sofa so good

I think this is great! I can imagine the creator, Lynn Garrett of Biscuit Scout, just sitting there knitting away on her armchair and before she knows it she's covered the whole thing.

The Socks

A year and a half ago I decided to knit a pair of socks, probably a bit complicated for my first proper knitting project, especially using four needles as they are driving me mad!

A year and a half on I have a glorified ankle warmer, much to the amusement of my boyfriend who see's the socks as another example of something I've said I'll do but never quite finish! As my target completion date of xmas came and went and they weren't on my feet as planned so if I keep charting the progress on here it might give me the boot up the bottom that I need to get it done.

So when he mockingly asks me "How's the socks getting on?" I can say have a look for yourself!

tea please

Anthropologie has to be one of my favorite websites to browse through, this cardi looks so cosy, and since winter is not showing any sign of letting up I may have to invest. I like the contrasting knit detail it makes it look quite expensive. As for the light :) I love this, it looks really pretty all lit up.

Black Swan

I'm so excited about going to see Black Swan on friday, anything with Natalie Portman, ballet and Vincent Cassel has to be a good. Not least the posters, I LOVE them, I've all ready ordered one for my room! They are just so different to anything i 've seen for a long time, a step away from the airbrushed actors and formulaic design, toward a really creative partnership between the film and its advertising. The posters are by british deisgn firm LeBoca who do a lot of deisgn work for the film, music and fashion industries.
