slowly getting back to everything… …designing a garment that I would love to wear myself and working with beautiful, natural quality yarn!
…taking the time to enjoy every step…
…all of that while enjoying nice things around me on my overflowing desk… 😊

it’s out!
The Menage à Trois shawl is on Ravelry!

Thanks to @naturesluxury for sponsoring their beautiful yarn for this project and of course to all the incredible and wonderful testers, that made it possible to provide you all with usable instructions to this project … 🤩 (read more about it on my blog - link is in profile)

Today one of my toy-children visited me again with eye problems (it seems that the safety eyes for toys, especially made for small kids, are not really THAT safe!) 🙄
After discussing all the options with the little owner, we opted for small black buttons. The joy and happiness, that Elefantino could see again (and got a bit of plastic surgery here and there), was immense! 🤩
It really is a rewarding thing to make toys for our loved (little) ones… I wish I’d have more time for it!

Last breakfast in Edinburgh... in my very own tradition: Chocolate Abyss tea and Eggs Benedict with salmon at my beloved window seat!
It was (as always with this city) a very unique and cathartic experience... I always have left Scotland a very different person with answers in my pocket. Answers to questions I didn‘t know concretely or dared to even pose.
It’s like this city knows!!!!
One just has to listen carefully... ...

Et là voilà !!!
Thank you so much Marnie for the wonderful haircut and for listening to my constant rambling....
My head feels so much lighter now and I am super happy!

After more than 3 years I finally decided that I need to change my hair! Thankfully Scots are super cool and there wasn’t a problem with me popping in without an appointment!
Let’s see what will come out of it...

...More and new pigments can be found here.... perfectly laid out because of the nice brushes, of course!
No need to ask about the guy in this frame... tomorrow there will be a new one - in other pigments for us to admire!
So make sure to come back again and to purchase all of them... (and did I tell you how excited I am? Well... I.... maybe)

Never mind about the model or the painter... look at the pigments!
These pigments have been carefully sourced and are one of a kind and truly worth their weight in gold (even if there are many other similar ones on the market) - but never mind about that either!

I am very excited about this painting! It has been worked in all these incredible colours and brushes... all super soft and squishy... and bright of course!

I also had my share yesterday in consumerism and non-minimalism... but I tried to invest more consciously in “honest yarn”, as a lovely friend called it aptly!
There was quite a lot of this kind to be found these last days: Not necessarily at the shiny front of the battle, but (still) there... not too far off: Hidden beside the limelight ones... My choice is by no means representative, but you can see that I found another great Scandinavian yarn #rauma and yarn from the wonderful small US farm #pradodelana.
The first one I got in the really beautiful shop that #ysolda had inside of EYF (together with the nice tote bag and the needle-size thingy you see in the pic).
Oh... and there also was this cute project bag by #lacerisesurlegateau in powder pink!
