Yesterday, I got some amazing news about a new work project and promptly sat down to knit. Yes, knitting was my celebration!
Enjoying life to the fullest is all about doing the things that make you heart sing and knitting happens to be one of these happy things for me. I haven’t picked up a new knitting project in about two years, but saw a cool long, minimalist turtleneck waistcoat in Lindex that I immediately wanted to recreate. Luckily, I already had the wool yarn (having headed up marketing and sales at Dalegarn (Dale Yarn) I have plenty of wool in storage…), so all I needed to do was to knit some swatches and do some calculations.
When I’m not knitting, I’m playing dress-up in my closet. I’m currently on a shopping hiatus and am actually having plenty of fun restyling old pieces into new outfits. Finally living in a dry climate where on most days the sun’s out gets my creative juices going, as opposed to living in rainy Bergen, like I used to. Now I can wear suede, skirts and normal shoes well into the winter, as there are no puddles, crazy wind or rainy backsplash to deal with. Bliss!
Today’s outfit was worn on Sunday, the day of rest. Though there wasn’t much rest, exactly, as I cleaned the flat, tidied up and retrieved my winter clothes from the attic while the washing machine was working its way through numerous loads of washing. Being reunited with my old winter favourites is like having a brand new wardrobe all together! With some clever layering I can still wear some of my summer clothes and with two wardrobes to choose from, my creative juices are overflowing — there are clothes covering every surface in my bedroom. I even managed to shoot a few of these outfits yesterday afternoon, so if nothing unexpected happens, new posts will be up every day for the remainder of this week. So much fun!
