Not too much actual knitting to share for Yarn Along this week.  I’m still working on Ella’s afghan.  I’m also working a bit on my gingerbread house.  It’s handy for car travelling.  It’s at that funny gauge that hurts my wrist so I can’t work on them for too long.

I have been working on some other things.

My Christmas dress (please ignore the breakfast dishes).  The skirt has 3 tiers.

I love jumpers!  The material is almost a black toile on the blue background.  I need to make an under-dress (pettiblouse as they call it).

Here’s a dress I designed.  I call it my ‘Schrodinger‘s’ dress -Big Bang fans will know what I mean.  I’ve taken a long time to finish this dress.  Because I’m worried it won’t look nice.  So if I don’t finish it, it will both look great and look bad.  But once I finish it…

I know, I know, I’ve got the wrong bra on.  I forgot I was taking pictures today.  Obviously I won’t be wearing a dark coloured bra in future.

Yarn Along this week shows little actual knitting progress:

Outside and here’s the inside:

And I made a circular needle case:

I’m not sure how many needles will fit in this case.  I may have to make one for each needle length -just to keep them organized better.

Ella is back to asking for Little Girls Bible Storybook for Mothers and Daughters for her bed time story.  It’s got nice short little bible stories, perfect for bedtime.

Sharing this also over at Deborah Jean’s Sewing Party.

I’ve got a new smocked sundress up at Bella Ella Creations.  It’s got a 21 inch chest, but smocking is very forgiving.

For any customers in Renfrew County, I offer a $10 discount if they pick it up here at the farm.  It saves me postage and handling charges, which I’m happy to pass on to you my customers.
