August 2019

August has come and gone and it’s time for another monthly round up.

Knitting
In August I’ve finished the sample for the Stripy Cuddle Sweater that I’ve design in collaboration with Kokon Yarn for their new chunky mohair yarn. Next week there will be the pre-launch for the pattern, but the real release will be in October (by the way, I’m still looking for knitters to test a couple of sizes). I’ve almost finished the second sample and this yarn is so soft, like a cloud.
During this month I’ve also worked on some swatches for new designs for the Autumn/Winter. I want to make a blog post all about this process.

Readings
- Things the Grandchildren Should Know, Mark Oliver Everett
- The Flatshare, Beth O’Leary
- The Perfect Nanny, Leila Slimani, Sam Taylor (translator)
- Nevernight, Jay Kristoff (audiobook)

Podcast
This month I’ve been listening to many episodes of The Moth, it’s a beautiful podcast, lots of stories will make you laugh, but many other will make you cry, it’s the perfect combination.

Day Trip
In August I’ve made two day trips. One in the mountains, of which you can see all the pictures and the video from that day on my blog.
The second one was in my hometown. I went with some friends to show them some odd places from where I grew up. As usual I took many pictures and there is also some footage from that day, but another similar trip is already planned for the end of September and I’ve thought that maybe it could be nice to see the same places in Summer and at the start of Autumn.



Pin for later
