I Have A Fashion Crush on Snow White 05/04/2012
I haven't decided yet whether I like ABC's Once Upon a Time. Given that I obsessively watched 18 episodes in 2 days because I just couldn't stop, you'd think I would have made up my mind, but I still have this sneaking suspicion that, unless Jane Espenson happens to be writing the episode, it's terrible. What I do know is that I'm loving the Winter in Maine/Storybook Land fashion inspiration. It makes me want to gad about in the snow wearing all white with impossibly rosy cheeks and maybe take up archery... Viz:
I've been feeling all week like my body was mad at me for drinking too much wine & not eating enough broccoli, so last night I threw together this bowl of virtue & deliciousness. I ate the leftovers for lunch today and already I feel healthier than I did 24 hours ago. It's quick, really filling & totally guilt-(& carb)-free. Yum
Simple Staple (Sublime) Seed Stitch Scarf 03/04/2012
I've had four balls of Sublime's Cashmere Merino Silk Dk knocking around for a while and I knew I wanted to make a scarf to replace my 'old faithful' - a pale grey cashmere scarf from Uniqlo that I lost in a break-up (with a guy not worth anything near the £30 the scarf cost to buy). Trouble was, I just couldn't find the right pattern.
I started this project about 6 times - in lace, small ribs, even an ill-advised attempt at blocks of different stitch patterns. What a disaster.
I cook, I knit, I teach, I read, I rant. Thanks for visiting the Disappointed House.
