All the Wild Horses…

This is the Deer & Doe Plantain Top – I actually finished this on the last day of January in time for the sewcialists #bluefebruary. DSC_0120I was so pleased with myself, finishing something off for myself for once… Then I had a knock on the door from my builder, turned out he could start the re-decorating my flat earlier than anticipated. The next thing I know – CHAOS! I think I’ve only just recovered from it. Don’t get me wrong, they did a great job but it definitely makes you appreciate not moving house or packing your stuff up for a very long time. Still, it has been a great time for de-cluttering my place and I feel a lot better mentally for it. Weird how clutter just seems to drain you mentally and physically.

I think next time that I would probably use the thicker lycra to finish the wrists too.

DSC_0129_01 Love the patches! DSC_0133 This is a really easy make, if you haven’t already made it – do it! Plus it’s a free pattern – bonus! Click here.

Also in other news – I’ve just joined Pinterest (and am now completely obsessed). If you’re on Pinterest, come and say hello 🙂

    Lovely top! I’m already obsessed with the Plantain pattern and have made five versions so far. I also picked up some of this gorgeous horse print at the recent Olympia Knit & Stitch show as its such a lovely quality knit. Great job.
