Happy Birthday Zoltan!

This Friday is my little brother's 23rd birthday, so last night I made him a card. I cut the feather freehand out of gold card with a craft knife, and then realised that the piece of card it had been cut out of was just as pretty. So I ended up using them both on the card.

I've finally finished the crocheted cardigan I have been working on for eons. The photo was taken at the end of the day with very low sun, and now I realise I should have stood the other way so the stitches weren't in shadow! Also, the yarn is actually a bright bright turquoise, but somehow my camera makes it seem like a sky blue. I'm still struggling with this photo taking lark.

Pattern: Short and Sweet by Angela Best
Source: Stitch 'n' Bitch Crochet
Yarn: Bouton d'Or Caraibes Cotton
Hook: 4.5mm
Size: medium

Modifications: It was supposed to have sleeves, but in the end I left it as a sort of sleeveless vest, as they looked all stretched out by my giant shoulders.

Here are some lovely earrings that arrived in the post today from Rabbittobunny, who has some great beads and jewellery. You can't really see in the photo, but the leaves on these are actually irridescent green. I also bought some beads that are glass strawberries, I can't wait to work out a project for them.

And lastly, here is a rather gorgeous piece of graffiti by Deb that I walk past on the way to work every morning, on Johnston St in Fitzroy. Check out Hellblazer's Flickr page for more of Deb's great work, and hooray for girls with spray cans!
