My housemate bought us a new vacuum cleaner this week. I confess I have been somewhat disinterested in this state of affairs beyond a vague acknowledgement that after the old one blew up on me the other week, we really did need a new one. So we have a new one and I’ve just hoovered my room for the first time since we moved in and it’s looked like I’ve actually done so. I swear it’s like some kind of belated Christmas miracle. In honour of this joyous state of affairs, I figured it was time I followed up my last ballet-tastic give away on account of the fact that I finally tackled drawer two of dance wear ages ago and just chucked all the stuff I didn’t want any more in the box of ‘things I need to give to other people’ and promptly forgot about. So this is the not!skirts edition:
Legwarmers, woo! There’s two pairs of 60cm legwarmers in dayglo pink and green – if you’re feet are misbehaving in these, trust me, you’ll know all about it. The other pair in that photo are probably about 55cm, interestingly pooled, hand knits (probably not machine washable sadly). The final pair are thigh high (they fit my 30″ish inside leg quite nicely) in blue, grey and a bit of self patterning Fair Isle and these are machine washable (mostly acrylic with a tiny smidge of wool therein), also made by moi.
Shrugs, also woo! I have no idea what possessed me to knit myself shrugs when there is no better designed garment to highlight my kyphosis, well done me, heh 😉 They’re both short sleeved. The wacky colour striped one is a bamboo yarn and machine washable. The other one is baby llama and not machine washable but it does have awesome poofy sleeves and is super soft.
If you want any of the above, metaphorically wave enthusiastically in comments. And on that note, I’m off to bake scones for work…
