Life of Worsted Knitt - travels, plans, gardening...

New direction for Worsted Knitt

So, as you must have noticed, my knitting mojo which kind of faded away some years ago never really returned. I haven't been blogging weekly, not even monthly, and hardly ever about my knits.

 

I am still here though, and I am doing interesting things, so I've decided to let go of the knitting-only idea of my blog worsted-knitt.net, and make it more of a personal blog; a place where I can talk more about things that matter to me today in this time and place of my life - things like

Bremen

Hi my dear readers (if there are any of you left?) - it's me, your absent Worsted Knitt.

 

As you may know, my knitting passion burned down somewhat a year or two ago, and it hasn't really been rekindled to the extent it used to be. I am still hoping it will, but I'm not forcing it. I am enjoying sewing, theatre, gardening and other hobbies, and working on some knits whenever I feel like it. I promise, the next post will be about finished knits!

101 in 1001 vol 3

Go to nature weekly

I started my third 101 in 1001 challenge and realized I didn't share it at all. The previous ones I have shared 99% completely (see them here: first, second), but this new one is really personal, so I'll just share a few samples. The last one went really bad, but I feel this time around I have some really interesting goals on the list and am really looking forward to achieving them all!

Finland Summer of 2014

Cherries

This summer was also spent (well, a few weeks of it... let's face it, the best weeks) in Finland, my home country. The weather was kind, and the people were great. Here are some pics for you to look at:

 

We picked cherries (actually, we cut the tree too!)

 

The yard was summery

 

We replanted some trees, here's my birch tree!

 

How was your summer? Please leave a comment!

New York

Downtown Manhattan from the Empire State Buidling

This March I made my first-ever trip to the USA. more specifically New York. 10 days there were well spent with friends, walking the city (we only missed Queens and Long Island), looking at the beaufiful Hudson river as well as the views from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Here are some impressions for you, too!

Merry Christmas!

So, this Christmas is not the best so far - it's warm and the fields are green, and me and hubby are both ill... but it's Christmas anyway, so it can't be all bad!

 

I wish all my readers a lovely Christmas and a happy New Years - I hope 2014 brings us all health, wealth and happiness.

2012 knitting review - it's not so little after all!

Yarn from Finland

Happy New Year 2013! How has the new year started for you?

 

I have in fact finished a pair of socks (post is coming) and started a new shawl, so I am hoping the knitting mojo is finally getting back, even a bit. But as I was looking through my posts from 2012, I noticed that I have indeed been knitting this year and finished a few pretty things!

 

Lots has happened in 2012 with the blog and in my life:

I've got a sewing machine!

My sweing machine

Meet my new Singer sewing machine, which my dear father-in-law gave to me. It's old (the manual is from 1983), simple and exactly what I wanted!

 

See, I've been wanting a sewing machine for years now, and finally with my own room (I guess we adults should call it an office... so my office) I have enough space for it! Hooray!

 

It really is a simple machine with all the stitches a beginning sewer may need and more, things like a buttonhole program and a special foot for zippers.
