Joining Me-Made-June

I have many clothes making hours ahead of me. Zoe has just announced Me-Made-June. Following on the success of her Me-Made-March/May and Self-Stitched-September challenges she is organising another one. Last year I participated in MMMay and SSS. I didn't join in MMMarch this year though for a few reasons: I was travelling, I didn't have so many me-made clothes (I threw away loads in a moment of madness) and also, SSS still felt too fresh. September was quite tiring for me (in the end I stopped taking photos of my outfits, I was getting sick of it).

Now though I feel up to the challenge again. And it will be June! Summer!! A different season means different clothes, I can wear my favourite summer dresses! Also, I won't have to wear so many layers so I won't need to make so much stuff.

So here is my pledge:

'I, Jodi Wade, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear
only garments I have made myself  (with the exception of lingerie, hosiery and socks) each day for the duration of June 2011'

I am looking forward to June. I have been knitting away like crazy, especially now that I want to finish my jumper by June.

I have been carrying my knitting around with me everywhere.... It is good to be able to make something while I am 1000km away from my sewing machine.

I spent about half an hour in the yarn store, getting the lovely man who works there to explain the pattern to me. He couldn't translate everything though so I will have to wing it a bit. I haven't met anyone who knows knitting terminology in both Turkish and English...

In other news, I got a lovely surprise today. My blue dress is Member Project of the Week on BurdaStyle!!!!
