Today’s photoshoot was my first outing after a couple of days spent in bed! I’m recovering from pyelitis, followed by a nasty inflammation at the arm because of negligence with the cannula they had inserted at the hospital. I’m still weak, but I couldn’t stand staring at the same walls anymore! I had finished this… Read More A first outing, a giant scarf and DUCKLINGS!
Grumperina’s Shifting Sands Scarf has been in my Ravelry queue pretty much since I made an account there. A lot of scarf patterns languish in my queue from that time where I still thought I had enough patience for scarves. Besides, I have plenty of scarves and shawls to keep my neck warm. That said, when… Read More Mum’s Shifting Sands Scarf
Every once in a while people ask me if I do commissions (or straight up ask me to knit or sew them something), and I always shoot them down. Knitting and sewing is my hobby and shouldn’t turn into another daily chore. It is, however, possible to drop very specific hints if, say, your birthday… Read More A Slytherin Scarf for my favourite Draco Malfoy!
I know we knitters tend to avoid synthetic fibres (for, amongst others, the very valid reason that they’re horrid for the environment), but sometimes the little girl in me just can’t resist the sparkly. Ever since I saw the yarn in my LYS’s bi-annual yarn magazine, I had known I needed to knit with it. I… Read More More colours, more fun
First off, I’m SO sorry for accidentally posting this twice before. I had scheduled it at certain dates, but never came around to writing the text, and then promptly forgot about it. I apologize for spamming your reading list with unfinished posts … Me Made May was all in all a bit “meh” for me… Read More Me-Made-May ’15 – Summary
I know we’re talking about a very short week here, but I’m too excited about Me-Made-May to wait until next Sunday. 😛 Day 1 Jumper: This one for parties Hat: Dark Green Hat (unblogged, link to Ravelry) Warm and beautiful! Though I do need more skirts to go with it. The hat I’ve come to love, even… Read More Me-Made-May ’15 – Week One
1) Mum’s Red Hat My mother asked for a red hat to go with her red coat and even though I heavily side-eyed this idea, she wouldn’t be persuaded otherwise. Since I live in another city, I couldn’t just go take her coat to the LYS to find a suitable shade of red, I decided… Read More Christmas Presents
I know May has been over for a while now, but I still wanted to post the promised MeMadeMay ’14 roundup – life has just been very demanding. First a gallery with every garment I’ve worn in May! Click on one of the pictures to enlarge it. I really have to thank So, Zo… for creating… Read More Me-Made May ’14 – Summary
Week three has been really positive. I’ve been feeling good about taking pictures again. What’s more, it’s given me the chance to figure out how tripod and self-timer work. I’ve been meaning to explore the functions of my camera more (a Sony Alpha 58 my parents gave me for my birthday this year) and learn… Read More Me Made May ’14 – Week Three
After the second week, I think I can confidently say that I can do this Me Made May thing. I didn’t struggle to find something to wear everyday, I just occasionally had to think how to combine the selfmade and the storebought garments. However, I’m having somewhat of a crisis right now that’s less about… Read More Me Made May ’14 – Week Two
