Really nice

Yesterday was really nice. Altough I do feel at least 3 pounds bigger after all the food we ate at an Easter table, I’m also really happy we got to spend such a nice time together. At the beginning of this month Marcin changed his job and resigned from teaching, so the obvious perk of lots of vacations has dissapeared. Now it really is just me, kids, knitting, cleaning for most of the day, so we try to do our best we we are together.

Hope you are also having a wonderful time <3

Awesome FOs: Carabe by JennEmerson

I love matching colors together and the more surprising combo I get, the more excited I am. I love blue paired with green, pink with turquoise, gray with orange… The possibilities are endless. Last year I made Carabe, which is a sweater created for everyone to have fun mixing colors.

There are many beautiful Carabe’s made by talented knitters around the world and I love them all, however, Jenn’s Carabe is my personal fav. It’s so subtle and the colors Jenn paired together are truly maginificent. Look at that shade of blue (though most men would probably call it green :-) on the gray background. Just gorgoeus! I’m sure that if I was to make the sweater again, Jenn would be my inspiration.

Happy Birthday!

I still remember when I took Aga’s photo with her brother. It was  immediately after coming back home from hospital. She was so tiny then. And all of a sudden Wojtek seemed so big. It was two years ago.

 Last week my baby girl turned two and she’s not a little baby anymore.

Happy birthday Aga!
