|My present from B! :D Isn't it cute?|
|My new old sewing machine!|
A much larger gift! After my grandfather died towards the end of last year, my grandmother moved in with my parents. My mum is currently clearing the house they used to live in. That was where I got my knitting yarn from, and I was also given this mid-1950s straight stitch only vintage sewing machine. I kind of love it already. It sort of works, in that everything moves as it ought to, though I haven't had a chance to get it working properly yet or oiled it or anything sensible yet. It's a Jones machine, which was a Manchester firm later bought by Brother. My grandmother was never really into sewing so it's had very little use. It weighs a TON though.
And finally, a knitting update. On the left, where I was up to the last time I posted. On the right, as far as I've gotten tonight. I've actually almost finished, and it's quite enormous, really. I've got 2 full balls of yarn and 2 three-quarter balls left, plus two very small balls I've set aside to sew the side seams. I am hoping to finish it this week :D
|Knitting comparison! It's actually straight edged on the right, it just curled under when I was taking the photo, honest.|
Next time I post, it's going to be a revisit of my radical re-imagining of my wardrobe plans.
