until we knew was was going to happen. Some small things like finally buying a wok, fixing my bicycle basket and sussing out language classes for the Autumn, and some bigger things like getting my driver’s licence, switching broadband provider, a better way to sell my patterns and thinking about training for a half marathon in March. I will apply next time round to other schools and obviously by then, I will have more experience under my belt and hopefully a few language certificates, too.

  1. The best of luck with all your new ventures. Sorry to hear that you didn’t get in. It sounds like you are going to make the most of what you can do which is a great attitude to have to life.

  2. Good luck for your future auditions. Those strange people missed a great opportunity when they selecting anyone other than you. I bet there is an even better place waiting for you, somewhere else. Love your latest creations. Earflaps are my favourite part too, though mine are no where as good as yours. 🙂

  3. Sorry you didn’t get in :/

    I really love the hat – which pattern is this and are they camels?! Or alpaca? Or llamas!
