No, I havent forgotten how to knit...
Thats the back, all done! I'm 5 inches up on the front too.
But who knows how long it will take me now - I was house sitting for a friend (for 3 weeks), it was an hours train travel each way, thats two hours of knitting time, per day!
I've been offline a little bit due to my Nan's ill-health - she's got lung cancer and not much time left so I flew down to see her in Geelong last weekend.
My Nan rocks. She has the most hilarious and cheeky sense of humour, and I know where my shoe-addiction came from. Her taste in clothing was always a bit out there, but I wish she kept some of her fabulous old stuff - the photos are fantastic!
She gifted me all her vintage costume jewellery though, can't wait to wear it when I next go out.
On the sewing front, I made a (highly) wearable muslin of Butterick 5250 - highwaisted Hollywood pants, View A. (This pattern cost $2, new, on Ebay!)
