the weekend








My weekend was spent with my brother’s girlfriend, who is the queen of the sewing machine. She was helping me out with the lining for my Noro bag, and it gave me a chance to check out her new craft room. How awesome is that wall colour? I totally envy her space, it’s amazing.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to finish the bag because we ran out of time (I had to catch the bus back home!) but I’m confident that I’ll finish it in a couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, while I was there I worked on my Festival Shawl, and I finished it! It’s blocking in the living room as we speak, and I cannot wait to show you all :) Here’s an Instagram of last night, just before I put on the final row:


Have a great week!
