somehow the weekends do fly by, don't they? Despite beeing out of house most of yesterday and cleaning the rest of the day and this morning ( we do the "big" housecleaning every saturday morning but since my in-laws as well as my parents came over for tea (in our case coffee) we did some extra cleaning ) I managed to make some progress.
- My ufo-jacket from march just needs its lining handsewn to the hem and some closure, but I'll need your help with that because I hate the double row of buttons the pattern suggests but I don't have enough fabric for a sash.
- I finished the second burda shirt, so 1.25 meter stash less. I think before I dive in and start my Viva scandinavia dress ( which is a summer dress and it's pretty cold here already, so I do have a bit before I'll be able to wear it) I need to destash a bit more, so I'll be making the patterncompany jacket I have already made once another time before starting on the dress and maybe another PJ...

- Knittingwise the weekend was mixed. Yes I did make some progress on the simple knitted bodice but this is the 3rd time I started the lace part. Somehow I was loosing stitches and the lace looked all wrong. Now I do have stitchmarkers after every 7th stitch! It does look like a gypsy top with all the stuff dangling and the cats went nuts went I tried this on. (btw. Heiko had to kill another mouse today that Cookie gave us as a gift, halfdead... this time it was a grown mouse! Did you know that a mouse can have 2000 kids/grandkids/greatgrandkids.... in its life?) so this it my simple knitted bodice as far as I got this weekend. I don't think about getting the stitches back onto the needle right now!
I did get some nice mail this weekend including some knitting mags and the next parcel from my sp11 pal but that will be in another posting!
