Though I'm reluctant to wear an actual coat still, it's finally feeling like winter is here. All I want to do once I wake up is go back to bed, and after getting off work, I really would want to just snuggle up on the couch and binge watch movies until I fall asleep. Throughout the day, thoughts of cozying up with a cup of tea and a good book fill my head, as well as projects to knit, to sgraffito, to sew up.
Admittedly, I haven't been spending too much time on the interwebs lately because B and I have gone back to pottery, and I'm now so obsessively immersed in sgraffito, which means "to scratch" in Italian. Basically, it's a technique used in decorating pottery that involves carving marks on the clay surface. I've been playing with underglazes, decorative slip, and trying my hand at different tools. I'm sure they'll be popping up on my Instagram feed soon enough.
I've also picked up knitting again and since then have finished a throw and a couple of pillow poufs. I'm determined to make myself an assortment of hats and a big, chunky scarf within the next couple of weeks, so I've been scouring patterns on Ravelry and gawking at yarn.
But I still get dressed! And I've got photos as proof.
