(things i do: monday)

I'm keeping myself warm today and staying at home, listening to Andrew Bird and knitting the afternoon away. After giving it much thought, I've decided to knit a small collection of one-of-a-kind accesories. I will keep you posted on how it goes. I'm thinking about sewing a few items as well, but I'm still learning... might give it a try. 

I watched Fellini's La Dolce Vita yesterday night for the first time. I felt blown away by some scenes and particularly enjoyed watching Nico before she became the Nico I came to know thanks to the Velvet Underground. And Anita Ekberg walking through the Fontana di Trevi was mind-blowing. 

I hope that most of you (the ones living on the northern hemisphere) are enjoying the start of your summer as much as I'm enjoying the start of our winter. 

The dress was a christmass gift from my ex-boyfriend. I now feel slightly guilty about making him a mix-cd. Might have to improve my present this year.

Pretty dress and cardigan. A mix-cd can be very thoughtful. :)
