its all getting very silly

lovely lovely lovely.... when the snowdrop cardi is finished (am out of wool, a friends giving me a lift to the wool shop on thursday after work, am hoping to finish it by the weekend) this lovely yumminess is going to begin its journey to hopefully become....
....a pair of thesem which i love to bits - no idea if i can manage to make them one way to find out - i dont have the worlds most copious amount of patience, so we will see... can imagine them being hurled half made across my teeny tiny living room on more than one occasion

plus i must make myself something along the lines of this, i love both the skirt (but longer, ballerina length) and the gorgeous shirt
..my listening choice at the moment, found her accidentaly on good old utape and am pretty hooked
shes not the worlds greatest singer, but shes got a quirkily likeable voice, shes a violin child protegy (or was, rather, shes no child), used to be violinist with courtney love (but dont let that out you off)
i think she looks stunning something along the lines of how i would LIKE to look but never have / never will! hairs the same colour though ;-)

(someone said at work yesterday that i looked very '16thy century' and someone else said i had a look of russell brand around the hair area - so i am a 16th century version of russell brand? minus the long skinny legs. and the maleness. and the beard)

hmmmm....oh, who is she? emilie autumn

i have a pattern ordered for a coat very similar to this, nice.... (where the hell do i think i am going to find the time to do all this? i dont have another holiday for 6 weeks!)

there you go, pretty things
lots of them

hope you are well, and happy, and keeping dry

potentially very very good (exciting as hell!) news on the teaching / wrriting front, watch this space

Emilie Autumn is one of my favourite artists (you know, she's touring over here at the moment?!)

I'm torn between dying my hair violet and trying to find a job in oh so conservative York.

The skirt is lovely :)

I love Emilie Autumn and adore the fingerless glove pattern. Go for it!
