I’ve been looking for a nice bralette for quite some time now but my buying attempts always failed because of a rather poor fit. As I wasn’t keen to wait much longer, I decided to make my very own. A short look into my closet revealed an old pair of jogging pants and a top with adjustable straps that I found to be very helpful…
“I wouldn’t dare to knit something like this – all I can do is a beanie.” – that’s what I heard several times when I slowly let a stitch glide from one needle to the other. When I admitted that I hadn’t even knitted a beanie yet, I earned startled looks. But it’s true: The cardigan I’m wearing in today’s post is the first piece of knitting I’ve ever finished. My grandmother showed me some techniques about ten years ago but after my efforts resulted in the ugliest piece of scarf ever I surrendered.
Most people like Christmas – I do too. I love how everything is decorated, I love the food and I love spending time with my beloved ones. What I don’t like about Christmas is the infinite amout of garbage nobody needs. I get sick from walking over a Christmas market seeing all the useless plastic gifts, the annoying music and the bratwurst piles. Not very christmas-y right?
I think I’ve rarely talked on at/least about something as often as about this book: The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees. After implying here and there what I’ve learned from Ms. Rees oeuvre I want to go into detail with today’s post.
