winter crafting

now that it's the coldest coldest weather (toe-freezing overnight temperatures of 3.2 and 2.3 deg on the weekend*), i'm making summery tops and dresses.

it's a bit upside down: my friend c is sensibly knitting a cardi and she wonders why i wait until summer to knit chunky wool scarves. c suggested wearing layers of all sorts underneath my new tops (you could wear a singlet! no, a skivvy!). i wonder if i could bribe c to make me a cardi to wear =p

but doncha think this print calls out for a spring/picnicy/bbq type top?

this is another DS quilt collection fabric from spotty, with the wiksten tova top pattern. i adjusted the seams on the side and sleeves, but other than that, it's a good fit!

grabbed a lovely brushed cotton bargain yesterday, so might make a tova dress version while i've got a bit of time between deadlines (sorry c!)

*secretly enjoying the palindromic temps!
