Sheer Delight

I haven't really done much over the summer, just gotten addicted to knitting. I'm currently knitting a jumper, which I first despised, but now I'm growing to love.

in progress jumper

The colours and stripes are so weird...

bow and letter

replying and sending letters :)


sewing, I think I need a trip to a fashion show, or to a new city with lots of shopping centres for inspiration I've lost my mojo for sewing.

Sailor Stockings

Mr Nice Guy got me some nice stockings too, I'm just thinking how to co-ordinate them now :) Thank you Mr Nice Guy =^_^=

I wanna knit alot more jumpers, but the current one has been such a bitch to knit! I knitting it on the wrong needles, then the wrong tension, and then the yarn kept breaking :(, hopefully I'll have it finished very soon though.

Also ran 6miles/9.5km with Mr Nice Guy yesterday ^_^

How far have you ran before?
sorry I haven't had a chance to catch up on everyone's blogs yet too!

The jumper looks lovely, I love all the colours in it! The stockings your bf got you are too cute :)

I am so utterly hopeless at running! I recently tried with my bf, wasn't so bad but we probably only ran about a mile aha.

Knitting sounds so complicated >_<
I hope you get your sewing mojo back soon!

Komachi said...

Die farblichen Abstufungen bei deinem Jumper müssen doch auch höllisch schwer gewesen sein, oder? O_O Sieht aber bisher schon echt toll aus! Bin auf das fertige Werk gespannt :)

Respekt für deinen Ehrgeiz beim Marathon! Bei dem Wetter im Moment hab ich nicht mal überhaupt das mojo zu joggen und du wirst sicherlich dauernd trainieren müssen. Ehrlich, respekt! :)

Nava said...

Great post! I love it! ^^ You have such an inspiring blog, mind to follow each other? :)

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I think that skull skirt is going to look really great, and I also like the anchor leggings.

Maybe you should take a trip to somewhere different to find some fashion/sewing inspiration.
