Do you know those days when you wanna blog but there’s simply nothing to blog about? That’s what it’s been like in the past days. I feel like I’ve spent the past two weeks studying and writing essays. I terribly neglected my camera and pretty much everything creative and fun. I did finish knitting some Christmas presents but I can’t share them on here yet… after Christmas, I promise 🙂
Today I went to my local yarn store (only 5mins by bus… and it is HUGE and the people are really nice. I’ll miss it terribly when I’m back in Germany.) with my friend Katja who needed yarn for a pair of mittens and I couldn’t resist buying the Jane Austen knits magazine. The patterns are really unique and lovely and the pictures are nice, too. I can’t wait to read some of the articles 🙂
Last week we did a quick shoot of her very first knitting project: a hat 🙂
I’m so proud of her (she finished knitting her second hat today… learning how to knit + finishing two hats within one week? wow.) and it’s great to have a friend to spend evenings knitting and watching movies with 🙂
Other than that, there really isn’t anything noteworthy going on at the moment. We’ve had a tiny little bit of snow today, which made me really happy. Did I mention that I love snow? I probably did like a thousand times. Well, I hope you have a great weekend 🙂

    Yes, all the patterns are inspired either by the books or by the early 19th century. There are some real beauties in there and I can't wait knit one of the shawls. But I gotta finish all Christmas projects first…
