What a pain.   :(  And what a shame we can't do it virtually - we have all the expert assistance you could need here. 

Actually, we could.  I've done a fitting with a member of the previous forum/site.

Hmm, I'm just wondering what is "far from perfect" about them.  They look fab and an excellent idea for christmas gifts.

The size on my phone says 13mp.

@Lowena  I don't even know how you find that out!  :facepalm:

Thanks for that @Acorn i tried finding that info a while ago but couldn’t.  Obviously not looking in the right place!   :facepalm:

I send photos to myself in yahoo mail and resize them that way.

 :( It is such a faff to do it that way though and I try to avoid using my email via my phone.  I've not posted things because of that and was wondering if there was a quick an easy way.  Until I find one that I can just upload straight from my phone, I guess I shall just refrain from posting pics.

Yep.  Please make the photo a LOT smaller.

How can I make it smaller when uploading directly from my phone? (technonumpty alert!)

I wanted to upload a photo from my phone but its not letting me do it.  It says its a fatal error, something to do with size maybe?

l love Emily Hallam's style and she does fabulous wrap dresses.

She started a sew along for a wrap dress a couple of years ago, for which I got the pattern.  I didn't end do the sewalong in the end and I keep looking at it think I might do it but then keep stalling.  Maybe being in a woven fabric (my plan was to do it in a light weight denim) might be a better look than a jersey option.

My neighbour still irons on her table in the kitchen.
If you don't have your ironing board up permanently in the kitchen where do you keep most of your stash?  :laughing:

@wrenkins  Err......on any other surface I can find  :facepalm: :laughing: :laughing:

Me too and bizarrely, it makes my girls look totally lop-sided, which they aren't.  I guess it is just the way the lines of the dress cross my boobs but it looks so weird I don't wear them

and here's me hand knitting mosty bamboo wool (slippy bugger), hoping to get finished by the end of the month!

But Bamboo wool is just so delicious!

@Bodgeitandscarper that is a beautiful jumper and the stitch is lovely.
