JANUARY 2019 - outfit post

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Sorry for the little break, I'm just all over the place lately - I was finishing illustrations for new children's book, putting together my portfolio and attended book fair in Leipzig + we're travelling to Prague like every other weekend because of new appartment (not moving back to Prague, don't worry :D) and also playing D&D with my friends while we're there ♪

The spring is apparently here and so are allergies, so I decided to better stay at home to avoid red eyes and explosive sneezing, which means I have at least finally have time to write new blog post (✿◠‿◠) 

I have no idea how I managed to take photos of so many outfits in January, probably because this month have like 75 days instead of 31 ... or it at least felt like that :D 

My hair was dark blue/black the whole month, but at the end I got tired of it and removed it again... I say "remove" on purpose, because I didn't use bleach but the ColourB4 and even though it stinks like rotten eggs, it works great and I'm back to my natural hair colour ! (yeah, I know I'm crazy)

The first outfit celebrates my discovery how PERFECTLY my Sparkle cardigan goes with this Coldplay t-shirt :D neon colours ! Also mega-old earrings from some handmade fashion market in Prague... I still think they're cute and the yellow neon colour is just timeless :D

The second outfit is just something simple with striped tights I was wearing for our weekly (knitting) meet with Rommily :) Yeah, the denim skirt again ! I wanted to take advantage of travelling with public transport and not yet on bike and tried to wear skirts, dresses and tights as much as possible :D (Now I'm back to pants&leggins&bike already)

Next one is my "snow calamity" attire :D It was heavily snowing that day and there was like 1m of snow around Munich and I was about to leave for the meet-up with local illustrators, so I tried to put together something nice featuring my snow boots :) Ended up wearing this Psylo dress I bought in London and until now I was wearing it only in summer, but it prove itself being quite warm and comfy in winter as well ♪
Also I got a bit crazy with hair - I discovered AURORA earlier that day and instantly fell in love with everything about her and especially this hairstyle in "I went too far" video  ≧◉◡◉≦

And now something weird and comfy for our annual January sushi making at Rommily's place :) We always make A LOT of sushi and then just eat and talk and eat and drink a lot of green tea ♪
I don't wear this violet sweater as much as I would like to, so I tried to combine it with shirt and cullotes and also matching lipstick... it's a bit weird, but I also kinda like it :D

And the last one ! Wearing my knit, again... and new coat... and tried to braid hair on both sides ♪ Also Thranduil tote bag to give it more elf-ness :D

I hope you're all doing fine ♪
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Sparkle Cardigan

Hello, my dear readers ♥

... and here comes another knitting post ! One of my knitting resolutions for this year (and last year I probably said the same ) is to knit more cardigans, because I could really use some nice handmade, warm cardigans to wear with my 10 000 print t-shirts :D

Why start with something versatile, when you can make neon colour madness which doesn't go with anything? Well, I don't know, but I did it anyway !

Do you remember the sweater I made for my friend KK? The oversized blue/pink THING ? When I was ordering yarn for it from Lovespunning I also bought a few skeins for myself :3 I just couldn't resist the NEON ♥

And in September I finally found a use for them - the "Sparkle" Cardigan from my favourite Joji Locatelli ♪ The main impulse to cast this on was the start of Joji Fall KAL in which I always wanted to participate, but never had time to do it. So this year I finally did !

The knitting process was fun and easy and about a month later my own Sparkle cardigan was blocking and getting ready to be worn :3

As always, you can find the complete knitting info on my Ravelry project page 

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

DECEMBER 2018 - outfit post

Hi, my dear readers ♥

December was busy, dark & cold, so I didn't have much time to take photos of my outfits. That's why I have only two from this month :D So today's post will be quite short !

The first one is from the beginning of December, when I went for the 2nd anniversary of local ethical yarn shop RAUWERK ♥ part of the anniversary celebration was release of the new yarn and I had the honour to design the yarn tags and also tote bag prints ♥ It still feels quite surreal !

I was wearing my "Bare Branches" cardigan, because I made it from the first Rauwerk yarn, last year :) On photos you can also see my new broomstick Cleansweep Eleven !

The second outfit is very raven-themed (what a surprise ha ha) ! I dyed my hair dark blue-ish and it ended up looking a bit like raven feathers, so I just had to wear it with my new t-shirt from The Raven from The North (raven again!) and Ravenous leggins from Black Milk :D I LOVE RAVENS, OK 

I managed to have the dark hair for two months only, because I got tired of re-dyeing it and now I'm back to my natural colour again (yeah, I'm crazy, I know)

I also purchased this Lumos charity pin of Newt Scamander's wand and Occamy ♥

Well, that was really short :D
Have a great day, everyone ♥

Westknits Mystery Knit Along 2018 - Texture Time

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Same as the past two years, I took part in the legendary mystery knit along organized by Stephen West ♥ This year was super-mysterious - Stephen promised some completely new technique and also there were 4 fingering weight yarns + 1 mohair !

I decided to start with the dark violet and green/violet skeins I already had at home and then added the light violet and the copper/gold one as the main contrasting colour. As for the mohair - I expected it to be light-green, but it ended up being blue and white changing colour :D (but it looks great in the ends, so damage done !)

It all started with wavy brioche using all colours at once, then continued with "squiggles" and new Latvian Braids and ended up with two wavy wings :D Every week you had to make not only one, but two identical sides of the shawl which ended up with almost everyone being behind "the schedule" and a lot of people abandoning it completely, but I somehow managed to be just a bit late and finished the whole THING on time :)

And I LOVE IT ! I know a lot of knitters were complaining that it's hard to wear, but I was wearing it quite a lot in winter ♥ It's huge and cozy and keeps me away from cold ♪

We took some photos on a walk through Dachau, with a flock of goats watching us from the nearby garden :D ha ha

I feel mega-honoured that Stephen likes my version so much that he featured my photo on the main pattern page on Ravelry !!! ❀◕ ‿ ◕❀ (I'm a big Stephen West fan so this means A LOT for me aaaa ♥)

There was optional bubble edge to the shawl, but I didn't have enough yarn to do it... and also the shawl is HUGE enough, think :D

I hope you're all doing fine ♥
Have a great day, everyone !

NOVEMBER 2018 - outfit post

Hi, my dear readers ♥

November was the most potterhead month of the whole 2018 !
I'm usually wearing some small Potter accessories through the whole year, but this November it apparently got out of hand, because all outfit photos I took are Potter-themed :D I went to see Crimes of Grindelwald three times, I got done the first part of my new Sirius Black tattoo and overally was in the biggest mood to wear EVERYTHING Hogwarts-themed I have at home :D 

I know there are a lot of mixed emotion about the movie, but mine are mostly positive. I really enjoyed this one, I like the characters more and more, I'm super-curious about the whole plot and I got obsessed with the whole Grindelwald/Dumbledore #grindeldore relationship (◔◡◔)♥

SO,  here's the first one - an outfit I wore for the movie premiere.
I went on my own for the first screening of the day, so I put on pants instead of the short school uniform skirt and ended up looking like Teddy Lupin :D no problem with that !

The second one was when we went to cinema with my friends ♪ I felt like Sabrina with that headband :D but I really like this classic school uniform look !

The third one is my Marauders-fangirl attire ♥ And you can also see my new tattoo - from now on Sirius is mine FOREVER (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

And the last one is super-casual and comfy outfit with some HP accessories :D like new Fantastic Beasts socks and Deathly Hallows pin I got as a gift from my friend ♪ Also you can see my new shoes I bough at warehouse sale of local sport-stuff shop :) (I couldn't resist the colour !)

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
