I have thrown my green jacket in a corner… Something is wrong at the front, it is bubbly, and it makes me angry of course. I feel like a child and would like my mother to fix it. I do not want to rip up the seam (I am not sure of the terms here, is that how you say it in english?).
I also crochet, a necklace with a big oval black pendant in a typical victorian style. I have an idea but it is difficult to realize it, will the pendant end up to clumsy? I also need an oval glass, like a cabochon and I have been searching for it on the net but without any luck. I have tried with steampunk suppliers but no. I need help, do you know where to search?
It is a troublesome day. I need a jog.
After having crocheted a lot I decided to sew a jacket. Green and very tight with big buttons at the front. I cut the fabric some days ago and started to sew but something wasn’t right at the neck when I tried it out. Now it is very difficult to start all over again…
The fabric is very jugend, with an organic pattern. I use a pattern from Burda, 7182, but with some alternations at the front. I will not have any lapels but just a straight and strict edge.
We went to Bogesund, close to Vaxholm and the sea. For a few days now the first spring flowers are coloring the dry land in white and blue. Suddenly, this miracle is happening. I am just as fascinated every spring. When the snow is gone the land looks tired, dead and dirty. Then there is this massive explosion of life! Where does it hide? Where do the energy come from? And all this beauty! Deep in the forest, for whom to see? A beauty much greater than any human can understand, it is not for my happiness or for my pleasure. The beauty just is there, but why?
I have a cold and I am allergic to pollen. Spring is soon in full bloom and I am in a coma. But at the same time I am restless and I have so many crochet-ideas, so many models I would like to try out. It is a really bad state of mind…
First of all I would like to try to crochet a victorian inspired pendant and then I have a new yarn. Perhaps tomorrow.
The Burleskloppis, the flee market with a burlesque touch, was fun, warm and interesting. So many excentric personalities in one place! But it is very difficult to know what the customers would like to buy. This day my collars were popular, that was very surprising since the burlesque crowd is so much into the retro 50´s style. My collars are more turn of the century, victorian. But it was inspiring for me, since the collars are my personal favourites!
After plenty of mini crochet, jewels in silk tread such as earrings and finger rings, I have crocheted something completely different. A big, black, necklace in a truly victorian style. I will wear it on sunday when I sell my crochet at the flee market Burleskloppis in Stockholm. If anyone is interested I might sell it too…
I crochet in the linen tread Kalinka.
