Well, I guess that about covers it....
A belated birthday present from my mother - the fabric to cover a chair I've come to call my throne. It's a late Victorian mock-Jacobean reproduction that I like to think might have been saved from the fire at Manderly. The fabric is a nice plain plum-coloured velvet which I'm hoping beyond all hope that Charlie thinks is too pretty to scratch. With the fabric I take off the chair, I'm going to make a nice, excessively textured wallhanging with some lovely felinesque shredwork.
Pictured here on top of the fabric is a scarf I knit using yarn from Three Waters Farm
and following the instructions for learning how to knit lace in the summer issue of Interweave Knits.
