Mini Doctors: Peter Capaldi and War Doctor

Peter Capaldi and the War Doctor have finally joined their other mini incarnations!

Thanks to those who wrote in and asked about when these two Doctors would be available, and to those who have provided tips and uploaded their projects to Ravelry over the last few years. I hope you enjoy making these latest two Doctors.

Selbu Modern - marine heather and mist

Latest creation:

Pattern: Selbu Modern by Kate Gagnon Osborn in Knit Picks Palette (marine heather and mist).

Spent a night in the Dandenongs for my birthday this week. The last of the splendid red leaves from a few weeks ago had turned brown, but still some lovely yellow highlights.

Pinterest - dress sewing inspiration

When looking on as a non-logged in user, Pinterest has always frustrated me. Its gated preview (where you can temptingly see a board for a second, then are prompted to log in), and its dubious attribution, made me hesitate to join up. However I've finally given in, and have enjoyed gathering together a set of dresses to inspire sewing ideas.

It's certainly a useful tool for visually grouping inspiration, and storing associated links.

Now I just need to find some sewing patterns that match up with all my pictures... then actually sew things...

Jigsaw socks

With my newest design project going along fairly well, this week I've taken a break and started some simple socks with some Heirloom Jigsaw yarn gifted to me by @pohmieathome ^_^
Colour 75 has long stretches of bright pink with dashes of purple - which I didn't feel went well with the other colours - so I am removing the pink sections as I go. I quite like the remaining combination - it seems beach-y.
