Knit Pick

Posted in art, fashion by Dani on December 6, 2009

Hello, fabulous readers! I hope that all of you had a wonderful weekend filled with oodles of rest between manic spurts of writing and studying for finals! The Amazing Shannon recommended a Norwegian website that I should visit all about Norwegian knitting called, Pickles. Cutest title ever, right? (Norway + Yarn = Super FUN! Haha.) …and boy, was she right!

Along with how-to posts on any knitting item from fashion to interior design, this incredibly ingenious blog also  dishes up loads of eye candy in the form of delightfully creative cupcakes (…and muffins too!). I mean: cupcakes are a girl’s best friend. Yum! Haha.

Below are some of my absolute fave pieces on the blog. Want to see the original post of the following items? Just click on the pic! Haha.


This bolero looks so comfy and chic at the same time!

Strike a pose!

This hat looks so luxurious! I am totally digging the pom pom. Haha.

This pom pom makes me feel all "warm and fuzzy."

How gorgeous is this color?

I love how bows have the ability to make anything cute.

The contrast between the neon tank and the pastel sweater is simply divine!

This close-up reminds me of cotton candy.

How cute and innovative is this friendship head band!

A double take: But now it's a bracelet. How versatile, eh?

So stylish.

This adorable accessory totally deserves a close-up!

Interior Design

How gorgeous is this space; and that lamp(!): to die for. Very IKEA. Haha.

Close up!

Let there be light! Haha.

It's that time of year again: Christmas! I love how colorful and fun that wreath looks.

You know how I love my CUs. Haha.

What a great way to perk up a room right up!


What do you get when you put cotton, yarn, cloth, and golden buttons all together?

Surprise! It's a teddy bear! Haha.

Aren’t these pieces absolutely adorable? Thank you so much, Shannon! You’re the best!

I hope that everyone has an absolutely terrific evening! Now, please go get some rest… I’m sure that you totally deserve it!

Good night,

    I love your blog but I wonder how do you find the time to blog during finals week? Do not work too hard. All my love, mom

      Hmm… that’s a really good question. That’s why I took a two-day hiatus from blogging in order to finish my final papers in a timely manner. Haha.

    Dani, you’re too sweet. I didn’t even see these pics when I was on the site… great choices! (Makes me want to learn how to knit!)
