Attachment ..

This is another of the jumper/vest type creations I have been making.
Silly old me forgot to take a before photo again...
It was a very puffy sleeved 80's looking hand knit jumper, mohair I believe.
I have felted ,hacked, added and recontructed to form the vest you now see.
Every moment of the process is pure bliss.
By the end of the process I find myself a little sad to be selling them.
This one sold the day after i put it in the shop, I was there when the lovely lady purchased it, I like getting to meet the people that buy my work .

So, goodbye for now little assymetrical vest friend, I hope your enjoy your new life . . . . .

Another brilliant transformation Mim. I'm also glad you like making them... and that they're selling well. What a perfect combination!

This one was lovely. Make sure you post pics of the one you showed me the other night. The one for your singing teacher. It rocks.

I'd be crying when letting them go as well. Gorgeous!

It must be some comfort that it has gone to a new home to be loved Mim. It is amazing.
