oh my goth

I can't seem to shake the goth shawlette obsession that has overtaken me recently. Case in point:


Posh Yarn Diana in "Cad"


Damson by Ysolda

Only problem is in order to get the Posh Yarn I have to be up at 4am on Monday morning. This bodes ill for me, considering I normally struggle to be up at 8am to go to work.

I'M STILL ALIVE (but I have The Clap)

So it's blindingly obvious I am a terrible blogger. Perhaps now I am 99% confident that no-one bothers to check this site anymore, I feel I am able to condense 6 months worth of knitting news into one post and then start afresh.

Too often in the past I'd knit something really nice in a colour I'd NEVER buy as a completed garment. I feel I'm finally getting better at choosing the right tones to suit my personal style.

Exhibit A: The Clap

Exhibit B: The Emo Ishbel

Sundara Yarn certainly seemed to be the flavour of the past 6 months for me. For the upcoming spring/summer 2010 season I have two knits planned using the beautiful Habu Textiles range:

- With the New Cowl Neckline using Kuzaki Zome silk in a champagne colour
- Whisper Cardigan using black Tsumugi silk
