September and October are probably my two favourite months of the year. I love September because although it gets chillier and chillier pretty fast, you still get some beautiful sunny days for you to enjoy 🙂 I love October because the whole nature starts changing its colours and on the 14th it is my birthday… so yay for presents!
I had to leave my crochet obsession on the side for a while. I think I needed a change, so I turned to knitting! 🙂 I don’t think I am a very talented knitter, but I do enjoy it from time to time.
I started last sunday a fingerless mittens project. Pattern is Graffiti on the Metro, by Kimberie Pettit. I had another pattern in mind, but my gauge wasn’t matching and I was too lazy to do the maths by myself. I have completed one mitt so far, so expect pictures soon! I used a self striping yarn that I found at my mum’s place, which unluckily isn’t “striping” as much as I had wished, but it’s 100% wool, so it should be warm 🙂
As I said, by bday is approaching, so I already got me my present for myself! It’s a super cool 100% wool purple yarn! I am thinking of making a pullover, maybe with cables?? I also would like to knit a dress though, so maybe a looooong pullover? I still haven’t found the right inspiration, so if you have suggestions just let me know!
The weather was so nice yesterday that my bf and I decided to go to see some lakes here nearby 🙂 I have been living here for 20 years and I didn’t even know that they existed, can you believe that? We arrived at sundown and the scenery was extremely beautiful…
I love this second picture because the reflex on the water looks like Japanese Mount Fuji, ehehe
The city I live in, Monza, hosts a Royal Palace, which was actually used as the King’s holiday house during the 19th and 20th Century, until the end of WW2. The palace was then used for expositions until the late 1980’s, when it was closed and literally left to rotten becaus of lack of funds, I suppose.
Luckily three years ago they started renovating it and it was officially re-opened last week, so I had the chance to see it for the first time in my life… it was so exciting! It felt like being on holiday for a couple of hours, I couldn’t believe we had such a hidden treasure in our town.
Here are some pics… taken with my phone, so sorry for the poor quality!
