Looks like I spent yet another night knitting and watching freaks and geeks, and instructional videos about knitting... However today was unique in that I did not make/consume polenta for the first time in a week. Pictures of the newest hat tomorrow (its done!). 

But in the meantime, let me recommend you some wonderful instructional videos about knitting, narrated by a lovely british girl:

My weekend:


Mmmmhhmmm, but to my credit, I did do real things as well. Card night with quite a gang, found the best coffee shop in florence, vip treatment at 'space,' family dinner, heart-to-heart in the middle of the street, and amelie. I have a renewed urge to chop off all my hair, dye it black and start wearing clunky black shoes. We are already the same person, I'm just missing the look. The hat is in the color of caval nero. Not with this crap lighting though, got to love the glow of the computer screen off to the side. I am obsessed with knitting, but to my credit I started this one on friday.

Footwear Midterm: Design for Dominatrixes

I am pretty pleased with these two. Originally I had three designs draw up during the test, but two out of the three aint bad. Right now it's all about: colorblocking, bold/chunky/statement, and dominatrixes. It's funny though, beside the colorblocking, none of that is very typical style inspiration for me. Or at least its never in the front of my mind. Just sharing the shoe-love, enjoy! (click to see bigger images)

Penguin will stop the death of print media

On my way home from class this afternoon I subconsciously decided to procrastinate by going to the bookstore. I say subconscious because I was fully aware that I had work to do, but hadn't the vaguest idea of its expanse. In other words, I really was planning on making a quick stop, churning out a paper and getting to sleep. Well the bookstore was more than just a quick stop, of course. I went in with a purpose, to buy a design book I have been thinking about since I first saw it three weeks ago (see, a thoroughly considered purchase, also it's italy-specific, so therefore counts as a souvenir). After finding the intended book I decided to wander up a level, just-because-you-know I had never been up there. Hello Penguin 'Great Ideas,' goodbye homework. Whoops. Please click through to the link. It's beautiful. What the Penguin publishing housing is doing with graphic design will save books. There is no circumstance that would make me choose an ebook version of any other these over their hard copies. They are a pleasure to hold, look at, and of course read. Judge the book. Judge the cover. They are beautiful. The great ideas series, which of course is not available in the states, brilliantly packages classic essays and works on philosophy in clean, fresh, unintimidating paper backs. I want to own (and read) them all. Too bad the collection in entirety will set you back over seven hundred dollars. Whoops.


hahahaahha… best email title line all year.
