Perhaps you can still remember the old chair I planned to restore to beauty and functionality. It is finished and it only took me thousands of hours of work and patience. I will never ‘just do’ something ever again. *lies*
It came out quite pretty though. Only drawback now is that the 3 other chairs look even crappier than before.
My talented friend Fo added in what must’ve been hours of work a beautiful emboridery to her handmade dress and I found it worthy of a more detailed series of pictures on my blog. ^.^ (because my standards are super-high) Here’s her tumblr btw: Fowo <3
I’m trying out facepaint styles for next weekend’s fantasy/renaissance faire (Mittelalterliches Phantasie Spectaculum, to be precise) - which we will go to as we’ve done every year since moving to Cologne. It’s one of the few traditional things in my life and holy fuck, I’m SO looking forward to it. :DDD Meeting all my fantastic friends, dressing up in our handmade dresses (thanks again, Fo!), drinking Kirschbier and Met, listening to great folk music and just enjoying the excellent atmosphere… ^.^
Still, not sure if this is too much fake blood? Too little? What do you guys think?
It’s a Filati Handstrick 38 pattern and not too difficult, but interesting enough to make this project a very fun knit. One day soon it will hopefully be a pretty and fitting sweater. The yarn is Lana Grossa’s Evento in 044. I fell for it so hard. Look at the colors. Beautiful! *-*
