On Nnenna’s Needles #21: Ombre-Like

Ombre-Like 1

Here’s a sneak peek of my latest knitting project, something I’m making for my new home. I’ve held back from decorating the place that I’m staying at currently because I know it’s only mine for the summer, but I’m already very excited about having my own place in the fall. I’ll have free license to decorate it however I want to and hopefully this project I’m working on will make the new apartment feel a little bit more like home.

Also, just wanted to tell you guys that I’ve got some exciting things for the blog coming up in July! I’ve been working really hard on this stuff behind the scenes and there’s only a couple more weeks until I can reveal it all to you, so stay tuned! =)

P.S. Ten points for anyone who can guess what this is going to be! :D

I love the summer and looking back at these pictures taken when I was home a few weeks ago reminds me of that. I love feeling the sun on my face and the wind in my hair. My favorite things to wear are dresses and skirts and summer weather is perfect for that. I don’t know what it is about summer, but I simply feel light and carefree. There are just so many good things that happen in the summer. Does anyone else love summer as much as I do?

In other news, I survived my first week of work! On Friday, because of a lovely concept called ‘summer hours,’ I even got out of work early! I’m slowly getting into the routine of waking up earlier and going to bed earlier than I used to. Believe me, it is a struggle because I am the kind of person that likes to go to bed at 3am and wake up at 12pm, haha! Anyways, the people seem nice and hopefully I’ll make friends soon :) Another challenge I’m having is figuring out what to wear to work! My office is pretty casual, but I took stock of my closet and realized that most of it is inappropriate to wear to work (usually the item is too short for the office). So, I’ve been trying to take advantage of the summer sales to buy some things that are appropriate. Do you guys have any tips to help me with this little problem or have you run into this problem yourself?

Also, over the weekend I created a tumblr! I’m hoping to post images that I’ve taken with my new camera and just generally share pictures that I find inspiring. I’m obviously very new to this, so if you’re on tumblr and there’s anything I should know, please do share! And leave me your links so I can browse your tumblrs too! :D
