Went out with Fo on Friday to get our hair fixed and found these shoes. (Fo is my lucky charme.) And because I’m feeling anti and a little rebellious even though I’m neither of these things proven by the fact that I’ve been working on my dissertation for hours now, some pics. (Oh, and thanks to db for helpful advice.)
Finally, it is blocked and done! I am so happy, even though it looks nothing like what I wanted it to look. *cough* I have no idea what exactly went wrong. While knitting it, I sometimes wondered about the pattern, but then I decided to just mindlessly follow the instructions, because I am a total noob. And then this happened. Next time I will just follow my heart.~ Still, I like this sweater anyways. Evento by Lana Grossa is btw a very beautiful, soft, warm and light yarn. Knitting this project was a lot of fun. And I still have a few skeins left, so yay! ^.^ (I do not get paid by Lana Grossa.)
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?
