things in between

9/2

Yeah, when a blogger uses the date as a title you know that they are really low on creativity. At least it this doesn’t affect my knitting very much at the moment. Actually it might be that I use up all my creativity on other things.

A lot of things has happened in the last couple of weeks and I feel like I’m in some kind of limbo. I started studying to become a teacher but after one day I felt this nagging feeling that it wasn’t the right thing for me and after a week I quit completely. So now I’m out looking for a job, and polishing my CV and such. But at the same time as this went down me and my parents was out apartment hunting for me! We found one, bid on it and won! YAY! It’s in need of some renovating before I can move in but we hope┬áthat we’ll receive the keys in a week or so and then we can start tearing out the bathroom.
Due to this I spend sooo much time pinteresting interesting ways to decorate my upcoming new home, and it feels like I know everything they sell at IKEA at the moment.

I can’t wait to get started. I’ll keep you posted on the progress (and when it starts!) and in the meantime I’m playing around with my camera and some different lenses.

And maybe my spinning needs some approvement aswell

 

Also, I made a hat to wear as protection when I paint. We have to repaint every wall and ceiling. I’m so excited :D

(even though it might not show in this particular picture)

me late in the evening with a dirty mirror

 

I cast on 80 stitches on 5 mm needles, knit some rounds 2*2 ribbing, stockinette until 10 cm (4″) and then decreases on every other row in a crappy acrylic yarn from the bottom of my stash.

 

Since I’m half in the middle of packing up my shit for the move it’s really hard to photograph my latest FO but I do have a couple of nice things in store for you!

a new year, a new effort

Happy new year!

With all the christmas knitting and other holiday stuff out of my way I have much more time for fun knitting (’cause you know… christmas knitting…) and this blog in progress!
I’m planning to post the presents as I feel like it┬ábut I’m not sure I got good pictures of everything I made or really – of ANYTHING since winter is pretty dark up here i Scandinavia and we don’t have a lot of daylight. All the presents will be tagged using the christmas present tag.

This last time after christmas and after new year I’ve spent most of my time with netflix and knitting, and I guess that’s what I’ll be doing, except for the occasional coffee with a friend, until january 19, when school starts. I’ve finished the knitting on my Siri, knitted in my in ear headphones (now they don’t tangle! Yay!) and picked up a project I started in september. This project gave me a lot of headaches when I started it but now that I really put my mind to it I figured it out. At least I think I did. It’s a slow project with many parts and a gazillion ends to weave in but it’s going to be finished. Soon. We’ll see, and I’ll keep you posted!

christmas hiatus

I’m not sure that I’m “allowed” to call this a hiatus since I’ve barely started this blogging project. I am really enthustiastic about this, but right now I can’t even allow myself to embroider the header I’ve designed for the blog until all the christmas presents are done.

At least I’m starting to see the light in the end of the tunnel. I have 1,5 mittens left, 1 sock and a little remaking of a early-finished project from some months back. And I promise you that I will post pictures and links to the patterns of all the things I’m gifting!

Bare with me! <3
