I used The Knittery Cashmerino Sock, cant remember the colourway though. The pattern was OK, had to do some mods for my own taste but otherwise really happy them.

Second - Spats!

These were a bit of a bastard to make, but oh so fun to wear! Its inspired me to make a fetishy-circus performer outfit for Inquisition. The buttons on the side are decorative, and they lace up down the back - made out of PVC if anyone needs to know.

Baby Kimono!

Also for my sister - she doesnt know if the spawn is a boy or a girl. Its the pattern from Habitual - best pattern ever!

Latest Anti-Craft is up!

Sometimes AntiCraft is a bit hit and miss, but I think this issue is pretty awesome.
So much I want to make:
Gothic Lolita Apron!
Very appropriate embroidery!
Skull embroidery pincushion!

The pincushion idea is fabulous - I always loose my sewing/darning needles.

Hanky Panky

Tonight is the Femme Guild Hanky Panky Party at the Red Rattler (raising awareness of the Hanky Code amongst other things).

My contribution to the Guild was to sew hankies for sale - just basic little numbers in the most (mainstream) popular colours to sell and raise money.
Unfortunately, a friend who is performing needed 30 hankies for her show - in a string, to pull out of... well, nevermind. So every night (and some mornings) this week i've been sewing my fingers to the bone - but i'm done! Exhausted, but done.

My next mission is to nail down 100% what I want to wear tonight.
This might sound self-centred: since I always try and make a big effort people have come to expect it of me. Don't get me wrong - i love spectacle abd i love dressing up, but its stressful! Trying to think of a new outfit everytime, without having to buy a lot of new clothes is down right difficult sometimes.

And then sometimes you stumble on a site that makes it look so easy - DestroyX. Ouch! So much awesome hotness! Inspiration overload!
