Travel Diary: Vienna 2019

I’m back from Vienna! I spent most of the time in the archive doing research, but I tried to make the most of the time I had left to explore the city. This was important to me because I had felt rather lonely and depressed during previous research stays there, especially in winter. I made…

Three Cities, Three Dresses: Heidelberg

Today’s the day! After much procrastination and the wonderful time killer that is knitting with silk yarn, I’m writing the last installment for “Three Cities, Three Dresses” and introduce to you: Heidelberg and the red version of the dress. Red is my favourite colour, that’s why it was only natural to make a pattern I…
