happy halloween...?

photo taken two seconds after oliver "jumped" (he doesn't know how to get his feet off the ground yet ;) into my face resulting in a split lip and splitting headache (see what i did there?). it's ok, it's funny now, especially the part where we never really got a good picture in his costume this year, oops. if you can't tell, he was a happy lil cloud with ribbon rain and i made it with the intention of turning it into a pillow for his room afterwards. yay instant costume re-use!

hope everyone had a fun halloween eating all the sweet treats your heart desires! (i don't mind that halloween isn't celebrated in denmark but man, i really miss those mini candy bars)

wool and the gang tartan

during the chilly winter months, my time spent knitting definitely increases. it's such a cozy and easy way to relax. i've always loved the chunky wool and the gang knitted projects but this season i'm really drawn to their tartan collection. someone pointed out my ravelry queue is quite long (it's not really a queue so much as a list of bookmarks) but i think i need to add a tartan project on there for this winter, the knitted designs turn out so fun!

secret holiday

i LOVE this simple "it's ok" affirmation banner by secret holiday! i sort of wish i had a mini one at all times, what a fantastic reminder. she has other great banners too, see them all here.

it's october!

the year is flying by so fast, how is it already october??? to keep you cozy during these chilly weeks, make sure to download maeve's rich jewel-toned calendar! i love that this pattern reminds me a of a quilt, perfect to snuggle under with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.
