My 100th post!
(and thankfully, the 21stC internet connection speed has been restored!)
Lots have been happening around here since I last posted.
Christmas tree went up. Lily did it all herself, again. Great job, kiddo!
Rusted Root was finished.
I love the finished Rusted Root (although I cringe at the name every time). I modified the leaf lace panel from the original pattern and used a branching lace lace instead, suits me much better. I also didn't pick up and knit the ribbing at the neckline - I like how the stocking stitch rolls slightly and the neckline was exactly where I wanted it as it was, so I left well enough alone.
Being a wool/cotton blend, however, it is a little warm for even a Melbourne summer, so I think it will be tucked away 'til Autumn...
...and I may have a new job to start the new year, shhh! More will be known soon, but suffice to say, 9 years in retail hell is enough!
all in all, it's been a pretty exciting week. Great way to start December, really!
