Reyna & Mystery Socks

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I managed to finish quite a lot of knitting projects in April, probably because I didn't have proper internet connection =D

The first one is Reyna shawl - pattern by Noora Laivola, which was a KAL (knit along) of Vlněné Sestry, I decided to participate even though I didn't have time to buy a yarn from VS (if I did I could win a voucher). 
So I bought a beautiful Malabrigo Sock in Lotus colorway in an amazing yarn shop Die Mercerie and made this simple, but nice shawl for my mum's birthday ♪





I highly recommend this pattern for all beginners, because it's really easy, fun to knit and you need just one skein of Malabrigo Sock... or any other Sock weight yarn which has more than 340cm =)

The second April project were socks !
Sock knitting was a topic of the month on Czech FB knitting group and I decided to make a pair as well... this time some fancy pattern =D
I chose Mystery Sock '09 by Kirsten Kapur and bought a nice orange yarn from Wolle Rödel ♪
It looked pretty complicated at the beginning, but then I got into it and it was actually pretty easy to knit =D 
I´m so happy about the result !




Some people asked me if it's not a waste of time to make such a pretty pair of socks and then wear them only at home...
...and I was like: "Who says I'm going to wear them at home ?" =D
Here's an outfit !




 Koblížek necklace by Saki's Forestglade Jewelry

this is what's really happening when I'm taking outfit photos =D

best socks ever !

Currently I'm working on "Spark of Grey" shawl by Melanie Berg and I just finished Han's 
speaking about dear Han - she has a new super-cool website about knitting, crochet, spinning, yarn, sheep,...and much more =D TAKE A LOOK !

DIY harem pants + botanical garden

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Today I want show you two things - first - a pair of DIY harem pants I made from a tie-dyed fabric and second - some pretty photos I took in Nymphenburg botanical garden ♥

Let's start with these pants !
When I was tie-dyeing last time I added in the cauldron big piece of grey cotton fabric which I bought for lolita skirts, but then I found out it has stains so it was useless for that purpose... I had no idea what will I made of it, until few months later I stumbled upon this simple pattern on Pinterest ♪

https://cz.pinterest.com/pin/434597432767166501/
I didn't have enough fabric for the belt, so I just made a small tunnel for a thin elastic band on top of pants =) I also had some problems with holes for feet, but nah...somehow I made it and it's fine =D ha ha
I'm really happy with the result ♥
They're super-comfy and match perfectly with mori outfits !





I wore this on one of the few beautiful May days. We decided to visit botanical garden of Nymphenburg castle, which is just a few kilometers on bike from our new home ♪
The garden is beautiful ! Even though there is no japanese corner... BUT instead there is an Alpine rock-garden which makes my mountains-loving heart happy ♥

We were there just on time for blooming tulips *o* SO MANY COLOURS ! (I took a lot of photos with my lomo ...)









I hope you're all enjoying summer !
It's finally warm in Bayern wheeeeee *o*

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

LOMO 08

Hi, my dear readers ♥

After some time my lomography photos are back again ♪
This film has some really nostalgic photos for me... homes where are not living in anymore, summer memories from the last year and beautiful autumn trees ...



These two photos are really special - the last pictures I took in a place where I grew up and lived for more than 20 years of my life, few moths before my parents sold it... the first photo is view from my room and the second one is a kitchen window...




Befreiungshalle Kelheim ...our first adventure from last summer ♪ 
(I desperetaly need to go on a hike, hopefuly the weather will finally start to act like summer >_<)


Mountains, Gandalf ! Mountains ! ♥





This photo is like a vision from my mind which I've been returning to from time to time when I need to calm my thoughts...
I remember when I was standing there I though "this is the most beautiful place I've ever been to in my whole life" it's like something from my dreams...really =D I love mountains so damn much ♥



these three look like old postcards =)


...and autumn memories from Ingolstadt ♪
(the path I was walking everyday with my dog... *NOSTALGIA AGAIN*)




Now that I look at these photos I see how much changed in the past year !
I don't mind, changes are good, because there is always something new awaiting ♪

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

STROKE

Hi, my dear readers ♥

The thing I probably missed the most in Ingolstadt was art. There was an art gallery, but I never really visited it because...I don't know...it wasn't interresting at all... but here in Munich *o* we could go in galleries every weekend and won't manage to see everything !

The first art-related event we visited was STROKE. I saw a poster near our house, but what really convinced me to go there was a recommendation from owner of this tiny little PlazmaLab shop where I'm leaving my money everytime I step inside =D He told me that there will be various art groups presenting their works with PlazmaLab among them ♪ Sounds cool !

The even took place at Praterinsel, which is a small island on the river not far away from the city centre. There is a complex of old warehouses and a "city beach" bar...
Some rooms are quite small so it was a bit overcrowded, but still it was comfortable and works of featured art groups matched perfectly with the atmosphere of the place.

I was really happy that we gave it a try, because most of the works were exactly my kind of aesthetics ♥


 ♥ ♥ ♥ originals from Miss Van ♥ ♥ ♥ now that I think about it, maybe I should spent all my money and buy one ...??? I've been admiring her art for years ! 




 "please respect the vandalism"


 (in the upper right corner of the photo - one more original from Miss Van ♥)


 Satan !



Aperol Spritz is our tradition every time we go out =D

there were artist painting outside and this one with snakes was my favourite  ♥


Every artist had small prints for sale and there was also a Boesner room with a lot of art supplies ♪ here's my loot !


After we left the Praterinsel we strolled around a bit more, to explore new parts of Munich and found this amazing house covered in blooming Wisteria *o*
There was a cute French restaurant, so we decided have a Crème brûlée - it was absolutely delicious ♥



nom nom


Since I knew about this event thanks to PlazmaLab, I decided to wear the piece I bought there last time ♥
In this outfit I felt like a sith lord who went to see some art =D ha ha
