SIP- Spin in Public 2012

We had a SIP this year at Form
I´m giving you a link to the english page. It´s in the middle of Malmö and really beautiful and inspirational This is my rock, it´s a Kromski Symphony and I have to admit I have not used it a lot the last year but after the SIP I´m at it again
This is me, Anna-Karin ( who tought me to spin)and Åsa, we are trying to get Åsas rock to spin, it´s an old rock that I think was her grandmothers, and it still worked
I´m wearing a vest from Zizzi with the back in croched and the front in fake fur and some trim and buttons, I had plans for making myself a fake fur vest but could not find the proper fur so Then I saw this one i bought it.
Look at my hair, this is how curly it is now after chemo! Oh and I almost forgot...The chairs are called "spin" too

One size fits all

I´ve not been sewing so much lately, and I have spent a lot of thought on why. One reason is that I can´t find the fabric I want so lately I started to buy clothes on thriftstores that have the potencial amount of fabric to be reused into something else and the proper content of natural fibers. It´s so hard to find rayon and cottons in nice pattern and weights. I´m also loosing weight and are going through my wardrobe and making different piles of stuff I want to keep and might use tha fabric, things that are to small now but will work in a couple of weeks etc. I´m also putting away summer clothes but since I´m going to Spain in a couple of weeks I have to save what I will wear then... I´ve been knitting a little. This cardigan from Drops has a beatiful kind of celtic braid in front,
I decided to do the borders mirror imagswise and missed
So using an old Yarnharlot tip I redid it
and now it´s perfect or at least as perfect it can gets pre soaking, I´m currently on the second sleeve, the yarn is a OOS superwash yarn bought from a colleage´s wife who used to have a yarnstore and still has some stock left
Missan has some favourite spots, one is behind my back when I sit on the couch, the white stuff is a crochet bedcover, croched in one piece with a swan pattern by my paternal grandma and used on my bed growing up.

October breast cancer month

So it´s time for the annual pink ribbon campaign. This year the ribbon is designed by Dagmar A swedish three sister act named after their paternal grandma. They do a lot of knits and have some interesting cuts on their clothes
