Get back into an old hobby

I used to a lot of drawing and painting but haven´t picked it up in about 10 years.

So I bought some watercolors and I have painted one picture of lemons. I decided to start painting fruits because they are simple then I´ll maybe go into flowers.

I haven´t used watercolors much before, I used to use acrylics but decided to change it up. The watercolors are much softer and warmer then the acrylics (and less messy)



So I´m pretty happy with my picture and I´m glad I took a picture of it with my phone before my bunny bit one of the corners (he´s so bad)

I also want to pick up drawing again, I want to start doing some easy going doodleling.

Listen, watch, read

 Listen: Kæla mikla. An ecxellent coldwave band from Iceland. I have been listening to them on replay this whole fall.


Watch: Black lagoon on Netflix. It´s about a bunch of modern day pirates living on a island that is morally lacking. It´s fast paced and loud. It reminds me somewhat of Quentin Tarantino and John Woo.


Reading: The legend of Sleepy Hollow by Irving Washington. For my bookclub I read the legend of sleepy hollow. I had seen the movie many years ago and the book is nothing like the movie. In the book Ichabod Crane is sort of unfortunate looking and (spoilers) it doesn´t end very well for him. It was a fun and short read and now I want to read something more by Irving Washington.

The silent vloggers

 

So my newest obsession are the silent vloggers on youtube. They who I watch are from Korea, Japan and one from China.


In these videos wich are mostly made by women, they do things like cook, bake, craft, garden and snuggle their pets under calming music, without idle chatter.

It´s very relaxing watching these videos and a nice change from the overly peppy and in your face vloggers that can be quite annoying.

I really think everybody needs something calming in these covid times.


Here are some of my favorite silent vloggers

My new flatmate.

 





So in august I got a pet bunny. I have wanted a pet for a long time but always lived somewhere with a no pet polacy.

His name is Kormákur and he´s two years old.


He´s a bit naughty chewing on things like electric cables so I have to get his some sticks and branches.


He´s very cuddly but he doesn´t want to be held.

He often sits next to me and pokes my hand for me to pet him.

He also poke me in the butt when I´m sleeping, trying to wake me up and feed him I guess. I think that´s hilarious.

I hope we can be together for a long time, I like his personality alot and I live alone so it´s nice to come home to somebody.

I joined a book club

I have been meaning to do it for a long time and I found a book club that fit me right.


It´s called the sleepy hollow book club and we read classics and children´s books.

This october we are reading the legend of sleepy hollow by Washington Irving and I look very forward to start.


Here is a link to the book club if anybody is interested.

And here is a youtube channel run by the same people.

It´s a charming life

One more pair of socks.



 


So I crochet one more pair of socks. You can never have too many pairs of handmade socks and I wear them all year around.


I have noticed that my crochet socks don´t get as many holes as the knit ones wich is good because fixing holes is so boring.


The only thing I don´t like about these socks is the ribbing, it´s too loose.

I´m thinking of starting knitting the ribbing for my crochet clothes.

I usually crochet front post/back post ribbing and it can be kind of loose and dosn´t do that thing it´s supposed to, to stretch and retract.
