Friday Fancies

Hooray!  It's Friday once again, and time for another round up of things that have taken my fancy this week. 

I've done these posts intermittently since I started this blog, but I'm going to try and make them a more regular feature this year.

First up, the Bryn Mawr knitted dress, designed by Alex Capshaw-Taylor.

I'm under no illusions that I'd have time to finish knitting this before Spring, but it's definitely going into my queue to be knitted next in time for next Winter.

Also, you should definitely visit Alex's blog to read about her totally amazing hand knitted wedding dress.  It's gorgeous!



Next up, a very useful chart about sewing machine needles, and which one to use for which job.  I need to pin this up right above my sewing machine and get used to actually changing the needle as appropriate!

Now I've never had the slightest interest in sewing my own underwear (that's what Marks & Spencer is for), but this pattern might just change my mind.  It's one of Gertie's new ones for Butterick, and very pretty.

I'm trying to up my intake of veggies and healthy stuff, and I can't wait to try this yummy looking chargrilled cauliflower salad, by Yotam Ottolenghi.  I've actually been searching for this recipe for ages, and stumbled upon it this week. 



Finally, because I'm a bit of a geek at heart, and I recently watched the last Harry Potter film, the evolution of Neville Longbottom.


That's all for this week.  Have a lovely weekend.

    1. It is, isn't it? I'm not sure on colour, I normally choose the type of yarn I want first, then see what colours they have, but probably dark grey or a dark plummy colour.

  2. Ahaha! I have the last Harry Potter movie sitting here waiting for me to watch! Will probably do it this weekend!
