Inspiration: Costumes of The Golden Compass

Image
I've seen The Golden Compass a few times awhile back, but it was just a few days ago that I watched it with my daughter. I did not realize before how beautiful the costumes were on this movie. The costume designer Ruth Myers did such a phenomenal job in not only capturing the characters' qualities through their wardrobe, but also in just how truly beautiful the pieces are.

How are you all doing? How are you spending your time while everything is on lockdown?

New uniform

Being in quarantine means this is what I wear most days now....

I know...I know....Most people actually dress up even at home to have a semblance of normalcy. Well, not me.
Soooooo....I thought I'd share some of the pyjama sets I've seen that I really like:)

Are you a pyjama fan?
Hope you are all staying safe!

Inspiration: Wes Anderson and his Isle of Dogs

With the quarantine going on right now, my family and I have been doing the "Netflix and chill" a lot lately. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you may know I'm a big horror film fan, but alas, it's not something I can really watch with my kids (especially the youngest one).

Isle of Dogs (by Wes Anderson) is the answer....the one movie  I can watch with them over and over, and good thing, because this is probably one of my all-time fave movies ever (hence the stand-alone post about it:))

Next to Hayao Miyazaki films, Isle of Dogs is the kind of film I would like to make...if I ever decide to be a film maker:D

PS Having an awesome voice cast (ie Ed Norton, Bryan Cranston) doesn't hurt either.

Have you seen this film?

Oh... what crazy times we are living in!

During this depressing timeline we are living in, I find it hard to find anything to blog about. What do I write about? There is so much fear and uncertainty going on right now... I'm at a loss.

Everywhere in the world, the covid19 has taken such a hold, not just in China, Iran and Italy (the most affected countries). Cities are on lockdown. Travel has been banned in many places. Hospitals are all being overwhelmed. Social distancing and staying home are the new norm (well, I hope it is for everyone).

My kids are all home right now. All our plans for March Break have been cancelled, and they are all home until April 5th. Who knows? This can be extended to God-knows-when.

For an introvert like me, being at home all the time is really par for the course. As someone who genuinely doesn't like socializing much, it's really not hard. I knit. I like to draw. I binge-watch horror stuff....😄


How is it where you are? Is your city on lockdown? How are you affected by the situation?…

Sheer power

I usually don't wear see-through tops, but my mom seems to like buying them, and when she doesn't like them anymore, she passes it on to her kids:D I must admit I wear them a lot, especially lately since I'm not buying clothes this year....hehe

Anyhoo, with all these covid19 thing going on, just wanna say to all of you...Stay safe!

What have I been watching #16

Stuff I've been watching on TV lately:D


images from imdb.com unless otherwise stated
 1) Knives Out
 Such a fun whodunit film, with a great cast and great plot twist. And plus, SO MUCH KNITWEAR in this film! I want to make all of them!:D

2) Chernobyl
 I decided to finally watch this after seeing on the news that the people behind Chernobyl are filming the Last of Us series (which is a video game I've been wanting to play for ages.)

Man....what a great show Chernobyl is. Heart-wrenching, maddening...so many emotions while I watched this. Highly recommend if you haven't seen it yet.

3) Rampage
Just a fun watch:) Like a cross between Jurassic Park and Godzilla:D
4) Jojo's Bizarre Adventures Season 2 Been waiting for this season to finally be on Netflix so yay! Ive only seen a few episodes but it's pretty good so far. Just another fun watch:)
5) Annabelle Comes Home Although this is not the scariest horror franchise, I still like the Annabelle movies and this one has a…

If you guys follow me on Twitter, you might know this already, but I want to do an actual blog post about it because it has been such a big part of my life for 6 years.

On Feb 28th, I found out from The Knitting Guild Assocation that I have successfully passed the last level of the Master Hand Knitter program, and am officially a certified Master Knitter now. WUT?!?!?!


Although I didn't discuss it here a lot, I've been doing the program since 2014 and have posted updates here once in awhile. Let me tell you, it was a long and sometimes hard journey. Along the way, I took other courses from TKGA, such as the Basics Basics Basics and the Swatch To Sweater course.

The whole MHK program is based on the ancient method of apprenticeship levels to mastery when it comes to crafting, so the three levels really push you. It really is an amazing program!

I've had a lot of items to do (and re-do) so I thought I'd do a visual re-cap here of all the work that was put into it.

The wr…
