want list :: lock up your nanna.

One of the things I have always wanted to learn is to crochet. My great-grandma had this amazing talent for crocheting squares which then became the warmest little blankets ever, perfect for sisterly huddles and Mary Poppins viewing. The skill has been passed on to my grandma, and I should be next. Keep that old family tradition going, and the world a bit more toasty.

Somehow this managed to slip by my thoughtfully curated “30 before 30 list”, so let’s make it number 31. I’m always up for the challenge.

Leandra posted one of my all-time fave outfit inspirations earlier this year, and guess what the lucky duck / goddess of hilarity wore? A crochet-like Miu Miu mini dress. My dreams are fully expressed in this image.

Chances are I will never be able to pull off such a wonder, so I may just have to settle for the tote version instead.
