12 in 11: November

I have nothing to report. Nothing at all. I've bought no clothes or accessories this month. So, I'm still at 12 items for 2011.

However, I am deeply bored by my summer clothes choices. This is partly the result of my annual realisation that I really don't like dressing for hot and sticky Sydney summers, and partly because all the summer clothes I do like require a lot more washing and ironing and general caring for than my winter clothes.  And the accessories (particularly the knitted ones) that make winter dressing such fun are impossible in summer.

Grumble, grumble. I think I might have to buy some clothes to cheer me up.

i loathe summer for all these reasons. i am disgusted and bored with my wardrboe too and am going to set aside a substantial chunk of time and money to do something about that soon, if only in the hope that summer wont be so stressful.

Fortunately I wasn't particpating or I might have blown it on Monday. After being stranded in Moree due to flooding, mum and I had to buy clothes becasue we'd been in the same ones for several days! I ended up with a skirt, a pair of knee-length shorts, three tee-shirts and a new swimming costume!

Yay! New clothes!

(it's totally ok to buy new ones if you get rid of old ones!)

As knitters we are programmed for cool weather and its accessories. Summer - meh.
