DROPS fall/winter 2008-2009

I have been waiting it for soooooo long time!
DROPS fall/winter collection 2008/09 is finally up!

And I love it! Beautiful designs as always and lots of them are suitable for the beginners too. I do not consider myself as a beginner, but it is fantastic, because if someone is taking her first steps in the knitting world and can make something really sweet and good looking, then it definitely increase the motivation.

I won't enumerate the things I would like to knit from DROPS collection, because I like almost everything.

But I'm sure that the very first thing I will knit is this beret on the picture. How lovely a hat can be???? Not more than this one, I think...

Joana Vasconcelos

Joana Vasconcelos is artist from Paris who crochets both possible and impossible things.

She has made amazing sculptures- people, animals and others.

My favorite from this year is her Piano Dentelle, which you can see in her web gallery (year 2008).

At the moment she is taking part in a group exhibition "L'argent" in Paris, Le Plateau.
From July 24th you can see her solo exhibition in Palma de Mallorca.

The break is over


My 2 months blogging break is hopefully over and I will try to bring this site to life again :)

I will fly to Slovenia, Ljubljana next Tuesday and my yarn addiction wouldn't let me to visit the city without finding the yarn shops.
Thanks to Ravelry I find some tips how to reach the right places.
* Centromekur is in the center of Ljubljana, right next to the Preseren square (on the picture)
* Elna is at Gosposvetska street, next to hotel Lev.
* One shop should be at Rimska street, behind the Faculty of Arts
* and in the Citipark shopping center should be a yarnshop too.
I will try to visit some of those shops, but I'm not sure if I will have time for everyone.
But after the trip I will write what I found and what I can recommend.
