fave moments

it is just not right

I started and finished a cowl.

Right now I am looking for another knit. Something smaller, at least in the beginning, that I can carry around, take on trips. So I’m shopping my stash and find not only a surprisingly good amount of yarn to choose from, but also more WIPs. not-fair. I thought I listed all in my last busted post. But no, there is also the mini hexagon table cloth I started about a year ago and the dotted rays by westknits, which I realize just now I never shared before. Although that one was quite a bitch! Beautiful knitting

niebling as a blanket

FO – the blanket that was a doily

Some pictures, finally! The blanket is now comfy on my lap, warming me, not only from the outside, but from the inside too. It makes me happy. It makes me smile. If it was food, I’d say it’s soul-food. I rarely feel such pleasure when finishing something. This blanket was an idea I had six years ago. Back then there was another lacy blanket very popular. I can’t recall it’s name, though I would recognise it the minute I see it. It took the idea of a classic table doily and using the thickest warmest yarn it was turned into a beautiful cover up for those cold evenings you spend on a sofa, cuddled up.

Busted – 1st edition

So this year will be the year I finally clean my house of all the wips and ufos. It’s decided. It will happen. It started already. It’s also the year of thinking before casting on. Yes thinking. Like do I need a new red cardigan? Yes I do! But – I will be disciplined and finish at least one from the ufo mountain before I start a new one. And so the year started and so it will go on. I’m positive.

Let’s have a look, shall we?

Framed – Jan 2017 – the orange explosion

ha, I just realise how fitting todays title is in two kinda ways. My blog went through the roof, cause of my orange Cyclone hat and then there is the orange political thing. I don’t want to talk about that though. I’m only glad that a lot of people use the power they have as people. Democracy is people after all.

So, my January, right? Well first back to the orange theme. Oh my !!! I would have never ever believed that such a simple hat pattern would create such a hype. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. It’s just so ridiculous! This blog has already over 40% of last years total visits. It’s January folks! January.. and more than 40% of people. It’s crazy. THANK YOU!!
