I rewatched one of my favourite movies last night. When I was a teenager, my greatest wish was to have hair as red as Lola’s.

Now, I’m happy with just matching knitting… :)

Happy weekend!

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. yup, i’m right there with you! loved lola as a teen, even went so far as to try to dye my hair. but every time i thought it would turn out red, it went pink instead…

    • I tried too, many times, and always got just a natural reddish tone, which looked ok, but was not what I had intended. Until one day, in second year of university, a day before a really important interview (for a scholarship on which my whole next year depended), I asked my mom (who is a hairdresser) to dye my hair back to my natural dark brown (I had some roots showing and my colours were all over the place, so I wanted to make it look tidy) – and my hair decided to go completely Lola style!!! It was too late to try to fix anything, I had no choice but to go like that. In the end, it worked out, I got the scholarship, but several months later one of the interviewers told me that they had had a debate about the hair while making their selection…

    • See it! Leave aside the ‘shame’, it’s really a great fun movie :) The sweater is coming along… I kind of slowed down when I realized that after the sleeves are done I have to do the seaming – I’m a little scared of that.
