I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.







Nonsense, Mr Lamp is NOT for sale, he is merely supervising the stall while I get a burrito.

The rest of the 6 pairs of shoes are, though. While I was moving into my new apartment I realised how many shoes I adopted just to make them orphans in my own closet. So here they all are, looking at you with droopy eyes, how could you resist!?

I bought an electronic blanket a few days ago and MY GOODNESS does it beckon me to bed, all day. For the past week that my heater didn’t work and the nights were getting so cold I couldn’t fall asleep till 3am, going to bed was a nuisance. Now work is a nuisance, school’s a nuisance, all life outside the bed is a nuisance. URG. I started this blogging deal 3 hours ago and every 5 minutes I’ve been zoning out into the direction of the bed imaging stupid things like if I die in my sleep with the heating still on would I be cooked raw, medium or well done before someone finds my body.
There, I’ve just gone and stroked the warm underbelly of the duvet for nothing more than pleasure’s sake, and I’m afraid I must go now, goodbye.

You’ll need:
A selection of yarn (Mohair 50%+) with colours and density of own choice, Needle size 15mm, 10mm, 6mm; Tape ruler, knitter’s needle.

Using the darkest yarn, cast on 60 stitches with the 6mm needle. Knit in stocking stitch 8 rows.

Occasionally change colours while alternating between 10mm and 15mm needles between rows to create an uneven knit look. Keep knitting until it reaches a length you desire the shawl to be.

Bind off work. Repeat from beginning for the other side.

Stitch two together with black yarn.

As seen in Vogue Girl Korea November 2009 issue

Tips and caring advices:

  • If you’re an experienced knitter, it’d be best if you could do a tension swatch for the yarn before casting on.
  • For beginners check out this youtube channel for great tutorials. Great place to start learning actually.
  • Alternate between colours but also thickness of yarns. I just stuck to mohair but you could always bring in different types of yarns like acrylic or other wool blends to create texture.
  • Hand wash only, dry flat.

(Gmarket tutorial

What a week. First, my dissertation decides to kick my ass (and many others, since we art students understand deadline as something you paint over or photoshop till it looks like it’s something with every other meaning but the original), and then my laptop catches a cold and I end up having to format the retard and reinstall Windows and every other program back to normal circulation.

Luckily I backed everything up before the format. Except of course the browser bookmarks. Always forget to export bookmarks. And fonts. Although after formatting my hard-drive every other week since I was 17, (I was an uber tech geek until my braces came off and I started to resemble a female) I learnt to back up the font files the first thing before anything else. Fonts to aspiring designers are like marbles to the brain, straps and buckles to shoes.

Anyway, I’m back on track now; do expect an avalanche of posts for the coming few days since I have so much to show and tell. Hope you’ve all been well.
