Hello...er... spring?!

More than a month and a half has gone by since my last entry, and I had sincerely thought at the time that any serious knits were to be packed and put away until October or so. But so far there hasn't been such a thing as warm spring weather, and any rotation in my wardrobe has remained nothing more than wishful thinking. So I thought I'd pop in and say hi, I'm still around, been busy with stuff and not much of it was vintage (apart form some exciting fresh additions to my etsy shop). There was work, spring cleaning,  kitchen and bathroom painting, diy, guests, more guests, yet my wool addiction hasn't dwindled, oh no, I somehow managed to acquire a certain quantity of lovely new yarn (if mother could only keep up with my need for comfort!)

Here is a cardigan she's made for me not long ago out of Debbie Bliss Donegal tweed aran (shades 16 and 26), this was the first chance I had to take some pics of it, albeit worn in a rather different fashion than designed for...You wouldn't think looking at these images, but this open front sweater  was inspired by 1920s to early 1930s fashions. I'll do another entry to persuade you of that :), in the meantime here is how I look like with straight, unstyled hair, and the kind of stuff I wear on a regular basis when not dressed in vintage or trying to emulate a specific period. Until next time, all the best to you and hope you have a fabulous spring!
