so this was MMM13
i can't believe it's nearly June again! where did may go? and what about MeMadeMay?
My self set challenge - to wear something selfmade 4 days/week did not work out all that great. It turns out i do have a lot of knit items, but not so many garments. And if its warm in Vienna - as it should be in May, handknits often are too warm. The last couple of weeks it has been cold again, autumn like, and it turns out most of my selfmade garments are skirts...
Bottom line, my memade wardrobe needs to be enlarged!
Therefore i will keep trying to incorporate selfmade items into my wardrobe on a more regular basis and also will post here every now and then about it!
day 29 - my clapotis
voila, my Clapotis, made out of 2 full skeins of Zauberwolle! i remember knitting something like forever (actually only a month or so) on this skein and using a gadzillion of stitchmarkers to keep track of the dropped stitches...
But at the end it is a great scarf/shawl for spring and autumn! oh, and the pattern, by Kate Gilbert, was published in Knitty and is free!
day 30to honor my first memademay, i decided today to try on a very old selfmade item - corduroy pants. i had a favorite pair of pants and when they finally were worn out, i took them apart and traced the pieces and made myself a new pair. unfortunately it has been several years now and i am not sure about the fit anymore... i probably should just donate them to charity aka humana, but that also seems somehow strange... maybe i should try and let them out a bit - in true mend and make do spirit...
oh, and also starring in this pic are superold handknit socks - they are just great to wear around the house on such a rainy and sad day...
so, this was it, bye bye may,
i am looking forward to next year's MeMadeMay project!
