Although I have been using Instagram for quite a while now, I don't have a public account. Or rather, I didn't - because earlier this week I switched the button from private to public. I feel this comes with an obligation to go out for an arty cappuccino more often and to spot all kinds of quirky details in the wild... Anything to feed my account, right?! *Ahem*

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that it might take me a while to get used to the fact that it's now a public account. But without joking: I'm tremendously excited about the prospect of having another creative outlet. I'm also tremendously anxious that - with one unfortunate swipe on my tablet (they happen) - I will publish an uncensored picture. ;-) In general I will - from now on - post about works in progress on Instagram where as on my blog I will focus on finished works. You'll find yarn on both!

Anyway! Here's a taste of the older pictures you will find on my Instagram. There are quite a few older pictures that you might have seen popping up on this blog before, but there are a whole bunch of new ones too. I hope you'll enjoy it.

  3. What are you doing to me woman?! I'm seriously tempted to go back on Instagram again now!!!!!!! Ha ha! Yes, I bet it feels like a big step to go public after being private. I miss instagram a bit, as so many regular bloggers stopped blogging in favour of it, but I think if I did, I'd have to go back to it with a very different attitude as I did before. We shall see. Gosh I love your images. Drool worthy, head inspiring, dreamy.......I could go on, and
