Sneak-a-peek to the sewing room

Here's a little video I made with my boyfriend. He operated the camera and I cut and put it together. It's a video to show one of my dresses coming together and to life in my sewing room.
Enjoy! :)

Recap: 2015 in pictures

Happy New Year! I hope your New Years celebrations were glamorous.
I spent the New Year in Stockholm with my boyfriend dancing lindy hop at the Snowball.

I thought I'd make a little compilation of the year 2015 with my most liked Instagram photos. So here you go:

I got to see the nature's beauty when visiting my grandparent's place in the north. It was super cold and everything was covered in frost that glimmered like tiny diamonds in the sun. I also witnessed an amazing display of northern lights here in my home town

I also of course did some knitting and sewing

As well as baking and cooking

I also had the best travel year so far traveling the world with my boyfriend. We did Prague in Czech Republic, Copenhagen in Denmark, Amsterdam in Netherlands and Washington DC, Cape May and Colorado in USA and spent the New Years eve in Stockholm,Sweden

I hope your year was at least as awesome as mine. May this year bring a lot of new adventures as well :)

Finished knit: Freya Shawl

The days are getting colder and colder here, but fortunately (apart from the day these pictures were taken) this autumn has been very sunny, which makes the changes in the amount of light much more bearable. The cold weathers always seem to inspire me to do some knitting. Handling those warm and fuzzy wool yarns just feels much cozier when the temperature starts to drop.

My wardrobe has been changing towards a warmer range of colors, which brings a new challenge of mixing and matching them with the older stuff. I recently purchased some new leather gloves in brown instead of black, which is what I would usually go for. So of course now I need matching accessories. 

I have bee dreaming of a big warm shawl to just wrap around me and now I had the perfect opportunity (excuse) to make one. When I saw this pattern on Ravelry, I knew I had to get one. 

I chose a light and fluffy mohair and wool blend yarn from Onion Knit. They had the perfect shade of brown for me: dark, chocolate-y brown, to go with my gloves. I got 4 skeins or 200g and that was just enough. All I had left was a 30cm strand of yarn. I had to finish a couple rows early, because I saw I was running out of yarn, but I think the pattern on the shawl looks just great nevertheless.

I found the beginning of the pattern rather easy, but as it got wider and wider, it got a little harder to keep up with the pattern. I would notice half way through a row I had made a mistake in the beginning, and when it takes you half an hour just to knit one row, you can imagine how frustrating that can be to have to go back. But all's well, ends well, I survived and now I have a lovely, fluffy and warm shawl to get me through the winter and bring a little bit of variety to my winter wardrobe.

You can get the pattern for free on Ravelry (registration required)
