This is beautiful! Three years of the sun in three minutes.
How fantastic are these jumpers/sweatshirts?!! I have a soft spot for the wallpaper floral design, but I’m also having fantasies of wearing the cupcakes to the gym! (… not that I go to the gym, but you know, maybe stand outside on the street like in that Simpsons bit.)
John has a not-so-secret love of gummybears, specifically these ones.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an occasion such as a birthday that would warrant the purchase of a Gummybear sweatshirt? Oh wait, we have a birthday next month? :)
If I’m ever going to get some knits for me started I really need to knock off a few wips!
First up for this week is getting Chicane finished for John. It’s all seamed, the zipper purchased (doubting the colour now though… I think it needs to be darker), right now I’m knitting the ribbed neck and if all goes well I should have that finished and the front edges neatened by a crocheted edge by the end of the weekend.
Once the (possibly newly purchased on Monday) zipper is basted in I will have my first experience with sewing in a zipper to one of my handknits! I’ve never put a zipper in to a knitted item so I’m excited – if I can steek then this is a walk in the park :)
Then I’ll be right on to finishing Kiki’s Baby Sweater On Two Needles (February), I started this while I was still pregnant but stopped once I realised it was big enough for at least a 6 month old…. Well guess what? She’s 8 months old now and I still haven’t returned to it!
It’s lace. It’ll stretch :) The colour is gorgeous and the pattern is cute, I’m considering some sweet little pearl buttons and a matching hat in the left over Alpaca Silk Georgette (in Sprig, my most favourite yarn + colour! for projects for myself).
Less talking about it and more actually doing it! That’s been my motto for this past week – so far so good!
Have a happy weekend :)
I don’t know why, but I find instructional videos created from this point of view so strangely hypnotic, mesmerising! As mentioned before :)
Exercise in musical cooperation
Every spring, an interactive installation takes over a high-traffic area in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles and sets a collective ritual. The installation offers a fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the notion that we can achieve more together than separately.
The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation.
The project stimulates ownership of the public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.
A traveling version of the project is currently being made for these collective moments to spread around the world.
I would be so excited to see this project! Fingers crossed it makes it’s way to Australia!
