purple rib scarf

i was thinking of a special scarf for some time… had a look at many shops but i didn’t find what i had in mind. but hey, i’m knitter, right?! so i just knit my dream scarf myself. 🙂

the idea: a long, wide, ribbed purple scarf with fringe!

so i got some yarn at ebay, 600g of austermann mombasa (100% cotton, 100m/50g)…

…and started with a very easy pattern. co 89 st, then k3, p3 aaaaaall the way until the scarf is about 2m long… which will take forever… but anyway 😉

iRock – ipod cozy

felt it was time for a new ipod cozy… i got bored with my old, ugly rubber one and don’t like just tossing my beauty in my bags… so i came up with this rocking little cozy 😉

unfortunately i found out that felt isn’t great to stencil on. due to the texture of the fabric the paint soaks under the stencil a little.

but anyway: it’s pink, it’s stencil, it’s rock’n’roll!

i thought about making a whole bunch of these and sell them on etsy/dawanda shop. in all kinds of colours and with all kinds of messages… iRock, iPop, myPod, iDance,….

what do you think?! 🙂

new look

today i invested a few dollars for the wordpress css extension. now i can modify the css of my blog *yippeee*

you can either build the site’s css from scratch or – as i did – use a design as basis and modify what you like.

i quite like the „misty“ design, so i used that and basically changed the width of the content block, the link colours and the headline image…so far so good.

let’s see what i come up with next. possibilites are (well, almost) endless! 🙂
