Wow, Wednesday again, and time for our weekly nosey fest, aka What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) – if you haven’t already, and would like to join the fun, click on the link in my sidebar which will take you to our lovely hostess Julia’s blog, where you can sign up. Warning – it’s addictive!
You can read full details of this project here – I’m making a jumper from a knitted dress that I unravelled (now too small for me) – I set it aside during the summer and have recently taken it up again, and today I finished the front. Here it is laid out on my desk:
Here’s a detail of the patterned yoke.
It still looks a bit lumpy and uneven, but once it’s washed and blocked, it should be better.
Now for an annotated version of my desk this week.
At the moment I am working through a whole lot of old photos which never even made it into an album, scanning them into the computer and doing quite a lot of very necessary editing, to improve the colour balance of faded ones, cropping, straightening horizons etc. Once this is done, it will be one box down in my ARTHaven (one box down, 50,000 to go?) It’s taking me ages, but it’s also great fun because I’m reliving memories of holidays taken anything up to 40 years ago!!! There are also quite a lot of old family photos with Shoshi as a sprog etc.
The work of converting all my old cassette tapes into mp3s continues, too. If anyone has any suggestions of what to do with dozens of old cassette boxes, I’d be grateful. I am thinking maybe of knitting the actual tape – but again, any suggestions of what to make with it? I don’t think it would be very nice to wear!!
Hope you all have a happy WOYWW and a great week ahead, with lots of inspiration and creativity.
