Rho, I believe all colours are to choose from, but the freedom of choice is important (it sounds very American-like, freedom of choice, wow! *^v^*) If I wore those clothes to my office back then, it would be regarded as highly inappropriate and I'd be perceived as a bad worker. Which is stupid! Some people like red and some like grey, and that's fine! I remember that my friend who also liked colours and patterns, had a strategy - to wear the most colourful shawls and scarves with the boring office uniforms, and I took it after her! *^v^*
A knitting question: do you know where I could get Debbie Bliss or Patons pattern books from? Maybe some online shop on Germany, UK or Scandinavia that would send it to Poland?
I'd love to get Debbie Bliss: Alpaca Silk Two and Pattons Street Smart.
FC - day 4, I'm wearing:- MM altered t-shirt (to be frank I'm running out of blouses...)
- denim skirt I made from a pair of jeans
- Scarf for Ally I knitted
- red tights and shoes
I went for a blouse hunting today but I had only one second-hand shop on my route and there weren't any good tops to buy (neither ready to wear nor for any reconstruction).
But, for a stunning price of 1,5 USD I bough two sweaters for yarn! *^v^*
First I spotted this rainbow mohair one, rather itchy but I thought about some lacy shawl? (It's not very big, so a shawlette. ^^)
Then I found this gem - wool cables! It's handmade (both are), in a beautiful dark teal colour (my camera changed the colour somehow, you have the real colour in a small box in the right hand corner), with several leather buttons.
Unfortunately it's too small for me, but I'll frog it and turn it into some new cardigan, maybe Blackberry? *^v^*
EDIT: I tried to unravel this cardigan and it turned out that it's very heavily eaten by moths and felted here and there. Well, at least I got 9 leather buttons in a perfect condition for about 75 cents! ^^
Drops Jacket has a left front ready, yikes! ^^ but it turned out too long, I have to frog a bit and check why it happened. ^^ Diddlinaknits, I have the gauge of 12 stitches per 4 inch, I think it's bulky.
One more thing: I remember that ages ago I promised a tutorial on making the summer parasol, and I haven't forgotten it, I just have to finish some details! Be positive, if not this Summer, it will be ready for the next one! *^v^*
(No, I'm kidding, I'll post about it very soon! ^^)
