I took some Chunky green alpaca yarn with me and whipped up another version of the head bands I've been knitting recently. It came in very handy as I couldn't find my ear muffs while I was packing so at least I had something to keep my ears warm.
I've been working on more things to sell at the craft fair. I was very pleased with this crocheted rainbow scarf that I made last week. It was lots of fun to play with all the colours and what can I say, I'm a sucker for rainbows. The finished product turned out to be over 8' long!
I visited the button shop Funky Poppy on the Barbican this weekend and picked up some lovely buttons that I'm looking forward to playing with. I used the last of the left over merino yarn from my jacket to make a hat with a love anchor button accent.
The close up shows the true colour of the yarn and I think the pink and yellow really pop.
On a side note, something wonderful happened while I was out with the ladies this weekend. We were shopping at an amazing vintage clothing place on the Barbican and we were fortunate enough to be in the presence of Marilyn Monroe's original Black swimming costume. It was truly amazing and I thought you may enjoy the pictures. The first is of the inside of the costume and says 20th CF (century fox) Marilyn Monroe. I love all the boning detail around the bust...
Hope you enjoyed this weeks rant. TTFN
