I love knitting. My mom taught me how when I was about 8 or 9, but I promptly forgot the hobby and continued on in my life. In my first year of university, about 5 years ago, I picked up the needles again and have been knitting ever since. Over time, I've gone through various phases of knitting certain items - first it was mittens, then hats, then socks and now lacey kerchief scarves. I'm especially proud of being able to come up with new patterns for these kerchiefs; it is so satisfying to knit up something that you visualized and have it work out well. I was lucky enough to find a lovely group of ladies who also enjoy knitting to share a weekly knitting night with at a local bar and that night happens to be tonight! My current work in progress is featured below. I know it looks like a pile of yarn barf right now, but I can assure you that when it is finished it will be a beautiful French-inspired kerchief.
Today's outfit is very simple, but one of my favourites. I love this dress because it is so simple to throw on, yet looks very flattering. The dress reminds me of something a housewife in the 1950s would wear, which gives it a lady-like quality.
