In love with my knitted snood:)

Winter seems to have mellowed out since the Christmas markets invaded Berlin during the Christmas cheer period, so my newly knitted snood has not been required of late. 

I knitted this snood just in time for the winter and I thoroughly recommend everyone knitting one! It was just so handy, plus I love the word 'snood'. When ever I think of the word snood it makes me smile as it reminds me of Dr. Seuss. It is such a Seussy sounding word:)

Regarding these images, Michael and I spent the night drinking Gl├╝wein (mulled wine), eating currywurst and taking photos with our usual little medium format camera in black & white. Though I am glad that the Christmas markets last for only a few weeks. You get over them pretty fast!    

SNOOD TUTORIAL COMING SOON..............
I love my snood so much that I want to spread the snoody love by posting a TUTORIAL for this particular snood. I will post it in the coming days so keep an eye out.

REFASHION - 2 skirts from 1

REFASHIONING THE SKIRT
I love the challenge of deconstructing clothing and making something new. I bought this old skirt a while ago and have turned it into 2 different skirts. I have not fully completed the second skirt, but here is the first one. For this version of the skirt I used the under side of the material. 

A SIMPLE JERSEY TOP
I am in the process of finalising the design for the Fickle Sense  eco tops... which will hopefully be ready within the next few months on my Etsy page. This top is a bit of a taster.

Back from home!

After a month of soaking up the warm sun rays (well, 40 degree heat  rays of sunshine) in Perth, we are now back in wintery Germany. Bbbrrrrr it is cold. My tolerance for the cold is completely shot. I hate the thought of going outside...yes I am a complete wimp!

Considering that this 
is the first post for 2013, I thought that it would be a good idea to celebrate the successes and fav finds of 2012. Starting with Fickle Sense features. 


Thanks to both both pattern booth! and KreuzbergKalender for featuring some Fickle Sense handmade items
