It’s all change round here!
I recently turned 24 (Yay Me!) and this new year definitely came with a feeling of change. I know I am still a young woman and I am definitely blessed to have all that I call mine, but I seriously felt like things were changing. It’s time to be a grown up.
This is not a blog post about how I feel so super grown and all my bad habits are behind me. Some… okay most of them are certainly still here. But this year, I have made a decision to be better. Just. Better. Where I was bad, I would like to become good; and where I was good, I am aiming to become better.
There is change in the air people! – Seriously,the weather is literally changing colours in England. Leaves are going from green to brown and the sky is going from blue to grey. Hello Autumn bye-bye Summer!
I saw this quote on instagram and it made me smile. (I saw it last year and thought it was a bit cheesy but this year was different :D )
I decided to be like the trees, and say goodbye to a few things. Starting with something I made with my two hands. I have outgrown it and now it’s time to say goodbye.
I knitted plenty in 2012. It’s from the Indigo publication designed by Kim Hargreaves. Let me tell you, this book is amazing. One of my favourites from Kim. You can check it out here.
I chose to knit plenty because the garment is simple, elegant and practical. a very beautiful piece. (It definitely deserved to be the cover photo.)
I love burgundy and decided to knit my very own plenty in that colour scheme.
This garment has been well loved, the fit, the colour, everything about it was beautiful and I plan to re-knit it again in the near future. But the time has come to say good bye.
Unfortunately, my plenty no longer fits and frankly, she is worn out.
So here’s to a new year and a better me – hopefully a less cluttered me.
Until next time. x Lydia
