Some cute new Phildar patterns for Summer--
and they kinda read my mind on these ones:
A few months ago I made this pinafore for my friend's new baby,
and ever since I've been toying with the idea of making my own adult version. And I guess now I don't really have to!
My favourite from the new catalogue might be this one though:
Though maybe not in a varigated...I don't do varigated very well. But there are lots to choose from. This next one actually reminds me of similar number that my mom DID knit for me in the early eighties (in a lovely "dusty pink" if memory serves...) I wonder what ever happened to that?
Picture it "fuzzier..."
Wish I'd kept it. I definitely know where the blue-green enormo navaho-style jacket she knit for me in the early nineties is(or was it like 89?)--I wish I could say it was my during my "grunge" phase, but I think it was more a part of the guatamalan/hippie thing that I was going through there for a while. (a seriously bad time for fashion...)
But it's all verrrrry eighties with these colour choices. I thought this whole electro thing was dead in the water by now? I blame American Apparel for this. And also hate myself for kinda liking it.
No english versions on any of these patterns yet, but they are no doubt in the works. Phildar seems like they're pretty much translating everything these days.
