day 2

boyfriend and i are watching "bullit" with steve mcqueen and i'm trying to get all my project pictures updated. turns out, i have yet to take most of the current projects pictures, so taht will be my goal for tomorrow (when there's daylight).

but for tonight, i'm going to show off two pieces i finished in august. one is a wips-wrestling ravelympics project that didn't quite make the finish line (i finished it a few days late). it's a ribbed scarf i made purely because i got the grey and the pink merino wool cheap (turned out the grey had a few cut strands, i repaired as best as i could as i went along. the pink was perfect, though) and the black wool came from my stash. i didn't weave in teh ends but knotted them to little bows along one egde of the scarf - i have yet to decide wether i like it or not, it was more a choice out of convenience and lazyness than of personal preference. if temperatures keep dropping at the current rate here, i'll have a chance to wear it very soon. =)

baby booties 4


baby booties 1the other one is the second pair of baby booties i made from an online pattern by sock pixie (via ravelry) for friends of ours who have a new baby - the first pair turned out rather too big, was finished with the recipient in the next room and the two booties somehow weren't the exact same size. i don't have any pictures of those (my first pair of booties ever!), but these are of the second pair i knit. this is pre-wash, so the still look a bit lumpy, but they will be fine i guess. i used a heavier weight wool than appropriate for the pattern, so i had to change it quite a bit. i'm thinking of making up my very own baby bootie pattern, actually. i'll keep you posted on how i'm getting along. i also made a matching bib from a pattern in ravelry, i'll show you pictures of that tomorrow.

until we meet again - be happy!

about me

i’m a classical singer from vienna and like to relax and unwind (something my boyfriend suggests very strongly) with a little web surfing and crafting. the internet is a magnificent source of inspiration and techniques and i’m hoping to add my share to that in my own little way. you can find me on ravelry and flickr
