Song of the Day - Burn Fast

Pretty sure Sundays are made for moody songs. So today, let it burn.


What I Wore - New Cowl

I've been on a bit of a knit binge recently. Not only have I been knitting a lot, but I've also been wearing a lot of knit pieces. It's been a while since I've posted a 'What I Wore' so here's an outfit that includes my latest cowl.


Just Finished - Blue Cascade Sweater

Once again I've been lagging behind so the use of the word "just" isn't quite fair. But anyhow I'm getting around to showing off my new sweater. I found the fabric for this sweater at one of my favourite second hand shops and really loved the texture it had in the stripes. It keeps the fabric from being boring dark blue cotton. I knew right away that I wanted to make a sweater out of it.

I've used this McCall's pattern multiple times already (here, here, and here) but this is the first time I've used a different version of the pattern. I did make the front pieces less wide because I didn't want it to hang as low as the pattern was designed. Other than that I also added the brighter blue bias tape for a little more visual interest and made a quick belt in case I wanted to wear it closed. With the ridiculously cold weather we've been having I've gotten more than my fair wear out of this. 


Song of the Day - Wild Horses

I'm a sucker for a punchy beat and a gal with a nice voice.

Finished - Striped Winter Coat

As someone who has always lived somewhere that has cold winters, I have a special place in my heart for a winter coat. Considering for a large chunk of the year all anyone sees is your coat, I'm a big believer in having a few to wear. It's taken couple of weeks to share but here's a look at my newest coat. 


Just Finished - Blue Knit Cowl

After finishing my recent hat I decided it would be nice to have a matching scarf. What I really wanted was to knit something quick and easy, hence this cowl. 


Song of the Day - Slaves

Who doesn't what to listen to moody music on a Wednesday? Don't worry I'm here for you.

Finished - Knit Hat

Don't mind me; I'm busy keeping myself warm while knitting away. Technically this isn't even yarn but it's thick enough to keep my head extra toasty. 


Finished - Matelasse Shawl Collar Blazer

Since I've been slacking in the blogging department I've never gotten around to showing you my newest blazer. My first post of 2016 is a project from 2015 I never got around to posting.  If you follow my Instagram then you know it doesn't actually fit into the Just Finished category (so here's a new category... just "finished") but what the heck, here it is!
