as my family is still living in lithuania, i keep in touch with them mostly via skype. i do video chats with my mom at least once a week, which is really nice because we can not only talk and see each other, but also show projects we are working on. so a couple months ago my mom showed me a skirt she was crocheting for my niece and i liked it so much that i asked her to make one for me too. so she did, but the yarn she used was so thin that skirt ended up being see through. well, it wasn’t such a big deal, because i simply traced the shape of the skirt onto the fabric, cut, sewed it together, attached underneath, added an elastic on a waistline and it was done almost in an hour. in that case i guess you could barely call it a collaboration, because the input of both of us was way too uneven, but i like to think that way. the top i’m wearing was refashioned when i was in high school, the only thing i had to do now – reinforce all the seams.
sometimes i’m really bad at taking pictures of the things i make. i made one of those twisted yarn necklaces for my friends birthday in january. as i really liked how it turned out, i made one more for myself too but kept forgetting to take picture of it. you can find the tutorial on how to twist yarn here. i used lily sugar’n cream stripes cotton yarn. its really easy and fun project – you never know what the final result might look like.
the summer haven’t come yet but i’m thinking about the clothes for the fall already. well, could you blame me that i want this sweater really bad? that fox face is so darn cute and i’m totally in love with the colors. good thing i have my mom who started to work on this already. the sweater was found browsing dos family visit at dennis and mette home who also run the lovely ungtblod.
i’m not sure is it because of the heat or the humidity but my last posts are so colorful and crowded that today i feel like posting something super simple. like this ball bobby pin i made a while ago from the scratch of yarn.
finds like those two necklaces make me so excited that i feel like a dog who can’t stop wagging his tail. one day i will definitely try make something like that. via candy castle.
