WIPs and Wandering Around…

Hello,my friends!

I’m a bit away from blogland in these days but that is because my Big man has some days off and we are spending them wandering aroun a bit… Two days spent in the Apennines and tomorrow we are travelling to Croatia for a three days trip. I’m still crafting a lot and have some projects to share with you but they are not FO yet. More about when we are back home. For now just a photo of one of them, the gift excange with Sewchet.

FO :: The Brick Red Crescent Shawl

I didn’t tell you? Sorry I was so concentrated on my sewing projects that I completely forgot to mention that I was knitting another Crescent Shawl in the meantime… This is for a gift exchange with Uncinetto e Mille Fili Colorati 🙂 ❤

I hope that you’ll like it even if you see the same pattern for the third time already … 😛

Love

What a heat!!!

Hello, my friends!!

These are dog days indeed!!!We reached 35°C and I am hardly able to do anything with this heat! Oh,add to this temperature a relative humidity of 73%… ohhhhh…. The only way I can face this weather is by knitting …. (what an excuse, isn’t it…? 😉 ) …. the border of my Crescent shawl is slowly growing….

I do hope that it will be finished off for the weekend…. Can’t wait to wear it!!

My Big man and me were at a local antiquity street market last weekend and we made a lovely purchase …. well,it was more like this…

Me: Oh, look!!! I love that! We absolutely must have that at ours!!! (read: I absolutely must have that at mine!!! ….. it is only me, or sometimest it happens to you too to think you live by yourself…. in particular when it is a matter of home decor….)

My Big man:

(ONLY BECAUSE HE CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE OBJECT I FELL IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT….)

Let me introduce you….

MY VERY FIRST CUPCAKE STAND

WP_20150628_16_30_01_Pro

The photo does not do justice to the stand but I’ll try to take some better ones in the future. I simply love it! And, of course, I tried to bake some muffins just to see how the stand looks when there are sweets on it…

WP_20150629_14_17_27_Pro

Better,don’t you think? Now I have to learn to make cupcakes and try to decorate them just because!! Well,even if my Big man doesn’t understand my enthusiasm for those useless things, he will love to pick up a muffin from the stand for breakfast from now on 🙂

Off to try to refresh me somehow!

Have a nice evening!

Love

Fixing…

Hello, my friends!

I’m a bit absent-minded lately… or at least I feel like that…. A lot of things are happening in these days mostly related to small every day issues which are fixed as you go but which do not allow me to be online as often as I used to be. Well,on one hand,that’s not so bad because I’m often out but, on the other, I follow less the news in blogland… I have to say that here is not like live in Parma. It takes me half an hour or forty minutes by bike to reach the nearest grocery shop so if I want anything it takes me something like two hours for fetch it… go out, time spent in the shop, a chat, and go back home… But if you have seen my photos on Instagram you can easy understand why I don’t mind spending so much time out….

Since it is fifteen years that I do not practice any sport (except working or similar obligatory ‘to do’ stuff… ) my muscular ache was quite bad lately and that made me feel quite dizzy… Now I feel much better but the time I need to ride around is the same… and there is less of it to dedicate to blogland… :/

I’m always crafting… I always find time for create and even if now I have my Big man both at lunch and dinner (YIPPEE!!!!) I didn’t neglect my craft.

I’m both working on my curtains….

…. and on my Crescent shawl

WP_20150625_18_06_36_Pro

Talking about this last project of mine…. I made a mistake in this central part of the shawl… I realized, after two rows knitted already, that I had lost a stitch…. and this was the result….

WP_20150625_16_48_02_Pro

Can you spot the three holes…? They don’t exactly look like a honeycomb, do they….? By the way, this lace looks much alike a honeycomb… well, I was thinking about leaving this as it is but the awareness of those three holes’ existance annoyed me to the point that I had to find a solution…

WP_20150625_16_56_25_Pro

Spotted the fixed part, the one indicated by the hook?Oh, I didn’t do anything special except bring a string of yarn up to the last worked row… it still does not look like a honeycomb but it is much better than having three ugly holes which can be easily noticed by anyone… Yes, I know, I’m exhausting… indeed…

It is time to make dinner here so I’m off to prepare something for the two of us…

Have a nice evening ❤ ❤ ❤
