Whoa! Sorry, can't remember the last time I missed a couple days in a row (at least, not without advance notice) but I was traveling a bit and had spotty internet access — those EVDO cards are looking better and better, I tell you — but, now we're back, and with this:
This pattern is up on eBay from UK seller (from whom I recently purchased this).
I really thought I'd written about this one before, but a little googling didn't turn it up. If I haven't, I should have, because, well, look at it! I would love to make this almost exactly as shown, in those gray and white stripes, although I'd probably make the button and belt red. And I'm sure I'd futz around with trying red piping along those bodice seams, before giving up in frustration and re-cutting the mangled bit I'd experimented on …
Of course, the downside of ordering from UK sellers at the moment is that it seems they're having a ! I also ordered a bunch of Liberty babycord from eBay right before they walked out, so I have that feeling you get when you believe, superstitiously, that the universe has overreacted to your behavior. I mean, I *knew* I didn't need any more Liberty babycord, but it was so beautiful … but jeez, wouldn't it have been easier for the universe just to cause a minor eBay error? A postal strike seems a bit excessive, frankly. So I'd like to apologize to anyone else who may have been caught up in the chastisement the universe prepared for me.
