Émeraude


Ruby has eyes that sparkle like emeralds. Or sapphires. Not too sure what color her eyes are, because I try to avoid eye contact with murder suspects—especially if they are sexy.

May the last Sunday Summary be my witness, I'm absolutely obsessed with the square. There's something inspiring and relaxing about the shape of a square and the way I can create one. By far the best skill I've learned this year! Or even maybe in years...

I've just finished my first steps into square-land with a cropped jumper in blue/white (snippets of it you can see over on my Instagram). And now I'm already diving into the next! With a little side break by making a crochet shawl in a purple-ish colour (also to be seen on my Instagram. Instagram is pretty much where it's all at). As you can see, my newest project is green.


I'm absolutely in love with the colour of this yarn. For the curious: it's the Phildar Impact 3,5 in Sapin. I mean, if my Christmas tree -if I had a Christmas tree in the first place- would look as beautifully green as this one, my house would've been filled with them! If I had a house naturally...


Anyway. I've noticed btw that anyway has become this staple word of mine when I'm rambling and want to carry on to another subject -which is mildly related to the subject discussed earlier. Or not.- but when I ran out of clever words to say (or type in this case) to make the lines between those two subjects 'easier', I use the word 'anyway' and all my problems will be solved. Anyway, I'd personally would've called it Emerald (Émeraude in French -since Phildar is a French brand and give their yarn French names. Although, in that case Sapin might be an easier word to pronounce. I don't even think I know how to pronounce émeraude... Luckily I don't have to in this case).

I hope to be able to show y'all the end result of this rather 'I don't know what I'm doing'-project soon(ish). It's going to be a cardigan. Or at least, I hope it's going to be a cardigan. I'll keep you posted on the progress...


Yesterday I strolled through Amsterdam with an old friend of mine (with whom I hadn't spoken with in about a year or so. Maybe even longer). I didn't get much (mostly fancy magazines. I love fancy magazines), but I thought -in combination with some other things I got last month- to make a little haul video. I'm trying to get better at making videos. I've noticed that most of my mistakes are 1) I don't have a clue what I'm doing related, 2) What am I actually doing related and 3) I move the camera too much and have no f*cking idea what I'm doing related. However, I'd (naturally) recommend all the interested to go and check it out! [click here] It's better than the last one, I promise! Although, don't hold it against me if it isn't. No refunds!

Love,
Dominique
