Pinakothek der Moderne

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I'm back after Easter holidays and some nasty Windows update which stole all letters from my computer, so I couldn't write anything :D We successfully got rid of it and now I hope it won't install itself again before I'm finished with this post, or something like that ...

In March we did another from our Sunday museum outings and this time we picked something bigger - museum of modern art/architecture/furniture - everything !
Pinakothek der Moderne

The place is sooo pretty ! I love modern architecture with all these huge glass windows and wide stairs and a lot of concrete, fresh air and bright daylight everywhere *o*

Seeing the evolution of computers or German furniture design was amazing (remember how we visited school of Bauhaus in Dessau? I'm still into this stuff ♥) !
While on the second floor were displayed all kinds of beautiful and freeky modern art from Warhol, Picasso, Magritte, and much more *___* whee heaven !




 (this is a chair *o*)



 aww ♥

jewellery room






 this instalation consisted of two rooms full of ...everything glued together with duct tape, decorated with Nietzsche's quotes and occasional old-school porn pictures ...



For the occassion I was wearing something less natural and went for a two-coloured outfit with repeating pattern (I almost never wear such outfits, because I don't have enough clothing and accessories anymore :D) ♥

Also please take a close look at my AMAZING KNITTING BROOCH handmade by super-talented CZBATERKA ♥♥♥

I made this "inverted" cardigan, remember :D? It's crochet !







Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Acrylic Monster

Hi, my dear readers ♥

At some point of every knitter's life, we all realize that there is a huge box full of ugly acrylic yarn we bought at the beginning of our knitting journey..
...it's there...somewhere hidden... full of colours, which are not that bad, but THE MATERIAL oh, how ugly it is in comparisson with your lovely stash of Malabrigos, soft bamboos and top-quality handspuns ...
But at the same time you just can't throw it away !
Well, you can give it to someone for learning or kids for crafting, but I don't have anyone like this around me so I decided to make a big, ugly, acrylic sweater :D ha !

I found a super-simple pattern in Rebecca magazine (it's basically just two rectangles and two very easy sleeves attached to them) and dived into my acrylic stash immedatly... and after a while I emerged with this choice of colours - grey, darker grey and POP OF NEON ! Stephen woud be proud

I know now you probably made the "uuugh" sound but wait ! It's great ! I wanted sweater in these colours for a while now :D And it actually ended up looking exactly like I wanted - oversized, comfy sweater which matches with everything, but at the same time it's not simple :)

When I casted this on, I planned to wear it at home only, but it looks so cool that I actually wear it quite often with regular clothes :D

For the photos I decided to go a bit wilder than usual and embraced my inner Uchuu-kei self ♪
("Uchuu kei is a Japanese fashion that takes inspiration from the 90s and space; "Uchuu" means space in Japanese! Sparkly space fashion~" source Uchuu kei FB)

Seriously, I want to be 16 again and run around in space outfits with pink-colored hair in buns, alien backpack and big platform boots *o* 



 I made the neck a bit smaller later, because this was too much... and now it's a bit too small, so I'll have to modify it again :D ha ha 

 Behold my amazing bubble-foil Cyberdog tote bag !



 I want to wear make-up like this every day !


taking photos with Satan


I hope you're all doing fine ♪
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

CreativMesse München 2017

Hi, my dear readers ♥

In February we decided to visit CreativMesse (creative fair) in Munich together with Rommily and Mina :) We planned to go there last year already, but I was still living in Ingostadt back then and since we had no idea if it's good or bad, we somehow skipped it :D

But this year it's much closer to where I live, so I decided that we will give it a try. The entry wasn't expensive and at least we had a reason to meet :)

As I said we had no idea what to expect... is there going to be something for sale? Or just people showing their creations? Or only these funny-looking workshops (like "making of müsli spoons from clay" ?!! :D) ...and the most important question IS THERE GOING TO BE YARN FOR SALE ?
Just to be sure, we took enough money with us... 

AND WE DID THE RIGHT THING

whoa ! There was so many great things to buy *o* 
At the beginning we were like "well, maybe later, I'll come back for this" and then it was only "OK, buying this and that and this one too !"

The place was really nice, huge with good light and fresh air and everyone was so kind ! It was great to be among the same crafting freaks like me :D

Surely the best were stands with yarn, one in particual - Tausendschön - which had AMAZING HAND-DYED YARN and we kinda left most of our money there :D ha ha

Just look at this ♥




(the sticker says "knitting is the new yoga")

I was taking photos just with my phone, so they're not the best quality, but at least you can see the atmosphere and some interesting things I found there ♪


 knitting grandpa !




 THERE WAS SO MANY AMAZING FABRICS

 ... and so many stamps !
But I forgot to take photo of my favourite shop T_T

GLUTEN FREE NOMS ♥


Of course I had to dress up a bit :)
I think mori with hand-knitted scarf fits quite well in the crafting enviroment.





(I got a new tattoo and it grew much bigger since February ♪)

AND MY LOOT !

yarn from Tausendschön, KnitPro shawl pin and funny knitting postcards ♥

I'm already working on shawl from the "blueberry yogurt" one and the mint green 

 beautiful pendants from cute stand from Holland

Hand Letterning excercise book from Frau Annika - I'll finally learn it ! 

The cutest stamps from Sommerabend ♥
the owner is super-kind young woman who is making all these tiny little stamps on her own ! Everything is hand-carved and designed by her *o*
I came back for more stamps when we were leaving and I got one as gift, because I was returning customer :D I got these which you can see on the business card - epic fail (for my art :D), toadstool, acorn, sewing "handgemach" machine, teapot and the little heart

I also bought a pack full of gifts for Han, but she already has them in her possession so you'll have check her Instagram to see it ;)


Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
