Summer clothes and a scarf

Working full times is HARD guys.  Who knew?  Working every week day then hanging out with Tam at the weekend has vastly cut into my faffing about time.  Knitting progress is still going steady and I'm getting loads more reading time with all the train travel, but any craft or activity that isn't do-able on public transport or in an hour after work has pretty much stopped.  It's sad.  And frustrating.  BUT... I work flexi time, which is possibly the most awesome thing ever invented.  Last week I had built up enough hours to take Wednesday off and I was so productive.  I went shopping, had fab charity shop luck and (mostly) cleared my alterations pile.  And I made two scarves!  

My fabric came from the sewing meet I attended in February - I think it originally belonged to Helen.  I spotted it in the pile of swap goodies and it reminded me of my friends scarf collection, all bright and Accessorize-y, so I took it with the idea to make her something.  There was so much of it that I managed to make myself a twin too.  I just cut the fabric in half length wise, turned the edges under and sewed along them.  I haven't given my friend her scarf yet but I wore mine all weekend, so it was a great (and free) (and quick) make!

tshirt - H&M
trousers - H&M
loafers - M&S
Here's the rest of my outfit - I strayed into H&M when I went shopping and couldn't resist buying another tshirt - their basics are my favourite right now, so slouchy and comfy, perfect for work without making me look like a total scruff.

  2. Yes it was from me. Glad you were able to use it, although I'm wondering now why I didn't just do this... :)

    1. It makes a great scarf! I don't really suit bright colours so this was a good compromise :)
