おはようございます。(Good morning.)
This is my new crochet work, semi-formal cardigan.
This reminds me of my childhood, parents day.
My mother was not good at crochet, but good at knitting.
Sometimes she made her formal tops by herself.

おはようございます。(Good morning.)
This cardigan reminds me of my childhood..
Parents day.
Every mother wore such kind of graceful tops and pants or skirts...
sometimes one-piece.

THE FREAK SCENE-Rose Of Smiling Faces - 1967

I had to do a bit of dreaded clothes shopping this morning. I had literally three criteria when I started:
* available in my size (I'm not exactly thin, although I now do fit in the higher sizes of the regular lines)
* cotton or linen-based (because I hate viscose, polyester, and all these things that make me feel like I stink after two hours of wearing it)
* covering my shoulders (preferably with short sleeves).
I went to five shops. I found exactly two candidates, the first one adding a new criteria of "oh, I also want to cover my back more than that". The second one I'm not entirely sure it's not supposed to be a nightdress-type-thingy ;) (I think not. I'm not entirely sure.)

Even when I'm not feeling particularly picky (I SAID NOTHING ABOUT POCKETS), I feel like I'm tremendously failing at shopping. It probably didn't help that it's apparently the end of the sales period around here, which means: 1/ there's nothing 2/ everything's messy.

Although maybe it's my expectations that are skewed. I mean. I did find something in these criteria, so technically... not failing?

Shopping is hard, let's do math.

Another thing added to my Zibbet store!
I wish I had the time and energy to move all my stuff to this store, but it is just SO much work =(

Yearly Dyeing Event

Once a year - usually in July - our spinning group meets for an afternoon of dyeing instead of spinning.

We are doing kettle dyeing, which basically consists of big pots of hot water, usually canning pots. Then a layer of fiber is put in, color pigments are strewn over and pushed in a bit, then the next layer is added, more color ... until the pot seems reasonably full and set to simmer vor about 20 minutes.

It's not a very scientific process, you'll never quite know, what you'll get, but it's always great fun.

I wouldn't put anything in there, that is precious to me, because - you'll never know what will come out.

From left to right:
- a bag of mixed wool fibers from a leftover bag, dyed in pink, purple and blue; for my daugher
- a ball of 200 g wool, not quite sure, what breed, dyed in a variety of reds; for me
- 5 skeins of fingering weight yarn in a sock yarn blend with lurex, dyed in two shades of tael and emerald with a tiny bit of aztec gold (a burnt orange) mixed in. 3 of those are for me, 2 for my daughter, the plan is to make two matching shrugs, those oversized rectangles that are closed along the sleeves for a bit, but go from neck to bottom.
