just a few pictures of my Florence stay last month. I enjoyed it a lot. Florence is a beautiful city, a small city and a weekend trip will be great for it. For a longer stay use the train to visit the cities nearby. This I was told by some colleagues while being there. It’s easy and fast. I think next time I will definitely do so. Florence is worth a beautiful weekend (even on a rainy spring day)
Hello dearies 🙂
it’s spring and everything’s getting green and fresh and all that jazz, I love it!!
And I love wearing my first herringbone cowl. To be honest it’s the first cowl I ever made, and I was sceptical about the cowl in itself, like how it will wear and if it won’t be too big or too small. But no, this one is a clear yes! When I saw the pic on malabrigos insta-feed I feel in love (also the name of the colorway was my name so it felt like fate to make it) – but I think you know this already, I blogged a bit about it 🙂 here for example, which you should click if you like progress pics and want to drool a little.
1 – “hey how your doing? sorry you can’t get through. Why don’t you leave your name and your number and I get back to you” .. if you’re old enough (and cool enough;)) to know this DeLaSoul song, you’re my best friend. They played this tune this morning on the radio and it made me happy immediately. Like in the old days.
As promised I made a second cyclone hat. I wanted something a little thinner, a little more spring. The two layers the original cyclone hat is made from make for a warm and cozy hat in winter, but Berlin winters are long and often pretend to be nice spring days, when then they show you their windy side and you get cold again. So an airier hat was totally up my alley.
The original pattern is here.
for this version I used:
yarn: madelinetosh Prairie in georgia o keefe (the dark blue lace side) and kitten (the grey of the stripes and the ribbing) and undergrowth (sky blue)
So, it’s already way into March, about time to look back at last month, yes? And you know February is a really short month , I don’t feel blame for looking back when it’s almost April, haha. Also my mind is still somehow in February, men are blocking the thinking. I really don’t know if you want to know about such stuff. You know I’m single and don’t have the life of your average “knitting and writing about it and my happy little life in a blog” person. There is no husband who brings me flowers without no reason or two small kids that smile funnily into the camera. I’m single, I enjoy (and struggle) with the ups and down this comes with.
