paper houses


Ahh, a long week done. I spent many late night hours this week building small paper houses, which was way more difficult than I imagined. It was great to play with paper again.

Sadie's "Swing Thing" is finished, but unfortunately it's HUGE. The sleeves are terribly long on her; overall it ended up more in the 3-4 year size (oops, but at least it wasn't too small right?) As for knitting, I came across a shawl/cardigan yesterday on a lunchtime shopping trip that is a linen/cotton blend and is based on the basic style of this design (though what I found was lacier and quite pretty). My only question - is this style too old? Will I feel like a grandma wrapping myself in it? Because I gotta say, it feels oh so cozy...

The question is maybe...will you feel like "Stevie" Nicks wrapping herself in it? I think it could be cute.

Whatever. I am so cold right now in my uninsulated house that the shawl looks badass. If you think it looks old, I'll buy it off you.

Speaking of which, next time you're knitting small sweaters to put in shadow boxes, do you think you could make one in boyish colours? Nate's room is sunshine yellow with sage green and sky blue accents. I would definitely buy one of those.

Sam, Sam, Sam! As usual I'm thrilled with your creations! Can't wait to see your paper houses for real. The windows look lit up and the colours in the pic are wonderful.
