We knit: Birthday Cowls

I am absolutely addicted to knitting with Classic Elite's "Twinkle Soft Chunky". It's a 100% virgin wool with fibres from New Zealand that are manufactured in China... the softest ever! Initially I decided to knit a cowl for KMG with it, and then eventually concluded that each roomie needed one for their birthday. Since they were all roughly close together, I've been whipping these out!

Wool purchased at Gina Brown's.
Marian Cowl designed by Jane Richmond for KMG, modified to a double moss stitch in Quartz
Cellulose Scarf designed by Kristina Larson for JG knit on straight needles and seamed up the side in Haze
Darkside Cowl designed by Sara Fama for SA in Almond

snuggle up.


We listen: Battles + Tame Impala

We've got the new Battles album on repeat...

and can't get enough of Tame Impala "Inner Speaker"

Also, love turned into infatuation with Austra after seeing them at the Biltmore Cabaret last week.
Check them out!


We shop: shopdirtsa's etsy shop

We're obsessing over shopdirtsa's chalkboard wall maps found on etsy (officially addicted to etsy). For documenting future travels, and places you've been already, these are so wonderful! Not to mention you can wipe them and start again whenever you want. They're pliable and ship-able in a tube!
Also in love with these Scrabble letter pillowcases they sell... (!!!)


We DIY: 1 a.m. room decos & new loves

HL and me did some home deco at 1 am, so I finally got my Europe door photos up. So pleased with the results, and am quite honestly shocked by how great it looks. Big happiness, thanks Hann!

We shop: Jean Paul Gaultier Cuff/Ring

Jean Paul Gaultier has created some crazy stuff in his day, but this is getting a bit wild. Is it me or does this cuff/ring looks like it could double as some kind of torture tool? At 845$ it has sold out at Opening Ceremony!
... (don't worry you can sign up for the OC stock notifier, if you're concerned)

this can't be comfortable.

We shop: Yanko Designs

We've lusted over these Yanko shot glasses before at Vincent Park. They come in black & white, and are reasonably priced at 28$ (if you want to be taking the coolest shots ever).

You can buy them online at Yanko Design, where they have many other amazing, functional wonders...

We see: miu miu Fall 2011 Campaign

The birds are back! Hailee Steinfeld photographed by Bruce Weber for miumiu.
