-cleaning the apartment (the apartment is never cleaner than when jake is working on the show nights & weekends)
-stressing out about the possibility of moving
-destressing because why would i ever want to leave our fabulous apartment?
-knitting away on the cowl (totally obsessed)
-honing my video editing skills (i’ve taken over primary care of the updates so that jake can focus on the show even more.
-getting trounced at scrabble
-seeing friends who are in from out of town (& friends who still live here)
-wearing the same shirt two days in a row (admit it: we’ve all done it!)

sorry my hair is wet. i didn’t feel like waiting three hours until it looked properly dry. i really like the way this purse goes with this skirt! i promise i didn’t forget how to count. i owe you outfit 18! but these two were my weekend outfits, so i thought i’d lump 18 in with another work outfit!

whoo! i’m a little scattered right now, so this is a short post. but i made you a gif, so you’ll forgive me, right? i’m trying to get a lot done this weekend; wish me luck!
i got a little fancy in photoshop for you guys today. i hope you likey:
oh my glob! there’s three me’s! this was, bee tee dubs, totally inspired by stef from diversions cloning photo-editing.

a recent favorite trick for a day when you realize ‘oops my hair’s kinda dirty, but there’s no time to do anything about that now’. french braid into a bun.

if i may offer you a piece of advice: on the occasion when you desire to take pictures of an outfit… don’t do it right after a big meal. also, i’m not sure this skirt is around for the long haul. even though i’ve owned it for several years, i can count on one hand the number of times i’ve worn it. i tossed it in the remix as one of my stretch pieces, and i think post-remix it’s time to admit defeat. summery h & m skirt: we gave it a shot, but we just don’t suit.
i went thrifting the other day, and as a matter of course, i checked out the ‘crafts’ section, which usually consists of maybe 2 skeins of primary colored acrylic yarn. but! guess what i found:
a skein of really old school manos del uruguay! i have no idea when it’s from (though the copyright says 1977), but i think it’s pretty cool (as well as being grey, which is pretty much golden in my book).
in other knitting news:
i cast on for the stockholm scarf! i’ve been meaning to make it for.ev.er. i don’t know what’s been holding me back. some of the time it’s because i’ve been working on something else, and some of the time it’s because i couldn’t make yarn decisions. this was one of about 4 options. but this particular yarn (which i overdyed back in the day), i have really never had any other ideas for. i’m not 100% sure how i feel about how it’s knitting up. my problem is that i might love yarn with lots o’ colors in the skein, but i am super-dooper picky about how they knit up. what do you think of it?

i didn’t paint my nails to match this shirt… but i did decide to wear this shirt once i realized it matched my nails.
(tart deco is the color of my nail polish. according to essie. i’d call it borderline neon coral, myself. but that doesn’t have the same ring)

weekends are for:
-chores around the house (our pantry is spotless! no expired food, freshly cleaned shelves, totally reorganized!)
-no fuss outfits
-bike rides into town for dinner
-finishing several knits, sewing in the ends, steaming them and taking pictures!
-casting on for a new project (stockholm scarf!)
-watching violent action movies (the raid: redemption. it was amazing! if you like violent action, anyways!)

note the second: i don’t think this was a successful outfit. these two pictures are very kind to this outfit, but it never really gelled. i was always pulling at something or tucking something else. i still like the inspiration source, though. so it might be worth revisiting at another time.

is weird that i feel taller in a maxi skirt? like it might actually make me feel as tall as wearing my ridiculously tall wedges from the previous outfit? this outfit was super way more comfortable. and flattering, i think.
