Here’s my other photo location in my new flat – the terrace/balcony. It was probably the thing that made me choose this apartment – it’ll be so lovely in the summer*. And yes, I did think, oh that’ll be great for outfit photos! The pictures of the buildings are the view from the terrace.
I wore this for my first time going to the Stitch and Bitch knitting group. I’ve been out with this group three times already, it’s very active and everyone is really nice. And there’s quite a few people from outside the ‘EU bubble’ in it too. I don’t actually think anyone I’ve met works in the institutions themselves, although lots of people work for NGOs that are just there because of the Commission. Anyway, this knitting group is a great way to try out cafes and restaurants!
Of course the knitting group is completely international and because of this I discovered that there are loads of different styles of knitting, dividing broadly into the British/French style, where you move the yarn around the needle with your right hand (I think this may be called ‘throwing’?), as opposed to the Scandinativain/German syle where you hold the yarn in your left hand and pick it up with the needle (‘picking’). I use the British one, but the Scandinavian one is so much better, particularly for me and my right wrist RSI. I’ve decided to start doing it, but it’s hard, after the years of doing it the other way the synapses in my brain have solidified and it’s a major effort to do it any other way. I have to really concentrate, and look, whereas the British way I can do it while reading etc. Hopefully I can re-route my brain soon!
Outfit stats: * dress – I made it * brooches – I made them * shoes – gift, they’re from schuh * rollneck – zara? * tiger duck bag – gift *
Today’s question: What do think of this way of presenting the pictures?
* Which it already is, pretty much. Since I bought that brolly it has hardly rained, though the weird fog still makes an appearance every now and then. But it is warm now so i can live with it!
