Currently Stitching & InstagramFirst a little side note, as of today you can find me on Instagram, so if you'd like to follow me please do! I've actually had an Instagram account for 4 years but the last time I posted anything was 2,5 years ago. If you follow me on Instagram you'll get cute cat pictures, sneak peeks of patterns I'm translating and frequent sewing & knitting project updates! I promise I will spare you the pictures of my breakfast ;)
I am currently completely knitting obsessed. I just feel like knitting every pretty pattern I come across. So I just had to break my 'one project' rule and started on a bolero which has also been on the top of my list. This one's from the Sun-glo knitting book series 49 purchased from GrannyspdfPatterns on Etsy. I specially purchased some black 4 ply for this (Red Heart Margareta) but the yarn was quite thin and my tension was so far off! Lucky for me, I also had some black DK weight yarn in my stash and that gave me the correct gauge right away. I don't really mind though because now it will certainly be suitable for winter, which is what I wanted.
I have also been sewing again. Actually, I must shamefully admit, I have been for weeks. I finally started on Butterick 5281 - which I had been planning since this summer - a few weeks ago and am now finally close to finishing it. I think it's simply taking so long because I am currently much more knitting obsessed. Even though I do feel inspired to sew and have lots of stuff I want to make. Time for a new inspiration post?
