04-05: I wore the Bauhaus sweater I made. This sweater is a favourite and I wear it often. For a while it looked like it would be too warm already to grab a sweater, but then we got a week of nothing but rain and grey skies. Good for the challenge, but I would rather have had nice spring weather. The season is short enough as it is!
05-05: The previous day made me aware that regardless of the weather outside, the temperature in our new office block is HIGH. So today I chose to wear a short-sleeved sweater that I knitted some years ago. It was knit from a vintage pattern and I was never very happy with it. It was supposed to be form fitting, but is anything but. Additionally, the sleeves are weirdly shaped and bunch up under the arms. However, it is very comfortable, I love the yarn (an undyed Bluefaced Leicester yarn and Cascade 220 for the blue and green) and other people keep telling me it looks nice, so I keep wearing it. No one else has seen the pictures of the original pattern, so no one else knows how ‘wrong’ it is!
15-05: The weather has really been picking up, so it was time to pull out some summery clothes! I wore my self-drafted split skirt today, with two layers of white blouse on top. I’m still very happy with these trousers/this skirt, and would like to make a second one now that I understand a bit more about drafting.
16-05: I wore a vintage sweater I knit some years ago. It is still one of the favourite things I have ever knitted even though the cotton has stretched and it has lost some of the blouson effect at the waist and sleeves. I now wear it with a less ostentatious broche, a plain metal one of a bird. The pattern was included in A Stitch in Time vol. 1.
