Hand-made Knit & Brocade Jeans

I almost forgot I have this scarf, it still has a tag on the back marked “hand-made.”  It reminds me when I was in middle school, I learned how to knit from my mom, and I made myself a lot of scarves, then sweaters. I don’t remember when I stopped knitting, but I think when there are a lot of hand-made knit items in the stores with beautiful style and reasonable prices, most of people like me just don’t want to harm our eyes and waste time knitting for ourselves anymore. No doubt your own hand-made knitting is more meaningful for you or the person you give it to, so maybe one day, I will start to knit again, no excuse.

In Chinese: 差点就把这条围巾给永久遗忘了, 那天找出来, 围巾的背面还挂有商标, 上面写着’手工编织” . 不禁让我想起在中学的时候, 从妈妈那里学会了编织, 给自己织了不少的围巾和毛衣. 真的不太记得是什么时候开始再也不碰织针了. 只是随着市场上越来越多的手工编织织品物美价廉的, 相信有不少人也和我一样, 不愿再浪费时间和眼力在编织上了吧. 不过话也说回来, 自己织的东西, 不管是给自己, 还是送人, 意义都是很温馨很深刻的, 所以也许有一天, 我会再重新试着织点什么, 不要再给自己任何借口.

    我在中學時有給自己織條小圍巾,是薰衣草色的。不過半途而廢,並沒有把它織完。很可惜。
    我家奶奶倒是很厲害,什麼都會織。小的像是襪子、圍巾,大的則是毛衣、毛毯。各種花樣都難不倒她!^^

    這組照片的背景好喜歡!嫣紅的楓葉好詩情畫意!

    Dear Hallie,
    With the holiday madness I hadn’t had a chance to visit your blog as often as I usually do, but I’m now catching up with all the looks I had missed. They are all fabulous of course, but these brocade pants and your abel jimmy choo pumps are killing them, they are so gorgeous and you mix them so well in your outfits. I also voted for you on Fashiolista and I wish you all the best in that contest, you definitely deserve to win. Hope you habe a fantastic day, and an even better 2013! Keep up your stylish work.
    Love,
    Abril

    I absolutely love these jeans<3 May I ask you what size are these jeans, because I'm planning to buy the gold ones, but we don't have J Brand in my country, meaning that I have to buy them online and I just want to make sure that I order the right size:-) I think I'm similar to you body wise, I wear a size 25 in jeans. Thank you so much in advance:-) Have a great day! xx

    好几年没织过东西了,曾经给女儿织过毛衣,自己编织可以随意设计,蛮好玩儿的~~~

    I lov this outfit and the scarf knitting is more like a winter activity for me when it’s cold outside and you’re sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea but since spring is just around the corner I need to finish my projects ASAP…
    enjoy your weekend.

    love,

    Anna
