Som I helt sikkert kan huske, gik jeg i sommer igang med et ambitiøst (for mig i hvert fald) strikkeprojekt: En fin sløjfesweater fra Glamourstrik. Jeg blev egentlig færdig for flere måneder siden, men der gik travlhed i den, så jeg har først fået den afprøvet og fotograferet nu.
Resultatet er OK. Den er desværre blevet lidt for stor. Tror at fejlen er, at jeg tog mål til den imens jeg ammede, så havde en lidt større (og struttende) barm, da jeg gik igang. Så jeg valgte medium-modellen. Da jeg blev færdig med den, var jeg i midlertid færdig med at amme, og mælkbrysterne havde forvandlet sig til små teposer. Så det havde nok været pænere med en small …
Men er nu alligevel ret glad for den. Den er strikket i det fineste Alpaca fra Drops (mellem-grå), og den neutrale grå nuance manglede i mit ellers ret farvestrålende klædeskab.
Sløjferne er ret fine (hvis jeg selv skal sige det).
Det første strikke-stadie:
Øvede mig her i at strikke imens jeg læste e-bog på iPad. Det er det ene ærme jeg er igang med her.
Det kribler i mine fingre for at komme i gang med et nyt projekt fra bogen, men kan ikke blive helt enig med mig selv om, hvilket mønster jeg skal kaste mig over … det kan være, at der kommer en lille afstemning her på bloggen. Først skal jeg dog have gjort kål på nogle garnrester – men mere om det en anden dag.
I’ve spent the last week in a summer house with Mr. Boyfriend. The weather was brilliant and we did nothing but read books, take naps and prepare food. I left much of the latter to Mr. Boyfriend, though … But I knitted some cute little things, I’ll show you some other time. I wore my Edith & Ella shoes a lot. They are comfy and pregnant-lady friendly.
As for the books: I made it through Murakami’s Underground, which was a scary read on Tokyo’s gas attack in the 90s. After that I needed something light and entertaining, so the choice naturally fell on John Green’s Paper Towns. I enjoyed it a lot, but it left me longing for a different reading experience, something to shake me world a bit. Enter Edith Wharton! She never disappoints (disregarding Ethan Frome) and this little black Penguin edition made my day. I was heart broken that it was so short – I was ready to dive right into Wharton’s universe for a week or so without coming up for air. But all good things come to an end. Luckily I had Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to lick my wounds. I’ve only read about 20 pages, but it’s very promising! At night, Mr. Boyfriend and I listened to Dracula, which we finished on our last day. Tonight we’ll probably start listening to one of Hemingway’s novels.
I can still squeeze into much of my old summer clothes. This white dress is an old favorite of mine. I have no idea where it’s from, it’s just always been there in my closet. It leaves a lot of space for a giant belly, which has been a good thing lately. I paired it with my somewhat new Banned cardigan which I got at Rockahula and my red Office shoes from London. I’ve got a weakness for light blue compared with bright red.
What are you currently reading?
I have some big news to share today: I’m pregnant! Mr. Boyfriend and I are expecting a baby girl in November, and we’re super excited – can’t wait to meet her! So far (25 weeks) I’ve been lucky and have had a very easy pregnancy with almost no discomforts. I have no idea how it’ll affect the blog, but there will naturally be some changes as my life is changing.
Today I’m wearing a super comfortable dress from ASOS Maternity – there’s plenty of room to grow in it, which is good. And it’s one of those dresses that’ll still be pretty to wear after pregnancy, so I think it’s a keeper. The shoes are vintage from Bangkok and the bag is also vintage, but from Twenty here in Copenhagen
Last night Mr. Boyfriend and I went out to dinner at Nino e Franco (we had some celebrating to do). Here’s what I wore:
Dress: Vintage from Paper Dress Vintage in London (I’m wearing the same dress here)
Shoes: Second hand Micael Kors from (un) Fashion Vintage in Bangkok
I had the girls over last night for out usual little get-together with food, snacks and cocktails. I wore Lova jaquard dress from Monki – an extremely soft and comfortable dress. The boots are by Lola Ramona – I love the style, but they’re not as comfortable as the dress 😉
