Craft all the things

Because we're still seeing some snow around here, the knits are still out!
Pullover I knitted awhile back, no-name leggings, Timberland boots

And speaking of knitting, I recently passed Level 2 of the Master Hand Knitter program. Such a difficult level, but so worth it in the end. I was happy when I got the news from my co-chair! Will be enrolling in Level 3 (final level) as soon as I finish some other projects. Wish me luck, you guys:)

 On other crafting news, I'm trying to teach myself how to crochet. I learned when I was a kid, but have completely forgotten how to do it. Why do I want to learn again? Because it's all about the granny squares. I mean,  look at this awesome tunic from Zara!

And here are other stuff I saw in Zara that are inspiring me, sewing-wise:D I wanna make outfits like these! (I should point out that most of the time, how I actually look in these outfits are never quite what I had in mind...just saying....)



What have been inspiring you lately? Any new finds?

    Congratulations on getting your Level 2 and best wishes on all the other projects underway. I like the knit top you have on.

  11. You're a knitting super girl!! I've never gone beyond knitting or crocheting a scarf. I felt quite satisfied that I could do that and never bothered to better my kills.

  15. How come I see prettier Zara things in your pics than in the shop? Haha.. I went in recently, during our holiday, came out empty handed. Don't know why Zara clothes never inspired me. Are they good quality?
