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

It's been a busy two weeks

Oh my, I just realized I haven't posted in over a week! I do have good explanations for that though: first of all, I've been a bit ill with a cold. I still have a runny nose but I'm sure that'll pass soon.


Second of all, several of my colleagues have been away on vacation and I've had to fill up for them. I've been working like a madman! So in the evening the last thing I wanted to do was to turn on the computer again, not even for blogging!

I went to Frechen and all I got was yarn, friends and compliments

Filigran, Punta, Zauberball and Mexico

The Third German Ravelry Meet is currently underway - I was able to go yesterday with four other ladies from our knitting group in Essen. As Frechen is only an hours drive from here, it wasn't too big an effort.


We arrived too early and drank a coffee in a cafe nearby, then headed to the Meet. It was already crowded, especially around the yarn stands, so I quickly ran through the area to get an overview, and then sat down with a friend to knit.

I wanted to do a WIP Wednesday but...

Rhubarb pie

...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, for the rest of you here's a rough translation:

I'm ill

Just a quick note to say I'm ill and won't be posting in a few days until I get better.


Hope you enjoy your Easter and have a good time knitting!

A dream come true - Cuba

Havanna Malecon promenade from our hotel window

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.

Birthday party with pizza


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!
