hello lovelies.. you having a good week?
i have been knitting since tuesday and im totally addicted. Growing up as a kid, i watched my mum knit, what seemed like, constantly. Every evening she had a pair of knitting neddles in her hands and a new ball of wall and her patterns to follow. I asked her to teach me when i was about 12. We both gave up as i was a know it all kid who would not listen and mum was a stressed out mother who had a kid on her case. Now 15 years later i listened and she taught!! and it is amazing! i am loving it!! I’m still learning and have a looong way to go, but i’m really enjoying it and find it so relaxing. I will share a couple of pics of my first makes once done. Alongside that i’m bursting with crafty ideas!! I am far from crafty(when i say far i mean faaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrr!!), so it must be my sis rubbing off on me. but it feels good! im a very happy chappy!
So 70’s… you know i love it right? the style, the music…so good! We’ve been listening to a lot of old Deep Purple lately. This outfit is obviously inspired!
Shirt/tunic:Chelsea Girl range from River Island
the waitscoat and rust flares are also River Island but older.
think this tunic may get a lot of wear, wanted to wear it with tights and boots but again, i was tooo cold (minus 1 most of the day, and i know to some people right now that have minus 20 degree weather, i sound like a wimp, but i really hate being cold!) i also have two vests on underneath, talk about bulking up!!
i went through a few days of being totally uninspired.. i changed 5 TIMES yesterday morning(5 times i tell you!!it was ridiculous) and still ended up in a mediocre outfit.. i was lacking in the creative juices… I went and stood looking in to my wardrobe that evening and decided to mentally start putting outfits together and even trying different combos on, and i got my mojo back. I hopefully have some funky outfits sitting up there in my wardrobe waiting for me and ready to wear. do you ever get those lacklustre days? between that and crafts i’m feeling good! inspired even.. something i’ve never really felt before, and it feels great!
And i hope you’re feeling just as good lovelies!
Lots Of Love
