update

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

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?

On new years resolutions – UFO busting in 2017 – part 1

Usually I’m not a big fan of New Years resolutions and I would not like to say I have some this year, but there is a plan for my knitting. Maybe two or three weeks ago I felt like making another cardigan, a red one, I think I’ve mentioned the plan before. However just having finished my Herbert Niebling blanket (Eichenlaub) which took like 5.5 years from cast on to bind off I realised I enjoy that “finish object high” – don’t you do too?

So, instead of casting on new stuff I decided it’s about time to bust that UFOs that are hiding in boxes behind sofas.

I will definitely also make new stuff, in my instagram feed there is a designer who just shared a hat

another 365

365 days sounds a lot. It is a lot!

For me it certainly is. Especially the last 365 days were lot! I can tell you. After the disaster with my (meanwhile) ex last year, and even more difficult times with him, we got back together, everything seemed fine, now we’re separated and it’s all good. Very good from that point in my life 🙂

Actually I never felt better than right now, I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m thankful for every moment that I spent. Life is too short for waiting, too short to waste it. Life is great and it must be shared, with love and happiness as they multiply when you share them. Also share the hard moments and tears (there were a lot in the last 365 days) but they start to vanish when you share them.
