|Essie Too Too Hot|
Braziliant Collection, Summer 2011
Can you believe I'm wearing plain red nail polish?! Don't worry, I already have an idea of what I'll add on to it tomorrow!
And what's that blue yarn? Well, the other day I was looking around Ravelry and came across this:
|The Jan Sweater|
by Just Call Me Ruby
I was instantly smitten. This will be one of the patterns in the new A Stitch in Time book (volume 2), but was being offered as a free download to those who pre-ordered the book. I bought the first book, and was thinking I would forgo the second. It's quite an expensive book, and I only ever tried one pattern from it, which didn't work for me at all. I think there were a fair number of issues with the patterns, and the binding of the book wasn't the greatest quality. But apparently this book will be in hardcover, and well . . . this pattern just swayed me. And the time frame the new book encompasses is one I like better too, fashion-wise.
So, looks like Mandarine will have a little competition . . .
