#ABOUTYOUxSPRING - ABOUT YOU Give Away

13 04 2016

Even with all the constant changes and the secret world of pin algorithm truth is, I still love to check regularly into my Pinterest.

It relaxes and inspires me to search for new pins and I have fun to create beautiful new boards.

My newest addition is a collaboration with AboutYou, a young german fashion online store.

AboutYou is truly all about you; helping you to find your very own individual fashion style out of hundreds of pieces and accessories by top brands.

With the help of filters and style consulting AboutYou makes great suggestions based on your preferences.

It was super easy for me to find pieces I like (truth is, I already put an order in... I fell in love with this jeans tunic...) and I will keep adding more pins together with other spring inspiration from around the web to this board in the next weeks - so please follow along if you like.

#ABOUTYOUxSPRING

Hello Spring Cleaning! DIY Crochet Or Knit Dish Cloths Out Of Dish Cloths

16 02 2016 DIY

Here is a super simple and quick idea to make spring cleaning more fun:

Cut some yarn out of simple store bought dish cloths (they just cost pennies - at least here in Germany) and crochet or knit your very own unique dish cloth with it.

Really a few minutes project! 

Of course your new dish cloths will be washable - I wash mine on a hot cycle and they come out perfectly clean and fine.

Here is a super simple and quick idea to make spring cleaning more fun:  Cut some yarn out of simple store bought dish cloths (they just cost pennies - at least here in Germany) and crochet or knit your very own unique dish cloth with it.  I love my pretty crocheted Harlekin dish cloths and Chevron dish cloths still very much and we use them every day - but in wintertime the cotton takes some time to dry.  Those cloths from the store are made of some fast drying, thin fabric but I like my dish cloths smaller and more compact instead of large and thin and so I decided to cut them up...  If you like to give it a try put several of the thin cloths exactly on top of each other and start cutting on the right outside.  Cut in rounds towards the middle (you can adjust the corners a bit if you like) of the cloths to get as much lenghts as possible.  Roll into balls - you can tie the yarn strips together.  I chain about 15 for the crochet dish cloths and worked with a hook size 10mm.  The finished cloths are about 18x18cm  For the knitted version I casted on 18 stitches and used a 10mm circular knitting needle.   But you can adjust all these to your liking - maybe cut wider strips for an even chunkier knit oder make the cloths smaller...  Happy Spring Cleaning!
