since finishing the sideways grande cloche, i’ve been primarily working on this:
top down raglan striped sweater for jake. once i finish knitting the body (and the collar), i’m going to steek it open, and knit on a button band. this is a long term project, and has always been intended as one. i just finished the first sleeve, so it’s time to replicate! once i’ve finished that, i wouldn’t be surprised if this gets set aside for a bit again.
the tile is a jugenstile (art nouveau) tile from a berlin flea market. most of the berlin flea markets are on sundays, but we got to berlin on a sunday evening, and left the next sunday in the morning… but we found one that was open on saturday as well, so i got a few spoils, including the golden birdie below:
the ‘luther is my homeboy’ magnet was a gift left by the previous tenant.
and my wee twee tea cabinet. too much? these aren’t all of my teas (ha! not by a long shot!), only the ones with pretty packaging. celestial seasonings boxes don’t do it for me, aesthetically. speaking of not doing it for me, aesthetically, our dish drying rack wasn’t great… but then this guy followed us home from ikea:
so much better!
