Hello you! Great that you stopped by. This is Worsted-Knitt.net, a knitting enthustiasts archive blog and pattern depository.
I am Lumia aka Worsted Knitt and I passionately knitted from 2006 to around 2014. This blog covers that time and a few years after that. I do not actively tend to this blog anymore. You can find my patterns on here still and quite a lot of nice content to be honest - just nothing new.
My current project is my homestead and permaculture Beyond Buckthorns. Check that out if you like!
Well, like the title says. No matter how minimalist I try to live and how little I want to spend, if there's a cute, poor cat on something -anything-, I want it. Especially if it's hand made in Finland and something useful, too.
2017 was a good year. I'm so blessed having had several good years in a row - plus I do think a bit of an attitude change has helped also. A lot has happened, it's been our (me & hubbys) first full year in Finland, the year we started our business and a year of many ups and downs. I made you a little collage to enjoy, so please do! Click the pics to see the captions.
Since 2009 I have been doing so-called "101 in 1001" challenges
(see postings here: first, second.) My last one ended in June 2017. I have totally and completely neglected it since, say, 2015? Anyhow, I wanted to show you how I did, nonetheless. Let's see:
There is very little textile industry in Finland left. One big would-be-loss was the factory in Nokia which was to be closed down. It was announced late in 2015. Fortunately, another company was founded to take over the business and save the 86 jobs at the factory in Nokia, a nearby town - Nokian Neulomo.
