Last weekend (a long weekend due to Whit Monday) me and Nick went to Brussels for a little city getaway. It was brilliant! We got there on Saturday, the first WWKIP day this year, and the Brussels Stitch and Bitchers had organized a cool flashmob-type event on Grand Place, the main square in Brussels: a yarn fight!
...I dont have anything that interesting on the needles at the moment! I am working on a scarf, a basic baby blanket, and I think there's even a shawl in the UFO basket, but I'm just not feeling the "post about these knits NOW" vibe, you know?
So I decided to show you my rhubarb pie instead!
The Finnish speakers among you can read the recepie at Kotikokki.net, for the rest of you here's a rough translation:
As you may have guessed, my two weeks of "making a dream come true" was a trip - to Cuba!
I've been hoping to travel there since I was 15, and this year a lady in my knitting group finally talked the sense in me to indeed make this dream come true - it's not that travelling to Cuba is impossible, it's just that I always taught it would be very expensive.
I haven't been blogging much this week, as I've been working hard in the office - and preparing for a party!
I had my birthday this week, and yesterday I threw a little party for friends. We had pizza, knitting and games on the Wii. It was so much fun!
I promised not to post pictures from the guests, and I didn't take any pictures on the knitting (somehow I didn't think of that) so here's a few of the pizzas for you instead. They tasted just as good as they look!
It's been a week since I went to Bocholt with some new knitting friends of mine. Why did we go there? Well, we wanted to see the knitting exhibition (link in German) the textile museum has on at the moment, and we wanted to have a good time knitting in the train there and back.
Greetings from Finland! I spent my Christmas with my family at my Mum's and loved it. I like living abroad, but I do miss my family a lot, so being able to spend Christmas with them is always a very speial treat.
Worsted-Knitt.net will be having a Christmas break to enjoy family, peace and good food without internet. That means no new blog posts, comments approvals, no tweeting and no Facebook updates. I'll be back before New Year's though!
I thank you all for reading my blog, your comments and support, and wish you a very merry Christmas (or holiday season, if you wish) and a good time with your loved ones!
Ok, I know this seems quite a spring from my usual knitting content, but the theme of this site is also "concious & sustainable living". I think minimalism fits into that perfectly. That's why I wanted to share this great sale by Karol Gadja.
